very nice family trip to celebrate my daughter's birthday - great refit of the property and very nice décor, not your average furniture and ambience....nice to not be cookie cutter hotel! I would definitely plan another trip and would recommend to other families.

Great beach area! Limited parking in area but staff very helpful. Late night staff could have given butter information on wrist bands & complementary breakfast with rooms. Great that they provide towels for both pool & beach. Be sure to use sunscreen even when overcast - we got sunburns even with overcast skies.

We had a very nice three day getaway. Great location, walking distance to good restaurants. Beautiful beach access and amenities. The hotel grounds have pretty landscaping with open grassy areas to play in. My husband and son went on a fun fishing trip set up through the hotel. They offer a wonderful breakfast buffet each morning. We also enjoyed lunch...

Blockade Runner is average at best, even though they have tried several times to update this hotel. They do have the best location in Wrightsville and an awesome beach location, which is the reason why I gave them a very good rating. They have to work on their bones, because hotel is older and needs attention. The changes they have...

I was in Writesville for a conference and only had the opportunity to stay one night. It was a really good stay with every employee doing a fantastic job, but the bartender on Tuesday night (I want to say her name as Lindsey) did a fantastic job.

My family booked this hotel for our family reunion. This has been the dirtiest hotel we have ever stayed in, it started with the fishy smell in the lobby. The lobby looks modern, but smells. We had a terrible time checking in. The young lady at counter told us she needed hold $50 for incidentals and charged our card $800!...

We had a wonderful relaxing vacation here. The staff is so warm and welcoming. I loved the pussycat Gracie - who did yoga with me in the morning. Excellent trip the only negative I can think of is there is no water pressure in the shower, and they need to build up the sand at the bottom of the stairs...

My husband and I recently stayed for a couple of nights. While the property and the staff were nice, we were disappointed with our room. The main issue was the air conditioning system. It was very loud! Unfortunately, we did not sleep well during our stay and for this reason I would not recommend this resort. One more note, the...

This hotel is in a great location, the staff provided excellent service, food / restaurant service was also very good. There were a couple of things that let the place down, & that didn't fit with the room rate. We found the bed / bedding to be low-quality & uncomfortable, & like other reviewers comment the air conditioning units are...
