have stayed at Summer Sands numerous times over the years and it never disappoints. The location is fantastic, walk to the beach, restaurants and shops right on wrightsville beach. The rooms are comfortable and well appointed and the staff is always very friendly.

I really liked the location of the hotel. Although, not on the beach it was a very short walk to it (just across the street). It was within walking distance to the restaurants. We had a room on the first floor overlooking the pool and it was great having a balcony as it felt

Its not made perfectly clear on their website as to the exact location to the beach for this hotel . Its states " just steps away from the beach ". It is across the street from the beach and faces the waterway ... not the beach so its more than just a few steps .

Response from laura s, Manager at Summer Sands Suites

Cindy, I do apologize if the descriptions we post lead you to believe that we were ocean front. We do not intend to mislead anyone by stating online or on the phone that the hotel is ocean front. The hotel is on the beach strand and as such as two sides of the hotel. One side (I think where you stayed) faces the Intra-coastal waterway and the other side faces the ocean. There is no ocean view until you reach the third floor of the ocean side as the top of the palm trees by the pool and a building on the other side of the street do partially obstruct the ocean. From the ground level of the hotel the beach access path is a short walk, possibly 60 yds to the beach. We do hope that once guests realize that the convenient location lends to other attractions that include dining and shopping are also just steps away from the hotel they find that they have reached a perfect destination.

"Top floor has best views"
"We had a room overlooking the pool so it was nice to sit on the balcony and not have the noise of the street which other balconies faced."
"The higher the floor the better, but pet friendly rooms are only allowed on floor one."
"stay away from the elevator on the third floor!"
"My preference is to view the intercostal waterway."
