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

Nice, a bit under decorated. Had a very creepy old wooden elevator. Room had a great view and hotel had a great location but it did not have a warm or cozy vibe. Didnt have good coffee either unless you like a bitter taste. Overall good, but the bed was not comfortable at all we both had bad backaches after... More

An oceanfront room with a balcony at the Blockade Runner provides the perfect spot to enjoy the beach. The view across the garden to the beach is spectacular. The Blockade Runner is not particularly fancy, just really nice--big room, beautiful view, hear the waves break, clean, friendly, helpful staff. The restaurant is good. We ate all our meals there (the... More
