“Great stay! 2 bd condo style suites”
Reviewed 27 March 2014

Myself and 3 girlfriends went down for a quick weekend trip for my birthday. We stayed in the 2 bd 2bth condo style suites. It was wonderful. The views from the living room and the master bedroom were phenomenal. It felt like we were on a ship because you can't see the beach from the rooms. We slept with the sliders open and woke up each morning to the sun rising off the ocean. While the décor was outdated it was all in good shape and served it's purpose. The carpet had some stains but nothing gross and it is to be expected in rentals. The beds were really comfortable and we all slept great for our get away and were able to come home to our families rested. It is my understanding these are next to be renovated. The bistro was open and we had 2 free breakfasts each morning and the other 2 were offered the 15% discount. The breakfasts were good. The restaurant is small and fills up quickly, but we never had to wait more than a few minutes. I imagine in the summer it could be a longer wait. The wait staff were friendly and attentive. The front desk staff was also friendly.

My parents frequent Sea Ranch on their weekends in the Outer Banks, and pointed my girlfriend and I to a Groupon. We couldn't have asked for a better trip. The room was clean, the staff was more than hospitable, and the weather was fantastic. We loved that the Bistro was so close to the beach, had live music both of the nights we were there, and had an amazing bartender Garrett who was a very welcoming and all-around awesome guy. We can't wait for our next getaway to the Sea Ranch!!

My husband and I celebrated our 16 year anniversary at the Sea Ranch Resort. And we are both glad we did. Opening up the door to our room was like stepping into heaven. The full ocean view upon entering is spectacular. In the morning you can watch the sun come up over the ocean and see schools of dolphins swim by. The room was clean, comfortable bed, and the staff was great. Garrett the bartender was great as well as the relaxing live music played there on the weekends. A wonderful place to stay, sit back, relax, and enjoy. Can't wait to get back there and very sad to have to leave. :o( Recommend taking the drive to see all the lighthouses. Duck Donuts is yummy. Would skip Dirty Dicks Crab shack. Overpriced and not very good. There is a wonderful restaurant going towards Cape Hatteras Light house called Froggy Dog & Lounge in Avon. Loved it all.. Food, Staff, & Ambiance

Room Tip: Loved room #319 Close to the beach access door.

Uber friendly staff, front desk staff was local with great recommendations to things to see and places to eat with local catch and price variety. Room was very clean and well kept. View was to die for! Even got to attend a beach wedding for free from our balcony! Restaurant was delicious and staff there great even on a busy Sunday a.m. Easy to get to, ample parking. I would definitely stay there again!

Room Tip: Oceanfront rooms ALL have a great view

We took advantage of a Groupon & stayed here, having driven past it for years. What a nice surprise! Our room, second-floor, oceanfront, was spotless, spacious, comfortable and quiet. We slept with our balcony door open at night - and woke to gorgeous, peaceful sunrises. The staff, especially Cindy at Reception and our server at breakfast, Garrett, were incredibly friendly and helpful. Breakfast on the beach is such a great way to start a day! We'll definitely stay with the folks at Sea Ranch again.

My sister and I took a small vacation in the fall and not knowing what would be a good place to stay decided on Sea Ranch Resort. To our delight it was a good pick! The room was clean and roomy and we had a balcony room and the view was wonderful. We enjoyed our stay and would stay there again.

Room Tip: any room with a balcony I think would be nice but it is right on the beach so any room would be nice...

From the minute my sister and I opened the door to the room and seen the ocean right at the patio was just what we had wanted in this vacation. Sitting there every morning and watching the sun rise was amazing. We would snap pictures on our phones and send to friends and family back home who were working. The lady who cleaned the room was so outstanding and when we left a note asking for extra packs of coffee we enjoyed reading the note she left. She gave it a personal experience as though it were a friend taking care of us. Thanks, for everything and the enjoyable stay. Will recommend this resort to anyone who says they are thinking of taking a trip to the outer banks.
