The Blockade Runner is a clean, no frills hotel in the Cherry Grove section of North Myrtle Beach. This was our second stay and we'll certainly go back again. If you really like resort style hotels with 20 floors, lazy rivers, water parks and endless parking decks, this is not the place for you. However, if you want a stress free, easy in-easy out kind of place with a good location, then this could be your answer. Restaurants and stores are within walking distance. Cherry Grove Pier is close as well. Since this area does not have the concentration of resort hotels, the beach is less crowded and has easy access. The hotel only has five floors. There is one elevator but we never had a long wait for it. We chose the stairs for the most part even though we were on the 5th floor.
The staff is friendly and courteous and were attentive to our needs. Again, a fine no nonsense property with convenient parking, a nice restaurant and clean (if not fancy) rooms. Highly recommended!
