Stayed here for a weekend getaway with my Girlfriend for second time and must say that it was excellent! Safe area, easy parking, great location/across the street from the Atlantic Ocean. Favorite parts of the room is that there is a functional kitchen with a full size fridge, room was clean, super friendly service and central air! Thank you Summer...

This place was a true gem. You get a big size room at an affordable price. Complete with a mini kitchen and extra bed in the living area. The balconies are excellent as well. Especially if you get a harbor view room. Staff is very friendly. There is someone at the front desk available till 12am or 2am (Saturdays). The...

Our daughter was running the Marathon in town & she chose it for ability to walk to the start. We found nicely appointed suites, parking that was a block from the beach and walking distance to anything else we needed.

The staff at the Summer Sands was wonderful. It has close beach access and beautiful views of the intracoastal. It is not a new, upscale hotel, but a warm and friendly family hotel. Close to great restaurants and outdoor activities

Debbie; Thank you so much for the kind words about our staff. We do strive to make each guest feel welcome. Summer Sands is walking distance to so many activities and businesses we do feel we are the best of both worlds.

We recently visited Wrightsville Beach for the first time while planning a tour of UNC Wilmington. We stayed at the Summer Sands Suites and it was a great place. The room fit our needs perfectly.

This is hands down the best location to stay in Wrightsville beach! The prices cannot be beat and you will never need your car once you arrive. The condos are perfect since you can bring your own snacks, take home leftovers, cook, drink, etc. The bed are very comfortable and the two tvs are a great convenience. Having a balcony...
