“Beautiful Rooms!”
Reviewed September 19, 2012

I was very impressed with every aspect of the Sea Ranch. All of the staff were very friendly and helpful. Our room was lovely; newly remodeled, very clean and well decorated. The beds are SO comfortable. I would love to know what brand they are, as I may have to purchase one myself! The restaurant is delicious and affordable, with a great view of the ocean. This resort is wonderful for couples and families.. there are a number of activities taking place throughout the week. Overall, everything was wonderful. I would recommend this resort to anyone looking to stay in the area.

Room Tip: The oceanfront rooms are wonderful!

You definitely want to stay here!! Gorgeous rooms, super clean, and the staff is amazing. These fine folks bent over backward (and then some) to make our stay absolutely fantastic. They literally treat you like royalty! We will never stay anywhere else but here! I have to say these awesome staff members redefine the term 'hospitality'. They are definitely doing it right!! Can't say enough good things about our experience. Thank you guys soooo much!!

The Sea Ranch Resort has a great location and lovely, clean rooms. It is literally on the beach... staying on the second floor was like having a private beach footsteps away from our bed. The resort offers a lot of discounts on meals, free activities, and the friendly front desk staff (Lana) was full of valuable information. The beachside bistro was also very good and had very friendly staff. I highly recommend the Sea Ranch Resort and will definitely stay there again when we travel to OBX next time.

We reviewed TA on our way to OBX and decided to stay at Sea Ranch. The first night we were in the older part of the hotel (not oceanfront). The folks at the front desk, especially Karla and Shirley were awesome and very accommodating. The room was clean and neat and included a microwave and mini-fridge. It was obvious the room was recently painted and the bathroom was remodeled. The next two nights we upgraded to the oceanfront room, which is TOTALLY worth the extra money. The view is OUTSTANDING and the room is beautifully decorated and very comfortable. The balcony is great and it was fantastic to sit outside and listen to the ocean and watch the pelicans fly by.

Room Tip: We asked for the 5th floor on the oceanfront side-- it was awesome!

We planned a day trip to OBX but ended up staying 3 days thanks to the great accomodations provided to us by the Sea Ranch. We had a clean, comfortable, room that had a beautiful view of the ocean. The rate was unbelievably low! The staff was friendly and Shirley at the front desk was exceptionally courteous and professional. We will definately be back next year.
