My wife and I really enjoyed our 4 day stay. The staff was very professional and the rooms were clean. The quality of the food at the restaurant on site was very good. Nancy at the front desk was extremley helpful. We can't wait to go back next year.

This is our 3rd 4th of July weekend at the Sea Ranch Resort. The resort is great. Has everything you could possibly need. The restaurant is great, and you can charge meals to your room which makes it super convenient if you are hanging out at the Beach and do not want to carry cash or cards. You can also...

I've been bringing my family here for four years now and we couldn't be happier. The location of the building and the view that we get from our condo cannot be beat. Many places look close to the water but I haven't seen one closer than this one. That's a big thing for us as we have little kids who...

The hotel wasn't bad once you got inside the room. The view was amazing the staff was friendly but the outer part of the resort needed updating. Other then that everything else was great I would definitely come back again even just for the view

When my usual hotel cancelled my reservation and sent my mama and me to the Sea Ranch Resort, instead, we didn't know what the rooms would be like. Imagine our surprise and delight when we found out we had an oceanfront suite with two bedrooms and two bathrooms! We thought we were in Heaven! We said thank-you prayers right away!...

Always a great stay with a great view! Love the balcony right on the beach! Staff is always friendly & helpful. We love coming here!!! My wife has some hip/back issues & while most hotel beds (usually we are at HGI when we travel) cause her some issues, We havent really had any issues here. Great place to stay!

My son and I came to the Outer Banks, my favorite place in the whole world to spend some quality together. We could only stay for one night but as always it was WONDERFUL!.

First and foremost, you need to know there isn't an elevator in the main building, however it is only two floors (approx. 8-10 steps total) to have to drag your luggage, etc up. I do think the other building does have an elevator. The main building we stayed in seems to have been the original property with dated carpet and...

Only spent one night at the hotel, but we had a beautiful room looking out over the ocean. Next trip to the Outer Banks I will definitely stay at this resort. We had a two bedroom condo. It had everything in it that you would need to stay with your family.
