My family and I just relocated to Wilmington. Having lived here before myself I wanted to give them a great experience before our new house was ready. The Blockade Runner certainly checked all the boxes. Great location and service, the staff were polite, helpful and considerate, the hotel itself has been undergoing renovations so the rooms are beautiful with new... More

Recently visited the Blockade Runner again. Service was excellent and the rooms were updated and very clean. We stayed in a room with an ocean view and a real balcony which was a real plus. Only negative is having to pay for beach chairs/umbrella on the beach. After paying their rates for the room, having to pay for beach chairs... More

We were in town for Freshman Orientation at UNC-W. Love staying here mainly just because of the location/reputation. Check-in was quick and we were soon down to enjoy the pool/bar. Lots of UNC-W college kids work here and they are wonderful. So polite and interesting to talk with. We love Blockade Runner because breakfast is included and there are plenty... More

The Blockade Runner is over 50 years old but has been renovated in a modern, beachy decor. You would never know its age! Good job! We had an issue with the elevators not working when we arrived and management took care of us immediately and upgraded us. Another gold star for the hotel! Rooms were spacious and clean. Balcony was... More

The location of the hotel is perfect as it fronts the beach. I highly recommend staying in a room with a balcony as the views are wonderful. The food and service at the East Restaurant was very good and the complimentary breakfast is a perfect way to start the day. The rooms were decorated nicely but the bathroom is a... More

This was our first stay at the resort. Everything was bright and clean and the staff could not have been more friendly. The overall service was great without being intrusive. The free, daily breakfast was outstanding and a great way to start the day.

Access to both beach and sound/channel with amenities located at both! Resort is located in a great location to access surrounding area but you will find it hard to leave the... More
