It looks like a motel that's been around awhile but it is a hotel and we had a great time. If you're looking for a relaxing beach vacation, Sea Ranch was excellent. We were there the week of July 18 - my wife, my college aged daughter and myself. The weather was very hot and humid, the beach is beautiful... More

Great location. Family loved being right on the beach. Don't leave on Sat. Or Sun. Traffic is terrible. Staff is nice. Rooms are clean. Love the live music on the deck in the evening. Get an oceanfront room. It is awesome. Get up early to see the sunrise. Usually can get a groupon for this place.

We just got home from a few days at the Sea Ranch Resort. We were located in the older section of the hotel, so no elevator. But its only 2 stories and not really a big deal. If you need any help with luggage, just ask, we were offered help and I heard offers extended to other guests as well.... More

My daughter and I traveled to the Outer Banks for our summer vacation. I booked a room at the Sea Ranch Resort for 3 nights thru Groupon. Our plans changed so we were able to add 2 nights to our trip. I went onto Trip Advisor and booked an additional 2 nights at the Sea Ranch Resort. I called the... More

My family had a wonderful time at the Sea Ranch Resort. The check-in was pleasant and quick. Our room was clean and spacious with a breathtaking view of the beach. The free snowballs and live music was a pleasant added bonus.

Everything about Sea Ranch Resort was beautifully done, from the attractive, well-appointed, incredibly comfortable, quiet and spotless rooms, to the wonderful indoor/beach view restaurant with evening entertainment, where we heartily recommend the lunch and dinner selections as well as the copious breakfast included with each night's stay. The beach access is very easy, elevators are readily available if needed, a... More

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
