Some of the most lovely, well tended gardens I have seen in a long time! Dinner is superb. The room with balcony was all that one could ask for. Service was outstanding throughout the hotel. We will be back!

Great food, accomadations below average, ants in room and cat in pool area on table, not very sanitary. Could have used more hand towels and a laundry bag for dirty cloths. Front desk was OK, did not go out of their way to really make the stay a memorable experience.

Very clean hotel! Friendly staff and a gorgeous lobby! Nice place to stay on a visit to the beach! You're also close to a lot of great restaurants and surf shops. We will definitely be staying here again.

Not the level of quality expected. Bird poop on windows. Shower not working properly. Beach chair stolen. Free breakfast was mediocre. Issues reported to front desk never really addressed, other than allowing us to change rooms. New room also had bird poop on windows, which no one ever cleaned.

Would recommend on a consistent basis-this is the place to come over and over again as the staff remembers the whole family.A relationship has been established with all my family members and they can not wait to return because they are remembered .Children are safe as the hotel is small enough to see all and have interaction with staff.

With school starting in late August, Wrightsville becomes pretty peaceful, and the Blockade Runner is a super spot right on the beach within walking distance of restaurants and the center of town. Pool, sauna, gym, and hot tub are nice.

Such a relaxing get-away for my husband and I. We've been coming for years and it has become our favorite beach destination! Restaurants within walking distance are a huge plus. We'll be back for sure!
