4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

First time to stay here, the staff was very helpful and friendly. Suite was clean and furniture was up dated. I liked the fact that they have some pet friendly units and wish I had take my dog. The biggest fault I can find with the unit is that they need some upgrading. Windows, doors, cabinets and etc. The fact... More

We booked an ocean front room the day before our trip. The rate we received was great -they have an indoor pool which was nice when it's raining plus free ymca passes. Centrally located with a great restaurant on location. Front desk manager -Joe- was exceptionally nice and helpful. This was our first trip not getting a house and I... More

This was our first time ever to the OBX and chose this hotel based on other Trip Advisor reviews and the great rates! The room we had was amazing! Balcony looking out onto the ocean, plenty of space, and most importantly clean & fresh!! They have a great onsite restaurant called the Beachside Bistro (will write a review of that... More

This is our 3rd trip in 2 yrs to this wonderful setting. We are heading back this September for a week. If you have 3 or more people in your party I highly recommend the beautifully appointed condo suites. Great Value. What a view. You feel you own a beach front villa. The staff has always been gracious. And check... More

This was our third year staying at the Sea Ranch Resort and we just love it. It is ocean front as you can get without being in the ocean! We were especially surprised to see they had updated much of the furniture and carpeting in the rooms this year! The place is clean, the staff is so nice, the bistro... More

The location couldn't be beat for the price. It is a family friendly hotel (even with the name resort), and I highly recommend for a great getaway. Don't sleep in, you can do that when you are dead, be up and at em early to catch the sunrise over the ocean. Each day is a new opportunity to get it... More

The Hotel is nice, right on the beach which is awesome, the staff was helpful and friendly, and it's got a bistro attached which was really convenient for us alot of meals. Make sure to show your room card for the discount though. Although it was a good experience, the rooms were ehh... alittle dissapointing and dirty in the bathroom... More

Everyone who visits NC wants to go to OBX. I'm so happy that I found the Sea Ranch Resort for a two night getaway. Our room was clean and had ocean front access. The restaurant was a bonus, with breakfast included in our package. Bobby in the dining room was delightful!

We stayed here for a family vacation- 4 adults. This is our second time staying here, first time in the summer, and we love it because of the beach access! It is directly on the ocean!

This was the first time we had stayed at this hotel. They put us on the second floor oceanfront building. The location could not have been any better. Short walk to the beach, we could watch the sunrise each morning from the balcony, the ocean almost came up to our balcony at high tide. Everything in the room was clean,... More
