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

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. Summer Sands provided our #1 priority... More

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!

The room was lovely....and very clean. Beds and furniture was comfortable. Enjoyed relaxing on the balcony overlooking the pool. We had everything we needed. Staff was extremely helpful and pleasant. Location was perfect.....so close to the ocean and shopping area and restaurants you don't don't need a car. I will go back again and I can't wait. Heaven on Earth!

This was our second stay at Summer Sands. We love the location--a block from the beach, grocery store, ice cream, and coffee. The hotel is very clean and comfortable and has a nice pool.

Awesome hotel! The value was fantastic and the bathroom and kitchen and bedroom were very nice. Great walkabiity to the ocean and a few local restaurants, parks, running track.

Great, we are so pleased to have hit the mark. We have taken action on the couch and added some very attractive new colored covers. The light color did lend itself to stain quite easily.
