My husband and I went down to the Outer Banks for vacation, the hotel was in a perfect location for us in the middle of the Outer Banks, many restaurants and shopping close by a few restaurants within walking distance, the hotel is right on the beach, it is a little older, however the room was clean, the housekeepers were...

Just returned from our fifth annual sisters week at sea ranch resort. Love all the upgrades done on the condos. Love that they removed the glass from the porches and now have the open porch. Beautiful! Sea side bistro was fabulous with the small plates and wonderful Waite staff. Can't wait till next year

After 8 years in NC, my wife and I decided we needed to visit OBX. One of my golf buddies had previously stayed at the Sea Ranch, so we decided to follow his recommendation. Are we ever glad we did. I made our reservation on-line Very easy. We arrived and we very graciously received at the front desk. We had...

We had a great experience. We rented one of the condos that has a balcony on the beach on one side and the parking lot on the other. We spent a lot of time on the balcony early in the morning watching the sunrise. The rooms are large and nicely furnished. All in all, we were very comfortable with the...

We arrived earlier than expected and our room was not quite ready. Cindy at the front desk took my cell number to call us when our room was ready. We went and had lunch and before long Cindy called and said that our room was ready. Upon check-in, she noticed that we were celebrating our 29th wedding anniversary. She wished...

We stayed on second floor and had quick easy beach access. You are right on the beach and you feel part of the action. Others had recommended being higher but the location was ideal for us. Take advantage of beach chair and umbrella rental for multiple days for a discount. Attendant is on beach and cash only. Room furnishings were...

Read others reviews before booking, so we got a room on the top floor. It was as to be expected. A decent hotel room, balcony overlooking the ocean and they offered amenities you might pay more for at others hotels. Our room was located along a path Pelicans took every evening heading south along the coast, quite a sight to...

This location is right on the beach but the building is worn and lacks appeal. To have the sun rise through your door to the balcony is worth it. The breakfast they served was not good at all with low-quality foodstuffs.
