“Great week!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2014 via mobile

Wow what can I say Wright by the Sea delivers. What a great week. Very relaxing we were told that they were full but it never felt that way. Pool was great as well as the ocean views. Rooms were perfect size and the grill and tiki hut were great.
We will definitely be wright back.

This is our third time visiting, the location, the rooms, the grounds are just perfect. The staff is friendly and eager to help. Tammi in the office makes checking in and out easy and Robin keeps our room clean and stocked with towels and everything else we many need. Our newspaper was delivered each morning. We have already booked our vacation for next year. We stay in the ocean front suite on the second floor but we traveled with over 20 people and each room they stayed in was nice. I highly recommend this place and cannot wait to go back next year.

Room Tip: Each room whether up or down are good, my favorite is the upstairs ocean front with a wrap around ba...

We recently stayed at Wright by the Sea for our family reunion. It was perfect. The staff could not have been more accommodating or friendlier. My husband met us there after being on the road for a week and Robin even did his laundry since he was running low on a few essentials. The outside grill and tiki hut were perfect for our family dinners. The beach was beautiful and the rooms had everything we needed. We can't wait to come back next year.

Staff are extremely accommodating, the grounds are really nice and the pool, beach and tiki hut are all you need for a tropical small hotel vacation paradise. Not far from the Atlantic Avenue restaurants and shops when you want some action.

This isn't a huge resort type of place, just laid back, quiet and a great place to go barefoot. This place is in demand and reasonably priced, so book early if you're going for a weekend stay on the beach.

Also it's a super place for family reunions....just had 49 family members stay the weekend there...our second year at Wright by The Sea....and we'll be back again next year for sure!

Room Tip: We like the corner suite upstairs because it's very sunny and quiet (steps only to the 2nd floo...

Our son and daughter-in-law had their wedding at Wright by the Sea and it was a wonderful family experience. The beach was just a short walk from our room , the morning sunrises were gorgeous and the hotel had a very relaxing atmosphere. I agree with all the positive remarks given with regards to the rooms, the grounds, and the staff. I needed a sewing kit to make dress alterations and the office staff was able to locate one for me. A week after leaving the hotel my daughter discovered she had left her son's embroidered baby blanket at the hotel. I called the office and they were able to locate it and mailed it to us promptly. We plan on making future visits to the hotel.Thank you Wright by the Sea staff for making our visit a memorable one!

Below you will see a review of this place I wrote in 2012. Much of what we thought then is what we still think, only we wanted to correct a few issues. We are now giving this place five stars as opposed to four. Cleanliness is impeccable, both in the rooms and on the grounds and the staff could not be more friendly, cordial and willing to help with answers to any questions you might have.

Having said that, here's our previous review. Just throw out anything that sounded even minimally negative.

“This resort is All Wright!”
4 of 5 starsReviewed October 10, 2012
We got back from a six night stay at Wright by the Sea last night and I feel no need to look for another hotel the next time we visit South Florida. I wish someone had mentioned when I booked the room that there was a $10. a night discount for those who book 7 nights. Had I known I'd still be there.

The grounds are beautiful and very well maintained. There's a large, fresh water pool close to the rooms and it's a short walk to the beach from the pool with a shower between the two for those who need to get the sand and salt off their bodies before heading into the pool or back to the rooms. The beach couldn't be any cleaner or prettier, by the way, and there are numerous cabanas for those who prefer to sit on the beach and out of the sun.

The rooms were clean, plenty large enough and always cool. I saw no insects in our room but my wife tells me there were dead bugs in the light fixture. Also, there was an eight inch long, black hair plastered on the wall in the shower/bath the entire time we were there. Whoever grew that hair had to have been tall because I'm 6' and it was stuck to the wall at about 6.6'. I ignored it.

The front desk people, Jack included we're perfectly cordial, as were the grounds people. The lady from Kansas who's name I forgot was downright bubbly. We liked her. We have no complaint that anyone was unfriendly.

This place does have one unusual foible, that being that there is no room service on Sundays. When my wife called to mention that it was 4 PM and the room was unmade (meaning no fresh towels too) she said the reply was "No room service on Sunday. It's in all the literature." Hey! I didn't come to read the book in the room. Tell me this!

There's no restaurant at the hotel but there's a kitchenette in the room complete with fridge and coffee maker. There are plenty of restaurant, fast food and breakfast places within a couple of miles but you will need a car.

Minor negative stuff though. We were happy and we will definitely be back.

We stayed at the Wright by the Sea 26-28 May 14. We stayed in room 111. This was our second visit to the hotel and once again, it didn't disappoint us. Even though it was a relatively short stay, we decided to return because of how special this place is, when compared to your regular chain hotels. There is an absolute attention to detail in the rooms and the facility itself. All the personnel went out of their way to friendly, funny, and very welcoming. We truly felt at home, like at no other hotel we have been. The swimming pool area was very nice, as well as the other outdoor facilities. Having the canopies available for free us at the beach was a big plus for shade during the day. Our room was very clean and we really appreciated having a fully functional kitchen available for us. We liked having the two TVs in the room (family room and bedroom). We will definitely return, if our travels call us to be in the area, like many others have done (and continue to do) year after year.
