We made our first off-season trip during Thanksgiving week and what a bargain! We actually paid more to board our puppy while we were gone than for our 5 days at Schooner, and it was great! We had the ocean/beach right outside and the excellent Xmas Light Show on the Virginia Beach Boardwalk just below our balcony. The lights were... More

I have reviewed Schooner Inn before, and this is an update. My wife and I retired to Virginia Beach several years ago and located Schooner Inn as a quiet retreat close by. The hotel is somewhat dated; however, for that minor negative, it compensates for by location - right on the beach and, more importantly, away from all of the... More

Although the room was crummy, bed was bad and bathroom was yucky, the shower was wonderful and the view of the Atlantic Ocean was terrific!!! This is a minimalist hotel with no restaurant or other services. There was FREE WIFI!!!!!

Currently here- clean, family owned hotel. Staying in room 523- ocean view, 2 double beds, micro/fridge w/ sink, balcony, hot tub. Excellent location, great rate, customer service makes this THE place to stay at Virginia Beach. Only issue was I could hear the neighbors TV late at night..... so just be aware of this possibility.

Stayed here one night April 29th 2012. I booked the king room with the hot tub, very nice for couples especially in combination with the ocean view. Close to many beach-ambient attractions and restaurants.

We flew into Norfolk, on our way up the Eastern Shore. Decided to stay one night in Virginia Beach, before we left Florida. The Schooner is an older property, way at the south end of V. beach. Nothing fancy here, but that's ok. The room was comfortable, ah But, the view was GREAT, and we had a Heart shaped hot... More

We have family in the area but prefer to stay on the beach. This place is at last hotel before Rudee's Inlet so you have a great view to the south with no obstructions. We were on the 6th floor and the view was spectacular. Service at the front desk was great - Lee was awesome! The room had a... More

We stayed 3 nights. First visit. Our 1st night was the Sunday of Labor Day weekend, and all the hotels were booked due to the holiday and a big Music Festival on the beach Sunday. The office folks were very welcoming. We had a reservation, but I overheard a family who's dates were mixed up for their stay, and the... More

We stayed on the top floor with an ocean front view. The room was very spacious and the view was great! The town was a little dead due to the season being about over, but the room was a great place to relax and enjoy the ocean view and the sound of the waves. I'm really please with our decision...

The location of the Schooner Inn at the end of the boardwalk makes it ideal for zipping off to Back Bay National Refuge. We've stayed here several times but this is the first time we took another person - a 4 year old friend who was thrilled with everything about it. We stayed in the least expensive room for 2...
