    Great location on the oceanfront, great staff but that is as far as it goes. Check in was a breeze but when we got to the oceanfront room, over half the view was blocked by the older part of the hotel. When requested they moved us. The beds were original to the hotel's 50 year celebration. Hard as a rock and you could feel the springs. The room needs painting and updating. It reminded me of a hotel in Hawaii out of the 80's. The food in the restaurant was overpriced, slowly delivered (1 1/2 hour) , served lukewarm and it was over $100. Certain main menu items were unavailable, the torch for our dessert could not be found and took 30 minutes to deliver. For the price of the room I could've stayed at the Marriott. In the main hotel it appears the room has a balcony but it is just a railing attached to the window, big disappointment. In summary, not going back.

    Not perfect, but still a great stay

    As usual, Blockade was great and because we ended up with great weather for the holiday, our stay on the beach was wonderful. It's a good hotel in a great location. Our bed situation was underwhelming. Two queen beds and one of them was below satisfactory - lumpy and a bit uncomfortable. Service was mixed - the reception and housekeeping are very good. The service at the restaurant has always given us fits and this latest visit was no different. It took many calls and much confusion before our Thanksgiving dinner reservation was set. If i had to guess, there are some communication issues because it was like a repeat performance from our last visit to the restaurant. In the end it was sorted out, but not until we had our share of frustration. Still, we love the Blockade Runner and would come again. We just may rethink whether or not we eat at the East Ocean restaurant again.

    Our second stay and it was better than the first. We had an amazing view, our room was clean, comfy bedding. The grounds are so enjoyable, loved the firepit. Your staff is super friendly and helpful. The Holiday Flotilla launch was a big perk. Thank you! Next time, we'll request a room with balcony. ~ Ed & Bobbi Wooten /Lexington, NC
