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!

Close to the beach.

Posted Jun 20, 2014
Pros: Convenience to businesses
Location: Shopping and attractions.
We were close to the beach, the only problem was the coffee maker in the room was out of order. The staff was very nice and helpful. I would recommend it to friends or family.

Last minute trip to the beach

Posted May 21, 2014
Pros: Quiet, clean. Beach front.
Cons: Absolutely nothing.
Location: Besides the beach, shopping, Wright Brother's Memorial, Lost Colony, Elizabethan Gardens, NC Aquarium.
We tried to find a place for a last minute trip to the Outer Banks. Finally gave up searching on our own and put Expedia to work. Reservation was confirmed for a 2 queen bed standard room VERY pleasantly surprised to be upgraded to Ocean Front 2 bedroom condo. Staff was wonderful, very helpful. Despite the fact the hotel was booked with several weddings for the weekend - surroundings were peaceful and quiet. The most noise we heard from from the waves crashing on the surf. We had lunch in the on site restaurant - food and service were terrific.

Nice small hotel with great beach access.

Posted May 8, 2014
Cons: Bit pricey for off-season rooms not on the ocean.
The hotel is small and has great access to the beach. The ocean view rooms don't provide much of a view, but the rooms are clean and comfortable.

Nice room but small lobby & limited restaurant hrs

Posted Apr 19, 2014
Pros: The rooms were clean and comfortable.
Cons: Expand the lobby. Open the restaurant for breakfast lunch and dinner for every day during the weeks before and after Easter when many families travel
Location: Convenient to beach, restaurants, Kmart, Belks, Food Lion, miniature golf, Wright Brothers' Memorial, Jockey Ridge State Park, and movie theatre.
Upon arrival we were disappointed that the on-site restaurant would be closed for the entire length of our stay planned for Sunday PM thru Thurs AM. We enjoyed the proximity to good restaurants, the beach, and family activities. The rooms were accessed from outside (motel style), but the furniture and d├ęcor of the room was comfortable and current. Next trip, we will spend a little more to stay at the Hilton Garden Inn.
