Just returned from a lovely, but all too brief, stay at the Blockade Runner in Wrightsville Beach, NC. This is a delightful, moderately sized hotel, with many of the amenities of so-called "resort" properties - some for a fee, but everything one needs for a satisfying beach vacation can be had gratis. The staff were, to a person, gracious, accommodating, and extremely competent. All of my needs were met immediately and satisfactorily. The rooms are newly renovated and very nice. Beautiful views. Exceedingly clean. Outstanding flat-screen TVs and extensive channel selection. The overhead showers (different from any I'd seen before) are great, especially for removing pesky beach sand. The buffet breakfast is more than adequate, and served most graciously. The pool is nice, the grounds lovely, and the beach exquisite. This hotel is a real "sleeper" gem in the semi-off-season, especially if one is lucky enough to arrive during unseasonably good weather, as I did. I had a top-notch beach experience at a high-class establishment, for a thrillingly low off-season special rate. (I can only imagine what the price would be in high season... and my impression of the hotel might be very different if I had to pay it! But that's me; an inveterate value bargain-hunter. :-) )
