First time being at this hotel and I absolutely loved the room!! I had the kitchenette deluxe room with the double bed and jacuzzi. We also had oceanfront with a breathtaking view, that could also be seen from the jacuzzi. I loved being able to take our groceries and only having to go out for ice or because we wanted to go out on the boardwalk! I would definitely stay here again and had no complaints!

Comfortable Hotel on the boardwalk

Pros: The location to the boardwalk and the beach and the balcony. Best of all was the friendly staff and most welcoming and helpful Manager, Janet!
Cons: Cleaning in the corners and behind the toilet in the bathroom.... maybe we are just finicky about that. Otherwise the room was clean.
Location: Great choices in restaurants, aquatic museums, water park, mini golf and golf course.
We booked the Schooner Inn easily on line with Travelocity for late August. The pictures were exactly what we got. We were treated to a balcony on the second floor overlooking the boardwalk and the ocean. The hotel was the first on the Boardwalk and there was much activity to watch, like walkers, joggers, skaters and bicyclists. We would probably not have picked this week since it was Virginia Beach's annual east coast surfing, extreme skating , boxing and volley ball competitions on the beach. However it was a great vacation.

No frills, great location

Pros: Clean, great location on boardwalk, useful to have fridge, microwave, breakfast table, ice machine nearby, pool, beach playground next to the property
Location: Quieter than other hotels as it's on the southern end of the strip. Short drive to the Virginia Aquarium. Easy walk to all of the resort stores, etc.
Nice seaside motel. This is not a luxury hotel by any means, but the place was very clean and had absolutely everything we needed. The cleaning staff was especially friendly and nice. Location is great as it's directly on the boardwalk/beach and also on the southern end of the resort strip, meaning that it's quieter than some of the hotels just a few blocks away that have to contend with loud live music and crowds. Perfect for the kids (early elementary age) as it's next to a nice beach playground. They also loved the pool.

Travelocity let us book a room too small

Pros: The location was good and the kitchenette was what we wanted. We picked it for the price,ocean front and kitchenette which we liked.
Cons: The air conditioning could not keep up during the heat of the day.
Location: ocean front, shopping, restaurants, bands in the evening.
We booked a room with 2 double beds. The occupancy was listed for 6 people. When we arrived, I called the office for a roll away only to be told that they don't have any. The occupancy is listed at 6 for "fire safety" and not how many people can be accommodated. Clearly, this has happened in the past. The man in the office was very apologetic and sent up extra blankets and pillows to make shift a bed. We never should have been able to book this room.

No smoking on balconies

I get it, no smoking in the rooms but they wouldn't even let us smoke off our private balcony. I even called to ask as long as we threw our butts away and they said no. We spent a huge amount of money for not that great of a hotel. The elevators felt as if they were going to break at any minute. The maid service wasn't great; half of the time they cleaned our room we didn't get what we needed (no toilet paper roll refills, not enough clean towels.) Our actual toilet was off balance. This hotel is at the very end of the boardwalk, right near the surfing side of the beach so we had to walk down to the swimming side. The walls were very thin, you could pretty much hear everything from everywhere. The air conditioner seemed to not work; I had it set to around 68/69 and the room stayed a constant 74. The TV service was bad towards the end, the channels kept cutting out and going static-y.

The hotel was nice and clean. The room had a nice view of the beach, it was quiet and enjoyable. Loved that the room had a kitchenette and iron.

One of the best places I've stayed. During my entire 9 day stay, the staff is courteous, helpful and friendly.

Decent room but nothing extraordinary.

Pros: Free Internet
The room was okay but a bit dated. The air conditioning in the room would never cool below 74 degrees. It got up in to 80's while in the room. The hotel staff said it was because the thermostat was controlled by a motion sensor. The lowest the temperature ever got in our room was 74 degrees. The room was very clean and was a nice location on the beach. The lady when we checked in on sunday afternoon wasn't very friendly. I don't think I will stay here again.
