Recently stayed at this lovely hotel with my mom and teenage daughter. Had a wonderful time. Started off being greeted by a very friendly, helpful lady. Our room was 515, very clean, great view. Ate a restaurant, wonderful food-we ate breakfast and lunch here. Garrett our waiter was the best! Nice indoor pool, great parking. Rented chairs and umbrella. Would come back again. Great location.

I found this hotel due to the reviews and ratings on trip advisor. This hotel was wonderful. The people were very helpful and wonderful. We had used the sizzler package and the beach tote was full of awesome goodies. More than what I expected. We also got to enjoy the breakfast at the bistro included with the package. We didn't have any problems getting to the beach as well as the shopping. It was in a very nice area and was off the road. The pool was also clean and wonderful. They keep the windows open in the pool area so you still get the feel of being outside. The weather was good but it did rain but wasn't a big downfall to our stay. Ocean was VERY cold. We weren't able to get an ocean front room because they were full but our room was very clean and just right. All in all this hotel is fantastic and we plan to return!!

We stayed here for a week on our first trip to the Outer Banks. The rates were extremely reasonable and the rooms were clean and well-maintained. The ocean-front rooms are amazing, putting you so close to the water that you have to go out on the balcony to see the sand if you're on one of the higher floors. The beach here didn't seem to be overly crowded, and the kids loved playing in the indoor pool out front.

We had a bit of trouble with our A/C midweek, but Chris and Gregory from maintenance helped to get that sorted quickly, even though it was rather late at night when we had the problem. They were professional and courteous, and even asked us later in our stay how things were going. I can't compliment them enough.

The location was ideal for us, as we had activities planned in various places from Manteo to Corolla. The drive to either of those places wasn't bad at all, so I'd highly recommend this area to anyone who plans to bounce around to different locations during their stay.

Room Tip: Definitely get an ocean-front room/suite. The view is well worth it.

Thanks for taking time to review!

I wanted to first extend a special THANKS for your patience and understanding for mechanical issues we had with your A/C unit. Those issues are unforeseen and we do work hard to remedy them as quickly as possible! I will be certain to pass your kind words on to the staff too!

Looks like you all were able to take full advantage of all our amenities and found our location to be the perfect home base for all of the travelling between local area attractions! We definitely are lucky to have a great central location!

We hope that you will make the Sea Ranch Resort a part of a new Outer Banks tradition!

If found the hotel to be very clean and the staff very friendly. I was a little disappointed that the pool was not bigger but it was still nice. The restaurant was good, a little pricey but then all of the food was pricey down there. I would recommend this hotel as a place to stay. But the ocean was freezing. They said it depended on which way the wind was blowing as to whether the warm water from the south was coming up or down from the north. The best part about the stay was seeing the dolphins swim by every morning. Beds were very hard/firm. Did not really hear from the neighbors unless you were out on the balcony. We were on the 3rd floor.

Stayed in the sea ranch for three nights last week. The staff were v helpful and knowledgeable. Our room was clean and spacious and the beds comfortable. We had a balcony which sadly overlooked the car park but was fine. The bistro serves good food both breakfast and dinner with live music in the evenings. Terrific location right on the beach and great value. Was v sorry to leave.

Room Tip: Try for a sea view

Got the room for cheap cheap through expedia. Service was blah and room needed vacuumed but I am very pleased nonetheless.

Got a non-ocean view and my side on building by the road did not have an elevator.

Thanks for taking the time to review. I am in hopes that you brought these issues to the attention to the front desk regarding cleanliness so we could address is at that time. It is not acceptable to have a room checked into when it is not clean. Feel free to contact me if you'd like to discuss this. info@searanchresort.com

Thanks again for your review.
