The rooms were clean amd spacious. The staff was wonderful. We had pool side room. We will definately stay again with the sea ranch. Awesome pool that gradually goes from 3 ft -8ft very clean. Rooms have great working ac and small frigs. If you go to the outer banks make reservations at the sea ranch. A great stay for a great price.

We stayed in the Condo style room at it had everything we needed to make our own meals. We were even able to do our laundry. The place was super clean and the layout was nice and accommodated 5 of us. Jen at the front desk was super nice and informative. Easy walk out right to the beach. I plan on going here again. Compared to other places in the area it was well worth. Pick up some local seafood, a bottle of wine and enjoy a meal on your deck overlooking the ocean! The 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms is awesome for families.

Room Tip: Get the condo style room and make your own meals with local seafood to save money! the kitchen is w...

Of course we did not reserve rooms in advance...so when getting rooms on the fly, you sometimes have to take what you can get! Overall, not too bad of a place, but for the cost, I would have expected alot nicer accommodations! Outdated furnishings, non-smoking hotel but our room had definitely been smoked in! Ants had a highway through the hotel (so any food in the room had to go with you when you leave the room). Katie at the front desk was great, very personable, and very polite.

This was a great stay, Cindy at the front desk answered all my questions about the area, and garret at the bar made some awesome drinks and great conversation. I've never had such personalized friendly service anywhere. This will be my go-to resort in the outer banks.

Very happy with this hotel overall. Stayed for a quick weekend getaway. The room was clean, The view was fantastic- so close to the beach. Free wi-fi was easy and fast. Very comfortable bed and linens. The on site Bistro's food was terrific, if a bit over priced. Two nights, ate dinner outside on deck with live music and ocean breeze.... Beautiful experience. Pancakes at breakfast were the best I've ever had. Staff very efficient, friendly and helpful.(especially Gwen) However, one young waiter's unprofessional behavior and incessant personal conversation about his "issues" was uncomfortable and annoying- ( 2nd night) He didn't seem to be trained properly at all....He acted as if we were there for him to "entertain" and feel sorry for him. Wasn't listening to our order, and brought wrong sides. Asked if we wanted change- when we left an extra large bill in cash with our $$- to be broken for a tip. If not, his tip would have been over 30 % Presumptuous- that's a no-no. His poor service was our only complaint the entire weekend. BUT...We would definitely return.

Room Tip: Oceanfront balcony

Our first stay at the Sea Ranch Resort was Summer '13 and it is our "go to" lodging while at the Outer Banks. The hotel sits right on the beach with no obstructed views. We had an ocean front room with balcony and enjoyed all that the white-sand beaches could offer. Rooms are very quiet, on-site Bistro restaurant is quite nice with both indoor and outdoor seating. Staff are very friendly. The hotel offers several on and off season specials during the year.

We got an ocean front room and spent time on the balcony. It was so peaceful and we enjoyed watching the ocean and all that goes on. In the mornings we would sit and watch the dolphins swim by. We saw them every morning and there were a lot. The room was clean and comfortable. The staff was friendly and answered all of our questions.
