“It is a nice place, we enjoyed our stay.”
Reviewed August 6, 2012

Clean room, it passed the "Black Light Test" for cleanliness. Great location and beach view. The only problem was with the parking but that was because they allowed parking for tourists taking the pirate ship cruise. If you come in after the last cruise, it is not a problem.

The Schooner in was a real bargain! The view was fantastic. The room was clean and comfortable, and having a little mini kitchen with microwave, refrigerator etc was really nice. Everyone on the staff was very nice and helpful, from getting us checked in to a good room, to allowing a little later checkout and friendly recommendations. The price for a place on the beach was cheaper than many places located inland! Definitely would return.

Room Tip: Get a room on 3rd floor above for best view.

The rooms have ACs hooked to motion sensors so they AC does not run during the day or when you're asleep. Our room NEVER got below 80 degrees. Apparently the staff are tired of answering the same questions about the AC because the front desk staff, maintenance and the managers were all condescending and borderline rude.

They would not switch out our rooms until after 10pm because they did not believe the AC was broken and kept saying we had to give it time to cool down. The problem with that is any unoccupied room would have had the AC off all day as well so it would not have been any better. No credit was offered for the room after we asked.

The room itself was OK. Clean but very old. The beds were the most uncomfortable beds I've slept in, in a long time. The carpets and comforters were damp due to the lack of AC and high humidity in the rooms.

This would be a 2-star room to get if you decide to visit the beach in the winter, otherwise stay away in the summer months.

Room Tip: If you decide to stay here to save money, do not bother to upgrade to the bigger room. It's not...

The Schooner for the money we paid for a 7 day stay in June was great.The rooms are older,but have been kept very nice! Housekeeping and the front desk we very friendly and helpful.Our only complaint is the parking for the Inn.Its very tight and hard to get into some spaces. Overall my family would stay again because of the friendly staff,clean rooms,and price.

I was visiting a friend for the weekend who made all the arrangements and paid for the hotel room, so I can't speak on that behalf. One parking space per room only - any more cars were on their own. Only one overnight parking garage - expensive. Room was nice - not sure what level our room was, but it had a mini kitchen (mini fridge, mini microwave, and a sink). It also had a jacuzzi hot tub in the room in the main area in front of the window. Balcony was very tiny. Two people could about stand out there, not sure why there were even chairs out there. Door to balcony was stuck closed (per my friend); she reported and we never saw them come to fix. Disappointing. The hotel was at the end of the strip so the beach section was not quite as busy and the hotel is right next to public bathrooms and outside shower/feet faucet. So that part of location was nice. We did not eat in the area so can't speak of any restaurants. Room was clean and well kept. Outside pool was nice break from the beach, but not huge.
