Great place to stay and really close to the beach.

Posted Aug 17, 2014
Pros: I like that it was clean, friendly staff, lots of parking close to lots of food places, also a wonderful cafe/restaurant inside the resort.
Cons: The only thing that it didn't have was a laundry facility. The room we had that had squeaky doors, and bad outlets.
Location: The location is close to the beach, lots of food places, lots of put putt golf, Wright Brothers monument, light houses, movie theater, stores.
the resort was close to lots of places of interest, lots of food places. The resort has a great bar and restaurant, nice inclosed pool, and a work out room. I like that you can go out the door and to the beach. The beds were really comfortable, The room has a refrigerator and microwave, a hair dryer, ironing board, and iron. It is close to all food places, lots of activities, shopping, lighthouses, sand dunes.

Bad experience, but they took good care of us

Posted Aug 15, 2014
Pros: Great staff
They hotel had an issue with some ants, which they were actively trying to resolve. They were not able to get us another room in their hotel, but they were able to talk to other hotels in the area and very quickly work out an arrangement. So while we were not able to stay at this hotel, they did take very good care of us. I would certainly give them another chance!

room 414

Posted Aug 14, 2014
Pros: So glad we got a room with a balcony.Other oceanview rooms had the option of a screened in porch. I would never get a room without the oceanview.
Cons: The beach access area needs a bigger deck, I think. It would be really nice if you invested in an oceanside pool. The parking lot pool is uncool.
Location: Bad Bean Burrito is a great place for some really delicious, cheap tacos. Gourmet and $2.99 a piece. Also Mama Kwan's has a decent menu.
We stayed in room 414, a corner oceanview room with a balcony. There was a fridge and a microwave which was great for us because we don't like to eat out breakfast or lunch much. I noted the room number for you because we complained of a water leak in the corner by the breaker box upon checkout. We didn't report it soon because our room was fine and we didn't want to change. We loved sitting on our balcony in the morning listening to the waves while we read our books and did some people watching. Your hotel door opens onto the breezeway, facing the sound. It's kind of like a motel in that sense, but it is the beach and if it was enclosed, there'd be lots of sand to vacuum daily. I would stay here again.

Beautiful view

Posted Jul 29, 2014
Pros: Clean, friendly service, nice view
We had a great view on the 2nd floor, right on the beach. We had a mini frig, microwave, hair dryer and iron, suggested places to eat. They had a magic show for kids on Wed. night and a resturant with an out door deck.

Nice hotel, terrible staff at the front desk.

Posted Jul 27, 2014
Everything was great with the exception of the lady working the front desk. She was extremely rude, and had no desire to help us. I would not recommend this hotel because if they allow personnel to carry themselves in this manner I cannot imagine what else the staff does.

Nice hotel, on the beach.

Posted Jul 16, 2014
Pros: Staff are friendly, rooms are clean and hotel is beach side. Small pool, price ok for the high season
Cons: Ocean side means overlooking the car park. Nothing to do with the ocean, more to do with the road side. Adequate description please.
Location: Outer banks things to do...... Look it up! Great spot even if you only want to go to the beech
Just be aware that ocean side rooms are far from the ocean with a view of the car park. This is a deceiving selling point. Noisy too!

Nice, clean, updated hotel right on the beach

Posted Jul 8, 2014
Stayed here as an add on to our yearly OBX vacation home rental. Have stayed in a few other places, but this was the best by far and our new "go to". Rooms are updated and her clean and our oceanfront room was just that - right on the ocean! Nice having a small restaurant/bar right on location, too. The breakfast was cooked to order - I had a 3 egg omelet with my choice of three items. Excellent! Would definitely recommend the Sea Ranch Resort!
