My boyfriend and I decided to treat each other to a trip to the OBX for Christmas. We stayed Dec 26-28 and had an oceanview room. It was an incredible trip! The room had everything we needed with a huge king size bed, TV, sitting area and friendly staff. The comp breakfast at Jolly Rogers did not disappoint at all....huge... More

I've stayed on a lot of oceanfront property but the proximity to the actual ocean is competitive with any you could possibly find. The Jolly Roger is a good restaurant for the resort to offer as a breakfast accommodation; great portions and maybe the best waffle you will ever have. The staff was genuine, which I personally prefer to someone... More

I just left yesterday. I certainly did not want to leave. This was my first time traveling out of my home state but still I'm not understanding the bad reviews. The king bed in room 1 was very comfortable. Room 2 which had 2 twin beds was just right for my kids & although it didnt have a tv, they... More

We chose to come to the Outer Banks on a whim during the off-season because of a deal too good to pass up, offered by the Sea Ranch Resort. We chose an ocean-front room, which was definitely the right choice. The room has a mini fridge, a kurig, microwave, and a small sink - a perfect mini kitchen for vacation.... More

We bought a groupon that included daily bkfst which for several days was served in the hotel dinner and several days served from the Pirate restaurant across the street. OUr room did not face the ocean but was located in a building perpendicular to the ocean rooms. All rooms have a small balcony but ours just faced the parking lot.... More

We stayed in Room 223. The unit is large and spacious, allowing us to truly "sit back and relax". The unit has two bedrooms with an attached bathroom. The unit has a full kitchen and dining room, washer and dryer. We enjoyed the enclosed balcony overlooking the ocean. The decor and furnishings were out dated, however the room was so... More

I read other reviews before booking the Sea Ranch Resort through Groupon. We went during Thanksgiving week and even on the sunny days, the wind was gusting and it was quite cold. Our oceanfront room had a wall of windows and even at low tide it seemed as if the ocean was rolling right up to our balcony, so we... More
