This was our first visit to the Sea Ranch, and we would definitely stay here again. We had an oceanfront efficiency room on the second floor with a great view of the ocean. The room was very quiet, and had all of the amenities that we needed. The beds were comfortable and the AC was efficient and quiet. The location... More

Let me start out with saying that this is a romantic older style motor court motel. It has all modern amenities. The pool and hot tub are huge. The staff are some of the nicest folks you could have looking out for you. The eff. rooms are huge , I mean best guess 25 feet x 15 feet. The kitchens... More

I had an oceanfront efficiency, located on the second floor. So I can only comment on this type of room. Ok.. Had a pretty decent view of the ocean. When staying at this motel, you are just feet from the beach! It can't be beat. My room was awesome.. Had plenty of chairs, a wardrobe to hang some clothes, a... More

We just spent a great weekend at Sea Ranch. The staff are so nice and friendly and will provide anything you need. It is not a modern day hotel, but has everything you need in a homely atmosphere. Loved our time there and can't wait to go back.

If you want a basic place to stay that is well maintained, has a friendly and helpful staff, and a convenient location, this is the place to stay. The housekeeping staff does a great job tending to the rooms. It has a family atmosphere. There is a 2 ft section in one of the pools (if you have small kids).... More

This is our 2nd time staying here. I love this motel! It has 2 very nice pools and access to the beach. It's quiet, pleasant, and very comfortable! Depending on your needs you can even get a room with a kitchenette. Great cleaning services also!!

They made our check in very easy since we were arriving after the office closed. The Room was very cramped but we made due, since the atmosphere was very friendly. There was plenty of room to sit outside our room overlooking the pool. The pools were out of this world, our boys could not make up there mind which one... More

Very nice only downfall shower was really small and only 1 grill. It was very clean very nice pools. If shower was a little bigger it would be a 5! Nice oceanfront or pool view either one is excellent nice location and very peaceful.

Stayed with the folks at the Sea Ranch again this past weekend & very pleased as we have been over the past 30 years. This place is a tradition for my family and it is run by people you can trust. We have visited many times over the years but this year is the latest in the season that we... More

We stayed at the Sea Ranch in early August 2014. We had an oceanfront room with 2 full beds in the 2-story building.The staff is friendly, the beds are firm, and our room was clean, with older but maintained furniture. Although the TV was only an older tube set, full satellite service was provided, with a lot more channels than... More
