My stay at the Blockade Runner was wonderful. My great experience started from the moment I arrived at the airport, from where I was collected by a friendly, chatty and polite shuttle driver. On the journey he talked enthusiastically about Wilmington and Wrightsville Beach, and gave me great tips for things to do. My room was really big, with two very comfortable beds and a beautiful view of the intra-coastal waterway. The bathroom was very well equipped. Overall, the room felt very homely. On my first night at the hotel I ate dinner in the busy restaurant. The meal was incredible value and was honestly one of the best I've eaten. Seriously amazing food. Breakfast each morning was plentiful and delicious. The best thing about the hotel, though, is the staff. Everyone was so friendly, kind and helpful. On my last night I asked at the front desk if they knew whether there would be any cafes/restaurants open at the airport early the next morning. They said they didn't, but they'd "have a brainstorm". Half an hour later, room service shows up with a plate of crackers, a croissant, fresh fruit and butter. What amazing service. They didn't even charge for the room service delivery. On the way the shuttle driver asked if he'd like him to stop en route so I could pick up breakfast, but I let him know his colleagues had arranged one. Overall, this was a great stay and I'd love to return.
