I cannot say enough good things about this hotel. The room was excellent, clean and an awesome view!!! We were not disturbed once by the maid or any other staff. Everyone at the front desk was extremely helpful and that goes for the rest of the staff also especially Belinda in sales. The only thing I was disappointed in was... More

We stayed at this hotel for a few nights in May 2015. Indeed, as many reviews indicated, room was musty. As we just needed a place to sleep at night, this place was ok. Interior is outdated, carpet in the bathroom by the sink, not very sanitary ( overall, I think beach hotels should have tile floors to avoid humidity... More

We don't ask much from a motel: a heated indoor swimming pool, dog-friendly accommodation, and reliable Wifi. The Sea Ranch Resort (which is as much a resort as I am a seahorse) promised all three of these markers, but came through with only one. The dog was really happy, but we were really angry when we saw the "closed for... More

This is the perfect place for a long weekend with the family. We did just that over the Memorial Day holiday. The pool was the favorite destination for the kids. The hotel is right on the beach so it makes it easy to do the beach play with the children. Very family friendly area and when the kids go to... More

Was on the 5th floor ocean side. Room had a balcony and the ocean view was fabulous. Left sliding door slightly open at night and the sound of the breaking waves was the best natural sleep aide one could ask for.

I rented a condo. Perfect for me: I wanted a place on the beach and a kitchen. I had a wonderful ocean view through the glassed-in balcony (with openable windows). As others have said, this hotel is right on the beach. An added plus was free use of the YMCA in Nags Head. I took advantage of a special offer... More

I stayed at the Sea Ranch for 3 months in the winter while working there temporarily. The suites were a bit dated, but clean, cozy and HUGE! Tons of living space. The kitchen is twice the size of my own at home. Cleaning ladies were friendly and kind. When I left, one of them gave me a gift of some... More

Despite renovations being done in this hotel it still has a long way to go. The condo style rooms have a great balcony and views of the ocean and that was a plus with the hotel. The kitchen area and dinning area was well fitted. The pool is inclosed, but wasn't heated and was pretty cold. Our room had a... More
