Completely lived up to the ads and reviews. Total gem of a place on the water and close to town. Beautiful beach, pool was great and a nice apartment to stay in with an ocean view. We had to leave a day early and Pat in the office helped us out and could not have been any nicer. We will...

This property is just as it was 50 years ago. So much better than the huge hotels, this intimate and exquisitely maintained property is a jewel on the ocean. The view from the rooms is wonderful, looking across the grass and pool deck, past the tiki hut, to the aquamarine hues of the Atlantic. The rooms have all the expected...

We needed a home base from which to explore Ft Lauderdale and West Palm Beach. This fit the bill! Clean well-equipped apartment, friendly staff, oceanfront (with chairs and cabanas), heated pool, table and chairs outside, quiet, and great beds!. I could see coming back and enjoying the outdoor grill, Tiki hut, shuffleboard court, and table tennis. Management may want to...

This is a lovely hotel with direct beach access (no road in between), a friendly staff and a lovely atmosphere. I did not give a 5 point rating as the hotel still allows their guests to smoke outside in front of their rooms. Due to the structure of the building with low outside ceilings you are severely affected by smoke...

We recently stayed for the first time at Wright by the Sea and it was wonderful. We stayed in their two bedroom suite. The rooms were clean, very comfortable furniture and beds, and had a great little kitchen. They even provided us with a crib which we were able to squeeze into the bedroom which had two twin beds. Our...

I live in Boynton Beach but not on the beach so whenever I need my beach fix this is where I go! Yes I guess the rooms could be updated somewhat but I prefer the more affordable rates to upgraded fancy pants rooms. The location cannot be beat and Patty in the office is the bomb! Everything you need is...

Gorgeous resort; immaculate grounds, steps to the beach. Rooms were simple, clean, and had everything you needed. The location can't be beat - literally on the beach, and just a quick ride to Atlantic Ave or Mizner Park. Publix, trader joes, and lots of restaurants right there. Nothing better than waking up and being just steps from the ocean. We...

Only stayed one night on our way from Palm Beach Gardens to Lauderdale by the Sea. The outside is just charming. Really great appeal as you drive up! The rooms could definitely use some updating, but the view and the grounds more than make up for it. The pool is large and warm. The beach is steps away. A quick...
