This is a small family kind of environment resort, that caters to families with children or without. The staff is great, rooms comfy and my family will be returned for year 3. Tammy is wonderful and the owners definitely know how to make guests happy. The beach is right down the path with cabana's and chairs. A little slice of...

I love this place so much that I vacation here every six months. Everything you need or want is at Wright by the Sea. Tammy in the Office is wonderful to deal with. She is so helpful. Many nice restaurants in the area. Heated pool & grill on the grounds. Beautiful beach with cabanas & lounge chairs

Great location, right on the beach/ocean. Older motel style spot, with a 50's-60's retro vibe. The room we stayed in was large, with plenty of closet space and with it's own kitchen, combined dining/living room.

We stayed at Wright by the Sea in the middle of March, escaping 24 inches of snow at home to this delightful paradise. I am not a big fan of Florida, but Wright may just have made me a believer! The setting is beautiful, the staff is lovely and the facilities are spotless. It's an intimate setting that makes you...

I stayed at Wright By the Sea in February. Its a slice of heaven on the beach. It's a 2 floor motel with fantastic views of the water, well manicured grounds and typical Florida furnishings. The rooms are spotless. Some updating could be useful but I loved the location. There are ample lounge chairs, a large outdoor gas grill, a...

The beach, grounds and view are wonderful. Our one bedroom apartment was a huge disappointment. The kitchen was at least 30 years old, as was the bathroom. Old dated kitchen fixtures, dirty looking and no counter space. The dining table was so unappetizing with its mottled and stained dirty plastic top that we could not eat there. Stained chairs and...

We are sad we were not what you were expecting. We are a 1950 Old Florida Hotel on the Beach so we are 67 years old but we furnish the apartments with new appliances, furniture, dishes, tubs, etc. as needed. We do not have any plastic tables in our rooms. We will look into the issue of stains and correct...
