Can't believe this place still exsists. For the money, even not for the money, this is where we stay in the Boca, Del Ray area. Private beach and heated pool.E asy to get to. Excellant private location.

Room Tip: If you want to splurge then the end suites overlooking the sea grapes, the beach and ocean. It doesn...

I truly love this place for so many reasons! Wright by the Sea is a wonderful, two story old Florida style establishment with beautiful grounds, suites with kitchens, heated pool, great beach and cabanas and most importantly, the friendliest, most lovely staff you would ever hope to meet. I've stayed there 3 times, as well as other family members and friends. I always feel at home when I go.

Room Tip: I've always stayed in the corner one bedroom suite on the 2nd level... Big living room, bedroom...

This was our 3rd stay at Wright by the Sea. The accomodations are fabulous in the old Florida style. Great innkeepers and staff, beautiful amenities, perfect views from every room we've enjoyed! The upgraded linens were a huge bonus with the last trip! The rooms have everything you need! We hope to be able to enjoy WBTS for years!!

Room Tip: Each room has an area to sit outside the door that has a fabulous view!

I knew that at the least I would have an ocean view, but was surprised by how great this place is. Clean, friendly, reasonably priced. It's like hitting the jackpot. My only regret in sharing this posting is that I might not get a reservation next time. You won't be disappointed. Heated pool, free clamshells on the beach for shade, garden like environment. It has it all !

This is a picture postcard coming to life...steps to the beach and ocean, blues, yellows, greens and crisp whites in the rooms and outside. You start feeling relaxed the minute you walk in. Only two floors, no elevators to wait for. The rooms are spacious and immaculately clean..piles of fluffy towels, beautiful bedding, every amenitiy in the kitchen including a dishwasher. You can park you own car at no charge and you can hop the free shuttle to Atlantic Ave filled with restaurants and one of a kind shops. OR just lounge by the heated pool, walk the beach, read inside a cozy cabana..the staff accomodates room arrangements, gives great suggestions for things to do and are easily accessible.
I can't wait to go back!

My "girlfriends" and I wanted someplace not too far from home, but far enough to feel like we were on a mini vacation. And this was it! The location was perfect..."wright" on the beach...close to shopping...near great food...The manager and staff were sooo helpful, very friendly, went out of their way to accommodate us! The rooms are fresh, cheerful and kept extremely clean...Looking forward to another "girls" week at Wright by the Sea. . Kitchen well stocked with glasses, dishes, wine openers...everything we needed!!

Having just celebrated our 50th high school reunion, four of us "girls" decided to "run away" and just have fun. We chose Wright by the Sea based upon previous TripAdvisor reviews and because it's on the ocean, reasonably priced, and the accommodations include kitchenettes which allowed us to make a light breakfast in the morning and enjoy wine and cheese in the evening. But surprisingly, our experience was far more than that. Tammy in the office bent over backwards to give us the best accommodations with adjacent rooms, making it easy for the four of us to stay connected. Our view over the heated swimming pool, the lush gardens, and the sparkling ocean would have cost hundreds of dollars more anywhere else. Our rooms were spotlessly clean, spacious, and extremely comfortable. Not only was there an abundance of towels, tissues and bath amenities, but the kitchen was fully equipped including a microwave and a dishwasher ... with dishwasher detergent, too. Stacks of fluffy beach towels were available in the office and there were plenty of chaise lounges by the pool and down at the beach. Another plus is the free shuttle that transported us the short distance to the shops and restaurants on Atlantic Avenue. We would be picked up within ten minutes of calling them, and the driver would provide his direct number so we could phone him when we were ready to return to WBTS. Our vote is unanimous: This was BEST pajama party we've ever had and we can't wait to do it again. Thank you, Wright by the Sea, for a wonderful, relaxing, and memorable stay. See you soon!!!

Room Tip: There isn't a bad room in the place, but the office staff is extremely helpful if you have speci...
