We recently visited Wrightsville Beach for the first time while planning a tour of UNC Wilmington. We stayed at the Summer Sands Suites and it was a great place. The room fit our needs perfectly. My daughter especially loved the lighting and makeup mirror in the bathroom. The hotel is in an ideal location with the beach on one side... More

Summer Sands is a good location being so close to the beach and South Beach Grill right next door. There are numerous restaurants within walking distance. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The pool was recently changed to salt water and is so refreshing.

This is hands down the best location to stay in Wrightsville beach! The prices cannot be beat and you will never need your car once you arrive. The condos are perfect since you can bring your own snacks, take home leftovers, cook, drink, etc. The bed are very comfortable and the two tvs are a great convenience. Having a balcony... More

Just got back... Rooms were very nice.. Both King Size bed and Murphy bed was comfortable. Location is great. Reasonably price, Within walking distance to everything. Just right across the street from the beach. Walk is short as I've stayed at other beach front properties that had a longer walk :)

Nice rooms with full size fridge and kitchenette. Clean. Second row from beach. Beach view from balcony. Laundry service available. Lock valuables in safe. I had $20 taken which was hid under clothes in drawer. My fault. There is a safe in room. Easy parking. We never moved our car. Could walk to everything.

Great apartment style rooms. Loved the Murphy bed in living area for our kids. We were able to cook simple meals with the kitchen, which saves money. Very convenient to beach and restaurants. Comfortable beds and clean rooms. Great pool. We would stay again.

Just got back from our stay. The suite was perfect for our family. We had our children with us and it was nice to be able to have our own space at night. They fit in the Murphy bed comfortably. Loved the kitchen with all needed accessories. Everything was clean. The location was great. Very close beach access as well... More

Sheranae, Thank you so much for taking the time to post such a nice review. The suites at Summer Sands do give everyone that little extra room weather traveling with children or even a couple.

We enjoyed 6 nights at Summer Sands in mid June 2016 and couldn't have been more pleased. While the exterior is fairly ordinary, the rooms are lovely, clean, spacious and very comfortable. Love the Murphy Bed. I am a mom with two male teens and the floor plan was perfect for my privacy while giving them space to do their... More

My friends and I loved everything about our great condo on the sound side at Summer Sands this past Memorial Weekend. The balcony provided the perfect perch for pre-dinner drinks while we enjoyed watching the traffic below, and Saturday morning's Bloody Mary special at Southbeach Grill next door was just what the doctor ordered.

Thank you so much for your glowing review. It sounds like the weekend was just what the doctor ordered. Our motto is exactly as you have stated, leave your car keys in the room, you won't need them after you check in. I will have to check out the Bloody Mary bar next door at South Beach it sounds wonderful.... More

Summer Sands is a perfect location on Wrightsville Beach, easy walk to the beach, restaurants and the cutest local grocery store, Roberts. The room was a great size, clean and the amenities were very helpful. Full size fridge and a microwave/mini oven combo. Staff were friendly and efficient. Would definitely stay here again!
