First time to blockade and it was unfortunately for business and one night.. great resort feel with palm trees and nice access to beach. Complimentary breakfast is a nice touch. Can't wait to bring the family in spring/summer

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...

Loved this Hotel -- have told everyone about staying right on the ocean in such a beautiful room w/balcony. We want to come back for a couple days. Seeing the sunrise over the ocean in the comfort of our room was awesome. Room service was fast and yummy. Really wanted to stay for more than one night but warmer temps...

This was our first stay at the Blockade Runner, and it couldn't have been more delightful. Our room was clean, comfortable, and the entire facility was beautifully decorated. The buffet breakfast outshined our expectations. To a person, each employee was friendly, courteous, and helpful. We would love to go back when the weather is a little warmer so we can...

This was our first trip to Wrightsville Beach. It is a very beautiful island and your motel is situated in a perfect location. Your staff was very accommodating and friendly and always willing to help. The sunrises were amazing.

Great location, had oceanfront room with great view of ocean and grounds from balcony. Folks are friendly, property is in good shape, free parking and breakfast are great to have. We even saw dolphins in the surf every day. Peaceful grounds (mostly, see below), very relaxing and welcoming place. The property falls down a little on the smaller picture: -...

Although the shoreline view was breathtaking, it was cut off by a shorter 4-story wing jutting out on one side. Fun, colorful decor throughout, but no microwave in the room was a great inconvenience. And the beds should be placed on the opposite wall to view the stunning sunrise!

Can't wait to go back! The rooms and views are wonderful. The food was excellent. The tiramisu martini 🍸 is to die for. Trying to figure out when I can come back.,.......... A lovely stroll on the beach is a great way to start your day!

My husband took me to stay at this hotel for my birthday weekend so I could be near the ocean in Wilmington. I wanted to give the hotel 4.5 stars but it's not an option. Everything about our stay was fantastic except the noise level. Despite being off-season and winter, and the hotel not appearing to be full, we had...
