How do they stay in business??? A review of Blockade Runner

My recent visit to The Blockade Runner was my worst hotel experience. There were so many issues I can't possible list them all, but the major highlights were rude concierge, dirty room in need of major renovation, expensive price (for what you are getting), major parking problems, and dirty beach area in front of the hotel. I have previously stayed at the Holiday Inn Sunspree at Wrightsville, and for a comparable price it is much nicer. In the hotel room, there was only one electrical outlet that worked (used for TV and lamp) so there is nowhere to charge cell phones, use hair dryer (except in bathroom), etc. I really am not difficult to please with hotels, but this is hands-down the most overrated place I have every stayed. As an architect, my recommendation is to demolish the place and start over.
