This is our third time staying there over the years and they continue to improve. They try very hard in cleanliness, friendliness and service. Some of the facilities seem kind of dated but overall they have kept up with renovating. The balcony room we stayed in was very nice. Included breakfast was decent and money saving. The only complaint we... More

I've stayed many times over the last 15 or so years, and the Blockade Runner does not disappoint! The location can't be beat, with beautiful ocean or harbor views. My favorite amenities include the scrumptious breakfast buffet, the great pool area, easy access to the beach, free parking in the hotel lot, and shuttle service to restaurants anywhere on the...

Wonderful hotel, great amenities, amazing staff. High prices for bar and restaurant but, it makes up for in serive, quality of food and drinks. Get rid of the fluffy bar stools. Not pleasant to sit down to find them wet.

The Blockade Runner is our vacation designation every year. We will never go any where else. I love the fact its older and has a wonderful history and has been in the same family for decades. They go above and beyond to make all guests happy. Just walking in the front lobby I feel like I am in the tropics.... More
