Had good and bad experiences. Luke warm water for the shower that was fixed quickly the second night of stay,very noisy, drunk neighbors the first night, not a great view from our "ocean front" room. Paid more for the room than what was booked on line. Breakfast was great, the floor staff really nice and the beach privacy was great.

If you are looking for a beach getaway, the Blockade Runner is a great option. It offers ocean front dining and direct access to the beautiful Wrightsville beach. The staff in the hotel was friendly and the included breakfast buffet offered a nice relaxing start to the day. I visited for business, but would definitely consider bringing my family back... More

This place was just what we were looking for, right on the ocean, clean and comfortable. Quick drive to Wilmington downtown as well. Awesome buffet breakfast included. Our only complaint was the lack of a microwave in the room. The rooms did have a fridge and coffeemaker though. Yes, the bathrooms are small as some have mentioned, but they are... More

The hotel was very nice. We had a room with a balcony and enjoyed it. The beds were comfortable. My kids enjoyed the complimentary breakfast. When someone in another room turned on their shower it made a lot of noise in our room. Overall, a nice stay.

My husband, my brother, his wife and I enjoyed the accommodations after attending a family reunion in the Wrightsville Beach area. It was a delightful way to relax and appreciate the ocean and each others' company. The breakfast buffet was very good. I will be happy to return any time.

Great location. Rooms decent. Free breakfast fantastic, but no self-serve coffee service in the lobby - a disappointment for early risers. Water tastes like it came from the pool. Bring your own bottled water.

I love how the staff there treat you with kindness and make sure you are comfortable. They go beyond to make you feel at home. They greet you every time you come and leave. Parking was great with NO Fee!!!

From check in to check out, this was a truly delightful experience. I can't wait to stay again and bring others along, too! The breakfast was delicious; the oceanfront room with a balcony was breathtaking. Loved watching Netlfix shows on the tv. Beautifully upgraded shower!

Check-in staff was not welcoming - did not offer to help with baggage; provided a key card on 3 occasions that did not work and was not overly helpful with fixing the matter; the HVAC was not working when I arrived - maintenance was timely and the matter was corrected - this was just an inconvenience; I was told by...
