MurRun calls Sandpeddler Inn their favorite place to stay in Wrightsville. They say, "We have been visiting our favorite beach here for years. The Sandpeddler is small, intimate, clean, and is in the perfect location. Just steps away from beaches, surf shops, coffee shops, restaurants, and more. Even when the Inn is fully booked, it is so quiet and peaceful. The staff is kind and very accommodating. Such a special place." A guest from Portsmouth, UK, stayed at the Inn with their significant other and commented on the comfy but informal accommodation very close to the beach, as well as the spacious rooms with "comfortable furniture and clean linens."

One of the special touches of the inn is the locally made soap which is available in each of the rooms.
