This is right on the beach! We were celebrating a birthday and wedding anniversary. The staff was super kind and offered us a complimentary upgrade to a suite! The ocean view suite was perfect. The breakfast was delicious and the restaurant staff were extremely friendly and helpful in pointing out places for us to visit in the area. We will...

We were very pleased with our stay at the Sea Ranch Resort. The rooms are pretty big and it was nice having a mini frig and microwave in the room. It was very clean and the location was very convenient to the main road that leads to most of the attractions. Beach access was excellent. You just walk out a...

My wife and I enjoyed this place on a little mid week getaway. The room was spacious, clean, and comfortable. The ocean view was spectacular. The beach is literally 10 yards from the room and is easily accessible. The hotel bistro was a little pricey but the food was excellent. The pool was refreshing. The staff was friendly and helpful....

You are right on the beach, the balcony nearly overhangs the water at high tide. The views are amazing! We loved the 2 BR unit- most of it had been updated and the rooms were very large. Definitely had more than enough space for the 3 of us. It was quiet too and in a great location, could even walk...

We booked an ocean front room and were very pleased with the view and the proximity to the beach right outside our door (and over the dune). The resort has a pool, but it is surrounded by glass, so you don't have the benefit of the sun and air moving. Rooms were clean and well cared for, but a little...

Whenever we come down to the outer banks, this is my top pick on where to stay! Staff is always friendly, the rooms are always clean and the view is amazing! Came down on a last minute birthday trip and it was just so relaxing and enjoyable! Definitely a place to stay, and can't wait to be back.

The staff was so friendly. They recommended great food, even though we weren't eating at their restaurant. One even took a picture or my husband and me on the beach and asked if I wanted it. It was a beautiful place, right on the beach.

Old and outdated place! Bed is so old and out of shape, my husband fell off it at night several times. The springs are broken. The humidifier was running all night long as a standing unit in the room, never experienced this before in a hotel. Very bare minimum in terms of everything provided in the room. Asked the front...
