This was our 5th visit at the Sea Ranch. We always enjoy our time here. All the staff is friendly and very helpful. We ask for a roll away bed and it was delivered immediately. The pool was warm and fun. Our room was clean. The only downside is the beds which are hard and uncomfortable. We look forward to...

We returned to the resort for a two night stay. The beachfront room was clean and quite. The hotel has direct access to the beach. Off season was enjoyable without the crowds, and the weather was great.

We spent two nights in the oceanfront condo and we were so happy! It was bigger than we expected and suited our family very well. If you have a large family it is really a great deal. Parents in the king sized bed, two boys in the twin beds, one on the pull out couch, and one in a crib!...

Enjoyed a nice calm and relaxing off season vacation between Christmas and New Year. Stayed in Oceanside room on 4th floor. Stayed 2 nights and had no major issues. Slept the first night with the balcony door open to hear the sound of the ocean. Would stay again in off season. Summer might be too crowded? Bistro breakfast was very...

This hotel is average and they charge 40$ per night as a pet fee but the room we got was very stinky and dirty. The bathroom was dirty too. I have stayed in much nicer and cleaner pet friendly hotels.

My family and I were staying on the OBX for 3 weeks to celebrate my 50th bday in December. We did have an oceanfront home in South Nags Head rented for our stay. Fortunately, we were able to leave a few days earlier than planned, but could not get into our rental yet. So, I started searching for a place...

This was our second stay at the Sea Ranch and will will be back! The hotel is right on the beach. All rooms have a beach view and a balcony. If you get up early enough you can see the spectacular sunrise! On our last day we saw dolphins swimming south. There is a cafe in the hotel that was...

Good accommodation with all you need in an hotel - hair dryer, fridge, microwave, coffee maker etc. Great room with sea view and balcony. Restaurant on site, but it was noisy and crowded with more of a bar and beer feel, and there was live music, which wasn't terribly good, so ate elsewhere. However, friendly staff :-) If you can...

What a treat! Spotlessly clean, tastefully decorated and pet friendly all perched right over the Atlantic ocean and a wonderful heated indoor pool to boot! This place is excellence defined. We would never stay anywhere else on OBX. Perfection.

We hadnt booked anywhere for our touring holiday, and as we planned to stay during a weekend we were advised to find somewhere in advance. We found this hotel in a internet search whilst en route to the Outer Banks and it was the cheapest we could find that wasn't fully booked. On our arrival to the outer banks we...
