My daughter and I traveled to the Outer Banks for our summer vacation. I booked a room at the Sea Ranch Resort for 3 nights thru Groupon. Our plans changed so we were able to add 2 nights to our trip. I went onto Trip Advisor and booked an additional 2 nights at the Sea Ranch Resort. I called the...

My family had a wonderful time at the Sea Ranch Resort. The check-in was pleasant and quick. Our room was clean and spacious with a breathtaking view of the beach. The free snowballs and live music was a pleasant added bonus.

Everything about Sea Ranch Resort was beautifully done, from the attractive, well-appointed, incredibly comfortable, quiet and spotless rooms, to the wonderful indoor/beach view restaurant with evening entertainment, where we heartily recommend the lunch and dinner selections as well as the copious breakfast included with each night's stay. The beach access is very easy, elevators are readily available if needed, a...

We came across this quaint beachfront hotel 5 years ago, and we have stayed here for a couple of nights while in the OBX each year since. The ocean views are amazing. The sound of water right outside your door is priceless. The beach is just down the stairs, and there you are!!! We have had GREAT service and will...

We loved it!!! We had an ocean view room. Balcony was amazing. We stayed down the beach at a different hotel during Spring Break but this view was so much better. We were closer to the beach. The room was clean and had everything we needed. Microwave and fridge in the room. Indoor pool felt great. It was so easy...

We lucked up finding the Sea Ranch. The outside is a little deceiving. The inside is sooo nice. We got to stay in a 2 bedroom which was more like a condo. Extremely nice! Perfect for kids or anyone that likes to stay right on the beach. The pool is pretty good, the restaurant is awesome- food that specials change...

A bit worn, outdated and" loved", but clean and right on the beach. Close to restaurants, theatres, shopping and main thoroughfare. Would stay again, although would prefer being on the "beach" side. The two buildings are perpendicular and one of them has little or no view and appears to be older. The attached restaurant is convenient, although nearby are a...

We had a king oceanfront room. The room was clean, spacious and modern. The view was spectacular. One whole wall with the balcony door is glass. This is what gave you the magnificent view. My only downfall was the runny egg omelette at the bistro. Don't let that keep you away. It had to be the cook that day because...

A good stay directly on the beach. The room was modern and updated even though it is an older hotel. The hotel is so close to the ocean that you can open the window and hear the waves. Closer than more developed beached that have a boardwalk between. The rooms were clean and comfortable.
