It was right on the beach. With an indoor pool! Front desk manager was very personable, and brought an extra blanket to our room right away when we asked.

The location is very close to the ocean. Even though this is no 5star hotel it is great for the ocean view. Much closer to the water than other hotels. Lay in the bed hearing the waves, feels like you are on the beach.

Bath tub was nasty. Floor in bathroom was dirty. Room smelled bad like it might have been wet and mildew. Drunk people outside in the area next to parking lot. Drunk man in restaurant so we left and went to Black Pelican to eat. Loud and drunk people down the hall. We won't be back.

Great place for a relaxing vacation!!

The Ocean front view was phenomenal!! Walked out on a very nice balcony and looked right down on the waves. The beds were very comfortable and the room very clean. Great comforters and pillows!!

Great location

Hotel is right on the beach.  A little tired looking. Room (ground floor facing parking lot) was well laid out and surprisingly quiet on a busy weekend.  Pool quite nice and underused. Restaurant good, somewhat expensive although hotel gives you 15% off.

Damp and musty hotel

I found my stay at the Sea Ranch Resort to be incredibly disappointing. Upon entering the room, I was encountered with a dank, musty smell. We asked to be moved to a different room, but were told none were available. We were offered an air freshener instead. We decided to tough it out and make the best of our weekend, but things only got worse. Upon taking of our shoes, we found that the carpet was incredibly damp, and the air conditioner was blowing out musty smelling air. We toughed it out for the night, but my partner was unable to sleep because of the poor air quality in the room. In the morning, we brought out issues up with hotel management, who sent a maintenance person to our room. He acknowledged that the room was very very damp, but stated nothing could be done due to the age of the hotel and the poor quality of the windows. Hotel management reiterated that no rooms were available, so we decided to leave early.

Fantastic View of the Atlantic Ocean

The view is 'up close' and perfect for us older folks that cannot hit the beach like we once did. The room was fresh and clean. How delighted we were to watch the moonlight dancing over the waves. The stay was beyond our expectations.
