It's expensive, but the staff is plentiful and responsive. The rooms don't have balconies, but the windows open and there are comfortable chairs overlooking the ocean. It's an older building but is well maintained. Pool bar is nice but expensive.

The food was fantastic! We dined on site for most of the stay. The beach chairs were really comfortable. The staff was friendly. The water was warm, and no sharks in sight. Definitely returning. Only one thing to improve....the internet speed was really rely slow.

Amazing staff, wonderful location, and great food. We're glad we decided to return to the Blockade Runner for the 4th of July. Daughter begged us to make it an annual tradition! We think it's a great idea. See you guys soon!

Not worth the price charged. They charge fancy resort prices for cheap motel accommodations. Cheap motel pool. Not enough parking so you are forced to valet. Very outdated rooms and hallways. Not worth it!

Nice facility. Staff was very accommodating. Room was clean and roomy. Soft check-in let us get our parking pass/wrist band so we could enjoy the beach while waiting on the 3pm check-in. Located close to ocean, inter-coastal waterway and historical Wilmington. Excellent complimentary breakfast.

You bought boats for customers and I will not be back with a 6 room reservation because I got a boy slip on the southern end and my boat got beat up brcause of that. It will cost me $300 to fix the problems of where you put my boat

The grounds of this hotel are awesome. Plenty of room for the kids to run and run. Upon check in, the front desk clerk assured us that our room was next door to our friends who were traveling with us. However, when they checked in, this was not the case and they were at the opposite end of the hall.... More

Hands down this was the best hotel I stayed at. Friendly staff, Clean lining and bathrooms. The food is delicious, maybe slightly overpriced but good and worth it. My expectations were exceeded. I will definitely stay here again and would recommend to any and all who have not stayed here before.

My family and I just relocated to Wilmington. Having lived here before myself I wanted to give them a great experience before our new house was ready. The Blockade Runner certainly checked all the boxes. Great location and service, the staff were polite, helpful and considerate, the hotel itself has been undergoing renovations so the rooms are beautiful with new... More
