We celebrated my partner's 60th birthday here. And with the help of the staff, I was able to pull off the greatest birthday surprise! A condo with an amazing view on the 2nd floor, dog friendly, being that the surprises (which were friends coming in from TN) had a dog. The staff was able to give me information for a... More

We stayed in the oceanfront room.. We just fell in love with the view. The room had an amazing ocean view and fortunately the weather was good enough to view the sun rise from the balcony. The room was very clean and the service was excellent. The resort is nearby to major attractions and eateries. The complementary breakfast at Jolly... More

My husband, son and I recently stayed at the Sea Ranch. Awesome oceanfront view from the 5th floor, very nice staff, nice and clean room. The only compalint that I have about this property is that the pool was VERY chilly. Heater needs to be turned up. Nice pool area also, just way to COLD!

The wife and myself have stayed at this location twice now. The staff has been very polite and helpful both trips. The rooms have been clean and ready as promised. The pricing has been fair for the area.

We were looking for a first time OBX place that was dog friendly and close to everything. We lucked out with the Sea Ranch! Geographically it was smack in the middle of all the places we wanted to be! The condo was Oceanfront - AMAZING views and sunrises! The place was IMMACULATELY clean (very important to me!) and had EVERYTHING... More

Went to the Outer Banks during the Marathon Nov.9th, to support our daughter, who was running the 1/2 marathon. We had never stayed here before, but we will be returning for sure. Outstanding customer service, and very clean rooms, and our housekeeper Cindy was wonderful. The restaurant there is awesome and the food is very good.

My husband and I just stayed here November 21-23 on a FALL PROMO special. We had free breakfast both days included in our stay, which was delicious. We had a king size bed and a perfect ocean front room. We will definitely be returning in the future.

My young daughter and I stayed here for two nights mid-week in Nov. 2014. We did the bed and breakfast package for 2 queens in an oceanfront room that ended up being less than the AAA price for just the oceanfront room. We stayed in 216 and it was the cleanest hotel room I have ever been in. My daughter... More

We stayed for two nights in an ocean front room. The view was super, the room was clean and it was a great stay. I didn't have much interaction with the staff, but the folks we came in contact with were pleasant. We would stay here again for sure!
