We were traveling down the coast and spent one night here but could have stayed longer. Cindy at the front desk was very welcoming, room was clean and well stocked with shampoos etc . The beach was beautiful and sitting on the deck at happy hour was relaxing. Great place for a beach vacation.

The room was clean, the beds were ok, and the bathroom was small. HOWEVER, as soon as you walk out the back door and down the ramp, you are on the beach, which is worth every penny! The location is great too because there are a ton of cheap local restaurants (all 4 or 5 stars in my opinion) and... More

We stayed at the SRR for 4 days...Excellent customer service and a beautiful oceanfront view!....The rooms are a little outdated, but it definitely does the work. The Bistro serves tasty/homemade food and the waitstaff was very friendly. I wanted to workout while we were staying at the resort , so on top of using their fitness center, I was given... More

My husband and I stayed at the Sea Ranch for a long weekend. We had an oceanfront room and really enjoyed our view/the sound of the ocean. I suggest paying a little more for the oceanfront rooms, the view is worth it! We ate breakfast and lunch at the Beachside Bistro, which had good food and was very affordable. I... More

The 2 bedroom, 2 bath oceanfront condo was perfect for us. The view was incredible! Great location, clean unit, nice pool ( should be heated, though- the glass enclosure makes the water crazy cold-even in the summer! ) Will be staying here again.

I booked this hotel through a GroupOn. We did not have an oceanfront room. Our room smelled like mold and the carpets were filthy with old stains. All the carpets in that hotel need to be removed. The mold smell was most pervasive in the hallway next to the restaurant leading outside. The staff did a good job of cleaning... More

Stay somewhere else!!! The MUSTY ODOR and dampness will hit you as soon as you open your door, if you are an unfortunate victim of the main building. As an asthmatic, it was not easy to breathe while staying in this room. I can only imagine the billions of mold spores under the carpet in the bathroom area. Yes, the... More

This hotel is right on the beach. the room was large and clean, in fact the entire hotel was very well maintained. The room had a TV, coffee pot, refrigerator, microwave, hair dryer and iron. The staff were all friendly and helpful. The restaurant on the premises was very reasonable priced and the food was good. We especially enjoyed having... More

Right in the Middle of the Outer Banks. Nice and clean and right on the beach. Attached restaurant with decent items on menu. Not expensive either. The Red Drum was a nice place to get some lunch. We also ate at Miller's on the Waterfront, awesome place. Nice and relaxing stay and overall great for families.

I am always a little leery when I reserve at a non-chain hotel because they have no corporate brand to protect. But the Outer Banks is mostly independent places, and Sea Ranch got good reviews. So we gave it a shot. Glad we did. Check in was easy and the desk clerk was friendly and helpful. Our oceanfront second floor... More
