Unwittingly booked a 'poolside' room. Turned out to be smaller room w/ large dorm style frig w/ microwave on top w/ sm coffee maker on top of that. 'Kitchenette' was place in the smallest nook of a closet (no door/curtain) where you couldn't hang a scarf! Rm door would not latch unless banged. Felt sorry for rest of folks anytime we came/went frm rm. The rm was a connecting rm which would have made it ideal for kids during a family stay. Have previously stayed here, it is actually my favorite hotel on the boarwalk, but as I sat... be sure to book Oceanview. These rms, besides the view, have full kitchenette ( stovetop, sink, dishes/cookware, silverware, ref., micro). Again, the booking was my mistake n I didn't feel right asking for a dif rm due to my err. The staff is great and respected my desire not to receive service due to COVID (we had plenty of towels etc.) They were even able to arrange to allow me to arrive a day earlier than my reserv. due to winter weather. Fantastic value great location...jus be sure you book oceanside!😊

Schooner Inn is nicely situated on the inlet at Virginia Beach. Everything was as it should be and the price was great.

hotel was clean, nice and exactly what you would expect. i have two small children with me and thought having the play ground near by was great. The park was a complete bore, 10 minutes and they had enough. i was also surprised that i had not seen reviews mentioning the near by airforce base with loud Jets that sore by low and loud all day long. we thought they were cool but if your looking for a peaceful Beach vaca, you should know , this area has an all day long loud jet show.

You get what you pay for. The front desk staff were ok, when I checked out the overweight curly haired employee was a bit rude. The interior of the rooms need to be updated badly. The bathroom was gross. There was a very noisy family with unruly kids on our floor, I had to call management twice ( they were good about taking care of this). There was no social distancing and not everyone was wearing a mask.
