This is the place for a family reunion. We have been here six times since 1995. Walk your kayak or paddleboard to the bay. Walk to the beach. Play frisbee or bocce on the grass. Tiki bar. Pool. Everything you need

Friendly and eager to help staff; nice guest room with large balcony in section where we stayed. Very good complimentary breakfast buffet -- not your average continental breakfast! Easy access to beach; chairs and umbrellas available.

We had a relaxing time during our stay. The drinks were great and the beach was beautiful and not crowded. The wait staff was always excellent. The only issue was that the pillows were not comfortable.

Can't beat the location of this hotel in the heart of Wrightsville beach where you can walk to restaurants and shops. This is a great location to visit with kids since rooms, restaurant, pool and beach are all within a few steps.

We showed up to the hotel to find out they gave us a complimentary oceanside view. There was a lightening storm going on which kept us inside but it was perfect because we got to watch the storm over the ocean in the romantic soom setting. I loved it!

The Blockade Runner was ok for a short stay in Wrightsville Beach. The room was very warm, and the beds were uncomfortable making the night sleep very difficult. The entire family had fun in the ocean and playing in the pool. The breakfast buffet was good.

Nothing was too much for the staff who were helpful to the extreme. The room was perfect and the facilities were tremendous offering a mixture of sedate and active options. The food was very good, especially breakfast! There is complimentary shuttle service but it's radius a little small to take and return guests to local restaurants. The hire of beds...

Would visit again. Enjoyable and relaxing. Post or have front desk tell about the activities happening each day of your stay. We did not hear about complimentary cruise until in elevator from another visitor. It was too late then.

I travel for work and stay in hotels over 150 nights per year. This was my worst experience I have ever been a part of and witnessed with other guests. The management needs better training on customer service. The nicest experience was the pleasurable young men parking cars. Recommendation: switch your managers to parking cars and bring in the valet...
