Nice little resort, clean, very comfortable beds, great proximity to the beach, beautiful gardens with activities for the kids. We loved the access to boating activities on the marine. Quality of food in the restaurant for lunch and dinners was very, very good. Only negative is that the exterior of the resort is very tired-looking, dated and in disrepair. The...

The room had a strange odor. Thermostat didn't seem to control the temperature very well. Water pressure in sink was low. Valet service was mediocre. The view and breakfast were outstanding. Décor is a bit outdated.

This was our first visit to the Blockade Runner and will definitely not be our last. It was an exceptional experience from the moment we walked in the door. The rooms are nice and spacious, the grounds are beautiful and the staff is beyond compare. It was so nice to have beach towels supplied and the ability to rent beach...

We had two couples and our families and enjoyed the facilities and the beach. The staff was very friendly and helpful with anything we needed. The proximity to the rest of Wrightsville makes this a perfect spot to stay for families.

It was decent for a weekend getaway. The Hotel experienced a lot of maintenance issues while we were there that could have been communicated better to the guests--no water, no ac. It is a great location and good beach access. Nice staff that worked the beach area and shuttle.

This is a nice resort, considering the age. The staff members are young and outgoing. The resort is a little pricy, but when coupled with a pool and private beach access, along with some excursions tend to make you forget how expensive a weekend trip could be.

Parts of the resort are very old and in need of repair while other parts were very nice. The food at the pool-side bar was very expensive and below average in quality. There are a few very good places to eat within a 10 minute walk of the resort where you will get much better food for a fraction of...
