Blockade Runner Beach Resort
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 29, 2007

The Blockade Runner is out of paradise. We arrived early and decided to head out to the beach to take advantage of the 80 degree weather in March. The hotel lobby is an open air, appeared to be recently remodeled. The grounds on the way to the beach are very resort-like. Check in was complete in just a few minutes with no problems. Our room key did not work at first attempt, but a member of staff came up promptly to check out the situation. Upon entering the room, the sliding door had been left open allowing the ocean breezes to fill the room. It was simply amazing. The room was extra clean. The room had obviously been recently renovated. The shower was amazing as well with a window so you could actually see the ocean from the shower.....we thought we were in the tropics. The hotel is in a great location near local restaurants and not far from Downtown Wilmington. Check out was a snap and we were on our way. I would definitely choose the Blockade Runner again. Rates are reasonable and clean rooms.

We stayed here for a wedding in November and were very impressed with the bridal suite, except for the sunrise at 6 a.m. over the Atlantic. They should have blackout shades, but don't. My family members stayed in the cottage and wouldn't recommend it. It is dirty and they had to call 3 times to get the heater fixed. Staff is incompetent, especially valet. My family owns a home here, so this was my only hotel experience there. South Beach Grill is one of my favorite seafood restaurants in the world. Not fancy, but fresh and delicious.
