An amazing adventure with the love of my life, my first time staying in this hotel...heart shaped hot tub, doors open, and the smell of the ocean with the seagulls makes it all worth a romantic type trip...

Schooner inn is a vintage original hotel at the very end of the south side of the beach. One of a kind places to visit. The rooms are not expensive. I get a room with a hot tub and it is as if I was in a dream. Warm weather, the patio door open, hearing the waves as I relax... More

The first time my husband and I stayed here it was the night we got married. It was great, generally quiet which for a saturday night on 'the strip' is amazing. We got a King size room with the whirlpool tub which was awesome after a long day. The balconies overlook a section of beach that is for surfer so... More

As a close-by getaway (only a half hour drive from our apartment), we occasionally travel to Schooner Inn. We love the location - right on the ocean and the lower end of the tourist area and away from most of the noise and beach action, which is what we like. The room was equipped with a kitchenette, place settings and... More

The most important thing I can say about the Schooner Inn is for people who want to swim or boogie-board. This is the last hotel on the South side of the boardwalk, an area usually reserved for surfers. Thus if you just want to swim or body surf you may need to walk a couple of blocks north up the...

Have stayed here before but this time- it was awful. Paid for an upgraded hot tub room w/ kitchenette and got a tiny microwave and minifridge. The room isn't any bigger; they took the balcony space for the hot tub. :( Sleep quality was horrible. Water running through pipes, the hot tub above me, folks upstairs walking, loud a/c..... there... More

Only one star, because zero is not an option!! We have stayed at this hotel many times & have appreciated the budget friendly price and location, however, this will be our last time. From staff that was less then helpful or friendly upon check in, to a toilet that barely flushed & had water pressure that whistled with each flush,... More

This trip was our girls getaway. We really were very satisfied with our room and the staff was amazing. The only thing we thought the room needed was a good shampooing of the carpet. But we all enjoyed our stay! The girls all want to come back next year. Oh, got to mention the Schooner is at the very south... More

This is the second year in a row that we have stayed here. Excellent rooms with kitchens. Nice balconies overlooking the boardwalk/beach. Swimming pool was nice and warm. Clean rooms, nice housekeeping staff. Older hotel that has been taken care of. Great family or couple vacation.

Will never stay there again! I mean never! I don't blame the front desk they were professional and friendly. It is just that the need to enforce the non... More
