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!

We enjoyed a fabulous weekend at Blockade Runner. The rooms were comfortable and the staff was top notch. The property is well-located right on the ocean, within easy walking distance of shops, bars and restaurants. The buffet breakfast is terrific and a lovely start to the day!

My first time at Wrightsville Beach, Blockade Runner has the perfect location. Great friendly staff. The only issue was that the beds and pillows are not very comfortable. But I would go back, it's that nice!

We have stayed at the Blockade Runner 3 times now and we always have a good time. The food is excellent and the bartenders are awesome. It's a great location and not far from shopping or downtown Wilmington.
