5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

For the past 4 years, my family and I have stayed at the Blockade Runner for a week's vacation and we absolutely love it! For 35 years, we would visit the Outer Banks for our family vacation and each year, we would become more and more frustrated with the commercialism, traffic, the strong currents, and lack of privacy.

My family and I have returned to the Blockade Runner for the past six summers. It is rather expensive but well worth the money invested in the fun and enjoyment my family experiences. New optional opportunities have been added with tours of the Wrightsville Beach harbor area and ecological tours.

Older hotel that's been updated in a post modern style and recast as a full feature resort experience. Free valet parking, awesome private beach, indoor/outdoor pool with full service pool side bar. Across the street on sound side is sailboat and paddle board rental on private dock. Great, friendly staff. Cool place. Check it out. You won't be disappointed.

This is a pretty unique hotel. We had a lagoon view on the highest floor and it was a superb view of the the sunset. The breakfast was fantastic, not your usual "free breakfast" fare. There was a huge selection and the tables outside are lovely. Kids loved the pool and the beach was right out back. It's a short... More

checked in, crashed, left next day, hard to give an accurate assessment - this may be unfair - but - way overpriced - i guess it can be demanded since it is a beach property. it's nice having a thermostat but the incessant blowing of air made a good nights sleep difficult.

Very nice place. Friendly staff and very clean rooms. Complimentary breakfast was very good. Wifi in our room didn't work well, or at all. Had to use personal data the whole week but that's just a small issue. Other than that, very nice resort and would recommend to anyone. Loved the open area outside and all th activities that were...

very nice family trip to celebrate my daughter's birthday - great refit of the property and very nice décor, not your average furniture and ambience....nice to not be cookie cutter hotel! I would definitely plan another trip and would recommend to other families.

Great beach area! Limited parking in area but staff very helpful. Late night staff could have given butter information on wrist bands & complementary breakfast with rooms. Great that they provide towels for both pool & beach. Be sure to use sunscreen even when overcast - we got sunburns even with overcast skies.

We had a very nice three day getaway. Great location, walking distance to good restaurants. Beautiful beach access and amenities. The hotel grounds have pretty landscaping with open grassy areas to play in. My husband and son went on a fun fishing trip set up through the hotel. They offer a wonderful breakfast buffet each morning. We also enjoyed lunch... More
