The ocean-view of our room was beautiful. The only problem we had was that the bed comforter was inside of the closet and we didn't realize until we left! Not sure why it wasn't on the bed. It was a little chilly in March... otherwise, excellent service and the breakfast buffet was awesome.

Lunch only but a very good one. A group of ladies from a club in town selected this as a choice for lunch. The property is older but amazingly well maintained and the location is divine. The day was sunny and warm and about 50+ of us dined outside on the patio. Lovely furnishings, professional staff and great service.

Since we were a group, they gave us three choices: salmon with pesto, marinated steak with sweet pepper sauce and lime glazed chicken. We all enjoyed our entrees plus the salad and light dressing were perfect.

Not sure how the main restaurant performs and when they serve meals as it may not be available for lunch during the off season, but the quality of the food, service and ambiance (plus very clean) made this a very good choice. Were I having guests in town, I would not hesitate to recommend the facility.

Towels were extremely hard. Pillows were uncomfortable. HVAC was noisy (could barely hear tv) & cold (outside temps in 40-50s). Notified front desk that tray on the floor in hallway needed to be moved on my way to breakfast-at checkout smelly tray was still there. Great that it is right on the beach. Hotel restaurant food not that great, but waitstaff was very friendly at dinner & breakfast.

Redone rooms,modern baths. Hotel restraunt had nice assortment of choices for both lunch and dinner.The most variety for a breakfast buffet we have seen. We were there for a fund raiser and were surprised at the effort the hotel delivered to make the 3 day affair a success.

Room Tip: Sound side and ocean side are equally nice

My husband and I recently stayed at the Blockade Runner and had a wonderful time. The beds were comfortable and the room had a fantastic view. The only negative was the breakfast buffet. The sausage patties were hard, the potatoes were rubbery and the muffins still felt frozen. The food was great in the evening (had dinner at the hotel on Saturday night). Will absolutely stay again!
