We have wanted to stay at the Blockade Runner for many years now. Our visit certainly exceeded our expectations. We could not have been more pleased with everything!

We had a great view of the Harbor. Enjoyed very much. Ocean front room pricing was above our budget. The Harbor view room was somewhat above, but considering the great buffet breakfast included, we accepted. Thank you for a great stay to celebrate our 42nd Anniversary.

We love staying there. Wonderful retro hotel right on the beach. Great breakfast, excellent staff, great location. Wifi is slow, and on our most recent stay our room's bathroom door was warped so it couldn't close properly. One elevator was out for most of our 2 day stay, so getting up and down was difficult.

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... More
