Love, Love, Love staying here!! We are repeat customers. This is a very well kept motel, which has all the modern updates. The rooms are very spacious with large flat screens, comfy beds, and updated bathroom. Beautiful views from balcony, you should request upper floor. Pool area is smaller, so I am sure that in high demand summer months it... More

This is a very clean nice older family owned motel. Beds were comfortable. The view was nice. Pool was little cold for my taste and hot tub could have been warmer but still relaxing and area was kept clean. Property was very quiet. Room had a small kitchen area with nice selection of dishes but we didn't really cook or... More

I have been coming to visit Blockade Runner going on 22 years. It can't get any better. The Hotel is right on the beach and the service is over the top. Michael,Ms. Emily, and Janice couldn't be any nicer and accomadating. This is the only place I will stay when I come to the beach.

The Blockade Runner is a throw-back to beach trips from my youth. It is a clean motel with everything you need and nothing you don't. I love not having to pay huge amounts of money that the new high-rise hotels charge just to have it 'new'. The Blockade Runner is clean and has wonderful private balconies with excellent views directly... More

If you're looking for a resort experience or modern suites, this is not your bag. If you want a place to have a meal, chill after the beach and before dinner, and have a good night's sleep right on the beach, book it now! You can't do better for the price. My family of two adults and two teens were... More

Stayed for the weekend for a Lacrosse tournament in North Myrtle Beach. Nice beach view & access. Request a room above the 1st floor in order to see the beach. Pool is at the side of the hotel. Room size (where beds are) is spacious, but bathroom space was extremely tight for more than one person. Hotel was quiet, but... More

The location, cleanliness, & service is superb !! The room and kitchen were larger than expected, along with a huge balcony. The restaurant was great ! Hope to stay here again and will refer others. The only problem was having to leave !!!

We visited June 18, 2015. Awaking on June 19, everyone in my party awoke to itching rashes. Upon strpping the bedding, I located two bed bugs. I placed them in a box to show to management. They weren't too concerned and didn't ask to see the bug. This means to me they were already aware of the problem. The money... More

We decided at the last minute to take a 3 day vacation to Cherry Grove. Looking online at the local hotels, we didn't think that it would be affordable until I happened upon The Blockade Runner. They had an available room on the fifth floor and the rate was considerably lower than neighboring hotels. So we took a chance and... More
