We stayed at the Blockade Runner this April. As we drove into the parking lot, the building did not present itself very well. It's rather old and there is nothing to be done about that. I will say that every effort has been made to keep it well painted and clean. Our room was not ready (we were early) and... More

Staff were all friendly and courteous. Our room was a king with a balcony. It was clean but our toilet seemed to be 'slow' in flushing our evening there. We were celebrating our anniversary/birthdays and brought a bottle of wine. We forgot our own corkscrew. I called the front desk to also ask for another blanket and the cork screw.... More

Most important in any business now is service and the Blockade Runner's staff excel in professionalism, friendliness, efficiency, and hospitality! The decor in their new lobby and their pool patio is very inviting and comfortable. The canopied double wicker couches circled in groups of four amidst the colorful garden and tables on the pool decks near the long outdoor bar... More

Whether you have the ocean view and the glorious sunrise or the bay view and the sunset, there are no rooms without spectacular seaside views. I was most impressed with the lawn between the hotel and beach where kids were having a great time playing. A hot buffet breakfast is included which is an added bonus. I would definitely stay...

I booked 7 rooms for a sorority reunion, and was very pleased with the accommodations, friendly service, free breakfast, and dinner at the restaurant. It's hard to please 13 women, but all had good things to say about your hotel and staff. Thanks!

Have stayed here several times and the hotel is nice...nice breakfast, etc. I called to make a reservation for early May because we are having a HUGE wedding there next year and wanted to check them out for booking about 50 rooms! There was NO discount given, and actually the price was higher than advertised online... a HUGE ripoff. Such... More

I have stayed here several times and have always been pleased. The decor is very nice, and for an older hotel it is well maintained. Great location and staff. Restaurant is very good also. I plan to visit again...only wish I could visit more often!

My wife and I stayed here on a one-nighter when we went to Wilimington for a Bela Fleck concert UNCW. I asked some friends where to stay. Got a good deal on price (BOOK ONLINE!). Got there late and so just ate in the hotel restaurant. The meal and the service were SUPERB. Salad, fantastic Salmon, dessert. Very reasonable price.... More

Wish someone had told us when we booked that it was "maintenance season" loved listening to the power washer and construction instead of the ocean!!! And no housekeeping unless requested, since when??? Never been charge $100 upfront just in case we used the hotel restaurant, I've never even heard of that!!! Very unsatisfied!

Wife and I spent Fri & Sat night at the Blockade runner. The 2 day package included a dinner and breakfasts. The breakfast buffets were lukewarm at best and a cold breakfast is not the way to start the day. The included dinner was from a limited menu and the steak my wife ordered was off as if it was...
