Overall, the staff were gracious and helpful. But. Arriving exhausted at 11 pm, we were "met" by a front desk person who took "unwelcoming" to a whole new level. We hadn't noticed her broomstick parked outside. Her supervisor was concerned and apologetic the next morning, but alas, first impressions can't be undone. We had very nice breakfasts at the restaurant.... More

We were very pleased with our ocean front room. Room was very clean, very quiet and very close to the ocean. The sound of the waves breaking right outside the door is so relaxing. The bathroom is clean and newly redecorated.The only negative is the bathroom lighting is very dim. While I appreciate saving on energy, I really need enough... More

Since we only paid $79/night including breakfast for an "ocean view" (we could see a sliver of it) room, I'm giving this place an "average". Staff was nice, breakfast was just OK. The room smelled horrible - musty, moldy, mildew-y - and it even became attached to our personal pillows that we travel with. I may have to throw them... More

Stayed at a business conference, hotel was fine for the money. This place is really, really close to the Ocean, with waves crashing into the surf ten feet from the hotel. The Food was excellent, and they have a lot of specials at the bar.

Great views of the sea but this did not really make up for the poor condition of our condo. We had 221 and there was a large stain on the bedroom carpet, looked like someone had been well and truly sick all over the carpet. The toilet hanle was very loose, the room was very tired looking. The hotel booklet... More

We had an excellent time. People are friendly. We would go back in a heart beat. The restaurant has excellent food/ we eat there for each evening meal. The place is very well kept. Loved the specials with dinner as well as the live entertainment each night.

We booked this hotel through Orbitz and it looked OK online. It was a partial ocean view room. What we got was a view of a wall. If you opened the window, stuck your head out and looked down the alley between the buildings, you could see some surf, but this was in no way, shape or form OCEAN ANYTHING.... More

I had secured a vacation condo located a few units from the Sea Ranch for a week's vacation for an extended family. The original location was horribly filthy and not handicap accessible and we thought our vacation would be ruined. My husband and I walked down the beach to the Sea Ranch in hopes we could stay there instead -... More

My wife, our 2 year-old-daughter, and I stayed approximately a week. Check in is at four but we were able to check in early. Our room was older but clean and stayed clean all week. The indoor pool was nice in case of rain. The Staff at the Sea Ranch were extremely friendly and interacted with my daughter, which never... More

The resort is nice and the staff is friendly. We stayed in an oceanfront condo room. It was clean and very roomy. The glassed in balcony is a nice touch, but a few of the windows are dirty / foggy so you can't see out of that area. The balcony furniture and carpet needs replaced in our unit. The indoor... More
