We stay at least once a year in the condos- most of them newly renovated, washer and drier with a great balcony overlooking the beach. So peaceful and yet close to all the action! Also love the bistro on site.

Stay here on a whim and was pleasantly surprised. The staff was friendly and the hotel was clean. Didn't stay Ocean Front, so the rate was cheap, but the room was very clean. The tv was small for the large room and the springs in the mattress were sprung but was right on the beach. This is a typical beach...

We really enjoyed our stay at the Sea Ranch. The views were amazing. We rented a two bedroom condo and had plenty of room for a family of four. The rooms were dated but clean. The staff (especially at the beach side bistro) were kind and helpful. Indoor pool was nice for chilly mornings. All in all it was a...

The Sea Ranch was wonderful. The rooms were clean. The amenities were above average. The staff was very friendly. The location and views were spectacular. We experienced not only sunrise outside our deck every morning but a full moon out over the ocean as well.

Right on the beach that's the best and only part we liked. Have to take out your own trash when you check out never had that before at any hotel much less a place that calls itself a resort. Staff was not very consistent some super helpful. Some not helpful at all. Heated pool was nice for kids but pictures...

My family and I thoroughly enjoyed out stay in Early April. We stayed 3 nights in a 2 bedroom Condo Style room. Easy Beach access and Ocean front views from Balcony were great. It was still off season so the Restaurant was only open for Breakfast which is fine with us. When we have a full Kitchen we prefer to...

The view was amazing. The rooms are nice. The on site restaurant was not open but you could eat breakfast at the Jolly Roger for .99. The staff was really friendly. It would be nice if you didn't have to go outside to get to the enclosed pool. Other than that no complaints. I would definitely stay here again.

Friendly and helpful staff. Older facility, but well maintained and clean. The in-house restaurant "Bistro" served had great breakfast options and healthy portions. We did not test it for lunch or dinner. Easy access to beach which wasn't crowded the end of March.

We loved the NC outer banks, and we loved the sound of the waves crashing outside our beachfront room. The beach was popular for walking, and the local architecture was interesting (residences are primarily on the second floor with the ground floor open to deal with flooding). Our biggest complaint about the hotel is the smell of chemicals / air...

I had a class at the Outerbanks and chose the Sea Ranch Resort. I chose it because of the price, the beach, and the reviews. I did not get an ocean side room as I didn't think I would really need it. You can easily sit on the deck of the Bistro and enjoy the ocean. I am not sure...
