Recent guest reviews

I truly enjoyed the beach access and ease of access, we appreciated the full-size beach towels. The room was beautiful and had a nice view. However, the pool/hot tub area seemed pretty run-down in comparison with the rest of the facility. A pressure-washing and some fresh paint could go a long way.

The grounds are beautiful and easy access to the beach. Downtown Wrightsville is a short walk so you don’t need to worry about using an Uber or taxi for your nightlife.

The building itself is dated and needs upgrading but the grounds are beautiful

Hotel is severely outdated. Faucet didn’t work well in our room. Pool was okay but sauna had plastic over the entrance, looked like a crime scene. Gym was steamy and gross. No snack shop to grab coffee or snacks. Valets were rude. Overall disappointing for a “beach resort.”

Professional, friendly service. A very nice place to relax. Many things to do like kayaking and sailing.Very nice gardens. Will return again and again.

Overpriced! Beautiful grounds, but the rooms are just so-so and breakfast is no longer included in the price of your stay. Not worth the money, in my opinion.

I liked that this property was right on the beach and have pool access.

I loved all the different types of chairs on the property. I was able to look for and find something comfortable each day.

1. Staff was Amazing (Front Desk and Bellmen) 2. Hotel Bed slats were broke and I broke a couple more spent first night on the Floor. (Repaired on Sunday Afternoon - should fix all bed the same as in room 635) 3. Shower head was filthy grungy (Replaced on Sunday Afternoon) 4. The walls were thin and it was very loud 5. the Views were amazing

A generally excellent experience. My only complaint is the beds. They were extremely firm and quite uncomfortable. Other than that, the experience was awesome and, despite the beds, I would definitely stay at the Blockade Runner again.

Great location and beach access, easy to get to shopping and restraunts. Love the convenience of all the amenities and staff were professional and friendly!

The employees in the front disk was so rude and bad service and the room was smell something bad

the food service needs to be improved. we did breakfast buffet and Saturday dinner. the quality of food and service were not up to standards expected at fine resort.

Only was in town one night, but would definitely stay again.

Hotel is old and shows it’s age in the room. Partly renovated. Bathroom is very small and not functional. Beds are hard and heating system very noisy and doesn’t warm the room — our visit was during a really cold night. Overall i would give it 2.5 stars. Don’t plan to return. Way overpriced for the quality of hotel.
