My husband, daughter (12yrs old) and I stayed from Monday through Friday. We had such a phenomenal time! The ocean view room was nothing short of spectacular! The room was beach themed, clean and the air conditioning was always cranking! The staff were exceptional! Free snow cones served 3-4pm daily, $.25 (cent) large, steamed shrimp, $.50 (cent) buffalo wings, $1.00... More

The Name "Resort" is a bit misleading. The hotel is basic, except for an indoor pool and workout room. However, if you are there for the beachfront location and a big comfortable room, you will not be disappointed. We were 100 yards from the ocean. We slept with the patio door open to hear the ocean waves put us to... More

Recently my daughter and I spent a week at the Sea Ranch Resort. The room was spacious and clean as was the entire hotel. The staff was ultra professional but super friendly,relaxed. Perfect beach vibe. The restaurant had great staff and the food was delicious. I would highly recommend this hotel.

Great location! We went for 4 days with another family with children (10 people total). The oceanfront rooms were clean and updated with an incredible ocean view! There is just sand between you and the ocean! One of their BEST features! There is a nice size refrigerator to store a decent amount drinks and snacks, definitely a plus! To our... More

We stayed here three nights. To say it is right on the beach is truth!!! Any closer and you would get wet!!! We have stayed in several beach condos over the years and this one was pretty typical. Not the best but certainly not the worst! The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. We would stay here again!

I spent four days enjoying the sun, the surf and especially the ocean front balcony. My room and all the in-room amenities and pool were exactly as described. I also noticed outstanding sound proofing. Excellent value.

The rooms were clean and updated with new patio doors and our ocean-facing room had a balcony for two chairs and drying towels and of course, that incredible ocean view! Standard bathrooms, restaurant now offers reasonable breakfast and lunches, pricier dinners. Always something going on for kids are different times, plus if it rains there is a covered pool. Right...

This is our second year staying in OBX. We decided to try this hotel because of the reviews and location. The location is beautiful and we did like this place better than the one we stayed at last year. It is clean, but dated. The beds were ok, TV good, and it has enough room. The efficiency area was ok;... More
