“Ocean sunrise and harbor sunset views, picturesque garden, romantic lounge chairs...”
Reviewed 15 April 2014 via mobile

Most important in any business now is service and the Blockade Runner's staff excel in professionalism, friendliness, efficiency, and hospitality! The decor in their new lobby and their pool patio is very inviting and comfortable. The canopied double wicker couches circled in groups of four amidst the colorful garden and tables on the pool decks near the long outdoor bar create a natural socializing area. Nestled between the ocean with a very long stretch of beach and the harbor with another beach and lawn area, we had a choice of flowing waves or calm waters and a view of sunrise and sunset. The complimentary breakfast far surpassed expectations! The rooms were spacious and clean. This wonderfully aesthetic and social treasure that we discovered as a 1 night rest spot on the way to Myrtle Beach will be a future destination...and we'll bring many of our friends!

Whether you have the ocean view and the glorious sunrise or the bay view and the sunset, there are no rooms without spectacular seaside views. I was most impressed with the lawn between the hotel and beach where kids were having a great time playing. A hot buffet breakfast is included which is an added bonus. I would definitely stay here again!

I booked 7 rooms for a sorority reunion, and was very pleased with the accommodations, friendly service, free breakfast, and dinner at the restaurant. It's hard to please 13 women, but all had good things to say about your hotel and staff. Thanks!

Room Tip: Deluxe Oceanfront rooms on upper floors were great. Large sliding glass doors allowed us to listen...

Have stayed here several times and the hotel is nice...nice breakfast, etc. I called to make a reservation for early May because we are having a HUGE wedding there next year and wanted to check them out for booking about 50 rooms! There was NO discount given, and actually the price was higher than advertised online... a HUGE ripoff. Such a shame when they had such potential for renting out a LOT of rooms at off season. There are better properties on the beach!

Room Tip: Waaaaaaaaaaaay overpriced...look elsewhere!

I have stayed here several times and have always been pleased. The decor is very nice, and for an older hotel it is well maintained. Great location and staff. Restaurant is very good also. I plan to visit again...only wish I could visit more often!

Room Tip: I have never had a bad room here. Both ocean and sound rooms have pretty views.

My wife and I stayed here on a one-nighter when we went to Wilimington for a Bela Fleck concert UNCW. I asked some friends where to stay. Got a good deal on price (BOOK ONLINE!). Got there late and so just ate in the hotel restaurant. The meal and the service were SUPERB. Salad, fantastic Salmon, dessert. Very reasonable price. The rooms were clean and bath likewise. Tiled floors so no musty carpet smells. The staff were cheery, helpful, competent, and extremely friendly. Breakfast in the morning (included on the tab) was great. Full blown buffet with ripe fruit, all the bacon and egg or pancake or yogurt or literally ANYTHING. Food was great. They even had good coffee!

We will definitely be back.

Wish someone had told us when we booked that it was "maintenance season" loved listening to the power washer and construction instead of the ocean!!! And no housekeeping unless requested, since when??? Never been charge $100 upfront just in case we used the hotel restaurant, I've never even heard of that!!! Very unsatisfied!
