If you are going to stay in a hotel at Wrightsville beach, my opinion is that this is by far the best option. The beds are very comfortable (insanely soft sheets and great pillows), the rooms were clean and the A/C worked well, the beach and umbrella chair rentals are way better than other places since they are lounge chairs,...

Enjoyable stay. Perfect location and really nice beach. Beautiful grounds. Could use some work on the hotel exterior. Some areas are updated and some are in need of updating. Breakfast was really good. Dinner was okay, but the dining room was very nice and the live guitar music was great. Food prices were reasonable, but drink prices were ridiculous. Staff...

Great place to stay, right on the beach. Decorated with lots of charm. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Could not have picked a better place to stay. Breakfast buffet is delicious. I would recommend this resort to anyone traveling to Wrightsville. We only wish we could have stayed longer.

The Blickade Runner is an older facility, well-maintained and full of charm. The staff is warm and friendly. The view from our room was beautiful. My husband and I stayed oceanfront without a balcony and both agreed we like our setup better than sitting outside.

This was one of the most excellent experiences that I've had with a hotel. It was a perfect location for the kind of vacation we wanted! Staff was superb - so friendly and helpful.
