Outstanding property! Will stay here again. The location is great and the view and access to the beach is unique for a Wilmington hotel. The breakfast was very good and dining room view exceptional. Only issue was the hot/cold shower dial was very dirty.

This place was nice. Beds were comfy, rooms were clean if a tiny bit dated, check in staff was terrific. Friendly, helpful. It was off-season so nice and quiet. Amazing views from the balcony. Biggest drawback: the shared walls are a bit thin. You could easily hear folks in the next room. Also, what's up with the name - Blockade...

I'm sure the hotel used to be great back in the day, but it still needs lots of renovation. The Jacuzzi was under construction and some of the hotel areas were outdated. The health score at the restaurant was only 86. If we had known that, we would have never eaten there.

I really enjoyed my stay at Blockade Runner Beach Resort. I stayed for one night, but it was great. The beds were super comfy and the breakfast was great. Since breakfast was supposed to be included in the room rate, I was surprised to receive a bill after I ate, but it was all $0s so that was fine. The...

Wonderful room that was clean and comfortable. Beautiful updated decorations. Staff was always smiling and happy to help during check in, check out and food services. Romantic, but relaxing. Great food and view! We will be back to stay longer!

We found this location welcoming and very clean. The beds were comfortable and the hotel was quiet for sleeping. We enjoyed the restaurant free breakfast as well as our dinners. Proximity to the beach was great as well.

Room was great,but shower leaked a constant super cold water and shower has a half door which meant those big towels would be used as a mop. Breakfast buffet food was ice cold, not one item remotely warm.

Most unfriendly front desk I've ever encountered. It was January at an ocean front hotel with hardly anyone staying there and everything was an upcharge. Couldn't even check out late without a $35 charge. Missed the free breakfast ends at 9:30am, wanted to ala carte and told during Sunday brunch there is none. Had to leave to eat breakfast! TERRIBLE!!!!

Thank you for allowing us to complimentary upgrade you to an oceanfront room during your stay. We hope you will give us a chance to provide a sensational service experience in the future.
