Had a wonderful stay, the staff was very nice & accommodating. I enjoyed the nice size hot tub. The room was very nice & the view was awesome! Breakfast was so good! Made to order because the buffet is normally open when the hotel is close to full. I enjoyed the quiet and special treatment. Will definitely go back.

Great weekend trip. Very friendly and courteous staff. The breakfast buffet is more than expected. A++++++++++ We will definitely come again. The decor is different and even amusing. No complaints at all.

I am in my last quarter of a century, and my parents used to enjoy spending days at the Blockade Runner. Of course I'm sure it's been updated several times since my parents were there, but it could use another one. It's "billed" as a "resort," and does have an ocean and the Sound, but so does every other building... More

Booked a room at the Blockade Runner when we were in town for a family function. The staff were friendly and eager to assist with any issues we had. Breakfast in the hotel restaurant was good, hotel bar was a nice place to grab a drink before heading off to bed. The decor throughout the hotel was dated and unimpressive.... More

We got a room because someone cancelled and did not realize that getting a harbourside view was perfect for the Holiday Flotilla with a warm front seat to watch all of the lighted boats parade across the harbour. The rooms were clean and very large; the staff extra attentative. the complimentary buffet breakfast the next morning was scrumptious and plentiful.

The property was nice and I liked my room alot. I saw some complain about the tile floors, prior to my visit, but it actually makes it feel cleaner than alot of places with carpet and gives it a more modern and spacious feel. The staff was very friendly and extremely helpful. They were more than glad to assist me... More

I just got back from a girls weekend at Wrightsville Beach. We stayed at the Blockade Runner and were very pleased. The service was great. They serve a fabulous breakfast that is included in the room rate. We were on the sound side which overlooked the parking lot, but you did have a view of the sound and the sunset... More

My wife and I booked the Rendevous Package for a get away weekend at the Blockade Runner. Everything was as advertised. We had a nice room with a full balcony overlooking the ocean. There was champagne and chocolate covered strawberries waiting on us. The breakfast buffet was excellent as was the included dinner on Saturday night. The location was excellent... More
