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.

The location makes it easy to walk to nice restaurants, the views from the rooms are beautiful. We like staying on the harbor side. Wrightsville beach is great for swimming, paddle boarding, bird watching and walking.

Me and my fiancé wanted a little getaway. And we found this gem. We loved everything about the place. We will definitely be back again. Everyone who worked there was very nice and courteous. Even the breakfast buffet was exceptional!

We've been coming to the Blockade Runner for 30 years...and my wife's family for decades before us. The building is old but well maintained. Tons of character. The grounds are very well manicured and you can't beat the beach access. Love the pool and the pool bar. Free breakfast buffet is very good too. Located on the southern end of...
