There is an indoor pool. The rooms are very nice and clean. The staff was nice. Breakfast not included. Windows in the rooms open, so we could get some fresh air. Good coffee! The bathroom was clean and spacious.

Stayed: March 2018, travelled with family

This was a February trip. The value was outstanding. the room was clean and comfortable with a open door to the ocean. The staff is friendly and go out of their way to accommodate any need. Even the staff doing "winter work" maintenance were great to talk to and helpful. The in house restaurant "Seaside Bistro" is a great way to start the day.
This is our fourth year of winter getaway at Sea Ranch Resort and I will be booking next years soon.

Room Tip: All rooms are good.

Thank you so much for the excellent ratings, and review on TripAdvisor! I am so pleased that your Winter Getaway experience met and exceeded your expectations again. I also would like to thank you for recognizing our amazing staff. Most people will find that they all take great pride in serving our customers. We know that off-season travel offers guests more choices but we are different, as you can't always get that "Sea Ranch Southern Hospitality" that we pride ourselves in. As a small boutique hotel, we want make sure that all our guests have an exceptional experience, and will consider the Sea Ranch Resort their “home away from home.”

Until next time :)

We stayed AGAIN!!! Thanks to Harriett and Erica For such an Amazing Experience!! You two are true example of going above and beyond and really making our experience that much better!!! We hope to see you both again when we return in July!!! And want you to know that its because of you TWO that we will be staying again.. (There is also a maintenance of operations manager that helped us as well with our room.. She was very sweet and kind and helped make the stay great as well!) I am so sorry to have forgotten her name but when I call back I will get it and make sure to post you as well.. You were the one that helped Erica on Saturday Morning with our Balcony and getting us into our room!!

Stayed in the King room instead of the suite this time. The King room comes with a mini fridge w freezer and a microwave. Very, Very Comfortable room. Very Clean.. Looks updated. The room has a door to the balcony so you are able to just open the door and let the breeze come in as well as sit on the balcony which is very relaxing. It has a flat screen tv in the room as well. We had breakfast in the restaurant. which was great and the customer service was amazing!!!

Room Tip: 4th and 5th floor rooms ocean view are the best!!!

We took the kids for a last-minute weekend to Kill Devil Hills. We wanted the flexibility of a hotel but wanted to be right on the beach. Sea Ranch Resort had everything we needed--gorgeous ocean views, an indoor pool in case of bad weather, and a perfect location near the Wright Bros. memorial site. The room was comfortable, the property was well taken care of, and it's a small enough hotel that you feel you are staying some place unique and special.

Room Tip: The ocean view is always worth an up charge. The balcony is a perfect place to eat your breakfast and relax in the morning.

Wife and I wanted to run away from home for a few days just to have some down time. BEST place to go you ask? OBX!! Picked this resort as we have not stayed here before. Found all to be be very nice and comfortable. Room was very clean and the fifth floor balcony ocean view was superb. Staff was extremely pleasant and helpful. Would consider staying here again, but we do like to move around and explore the OBX and all the possibilities of places to stay on adventures. Of course, SOME restaurants were closed due to the time of year, not to worry. We found many places we have visited in the past that are also open for the local residents year round it appears.

Stayed: January 2018
