We had two couples and our families and enjoyed the facilities and the beach. The staff was very friendly and helpful with anything we needed. The proximity to the rest of Wrightsville makes this a perfect spot to stay for families.

It was decent for a weekend getaway. The Hotel experienced a lot of maintenance issues while we were there that could have been communicated better to the guests--no water, no ac. It is a great location and good beach access. Nice staff that worked the beach area and shuttle.

This is a nice resort, considering the age. The staff members are young and outgoing. The resort is a little pricy, but when coupled with a pool and private beach access, along with some excursions tend to make you forget how expensive a weekend trip could be.

Parts of the resort are very old and in need of repair while other parts were very nice. The food at the pool-side bar was very expensive and below average in quality. There are a few very good places to eat within a 10 minute walk of the resort where you will get much better food for a fraction of...

Priced way too high for what is included (pool and towels). Staff very friendly and helpful, but becoming overpriced. Been going here about 10 years and this may be our last due to cost. Breakfast, that is supposed to be their signature is good, but not great and prices at onsite restaurant are outrageous. Everything seems to require a staff...

For the past 4 years, my family and I have stayed at the Blockade Runner for a week's vacation and we absolutely love it! For 35 years, we would visit the Outer Banks for our family vacation and each year, we would become more and more frustrated with the commercialism, traffic, the strong currents, and lack of privacy. A friend...

My family and I have returned to the Blockade Runner for the past six summers. It is rather expensive but well worth the money invested in the fun and enjoyment my family experiences. New optional opportunities have been added with tours of the Wrightsville Beach harbor area and ecological tours.
