Enjoyed Most: The location was great!
Other Comments: Big stain on the "refurbished room" carpet (oceanfront room) Very worn and appearing to be unclean bedspreads Hundreds of dead mosquitoes on balcony and patio door

Enjoyed Most: Room was ocean front, just steps from the water. Watched beautiful sunrise and sunset from our balcony
Other Comments: Nice surprise to be upgraded from a king ocean front room to a king ocean front suite upon check in. The room was perfect, just what we were looking for to spend a quiet weekend enjoying the beach. The restaurant service was excellent! The only minor negative was the 2 nd full bath was not upgraded, all other spaces were upgraded and beautifully decorated. Will definitely go back!

Enjoyed Most: The Bistro with nightly music.
Other Comments: They charge a daily $25 pet fee. The pictures of the resort do not do it justice. It was much nicer than I expected.

Enjoyed Most: I do not know where to begin.. EVERYTHING! And I mean EVERYTHING!! was so great! Our room was spectacular! The Travel Zoo rate was ridiculously the BEST for an ocean front room we have ever had. The Staff from the front desk, Maid Service, bartenders and wait staff were ALL so friendly and on point! We just didn't want to leave!!
Other Comments: This place is our new FAVORITE vacation spot! We would drive the 5 hours for a long weekend just to get the all around GREAT experience again!! LOVED!!! IT!!! TY! Travel Zoo or we would of missed out on this gem! ( And we have been coming to OBX for the last 13 years)!

Enjoyed Most: We were moved to a different Hotel because when we reserved our room through Travelzoo, OBX was experiencing a hurricane and Sea Ranch systems were down.
Other Comments: For our inconvenience, Sea Ranch provided us with breakfast vouchers for our stay. Our friends were able to keep their reservations and got an oceanfront room with a balcony that was very nice. We ended up at the Quality Inn Oceanfront but not in a oceanfront room. We would have had a nicer experience if our room was oceanfront.

Enjoyed Most: Nice place on the beach, very clean and friendly front desk staff. Our package included breakfast each morning, three choices, cooked to order, all very good. I guess we could have ordered off the menu and paid a premium over the three included selections.

Paul Sep 27, 2016 WHISPERING PINES, NC, United States
Enjoyed Most: The ocean front room was great. The whole end of the room was windows so we were able to enjoy the view inside as well as on the balcony.
Other Comments: Their restaurant has a gourmet chef and the food was excellent.

Enjoyed Most: The wonderful ocean front room with a balcony plus the BEST restaurant on the Outer Banks, Beachside Bistro! It's a hidden gem... I want to thank all the waiters that we had the pleasure of meeting: Tucker, Lance, Mattie/Pie and manager Teresa. Great service with a smile and sometimes a story to tell. We ate only in this restaurant all week - that's how delicious the food is there. Thanks so much!! Perfect location: the Sea Ranch is in close proximity to many activities! Highly recommend!
