“Not a bad stay.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012 via mobile

Stuck back in time. Mirrors all around. Rooms were clean. We stayed in the 2 bedroom ocean front even though it was just my husband and myself, because ALL the 1 bedroom are ocienview. The second room had 2 small twin beds. Our room had a queen bed. I wish the master bedroom had a balcony but it did not. There was a small balcony in the living room/den. Carpet needs to be taken out because it was stained from years of wear. The pool was very small and it was only one along with a small hot tub.

Its location is convienient. And while It is certainly not the best looking place around, it is also not the worst. The kitchen is not "user friendly". Don't expect much and it will be alright.

However,

I read in one review that it had a friendly staff. Yes, the front desk was always friendly. But if you are an early risier such as myself, don't go to the lobby on the second floor. That room belongs to housekeeping so they can sit around and talk and laugh and be with each other. I don't know if it was predjudism or what, but they let me know that i wasn't welcome. get your morning coffee at starbucks.

Room Tip: the laundry rooms are on the 8th and 9th floors.

My family stayed here recently. This is one of the cleanest hotels/resorts I've used. Staff is very friendly. We rented an ocean VIEW room, not ocean front, but the view was still beautiful even from the side angle. Very roomy condo and fully stocked, updated kitchen.The only drawback might be the small pool. Parking is tight, but they have a parking lot across the street. The atmosphere is mostly made up of families and couples. Older facility, but very clean and quiet, and still close to the city's excitement. Would highly recommend this place.

The hotel is an older place and doesn't have a lot of fancy decoration, but it has a great location at a quiet end of the beach. The rooms were spacious and beds comfortable, and the staff helpful and friendly. It's walking distance to good places to eat like Sunnyside Cafe, Rockafellas Seafood, and Big Sam's. We'll be back!

My wife has been going to the Schooner II since she was a little girl and the tradition continues with us and our 2 boys going every year.

The place is great for what/where it is; a nice hotel right on the beach that's conducive to families. Let's start w/ the positives:

- LOCATION: Right on the beach, can't beat it. Plus, you're in walking distance of a few great eateries; Dirty Don's, Soho, River City Cafe, Ultimate Pizza. The best is that you're in walking distance of Kirk's Ice Cream Parlor. Love the nutty coconut.

- CONDOS: Recently updated with a nice kitchentte and bunk bed area for kids. We've stayed in both the 1 and 2 bedroom units. Although you can't beat the 2 bedroom view, we actually like the layout of the 1 bedroom w/ bunk bed area better. As with any oceanside property, you're going to get some wear and tear, but for the most part, the units are well maintained.

- STAFF: Incredibly friendly and helpful.

Ok, now a few negatives:

- POOL: This used to be a huge negative for me, but it has gotten better. The pool is way to small. They have recently updated it and tend to keep it cleaner then in years past, but it's too small for the amount of folks they have staying there. We've found ourselves sneaking into other hotel pools. It's not necessarily the Schooner's fault as they just don't have enough land to make a larger one.

- ARRIVING/DEPARTING: As another reviewer mentioned, it's a pain unloading your car. It's very tight up front and there are only 2, very slow elevators. Can't really help that though.

All in all, I highly recommend this place. We'll keep coming back.

Room Tip: The higher you go, the better the view and less noise you get from the pool.

This was our first stay here. The room was clean and spacious. The location of hotel was great. It is close to Broadway at the Beach. The suite had a nice updated kitchen and two bathrooms which is great for a family of 6. I would recommend to friends and plan to stay there again.

My husband and I stayed one week this July. We were on the 4th floor. First impression, difficult to load and unload car. When its busy (check in time) you can barely get on the lot. The first day we noticed that our sink and bathtub backed up. We called down front and they took care of it promptly. Still, really?? There was hair in our tub so I cleaned it myself. I was too embarrassed to call down to the lobby again but I couldnt stand it. I will say that we had our own AC and it worked great. We could crank it down and really get cool, which was nice because we were having a heat wave. Our bed was very comfortable and it was surpisingly quiet at night so we slept well. On Friday an elevator (they have 2) went out so the entire hotel was trying to use the other. We finally gave up and used the stairs. I will say of all the places we have ever stayed this place had the smallest pool. There were several times we wanted to swim and people were packed in there and we just gave up on the idea. We enjoyed our vacation because we have been going to Myrtle for years and we love it but I wouldnt stay here again. Some pros but too many cons for the dollar.

Room Tip: You might want to choose a lower floor. An elevator went out one day we were staying there.
