A great oceanfront resort for a quiet vacation. The best part of the vacation was the walks on an uncrowded beach twice a day. The food is also excellent, an added incentive for dining in. We have been regular visitors to the Blockade Runner for a number of years and look forward to continuing our visits.

This hotel is one of the few good choices on the oceanfront. Prices are kind of high; there are up-charges for beach chairs, jacuzzi access, etc. Fill up water bottles @ the bar. In room fridge & microwave are helpful. Go left of the hotel to see the sunrise. You may miss it if you just look out of the window of your room, especially if you are on a lower floor. (tip: ask for a higher floor, odd numbers on the ocean side and preferably above x15. Noisy on 2nd floor & no privacy w/ curtains open

We stayed at Blockade Runner for our spring break trip and was very disappointed with the service. We were able to check in early which was nice. The decor and amenities were nice. The hot tub was under maintenance which was a bummer, however the pool was open. The staff were unfriendly and not reliable. We called to get towels multiple times, and each time, they would never bring it up until we called a second time and reminded them. People in the hotel, as well as in the area would stare deep into our souls, as if they have never seen people of color before. Just be aware of that when visiting Wrightsville Beach and this hotel. It made us very uncomfortable as we had to keep our guards up during the whole trip. The only welcoming staff was the young valet-parking worker. He was very nice and engaging with visitors—unlike the others. Overall, the hotel was nice, just not the people. Service definitely needs improvement. Most likely never coming to this beach or hotel again.

Stayed here with my college-aged daughter for a quick week-end away. Great location, the lobby and our room had a fun decor, the grounds were nice, and the place had a laid-back old-school vibe perfect for relaxing. Very friendly valet service and restaurant staff and was pleasantly surprised that both the gym and pool/sauna were open by reservation. My only complaint was the front desk staff - there was only one person there most of the time, but they really needed two to accommodate everyone and they weren't nearly as friendly or helpful as the rest of the staff. Our room wasn't ready until 6:00pm, which really wasn't a huge deal, but they didn't seem too bothered by it and when we did check in, it was rushed and we weren't given any information about the facilities. We took the wrong elevator and couldn't find our room and weren't told anything about breakfast or any of the other available services. (Coffee is free in the hotel restaurant which is a nice touch, but bottled water will set you back nearly $5 with tax!) My sense is they have new staff and are still getting them up to speed after the slow season. Hopefully they will get those kinks out before high season kicks in to seal the experience as top-notch for travelers. I would also add it was tough to get an Uber or Lyft on the island, so if you need one give yourself plenty of time to find a driver.

I was prepared to love this hotel based on reviews and was so disappointed. The big issue was that the temperature in the room was 59 degrees! We called the front desk and someone rang us back to say that we were staying in an old part of the building and since it had been hot out that day (February 27), the heat would not be turned on till 8:00 PM. I have never heard of such a thing in a hotel. Then, once she mentioned that it was an "old" part of the building, I looked around and could see tile coming off the nightstand and gaps under the slider that was not in good shape. The tub didn't drain and oceanfront view was blocked by trees. That and the fact they wanted to charge $35 for a 12:00 check out did not seem right for $200+ room in the off season. Although all of the employees were great, I would suggest trying another hotel in Wrightsville Beach. We will.
