We stayed here in early June with our son. We normally stay in Corolla but picked this hotel because we got a special online. We weren't sure if we would like staying in Kill Devil Hills but this hotel changed that for us. We were so impressed with the staff and the cleanliness of the hotel. We love that all... More

This was the right hotel at the right price. Location, location, location. Right on the ocean. The locals told me that the restaurant/bar is one of the few directly on the Ocean. In the evening, they had live music out on the back deck of the restaurant, every night. We stayed Monday thru Thursday to avoid the weekend crowds. Highly... More

The room was spacious and very clean. The Sea Ranch Resort is well maintained and is a great location. It's as if the walls were sound proof, you couldn't hear a thing. Stayed there one night and it was a great experience. Recommend anyone to stay.

Based on the reviews, we were pleasantly surprised to have a very nice room overlooking the ocean. The WiFi was slow but worked. This was important to my husband as he has to check in with his online classes each night. They have a great restaurant that overlooks the ocean and the Happy Hour selections were very good. We spent... More

Obviously the fact that we have come back here speaks volumes. In past years we have rented two rooms but this time there weren't two rooms available at a discounted price so we rented the two-bedroom suite. I can't believe it worked so well. It was so nice having the kitchen and living room area, and my 17-year-old niece and... More

We are wrapping up our 5th or 6th stay here over the last couple of years. We live about 90 minutes away and use this as a sanity break from the busy-ness of life. We have found the views great, the food in the restaurant very good and reasonably priced. The staff is outgoing and friendly. The accomodations are good... More

I gave them to the cleaning lady that morning ,but she never returned. I went down that evening to get replacements. second of all the elevator makes some pretty bad noises. You just... More

As I explained in our phone conversation, applicable discounts are applied at the time of reservation. We do pride ourselves on great customer service and feel grateful to be ranked at the top of...

Oceanfront right on the beach. Clean, comfortable room with balcony. Quiet setting where ocean sounds were we heard. Staff was friendly. Food at Bistro was very good. Convenient to stores and great restaurants. We would recommend Sea Ranch for vacation of couple or family. Will stay there again.

This was a complete service resort consisting of condos, hotel rooms, on site restaurant and entertainment. We were treated well and all of the staff (which there was never a shortage of) were always friendly and helpful. If we got too hot on the beach, there was the enclosed pool to cool of in. There was a life guard station... More

I would recommend Sea Ranch for your family vacation. We had an oceanfront room with a balcony. Steps away from the ocean with great views. Room was clean and staff was professional and friendly. We will stay again !!
