We came across this quaint beachfront hotel 5 years ago, and we have stayed here for a couple of nights while in the OBX each year since. The ocean views are amazing. The sound of water right outside your door is priceless. The beach is just down the stairs, and there you are!!! We have had GREAT service and will... More

We loved it!!! We had an ocean view room. Balcony was amazing. We stayed down the beach at a different hotel during Spring Break but this view was so much better. We were closer to the beach. The room was clean and had everything we needed. Microwave and fridge in the room. Indoor pool felt great. It was so easy... More

We lucked up finding the Sea Ranch. The outside is a little deceiving. The inside is sooo nice. We got to stay in a 2 bedroom which was more like a condo. Extremely nice! Perfect for kids or anyone that likes to stay right on the beach. The pool is pretty good, the restaurant is awesome- food that specials change... More

A bit worn, outdated and" loved", but clean and right on the beach. Close to restaurants, theatres, shopping and main thoroughfare. Would stay again, although would prefer being on the "beach" side. The two buildings are perpendicular and one of them has little or no view and appears to be older. The attached restaurant is convenient, although nearby are a... More

We had a king oceanfront room. The room was clean, spacious and modern. The view was spectacular. One whole wall with the balcony door is glass. This is what gave you the magnificent view. My only downfall was the runny egg omelette at the bistro. Don't let that keep you away. It had to be the cook that day because... More

A good stay directly on the beach. The room was modern and updated even though it is an older hotel. The hotel is so close to the ocean that you can open the window and hear the waves. Closer than more developed beached that have a boardwalk between. The rooms were clean and comfortable.

I can't say enough about this hotel! The people who work there are so accommodating and will do anything to make your stay the best. The rooms are clean and the ocean view is amazing! Literally steps from the best beach spot. Having the Beachside Bistro on the property is so convenient. Great food and staff and nightly music on... More

Ok. Here is my lengthy review. I want to be thorough and point out the positives and negatives of our stay at Sea Ranch. We stayed in the ocean front condo on 5th floor. We arrived about an hour before the 4pm check in. The staff at the front desk was very polite and welcoming and allowed us to check... More

The first time we stayed here about 5 years ago, we just stumbled upon it and really liked it. This time we reserved our spot for 4th of July vacation and they updated the place. A great room with private balcony right on the beach; a new wet bar, fridge, microwave. Such nice and helpful staff and cool bar cafe.... More

My husband, 4 year old daughter and I stayed here 3 nights/4 days in July 2016. The room and amenities were decently average, but what we loved was the location- could not have been closer to the ocean, and we could hear the surf from our room- all night long. View was amazing, the service was excellent and all staff... More
