We had a great experience at the Blockade Runner Beach Resort. The staff was very helpful when making the reservations and checking in. My sister and I took our parents on vacation to celebrate my mother's birthday and it seemed the staff got into the spirit along with us. We were recognized throughout our stay and the staff was warm,... More

Maybe the title is a little harsh. The hotel looks quite dated on the outside, but the inside has been renovated and is very clean and well kept. The linens were clean and comfortable and the room was very spacious. The staff was very friendly upon arrival and very informative when we asked about different things to do in the... More

I spent 2 nights with my family; a business for me, a leisure for them. They loved their stay. My son enjoyed the beach and swam a lot. The room was spacious and modern with amazing view of the Atlantic. I wish they put some rugs on the floor near the beds (it's cold tiles). Unfortunately for me, I can't... More

This resort is great. The rooms are big and really nice, with great views. The pool is really nice and so are the finely manicured lawns on which you can play soccer. You also can't beat the location on the beach and close proximity to the center of town with restaurants and bars. If you never have to deal with... More

My family and I stayed at this hotel for a three day "mini-vacation". We had a great time. Check in was such an easy process...we even got to check in an hour early. We had a very nice room. I booked an Atlantic Ocean view, two queen bed room. The room was immaculate. I felt very comfortable (I hate dirty... More

We rented 2 rooms in the tower building on the 7th floor. One room faced the ocean and one the intercoastal harbor. Both had stunning views. The rooms are adequate, not fancy considering the high August beach rate but certainly nice enough if you are there to enjoy the beach. The access to the beach is wonderful, the pool is... More

The rooms are very clean and comfortable - beds sleep great as long as you can tune out the voices and snoring that you can hear through the walls! You are treated like royalty from the time you check in til the time you check out. The pool furniture and atmosphere with the poolside grill & bar is awesome. Be... More

The service was excellent. We were always impressed with how friendly and helpful everyone was, from the front desk to the pool attendants to the restaurant. Our room faced the bay and I loved the view. We were on the 6th floor which had been "newly renovated". The room was clean, but there were a few things that still need... More

The rooms were clean and large. I spent some of my vacation working, and we had full access to the internet. I brought my 2 teenage sons, and they had a blast in the ocean! I also really appreciated the complimentary breakfast. It was a buffet, and with 2 boys, I need that. The food was great too! We were... More

We stayed at the blockade runner for a family reunion. While the price of the rooms was higher than I expected for a beach front resort, a full breakfast buffet was included. The food (breakfast and dinner) was excellent at the motel restaurant. The staff was friendly and helpful. The rooms were very clean.
