My wife and I along w/ our 8 yr old daughter recently stayed at the Schooner Inn this past week/weekend. We chose the Schooner after canceling reservations at another facility that was charging 2x the amount we paid here for the same things. Yes the Schooner is a bit dated, but for what we needed it for (sleeping, making a... More

I'm hesitant to write this review, because I don't want them to use it as a basic to jack-up their costs. With one day's notice, Schooner Inn was the cheapest hotel ANYWHERE (water front or otherwise) in Virginia Beach by $20 VB-wide, and by over $100 on the water. Despite it's lower cost ($159 on a weeknight for a King... More

Stayed for two nights, ocean front. Booked through Priceline and got a great deal. Room was clean, kitchenette new. Granite and every utensil or cookware you might need. Yes rooms are a bit dated, but having a ocean front room for a great price makes up for it. Front desk staff were cheerful, and accepted request to be on a... More

Stayed July 9th-13th. Nice oceanfront room on the fifth floor. Clean upon arrival and cleaned daily by housekeeping. A/C worked fine. Staff always pleasant with good restaurant recommendations. First hotel on the beach next to Rudee Inlet...the quiet section. Excellent restaurants within walking distance. Bike rentals in hotel parking lot. Very close (walking distance) to fishing boats, tour boats, jet... More

Checked in on Monday and out on Thursday. Housekeeping never cleaned our room. They came Wednesday at 3pm to make the beds. We had to take our own garbage out. The fridge wasn't working right & we lost all of our food because it spoiled. A room with 3 double beds and a table only with 2 chairs. No where... More

Do not stay at this hotel. The check in help (Lee) is a customer service disaster. From her body language, demeanor and attitude it sets the tone for a horrible experience. Check in EXTREMELY difficult, room never reached below 75 degrees on 90plus degree days. Did not have water for several hours. They were reported to the health department.

My family and I stayed here for our vacation to the beach. I booked this hotel for only 2 nights. Yesterday I just had to book for one more night. The room is just right for us, the jacuzzi is a plus. We are having so much fun. We are right on the beach. Parking is a breeze. Will be... More

I liked this hotel. The room was not very modern, but was still nice, and we had all we needed. We got an ocean view jacuzzi room. It's a nice quieter area of the beach right next to a little park. The room was really nice considering price. There was a little balcony, not big, but a perfect spot to... More

I am so glad I picked this place. You cannot beat the price! The other places on the beach are double the price. We walked right out onto the boardwalk and sand. There is also a fantastic view from the hot tub. Check-in and out were both fast and easy. The room isn't as current as some but it was... More

Checked in for one night. Seems like mostly families here. Nothing special but nothing wrong with it either. Everything works. Room is clean ane fairly modern. The only thing I can warn you about is VA Beach is noisy. Military helicopters circled here last night for 15 minutes. Very loud. Last time I was here city maintenance tractors ran up... More
