I would given 5 stars except for a few mishaps. The hotel is very welcoming and being just steps from the beach is a plus. We attended a wedding there over the weekend and it was very nice. Mishaps: our air conditioning in our room went out around 12am on of course the hottest night. We couldn't get another room... More

First, I'd like to thank you for taking the time to leave your honest feedback. We also agree that customer service shouldn't ever be compromised and I am sorry to hear that we didn't deliver the experience that is to our standards. As I am sure you can see from other tripadvisor reviews, this is not a typical guest experience... More

Now I was on vacation with my daughter's family, so I am not sure how much they paid to stay in the two bedroom suite, but I can tell you that we literally walked out the door and were in the sand. The sunrise was unbelievable and the beach is not very crowded in the morning. We stayed in one... More

This was our first time staying in the OBX and we couldn't have picked a better place to spend the weekend. From the moment we checked in, it was a great experience.

The sea ranch has newly renovated rooms. The room service was good and they always came by to supply clean linen. The room was clean upon arrival and we even had a small fridge, sink and microwave for our food. We really enjoyed our stay at the Sea Ranch Resort! We would definitely visit again.

For the cost of the condo and the partial stay option this place can not be beat! The furnishing were contemporary. The floors and bathrooms were clean. Beds are very comfortable. Hotel is dated, but reflected in the price. Just being right on the beach is awesome. We opened the screened windows on the glass sunroom and sliding glass door... More

My family visited OBX for the first time ever this year and had a great time. The staff was very polite, rooms were the cleanest we have ever stayed in for a beach resort. You can't beat the breakfast at the Bistro. We will be coming back next year.
