We found the facilities and our room to be very clean and well-maintained. Meal service and our dinner and breakfast were excellent. This would be an exciting place to stay for a vacation during the season. We will recommend it to anyone looking for a beach experience.

Excellent location, beautiful views, and phenomenal staff. We travel quite a bit, and this was by far our best experience at a hotel. In fact, we liked it so much that we decided to come back for a second night! We will absolutely come back in the future! Coming in the off-season was optimal for us, as prices were significantly...

Great time. The Blockade Runner's staff make the experience fun. In retrospect, I wish I had got a room with a tub. However, the shower was certainly large, modern and nice. I would recommend Blockade Runner to friends and colleagues. It does not disappoint!

The accommodations were clean and contemporary with stunning views (both ocean and harbor). Staff was friendly and courteous. The complimentary breakfast was delicious but especially liked the New Year's brunch.

The place is over 50 years old. The room phone did not work. The AC did not work. They have vinyl floors in the hallway that had pockets of air in it and as you walk on the floor the bubbles move. They "Remodeled" a few years ago by adding some new furniture. Time to "Overhaul".

This was my first stay here. The outside of the facility is deceiving. The lobby is very nice. Our room was nice, but not elegant. The bathroom was a bit strange and compact. There was a window over the sink looking into the bedroom area instead of a mirror. The mirror was actually over the toilet. The fixtures were upgraded... More

It was a great stay. I enjoyed the view and the amazing breakfast. I think the hotel needs a complete renovation but the workers were so nice. The checking in/out process was speedy and great quality.

Highly recommend this hotel to anyone, business, families, couples or solo. Stimulating interior that stands out!! Great beaches and local restaurants all around. Unique and professional. Even in the winter time this place rocks, a stylish place with a relaxed atmosphere.
