Great service, everyone at the hotel was helpful and courteous. It is walking distance to the 'downtown' area of Wrightsville Beach. If you need to go anywhere and don't want to drive, the hotel will drive you and pick you up, free of charge. You can tip, of course.

Staff was absolutely wonderful! Enjoyed a lovely weekend and got to see the updated, cool improvements to the property. Chef did an amazing job and very creative. The only negative comment is the bathrooms are very small. Worth a return trip very soon.

The Blockade Runner is celebrating it's 50th anniversary, but you wouldn't know it by the modern decor. Our room was quite nice with a Keurig machine, refrigerator, and comfortable chairs. The staff was wonderful, being very helpful by fixing a reservation mistake on our part. There are several great local restaurants nearby, but parking was a challenge. The breakfast was... More

Recently spent one night, while on the North Carolina coast at the Blockcade Runner hotel. Great location and décor (very 60s retro and well done!), right on the beach, nicely landscaped, cool rooms and wonderful restaurant. Chose a room overlooking the Sound side. Nice views of the boats, sunset and nightlights. We stayed on the 4th floor to avoid looking... More

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
