Great place to stay for beach get-away. Easy parking, good breakfast, excellent brunch and fabulous access to the beach. Friendly, helpful staff. Bathrooms could use some updating. Highly recommend the hotel for a beach vacation.

The beach area was really nice and the we liked the chair/umbrella service. The staff really went above and beyond and were very helpful. Lots of great activities for the kids. The pool was very small. The room was pretty nice but the bathrooms need updating/renovating.

Very good facilities and a very relaxing visit for us. Great community around this beach location. There is a great view on both the ocean and the inland waterway view. Each time we stay here it is a very pleasant experience. Very family experience, but "corporate" like many chains.

Great location and friendly staff. There has been a very weak atempt to upgrade interior to no avail. From broken toilet seats to leaking ceilings. For the amount charged the interior should be revamped to make it worth it. Charging $40/day for chairs and umbrellas is tough to understand. Beautiful grounds, great staff.

Ours was a quick, two-night stay, but it was fabulous. Our room was comfortable, breakfast was a feast, and the weather cooperated for a beatiful day at the beach. The staff was so friendly, and immediately on anything we requested. We will be back!

We had a wonderful stay at Blockade Runner! The beach is gorgeous. The restaurant on site was very nice, with live entertainment and a beautiful menu. We ordered the scallops and crab cake. Both were wonderful. The complimentary breakfast buffet is delicious and has tons to choose from. We had a room on the sound side and the sunsets were...

You can't tell from the dated outside, but the inside of this small-medium size hotel looks recently renovated. It has comfortably large rooms with either ocean or causeway view, both of which are beautiful. On the ocean side, there is a large green lawn with white chairs, a decent size bar and a short walkway to the beach. Both interior...

We had an okay stay, but there were numerous issues with our rooms, including: - One of our beds made a loud banging sound when you sit on it. - There were only two electrical outlets in the room and one of them didn't work. - Our bathtub faucet was leaking (the maintenance guy replaced it, he was very professional...

I will keep this review brief because everything was just first class. From arrival to departure our three night stay was excellent in all aspects. The entire staff was very friendly and most helpful. The hotel and the property itself were absolutely gorgeous from the manicured grounds to the beautiful beach and pool area.
