I recall half joking with the Resort General Manager during an earlier visit on the eve of her leaving for vacation - "...where does someone who runs a world class resort go for vacation...?) As it turns out, there were personal reasons for her trip, as Sea Ranch Resort is truly first class. My wife and I live close by... More

Second time staying here and enjoyed it again. Stayed in a second floor condo. The condo itself has seen its days, but they are getting ready to renovate them, can't wait! The girls at the front desks are great. This hotel has lots of amenities. The view from our condo was awesome! Can't wait to go back in the spring... More

Found a perfect getaway for the weekend - with a rare hotel up-close view of the ocean. Loved it! Easily could be a place to stay for extended period with two rooms and a full kitchen. Not your average sized hotel room. The porch doors were open the entire time and made for a very relaxing weekend. Everyone at the... More

Our family spent a weekend at the Sea Ranch Resort. When we opened the door, the view from the window made us feel like our room was over the water instead of oceanfront. Could not ask for a better view. We got beautiful pictures of the sunrises and thoroughly enjoyed sitting on the balcony. The condo was a very nice... More

Stayed in an oceanfront suite. Very nice, clean, and had everything we needed for the week. Staff was very friendly. The view from the balcony was spectacular and although I liked the enclosed area, the windows did have salty sea spray on them. After all it is the ocean! This was not our first stay here and will not be... More

My husband and I visited the Sea Ranch Resort for the first time in October 2014. We stayed in an Oceanfront Room on the second floor. The sunrises were absolutely beautiful...and at high tide it felt like we could literally jump off the balcony into the ocean. The balcony was such a treat - very relaxing to take a cup... More

Our first (but not last) stay at the Sea Ranch proved to be a very pleasant 4 day vacation to the Outer Banks of NC. We stayed in an updated Ocean Front room which was clean and inviting. Bathroom was roomy but I agree with another reviewer that the lighting is dim. We were on the 2nd floor and the... More

This was my second stay. I never gave my review from the first stay because I wanted to experience it when the weather was nice and write a more accurate review. The hotel has been renovated over the past three or four years and now its a very lovely resort on the water. When I say on the water at... More

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
