When we arrived, we noticed that parking was really right. You can use valet or park yourself. We opted to park our own car since the lot is very close to the front door. Decor in the lobby is trendy and although the staff was nice, they were not helpful. Our room was not ready upon check in. We were...

If you love to swim in the ocean this is the best swimming spot I have seen between there and fort fisher. But the hotel is way over priced for the area. Not much around. And everything cost a fortune at this hotel..my burger was 15.00 . I'm not a smoker but my mother is and the places to smoke...

Everything was fine overall, but they definitely could have been more accommodating with our issue of being unable to sleep because of an uncomfortable bed. We had a choice of a $125 early departure fee or having to pack all of our things (we have a two year old) and move to another room. I felt that this was unacceptable.

Just returned from a wonderful visit to the Blockade Runner. We had an oceanfront balcony room. Very spacious and the view was perfect. An excellent breakfast is included. Along with the usual buffet items, the fruit bar was greatly appreciated. Staff was attentive to every need. A great, relaxing visit.

Good experience-very family friendly. We felt comfortable letting our son roam around the resort on his own. Food is amazing, but pricey. Drinks are very overpriced-2 12oz. can beer was $12! Staff is very friendly and helpful. There are rules about drinking at the beach, but most people did it anyways with no worries-as long as you are being respectful.Overall...

We spent 5 days on vacation at this resort. This has easy walk out access to the beach and is one of only a handful of places to stay if you don't want to have to fool around with driving to go the beach and trying g to find a place to park. Price may seem high to some folks,...
