“Excellent value on nice efficiency”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2012

My daughter & I stayed for 3 weekday nights last week in room 408. The efficiency room had a huge living / sleeping area:2 queen beds, fullsize eating table, large dresser, flatscreen tv, computer desk, sm. side table @ oceanside window & six table chairs. A fully stocked kitchen w/ larger reduced sized refrigerator was seperated from the living space. The balcony patio was private w/ 2 chairs. The room was very clean and quiet & wifi connection was excellent. I was impressed that the pillows and mattresses were high quality and were dressed with fitted bottom sheets, ample sized top sheets, a soft blanket and new looking tailored top spreads. Many lamps were scattered througout the room and curtains moved easily and closed completely. Even with all the furnishings there was a lot of open floor space. The air/heat system was newer and quiet. The bathroom had been updated nicely but did not have an exhaust fan. Hanging clothes space was limited due to refrigerator taking up half of the closet. The front desk person, Eileen, was a gem. There is a restaurant off of the lobby which we used only for a carryout breakfast which was very good. The entire property is very well maintained. The elevator is extremely small, but it was not a problem for us as we were there mid-week with very liitle traffic at the property. I've tried perhaps a dozen motor inns, resorts and condo rentals over the last 3 years and this is the only North Myrtle Beach area oceanfront one that I feel provides an excellent value for a relaxing stay.

Me and my family and friends stayed here this past weekend for a few nights and this place was just really impressive. Clean, rooms very roomy, beds comfortable, air worked good, the maids were very friendly. Parking was always plentiful. Will definitely stay there again.

I have been going to the Blockade Runner just about every beautiful weekend since last November.

The rooms are beautiful and always clean and no matter which one you pick it will overlook the ocean.

It is couples and family friendly, as my fiance and I use it as a get away for us and other times we bring the family.

It is convenient to anywhere that you want to go.

The rates are unbelievably reasonable and the staff are always very nice.

If anyone ask me where they should stay in N.Myrtle Beach, I always refer them here.

I love this hotel. If I could change one thing it would be the parking situation. As the spring/summer are rolling in and the hotel is booked, it is very difficult to find a parking space but still worth it to stay at this hotel.

Don't judge it from the outside until you actually see the rooms. :)

I hope that everyone enjoys it as much as we do. We are headed there this weekend. :)

Room Tip: I love the top floor... :)

As a lifelong visitor to the Grand Strand, I know what you get for your money and it's not always what you deserve. The Blockade Runner gives you every penny's worth. Attractive and clean oceanfront rooms, attentive staff and good amenities that are consistently well below what other similar hotels charge.

Room Tip: Efficiences available for those desiring cooking facilities.

Very pleased with the Blockade Runner. Clean and a great bargain. Oceanfront. No negatives whatsoever!

Room Tip: Top floor on the ocean = great sunsets!

Stayed here for the first time while attending a family reunion in August. Lovely oceanfront location and comfortable kitchenette room, simple but clean, just what I wanted and a wonderful value. "Locals" restaurant on the first floor was staffed with friendly folks and good southern food, even had liver mush on the menu for us foodies from faraway places! I had other family members staying at a fancy high-rise condo nearby with granite countertops and a price to match, but wasn't beachfront. They laughed at first; however, after visiting they could see the appeal, in fact they came over for breakfast twice. Traveling across the country to Myrtle Beach for the first time in 25 years, this relaxing throwback to a simpler time was exactly what what I was looking for.

My trip was cut short this year due to the arrival of Hurricane Irene! Left for home mid week to await the damages back home. The stay here was a wonderful as each previous year with new little touches here and there. Michael is always smiling and welcoming upon arrival and sad to see us depart early! Love it here!
