We went to the Blockade Runner 10 years ago and really enjoyed it, the breakfast, beach view room, helpful employees and affordable umbrella and chair services on the beach. We want back again this year and we weren't disappointed. The breakfast was still great. I called and asked for a higher floor for better beach views and we were put in the top floor. The staff was really helpful and the affordable umbrella/chair rentals were still there with the staff digging a hole and planting our umbrella and then bringing our chairs just where we wanted them.
An extra kudos to th the hotel. The day we got there a bird had flown into a transformer and the air conditioning was out. They said it would be restored late evening at the earliest. They offered us a similar reservation at two other beachfront hotels, or a free night at the Blockade Runner. As we had been looking forward to coming back to the Blockade Runner we took a chance on staying on. They brought us a fan it wasn't that hot and the air conditioning came back on around 11. We thought this was a really classy way to handle a difficult situation. We will definitely go back next year.
