Great view! Would stay here again!
Having an ocean-view room was amazing!! The hotel room and was fine- nothing too special, but it worked well. There was plenty of space for a twin air mattress, and a small table/2 chairs. There was really close access to the beach, and I LOVE that there was a hose to easily wash off the sand before going back into the hotel. The only drawback to the hotel was that even though there were no smoking signs, including on the balconies, people still frequently did it. Unfortunately a few times our nice relaxing time on our balcony having a snack and enjoying the view were cut short because people above us were smoking on their balconies. I really wish the hotel would enforce their policy.

Good last minute trip!
The weather was wonderful for our little 4 day get away. Check in was a breeze and the woman working was darling, I didn’t get her name but she was so pleasant. Ed was also wonderful, very helpful and nice to talk with. The restaurant was great, we had breakfast one morning and looked out over the ocean from the outdoor patio. We had drinks out there one evening as well. It’s centrally located to most attractions, while being right on the beach. The room was extremely clean. They seem to take care of their building and rooms. The only downfall was the one of the members of house keeping was very rude when I told her my son got sick to his stomach the last night we stayed. I asked if they had a laundering service so that I could wash his sheet and for an few extra towels she was rude. However with the politeness from everyone else and good accommodations all the way around I would still stay here again and give this 8/10

Wrong room, ended up making it work.
Clean, 2 different places to rinse of after leaving beach. One MAJOR flaw. Was supposed to get room that slept 5: 3 adults, 2 kids. Got in room....only 2 beds. We bought air mattress, but not enough floor space. Ended up having to rent another room. Was not happy at an extra $350 expense just to be able to sleep. That being said, pool was nice, warm, clean, nice size. Balcony overlooking the ocean, so beautiful sunrises. My advice, be sure room is what you requested. I think overall it was everyone choosing to not let there mistake ruin our vacation that made it work.

2/10 Poor

My worst hotel experience
I am deeply disappointed with my stay at Sea Ranch Resort. I decided to go there based on past reviews but it was one of the worst hotels I stayed at. The second floor we stayed did not have elevator. The food at the restaurant on the first day was not cooked properly and took a long time. The receptionist was not very friendly. For the amount of money the hotel did not even include a simple breakfast. Even though the indicated the hotel offers beach access, there was no beach chairs, umbrellas or towels offered by the hotel. The pool was so small that we did not even bother to use it. The hotel lobby was smaller than my living room in a small apartment. The cleaning team was not prompt and they did not even bother to clean our room most of the stay. The bed covers gave me dirty feeling. I will never stay at this hotel again no matter how reasonably priced even though this time around the price was kind of high.

Clean, great view, comfy bed, large room, only negative i could say is that it was unbearably hot inside where the enclosed pool is.
