We stayed in one of the condo rooms for a week. The location and views are top notch. The decor was dated, but the room was clean and well stocked. Some general maintenance does need to be done. The carpet did had some stains and there were gouges in the vinyl floor in the kitchen area. The enclosed balcony had... More

My husband and I spent the first 3 days of our honeymoon here and wish we'd booked the entire week! Couldn't have enjoyed it more - our room was perfect, the view couldn't have been better, and the beach was excellent. We've already recommended Sea Ranch to our friends!! Katie and Jen were so helpful and friendly, as were all... More

We stayed in this hotel for a night and although it was beach front, the service and rooms were not great. The room was dated and falling apart. Carpet was lose, bathtub was gross, we only used sheets because the blankets had stains in them. We asked for 2 more pillows because our pillows had stains on them, but they... More

Condo was clean and spacious enough for our family of six. The decor was dated and it would have been nice if the glass in the tabletop was actually attached to the table base-I was worried the kids would lean on it & it would come crashing off. It would also be nice if the door between the washer &... More

This hotel has a GREAT location (right on the beach and close to stores), a nice pool, and a delicious restaurant. However, none of this makes up for the unwanted roommates you will be sharing a room with. The hotel room that my family and I stayed in had ants galore. Even after having the room sprayed twice, there were... More

My mom and I stayed here the night of July 12th and it was great. We had an oceanfront room with a balcony. The room was clean, bathroom had nice tile detailing, and we had a mini fridge, microwave and sink. The lady at the front desk that checked us in was super nice and we had breakfast at the... More

We stayed in a condo at sea ranch resort. It was our first time to the outer banks. The location was perfect as well as the view. The ocean was right outside our window. Wish breakfast would have been included in the price but overall it is a great place to stay. Very friendly staff, will definitely go back!

My husband, son, and I spent a night here (July 13-14). We booked a king with a sofa bed, oceanfront room. We spent the day at the beach, checked in about 4:30pm. The woman (she had short blonde hair)who checked us in was WAY more interested in the world cup than she was in checking us in. She was short... More

I read all of the reviews before booking a trip to this "RESORT" with a Groupon deal. The reviews all spoke highly of this place. Let me tell you, it was GROSS! We had a 3 night stay and ended up leaving after the second night and forfeiting our money to go to a clean hotel. Our room was old,... More
