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

Spacious room with balcony! The only negative is the television would turn off by itself. It seemed to be on its last leg. The air conditioning was not robust! Friendly staff and nice breakfast included! Tip. Get your coffee from elsewhere! The absolute worst coffee I have ever had!

My wife and I recently spent three days at the Blockade Runner and thoroughly enjoyed it. The young staff was excellent and the service everywhere was very good. The hotel was not crowded and the weather was perfect, so I'm sure that had something to do with it. Drinks at the pool bar are pricey but hey, you're at the... More

This older hotel has had a face lift but in many ways is still a bit tired.It is clean and overpriced ,but does offer a free buffet breakfast every morning. The sound side has a lovely view, but the faux balcony was a bit disappointing. We had some plumbing problems and there are NO ice machines. They will bring ice... More

I have been a returning guest to the Blockade Runner for over 35 years. The staff and service has always been excellent. The view on either side of the hotel is beautiful. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The breakfast buffet has something for everyone to enjoy. I just love it.

I stayed at The Blockade Runner over Labor Day week-end. The hotel was full but It was a wonderful stay. Every staff member I encountered was smiling and went out of their way to make sure you were happy. Sure the staff was young but they did a fabulous job. The landscaping is gorgeous and the location is perfect -just... More

My daughter attends UNCW and we live in NJ, so whenever I get the chance, I go to visit and stay at the Blockade Runner. I have found it to be comfortable no matter what the season. Of course, summer is the best. The staff couldn't be more helpful. I stayed at another hotel one summer because this hotel was... More

The hotel was gorgeous, the view was beautiful, the staff was friendly, the food was fantastic. What more could we ask for?!! We stayed for a wedding that took place at the hotel (in 2012) and everything was so pretty. Can't wait to stay here again with the family.
