After 20 years of dreaming about going to Wilmington and Wrightsville Beach ( after watching Dawson's Creek and Nicholas Sparks movies) I finally dared to hire a car in the USA and stayed 4 nights in this beautiful Resort. I booked myself one of their premier Atlantic state rooms and my oh my, dreams came through. Wrightsville Beach itself was...

This is an amazing getaway location for a summer trip or year round vacation! The employees are fabulous and always makes you feel welcome as soon as you step foot in the door. The resort is clean with a lot to offer their guests such as a beautiful outside pool right along the beach! The owner however, needs to go....

Miles of sand and the open Atlantic stretch to the north and south. Lots of outdoor spaces to work or relax in all types of weather. The one drawback is food service disappears entirely after 9 in the evening.

Was just there for 2 nights with another couple. Had stopped by and checked the place out back in December in preparation for our trip and we all left happy! Staff great, rooms very comfortable. We all stayed in oceanside rooms with balconies. Loved the sights and sounds. Allowed us to keep the sliding door on the balcony open all...

A one night business trip turned into a "I want to come back". The recent up fits & design changes have turned this into a Beach Boutique from a Beach Motel. If you have been here before & was disappointed you should give it another try. Best location on the beach & now the amenities & decor equal the location.

We stayed here for our honeymoon and it was AWESOME! The hotel is in a amazing location, harbor on the front with the sunset and ocean on the back with the sunrise. It's also decorated beautifully and has wonderful gardens to lounge or play games in. The restaurant at the hotel has delicious food and many vegetarian options (a big...

So much to say! A friend recommended the blockade...and from reviews and pictures it's looked lovely! Too bad it did not live up to expectations. 1) this hotel is OLD. It's renovations are piecemeal. The lobby is wonderful but the rooms are graded. The bathroom lacks amenities. There is no tub in a king upscale room. You have to request...

My husband and I stayed at the Blockade Runner over Valentines Day Weekend and had summer like weather, with winter pricing! Our room was oceanfront and had the most gorgeous view of the Atlantic.

To say brunch is a far cry. No egg station. No "br"eakfast anything except for some quiche. When we walked into the room where the food was I said to husband "is this it?" If you like shrimp and clams you should like it. For us it was very disappointing especially for the price of $48 each. The best part...
