We booked a quick family getaway in the two bedroom - two bathroom condos. The ocean view and enclosed balcony were perfect. We brought items to cook in our fully equiped kitchen, and enjoyed being close to all of the best spots in the outer banks area. The bedrooms were comfy and the entire condo was very clean. The whole... More

We had a 2 bedroom condo that was an oceanfront room. The enclosed balcony was great because the weather was in the 50's at night. The kitchen was well equipped (bring your own salt, pepper and coffee). Bed was comfortable and the ocean view was faboulous. The on site restaurant had good food reasonably priced. Will stay here again if... More

Granted we booked online and might have not hit all the right buttons, but our room was nothing like all the wonderful reviews. No ocean views, not even an indoor community sitting area to look at the ocean. Our room was in the smaller street side building (no elevator). We stayed 3 nights midweek. They did not seem fully booked.... More

We stayed here this past weekend, and it was very nice. Not fancy, but clean and pleasant. The staff was so sweet! I would definitely recommend it to anyone lucky enough to go Kill Devil Hills. They have a nice pool (indoor, heated), so you can swim even when the weather isn't accommodating. They have a nice café and had... More

The ocean front room we had with floor to ceiling glass windows and a door had a spectacular view of the ocean and given the fact the beach is quite short in this area the ocean seems to almost come into your room. The front desk was very professional and friendly. We had breakfast included in our package and again... More

We stayed for a week at the Sea Ranch Resort in April, and we were quite pleased with our stay. The price was good; we wouldn't have found a house ON the beach for what we paid here, and we really wanted to stay ocean-front. For that reason, we decided to give it a shot, and that was a great...

Enjoyed staying here even though the weather was terrible. The desk clerks were very personable. We stayed in a two bedroom condo which had two balconies with views of the ocean. The condo was a little outdated but very clean and equipped with every thing we needed. Would definitely stay again! Hope the weather is better next time.

My husband and I read the reviews before booking 3 nights at the Sea Ranch Resort. The reviews seemed ok to us. We had a 2 bedroom/2 bath oceanfront on the second floor. I realize the resort is old but updates are necessary. The kitchen cabinets had some kind of wallpaper glued to the front of all the cabinets. There... More

Overall the Sea Ranch totally met our expectations as a quiet, relaxing weekend getaway. Beautiful view right on the ocean. Location was very convenient for traveling to restaurants, etc since it is on the beach road that runs parallel to the main highway. The renovations that we were told were done in 2012 have made it very attractive. They still... More
