We have stayed at the Blockade Runner twice and the rooms are spacious and well appointed. Both times we have had trouble with the reservations web site which averages nightly prices and is not responsive to changes. The price on the room seemed reasonable, but the reservations agent never ever mentioned that some of the rooms have tubs and some showers only. I did not think to ask because the web site description never mentions this major difference. It describes different bed sizes and views, but not this critical point, which seems increasingly to be an issue as hotels remodel and find showers cheaper and more ADA compliant. When we checked in, we were given a noisy room, near a screaming baby and asked to move. We were given a second room and neither one had a tub. And none were available because the hotel was pretty well booked. So if this matters to you, ASK IN ADVANCE. The breakfast was included in the price and was so so in terms of quality and convenient. They are located on the beach but charge to rent beach chairs. That seems a bit chintzy.
