I have to admit that at the conclusion of an 11-hour drive, my first thought upon seeing the boxy oceanfront structure took me back in time to those cramped and austere types of placed I might have stayed when traveling with my parents several decades ago. But I’ve learned over time not to judge too quickly. Inside the doors is... More

This is a hotel for a destination wedding. Not much else going on around it. The beds were uncomfortable and the room was fairly noisy. 2014 is their 50 anniversary and the building is showing its age. Beautiful grounds, nice restaurant

This is a pretty place to stay in Wrightsville for the views, beach access and rooms. The rooms are very nice, comfortable beds, large TV, really nice bathroom (though small). The complimentary breakfast buffet was very good with a large selection of food. It lacked the high end cook to make you a fresh omelette or waffle. Staff in the... More

The rates are high - but the room isn't particularly comfortable. It's a stark decor - not comfortable. Tile floor - old feel. No place to plug in computer, phones, etc. Bed is hard - not real comfortable. This is an old building revamped to appear like a "new" place. The Location is nice, but I think it is overpriced...

We enjoyed our stay at the blockade runner. The rooms were very nice and clean. The ambiance was excellent compared to other hotels in the area. The only issue we had was that the bar/restaurant was short staffed and the food/drinks a bit pricey. Overall an excellent stay and we will return in the future.

The room looked fine, right up to the time we opened the curtains. Glass stains so bad we didn't want to look through it. It was inside the glass, so cleaning didn't help. Seems like this has been there for some time and they've chosen to ignore it. Look, the beauty of an oceanside view is to...stare at the ocean!... More

The Blockade Runner is a fine, full service hotel that strives to be a 5-star boutique resort. It doesn't quite get there, but it is close. It is a fine place to stay, but it is not necessarily a place I will go out of my way to stay in the future. My wife and I had a long weekend... More

Beautiful grounds! A lot of time, money & energy goes into the colorful landscaping at BR & it shows! The rooms are large, bright, colorful & always clean. The beds are great & linens soft & inviting. BR is a great family place, but I also love staying there with just my hubby. Hands down, THE most helpful, pleasant staff... More

Let me preface by saying I am judging harsher than normal as this resort claims to be the premier resort in the area. Had it not, I'd give it 5.5 stars. Overall, the resort is beautiful - great manicured lawns, a cute retro lobby, and really large rooms. The places it lacked were in some of the details. For example,... More
