After living in and visiting Wilmington off and on over the past 25 years and only ever hearing good things about the property, I was very much looking forward to our stay at the Blockade Runner. However from the garish "Miami-themed" lobby (they were WAY off on that one) to the very sad and dirty finishes of the hotel room,... More

We stayed here for a spring college tour trip. My family of four, with two teens, really loved this place. It has the feel of a boutique hotel with great amenities and a perfect location. The staff was very friendly and made us feel at home. We felt welcome the moment we stepped out of the car. The breakfast included... More

The facility and its staff are super. Proximity to the beach and Wilmington make it even better. Though I think this was a good enough rating trip advisor demands 200 charachterd so I instead of just quitting (because I want to give credit to the Blockade Runner) I am just adding charachterd

The room was nicely decorated in addition to tile and wood floors, no carpet. The wait staff were nice, food menu a bit limited and expect slow service at... More

Wonderful family trip filled with great memories!! Both the sound side and ocean front were fabulous! The pool and hot tub were great. The staff is wonderful. The food and drinks are a bit pricey but on vacation have to live a little! Great time!
