Location was perfect, right on the beach!
Can't think of anything!
Wish I had a better view.
We stayed at sea ranch for our annual ladies trip this year. From the staff to the grounds to the rooms was excellent! We had a great time and it was located perfectly!
being right on the beach was super! loved having the small fridge and microwave! restaurant food was very good! All staff seemed very polite and the nighttime music was a bonus!! kinda liked it not being a real large place too!
The bed was hard :( and i was put in a king bed room instead of two queens which as a bit of a let down, but surprisingly the pull out was more comfy than the bed?!!
The elevators were extremely slow
Location. Central to shopping and restaurants. Our oceanfront room had a perfect view and the balcony was great. Easy beach access from our building, just walk to the second floor and go out the back door. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom was clean.
Cigarette butts below the hotel on the beach. The elevator was broken one of the days we were there, made it slightly inconvinient due to having an infant.
Access to the beach and friendly staff
Very limited amenities. The hotel doesn't offer beach chairs or towels. You have to rent them. Very small swimming pool. Very small bistro with so so food and obstructed view of the beach. The place is over priced for what they offer.
Oceanfront room, staff was very friendly and helpful
Great location, room was nice, clean & comfortable, amenities were just right. We will definitely consider going back with our kids in the future.
The stairwells could use a little cleaning up - they definitely show age in ways the rooms did not. The air conditioner was really loud. We often go to the beach with my parents and the beach access is a fairly steep staircase with a tall last step, that would be a big problem for my aging mother.
I called ahead to say we would Be arriving in middle of night early am,so our room would not be given away. Was not original plan but work prevented leaving PA prior to 9pm! Told "No problem, 24hr front desk, your room will be waiting". Got to hotel after 6+hrdrive thru storms 4am. (Weather not anyone's fault or control). Was told at check in desk-"Oh we had u down as a NO Show & assigned soneone your room." I informed night clerk I had Called at 2 pm to say we would be arriving very late middle of might& told it was ok! Our room would be waiting"! She did some other movind yhibgs around so we did mot have to move rooms for next night (1plus). The room smelled so musty & moldy. Turned on AC helped smell some. But there were ANTS on every counter, night stand, bathroom counters, desk. And if u did not see any once you put down anything on a surface ants surrounded it! IE cell phone, remote, cup. GROSS!! None were noted in beds but afraid to put bags or things down! Put things on chairs n balcony out of rain if possible. When called to complain was told "yes, Mam there are ants everywhere, sorry. Musty smell is what you get at the beach". Really?? Well, not when & where we have stayed before! Our Bill was wrong thank god I had all info/receopt on my cell. That was corrected before we left. All the staff kept pushing was the resturant and indoor pool! Ants a over room think NOT in kitchen resturant?? We stayed far away from the resturant ! Why eould I want to go to indoor pool At The Beach?? Hotel Beach front. We had great view of Parking Lot! Loud BOTH ams-kids running in hall, housekeeing loud, doors slamming, No comps, Nothing more than "sorry" from one staff member rt complaints. Was going to Complain to manager at check out But she was dealing with a guest WHO just fell in their lobby from something spilled on floor. We could Not leave fast enough!!!
I love the fact we were located on the beach. Balcony overlooked the beach and we could hear the roar of the ocean. It was a great view/beds were great. I love the Outer Banks and have stayed elsewhere, but this was the best view.
The price. I paid because of the location I new it would be high and it was the "high season", but over all the room was not a high dollar resort room. The bathroom tissue was extremely cheap and I know that is not a real complaint, but for the money I spent it should have been a little more high end in all areas. I don't mind spending money when I get my monies worth. Next time I will find a cheaper place and just bring a chair for the beach.
Oceanfront room and kitchenette
Dirty beach... If guests can't pick up after themselves the resort should as owners!
Great location- right on the beach Close to attractions/restaurants Friendly staff
Doors made very loud noise when closing Ants in room
The cleaning staff was good but there was ants everywhere from min one. The place smelled like bug repelling chemicals. Also we had lots of bags with small kids and they put us in the building with no elevator and offered no help. The pool was not good but the location of the hotel Is perfect. The restaurant there is also really good.
I can't say enough about her. She was very friendly and recommended anyplace to eat that was out of this world.
We enjoyed the location of the property and our room. While we did not have an ocean view, we understood due to our last minute booking. We were pleasantly surprised and impressed by the quality of food and food presentation in the restaurant, service was as good as the food. I recommend this restaurant to anyone.
We understood the Sea Ranch is a OBX traditions and has been around forever, the rooms were somewhat updated and well kept, the facility was well kept for the amount of traffic that visits the hotel. BUT we were plagued by ants throughout the entire room and bathroom, ants in your toothbrush is not a good thing. Additionally the door hinges were loud, general maintenance could easily attended to this and avoided the problem. Also the door latch did not keep door closed, causing us to have to slam the door each time it was used. We were annoyed by the door issues as I am sure our neighbors were. Again, reports of these issues should have been reported by housekeeping to maintenance long ago and would have avoided this complaint.
Room was recently renovated, AC worked great, beds were comfortable and the hotel restaurant was as good as any place we dined during our stay.
For the price I expected a full slate of tv channels (most channels were unavailable) other than 1 HBO channel all channels were basic cable. No continental breakfast! For 3+ bills a night I want at least a donut in the morning! The pool was in the parking lot and not inviting at all but then I don't go to the beach to hang at the pool. Again, for the price I expect beach chairs and umbrella part of the price.
No outdoor pool, rooms didn't feel clean.
I loved that I could see the beach and listen to the waves from our room. What a great location!
There was a horrible odor that smelled like sewage. They had to give us a different room and it was full of ants. I took a video and asked the general manager to give me a refund but she said she couldnt because I booked through booking.com but when I pressed further she said she would call booking.com and call me back on a monday. That was a week ago and I still have not heard from her. She offered me a certificate for a free stay at a furture date and I declined. I would not recommend Sea Ranch at all.
The hotel was a very nice place to visit the rooms were clean and had a great view. Except for a few things that scared my wife it was not bad.
Well the first night someone tried to break in on us at 3:30 AM. The second night a party outside our room on the beach went on to 2:30 AM I had to call and tell the staff just to call the police.
It was clean and convenient to the beach.The staff was somewhat friendly.
My room had hundreds of ants in it. We couldn't leave any open bags of food out. Also, the rooms were very small for the cost per night.
I liked how close you were to everything. It was clean and the staff were very friendly. I liked how close we were to the beach/ ocean. You could see the dolphins swim by every morning.
Pool was a little small and the beds were a little too firm for me.
