Blockade Runner Beach Resort

275 Waynick Blvd., Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina, 28480, USA

When you pull up to the parking lot at the seven-story, 1960s-vintage Blockade Runner, your first impression may be "meh," but once inside you'll find one of the area's classier beachfront hotels. There are large, recently renovated rooms, and those on the upper floors have great beach and ocean views. Service is efficient and friendly, and there's a surprisingly good restaurant (hot breakfast buffet included in most rates), an outdoor pool, and a nice stretch of beach right in front of the hotel. The Blockade Runner also offers a two-story beach cottage for rent to families and groups, with 13 bedrooms and nine baths, and access to all the hotel amenities.
