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!

What a special weekend to share with your mother and we are so pleased you spent wit with us at Summer Sands.

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. It seems like they have updated some of the furnishings since our last stay. The layout works well for us because our five year old goes...

This was not only our first visit to the Summer Sands, but our first trip anywhere with our 2 dogs. We were a bit anxious, but we were greeted warmly by Earl who answered all of our questions and even sold us extra coffee (my husband drinks it non-stop)! The suite was clean and quiet. We overlooked the pool area....

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. My only complaint would be that the couch/ottoman in my room was very stained/dirty (looked like it was from people eating on it). But I would absolutely return again and recommend...

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. We do strive to keep our prices at an affordable level and still give good value and offer updated furnishings and amenities. Thank you for...

We had never taken our small dog with us traveling. I needed a pet friendly place. I was sure it was going to be a place I normally would not stay at. To my surprise the place is better than most I have seen lately. It appears they have refurbished the whole place and it is like new. We stayed...

Picked this hotel for a last minute spring break trip with friends. We loved how spacious it was and having a kitchenette with dishwasher and full size fridge. Although it was evident the hotel was old, the recent renovations made our room feel clean and comfortable. We stayed on the second floor but wish we had requested harbor view-- the...

Mary Catherine; Thank you for the kind words about your stay here at Summer Sands. We do try to keep our rooms fresh and updated.

Was looking for a place to say for a couple of nights at Wrightsville Beach. Found this place on Trip Advisor and thought we'd give it a shot.
