Overall, we had a very good experience. We have had multiple stays at the Blockade Runner and we are always satisfied. The facilities are good and the staff is very accommodating. We thoroughly enjoyed the pool and beach during our stay.

Everything was really nice as should be for the price you pay for it . Shouldn't charge for chairs n umbrellas for beach n should give food voucher for lunch or dinner to go with free breakfast But overall was really nice there .☀️😀

This is a great location with a fantastic view of the Ocean (or the Harbor). As a couple without children, it might not be the perfect choice during the busy season (summer) because it is definitely more family oriented. In September, though, it is absolutely perfect for couples who want a quiet retreat to an affordable location.

This was our first time here,we were very happy with the room ,service and overall experience. When I can go to the beach for a 3 day vacation and not have to get in my car once I feel as though I hit the jackpot.

we had a harbor side room this time and the view is worth it. The food was above par so we ended up eating there a couple times. The rooms were clean and the service staff was very attentive and friendly.

I booked a night at the Blockade Runner for one night based on the reviews on tripadvisor. The front of the resort doesn't do it justice as the building is a little dated and the parking lot is full of cars. We arrived early and our room wasn't ready so we drove to Wilmington and the hotel called us when...

Rooms are too small for more than 2 people, esp if staying over a night or two. The food & adult beverages were good but ENTIRELY overpriced, especially the alcohol. Other than that, we had a very enjoyable stay. Staff is friendly and accommodating, for the most part.

The Blockade Runner is our favorite beach getaway. The staff is always welcoming and smiling. We had sound side room and loved opening our window and watching the sunset. The bartenders at the pool bar are great and the drinks are delicious!

Arrived for a two night stay with my parents. The hotel was lovely! All of the staff were extremely friendly and the hotel decor was very nice. Brunch every morning was fantastic; large assortment of foods in a nice room facing the ocean. Prime beach location. Would highly recommend!

Very well staffed facility. A little dated but very clean, wide open. The grounds are beautiful and well kept. The staff from parking to the beach were excellent! I called the front desk for towels and ice and they were there in minuets. I will be back again at the Blockade Runner.
