One of the best ocean front hotels in the area. Clean rooms and friendly staff. Board games to borrow. Nice indoor pool. And the ocean at your door step. We stayed in a 2 br ocean front condo for the weekend in the off season. The amenities are great and the off season rate cannot be beat.

This was our first time visiting the Outerbanks with friends. We loved the Sea Ranch Resort. We had a king ocean front room and it was clean and comfortable, the staff helpful and nice, and the views were incredible from the 4th floor.Thank you Judi and Herb Brubaker for introducing us to this hotel. We will definitely be back!

We got this off a group on for a good deal and stayed in the main (older and non ocean view building). The hotel room was clean but could use some remodeling. The shower head was very low for tall folks. It has a faint "old beach hotel" scent but not terrible. Included breakfast at the bistro was good and...

My wife used to be regulars for years. In fact, we celebrated our wedding anniversary there. During our last visit, we noticed a sharp decline in service quality following the termination of their general manager. This was reported in detail to the hotel's owner/property manager which was ignored. The hotel refused to make any financial accommodation as one would expect...

We escaped to the beach for a few days in January. The off-season rates were wonderful and the weather, fortunately, cooperated. We were able to walk on the beach in shirtsleeves. We stayed in a king oceanfront room. It was very spacious and comfortable. There was a small sofa (I think it was a sleeper, but we never checked and...

The rooms were very nice and the staff was very attentive and eager to help my party enjoy our stay. We did not take advantage of the pool or exercise room, however the pool did appear to be very nice and well appointed. Unfortunately the restaurant was closed because we were there in the off season but we'll be sure...

We had an Okay experience. The suite was right on beach. The rooms need a lot of updates. The bed was every uncomfortable (you sunk right in the middle) and the 1 couch was so hard to sit on. They are pet friendly but they really have no where for your pet to use the restroom or enjoy their time...

Our first visit to Sea Ranch was the Kill Devil Cocktail and Culinary Weekend in January. Chef Sam partnered with Chef Mark Newsome, formerly with the Joshua Wilton House in Virginia where we live. The hors d'oeuvres at the reception and the meal the next night were spectacular to see and divine to eat. We also loved the enthusiastic tour...

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...
