Location was perfect! Our room was immaculate and very beachy pretty...but not cheesy. The staff was helpful and extremely nice. We had a king size oceanfront room. Loved our stay! Would definitely choose this hotel again...and again. Breakfast at Jolly Rogers is worth the wait...and a visit to the Black Pelican for dinner if you love seafood is a MUST!

We were delighted to return to the Sea Ranch this Spring. We had an ocean front room, king size bed. Room was clean inviting. It was so nice to wake up and see the ocean, plus sit on the balcony and enjoy the surf. We are in the restaurant for breakfast. The food is delicious and the service is impecable..... More

Recently stayed with a friend celebrating her milestone birthday. Cindy at the front desk provided us excellent service and really went above and beyond to accommodate our needs. As always, really enjoyed our stay. Thank you Cindy for all you did for us. You really made our stay so much nicer. Wonderful to find this level of service in this... More

We went here for 4 days on a Groupon special May4-8. Although our view from our room was the parking lot, that was the only thing not perfect. The people at the desk were very helpful, very responsive, and very pleasant. The free breakfast at their restaurant was ample and delicious. The waitresses were openly friendly and willing to work... More

You are right on the beach with a covered pool if the weather does not cooperate. The Bistro has simple breakfast offerings which are served quickly. There is a 3-6 pm Happy Hour and then at 6pm the live music on the deck starts up! Very friendly staff, clean and neat obviously renovated. The rooms are on the small side... More

We found a lot of hair on blankets and sheets. A/C was working perfect. The kitchen was clean. There was no toom service! There were no comfortable bed! But the view was awesome. Generaly, it was ok for a beach family travel.

My wife and I stayed here on a whim after a camping trip in the area, wanting to get an extra night or two in at the beach before going back to the daily grind. It isn't a fancy place -- folks who are looking for the Ritz Carlton should look elsewhere -- but it's comfortable and the view cannot... More

My husband and I recently spent four nights at the Sea Ranch Resort on our first trip to the Outer Banks and we very much enjoyed our stay there. We especially enjoyed the view from our ocean front balcony room. The staff were both friendly and professional in their interactions with us. Surprisingly to us, the amenity we enjoyed the... More

We are a family of 5 and stayed here for 2 nights in an oceanfront room with 2 queen beds and a balcony on the 2nd floor. The view of the beach and ocean was AMAZING! It felt like we were right on the beach and the sound of the waves was wonderful! The room was extra spacious, with a... More

First time on Outer Banks and high expectations. Nearly ruined by the surly, unfriendly reception on arrival from front desk Jen. No different in the morning from John when I collected a gym pass. Hotels need to learn that first impressions for a first time visitor really count and this place fails.They are in the service industry and need to... More

I'm sorry you felt this way, and I assure you this is not the impression we leave on most of our guests. If you'd care to share additional details about when you stayed and what issues you encountered with the staff or your room, please feel free to contact me. I hope you'll consider giving us a second opportunity to... More
