“Rare indeed!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2014

Wright's is a rare find, indeed! We've been enjoying our stays here for a good
many years, and it's always the same...pristine, comfortable, quiet, reliable, attractive
and good value. Not many apartment-type hotels are located literally 'on the beach',
between the coastal road and the ocean...Wright's is an exception. Walk out of your
apartment (on 2-stories only), across the immaculate lawns, past the heated swimming
pool, and you're on the huge sandy beach which seems to go on forever. And a real
bonus, car parking is on-site and free!

Room Tip: Ask for ground floor if you wish to avoid the outside steps up to the second level.

Stayed for five nights on this wonderful property. The grounds and rooms are immaculate, the pool is heated with more than enough lounges and umbrellas, and it is truly right by the sea. There are cabanas on the sand, and the beach is uncrowded. The staff is so accommodating and friendly.
We booked the studio, which in reality was a 300 square inch large room, with a king bed, a table with chairs, a club chair, and a complete fully stocked kitchen including a full sized refrigerator. There is a small table and two chairs outside on the balcony, which is where we ate our breakfast while gazing at the trees, pool, and ocean. Can't think of anything Wright by the Sea could do better.

Room Tip: We stayed in 131 on the second floor which has better views than the first.

We have made several trips to Delray. We have stayed at the Marriott. I would choose to stay at Wright by the Sea. Although it is about 1.5 miles from downtown, the oceanfront is awesome. I enjoyed being away from the hustle and bustle. We rented the two bedroom suite on the second floor. The furniture is dated, but the hotel makes up for it in CLEANLINESS. The sheets and towels were soft and nice. THe pool was warm and clean. I felt comfortable and at home here. My husband and I will try to rent the oceanfront luxury suite when we come back for a long weekend again. the room looked exceptional and was WRight on the Beach

Room Tip: All are good. I liked the second floor

We went here with my family and it was a great place to stay! They have a heated swimming pool, a basketball court, a shuffleboard court, and croquet. We had a lot of fun! Wonderful view of the ocean!

I decided to head down to Florida for a quick vacation away from the snow and cold. Based on the reviews, Wright by the Sea was going to be the perfect spot. And I wasn't disappointed.

While the property is a little "dated", it was very clean, comfortable and accessible. I had a room on the 2nd floor facing the ocean which was perfect. The bed was comfortable, rooms were clean, parking easy, location perfect, etc. As noted previously, this isn't the "Four Seasons" but if you're looking for an easy get-away, this place is it. Kitchenette had everything I needed. Easy 15 minute walk to restaurants, supermarket, etc. And lovely, clean pool too. The staff were friendly and helpful All in all, a great stay in Delray. Perfect for couples.

Not the Ritz or the Four Seasons but I found it better. Great friendly staff. Clean. Great location on the beach in Delray close to all shopping and restaurants. Lounge chairs, umbrellas all over the sand. Everyone there was kind and friendly to me and Norman. Had a very spacious studio with kitchenette on ground floor. Would stay there again and again.

This is not a fancy place or a luxury hotel or condo. If that's what you want go elsewhere. My husband and I were here for 5 days and loved it. We had a 1 bedroom suite, with a pleasant sitting room and tiny but totally functional kitchen. It was a perfect home away from home for us. Sat on the front porch, used the (free!!) laundry facility, borrowed some books, spent a great deal of time on the beach in their lounge chairs and took a few dips in the super clean pool. The bathroom could use a bit of updating but it too was very clean and perfectly functional. There was a very good sized walk through closet area with lots of storage space. I would definitely stay here again.
