HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 15 January 2017

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...

Hotel was very clean with great ocean views. Breakfast buffet (complimentary) was best hotel breakfast I've had other than a "cook to order" arrangement. Air conditioning in room was not working correctly. Hopefully, that problem will be fixed.

We stayed here Easter weekend. Weather was gorgeous, tho windy. Lots of walking on the beach, even laying in the sun a bit. It was fun to watch all the kids doing an Easter Egg hunt on the grounds, with the Easter Bunny. (There are also at least three resident real bunnies.) The included breakfast was fabulous. Staff was competent....

The setting of this hotel is quite beautiful. Loved the adirondack chairs that are placed outside throughout the property. Besides the wonderful beach and sea Blockade Runner have activities (horseshoes, bean bag throw, etc) that both children and adults can enjoy. I traveled with my grandson for his spring school break to Blockade Runner Beach Resort and we both really...

We stayed in the balcony rooms. It was a nice clean room, adequate size. Service was friendly. Internet connection was awful and there wasn't anything to be done when I called guest service, so if this is important to you, than have an alternative. The food at the hotel was very good. The breakfasts that were complementary was awesome, with...

Can't ask for a better location. The hotel is nicely decorated. Good customer service from the employees, they are all friendly. They struggled with the Easter day crowd. I arrived at 1:30 on Friday and check-in time guarantee is 4pm and the room was ready at 6pm. The buffet is awesome if you go early. If you go late there...

Pros: Great 'free' breakfast (with heavy pressure for a tip billed to your room), clean, nice housekeeping staff, great beach access, established relationship with boat ride vendor conveniently located across the street. Landscaping and flowers are nice features. Con: Preauthorization amount of $50 per night on your credit card whether you like it or not, difficult to pay for services...
