The hotel is at the south end of the boardwalk, but the rooms are designed so that you get a great ocean view, a door and a patio that we kept open all night to hear the sound of the waves crashing on the shore. There was a little kitchen in our room and a wonderful hot top by the...

No, its not like the advertised picture, but it is a very nice room/hotel for the price. My wife and I are here on our honeymoon and since we are just average working class folks we were excited to discover this place. The staff has been very nice and the view is just incredible and you can sit in the...

The weather is warm enough to enjoy the beach and the room was cool enough to be comfortable concerning the A/C issues described previously. Linens were old but they were clean. Pillows are flat but still work! We had a 6th floor, ocean front, double bed room for 2 friends traveling together. We didn't have a jacuzzi but in place...

Don't be fooled with this place, it isn't what the pictures make you think it is. We made a reservation online and in the end we never even saw the room. We specifically reserved a room with a full kitchenette as our children have a lot of allergies and we need to cook for them, but as soon as we...

We took a last minute mid-week trip to VA Beach this week and we landed at the Schooner. Since it's the end of September, it wasn't very busy at all, and we were able to get an oceanfront hot tub room on the 5th floor. We arrived a little early, around 3:20, and we were able to check in before...

The outside of the Schooner is dated and it is a smaller hotel. But the inside is decorated nicely and very clean! It is priced perfectly and it is quiet on the south end. The heart shaped "hot tub" is just a jaccuzi tub, but it is ocean front with beautiful views! My husband and I enjoyed our stay very...

I have to admit I was a little skeptical about this hotel when I saw the photos and read several reviews from other guests. But not all the reviews were bad, so I decided to take a chance and booked with Schooner Inn anyway. My family and I stayed the last week of June. I am SO GLAD we did!!!...

When I booked online the pictures showed a very nice hotel on the beach. This was the place for my wife and I to spend our 1st year anniversary and I was horrified when we pulled into the parking lot and it looked so old, and outdated. The decor is looks to be from the 70's and all of the...

All of the hotels on the boardwalk look great and then you come to the Schooner. Rooms are very small and beds are only a double. View was great and staff was very friendly. Hotel needs painted and updated.
