We had a great time at the Blockade Runner! We chose a room on the sound side and were so happy we did. Everything you need is here food drinks, sports. The free breakfast was fantastic. Great rooms, great food, great beach, great time. We will be back.

Some people are thrown by "different", but we loved it all.. And will definitely be back. Staff, food, activities, beach was all well done.. It is pricey, if you go for front with real balcony, but in the end, decided it was worth it!

Internet service was intermittant. Television shows were pixelated. Outside movie canceled due to weather despite available conference rooms. Activities are an expensive extra. Food was excellent and staff are friendly and accomodating. Room was a typical, clean room. Not worth the price.

The Blockade Runner gave us a few relaxing days at the beach. The location is great and the staff is very friendly and service oriented. Breakfast buffet was very satisfying and the pool bar was very refreshing.

This was our third stay at the Blockade Runner. The hotel was full so the staff was stretched a little to handle everything and parking was tight after 9pm. We had a reservation mess up but it was handled OK and we enjoyed our three days. This is a good family resort and you can't go wrong staying here. It...

Took a solo leisure trip to relax and check out the coast of NC for the first time. Although the exterior could use updating and I felt the prices were a bit high, those were basically my only complaints. Even canal view (not ocean view) rooms have an excellent view, breakfast is great, and the beachfront location and surrounding area...

Husband took me here for my birthday. Enjoyed my stay. Hotel is a little old, but nicely decorated. Breakfast buffet was great. Lots of choices and the service staff were friendly. Property was clean and well kept. It was a little cool in April to hang outdoors, but overall a very pleasant stay. Can't wait to visit again.

* When we arrived, we found a single narrow lane into the lot. One valet attendant had a van door open, blocking me from driving past to a parking space. The other attendant asked him to close the door, but for some reason he wouldn't do it. I had to sit there waiting. Once through the blockade, the path to...
