Headed through Delray Beach, looking for a place to stay before getting on a cruise ship in Ft. Lauderdale. Stopped at this hotel based solely on TripAdvisor reviews, and was not disappointed. Beautifully landscaped property, with luscious green space that overlooks the ocean. Nice little sitting area right above the beach walk that offers views of both the property and the ocean.

We stayed in a small first floor studio which provided a queen sized bed, 2 swivel rockers and a small dining table. Kitchen area provided amenities that would allow one to cook simple meals (although we didn't need to do that!) The lay out of the room is a bit odd with the bathroom and a 'closet' type space off of the main area, but it worked for us. The room is nicely decorated, and everything was very clean. You can tell that the management and owners take pride in their property.

We would definitely stop here again, especially given the same situation. It was a nice quiet stay for us, but the manager told us that they have frequent weddings and receptions on the property. I would assume that it might get a bit noisy in that instance.

Perfect beach location. The ocean is just a few steps from your door. Great, friendly staff. Pool is clean. Cabanas provided on the beach. Picnic tables in landscaped area with Tiki house right by the ocean. Location is close to shopping for groceries. Can't go wrong with this one if you want great ocean views and relaxation.

We enjoyed are stay. Clean studio. Two issues:
1) Offered coffee and coffee maker but not cream or sugar. Drove to Dunkin Donuts for coffee.
2) Hair drier in bathroom and exposed live wire. My husband was shocked a bit. Drier is also right next to the bathroom sink. My husband let the office manager know that was on duty and his response was "Well no one here did it". Really? They came and removed the hair drier.

The palm trees and beach are beautiful. Well kept property. In spite of the issues, we would like to return.

Room Tip: Beds are firm. Not good if you're not used to firm beds.

We spent a 5 day extended weekend at Wright By The Sea and enjoyed it. It is located on a sandy beach that is great for walking and looking for shells. The grounds are well kept and the pool was very nice.

The rooms are a bit old but are well equipped. I would not hesitate to visit again the next time we are in the area.

Spent 6 nights at WBTS and now lament I'm back in Ohio. The facility is a throwback to "Old Florida" in the best sense. Well kept, clean, lush, refreshing, quiet, friendly..... (did I say relaxing)
Jack and his staff do an excellent job of keeping the apartments in charming shape. This isn't a condo community.....it's more of just a community. Likely not for the those who desire a "no holes barred" experience. Just right for those who want a relaxing, easy paced retreat. Worth noting - weddings apparently are held on the grounds during some weekends. Not sure if that changes things....I'd sure like to be invited to one held there. Also, no restaurant on grounds or within walking distance but tons by car within 5 minutes over the causeway.
We loved Wright by the Sea.

We just returned from a quick weekend get-away at Wright by the Sea and absolutely loved it! We will definately return. Even though it's an older facility, our 2nd floor 1 bedroom apartment was wonderfully clean, comfortable and tropical. Every room is overlooking the ocean and the grounds, pool and beach are immaculate. The staff were extemely friendly and accomodating. Thank you Wright by the Sea, for a perfect weekend!

Room Tip: The 2nd floor gets a wonderful breeze

I decided to go to this hotel after reading all the good reviews it had been given by other members. I was not disappointed. We rented a two bedroom, two bathroom apartment. The apartment is very compact but has everything you would need such as, fully equipped kitchen, nice living room and dining table. Beach cabanas are included in the room price as well as beach towels. Service is friendly and flexible. Beautiful well kept green areas, nice pool and beach.
Location in perfect because it is very close to Atlantic Bld where you find all the restaurants, small shops and bars and yet you are in a very quiet peaceful place at the hotel itself. I would not hesitate to recommend this wonderful small hotel.
