Rooms with kitchenettes and balconies at budget oceanfront hotel
This Virginia Beach hotel has a wide variety of room types and views of the Atlantic Ocean and boardwalk. The Schooner Inn is located near the Virginia Aquarium & Marine Science Museum.  The property is marked by a mosaic dolphin and island wall murals. The hotel attracts guests on low-key family vacations and affordable romantic getaways. There is an outdoor pool, and whirlpool rooms have heart-shaped tubs. Expect full kitchens in the larger suites.

Highlights
  • Studios, kitchenettes, suites and standard rooms with ocean views and private balconies
  • Some rooms with kitchens and Jacuzzis
  • Close to the Virginia Aquarium & Marine Science Museum
  • Large heated outdoor pool
  • The Schooner Inn is a completely smoke-free property

Rooms

In  the Schooner Inn guest rooms, king room has mint-colored walls, dark carpet, tiles and multi-colored bedding. Rooms with kitchenettes offer small kitchen sinks, microwaves and refrigerators. Efficiencies come with two-burner stovetops, dishware and utensils. Two-room suites have a bonus sofa bed plus two double beds in a separate bedroom. For an extra dose of romance, request a Whirlpool room with heart-shaped tub, where couples can soak by windows overlooking the ocean. 

Features

Visitors can ride cruisers outside the hotel, go rollerblading along the boardwalk or take a dip in  the Schooner Inn's on-site heated outdoor pool.  Prefer to work on the tan? Rent an umbrella and chair on the extra wide beach and enjoy the quiet peninsula and views of the Rudee Inlet to the south and west.

Schooner inn

It was a very nice stay. We got the king bed jacuzzi tub room with the balcony. We only stayed one night but I slept very well. The room was clean and had everything we needed. Nice little kitchen area with coffee, ironing board and iron, decent size flat screen tv, even had a hair dryer for the wife haha. Will stay there again next time we go to VA beach.

Nice getaway

My wife wanted to be on the beach and not pay a lot of money. The Schooner Inn was perfect. It was at the very end of Atlantic Ave, so the beach wasn't crowded. The hotel was nice and well kept.

Schooner Inn

Location is perfect! Beautiful views., but the walls are very thin and you can hear everything going on in the rooms around you. This was my only complaint. I liked the location and the room was decent sized, just didn't sleep very well as you could hear doors open and closing, bathwater running, and people walking and talking down the halls.

Time-saving tip: Short drive from hotel

We stayed here to attend a concert at Farm Bureau Live. Best idea ever, it was a 10 minute drive directly to and from the concert, no traffic getting into the venue from here or coming back.

Decent for the time of the year

While it was Labor Day when we stayed, the value was fairly decent. The hotel was right where we needed it to be, but good restaurants are bit of a walk away. The parking situation is ridiculous as there is a really tight parking lot and some really large cars.

Love the heart shaped jacuzzi!

We come here every year and get two adjoining rooms...one with a king sized bed/heart shaped jacuzzi tub and the other with two double beds. I love this set up and you can't beat the price! Tory is the friendliest staff member and always very accomodating! Thank you for the great service!! It's the last hotel on the oceanfront so it's less noisy, plus you can watch the surfers right from your balcony. We always bring our bikes and use the bike trail on the boardwalk. Can't wait to come back next year!

disappointed

The hotel was very average for that high of a price. Could have paid a little more money for a lot better quality hotel.

2 night stay over July 4th weekend

Room itself was decent, beds comfortable, hot tub odd but felt wonderful, down at end so away from most noise, parking good. Missed cleaning our room the first night so just sent up clean towels. Next day's cleaning was spotty...tub never cleaned, food particles around table from when we first arrived still there. bathroom floor not cleaned either. Changed our room key after some unknown person was able to scan into our room while we were sitting there playing a board game. Scary!

Probably Won't Stay Again...

Cons Location: This hotel is located at the very end of the Beach Strip. Literally the last hotel on yhe strip. The downside to this is that all the action and good eating are all the way at the other end. Check-in: They have to do better with the check-in process as we had to wait 45 minutes in line with only 5 or 6 guest ahead. That's 7 to 9 minutes to check in one guest. Unacceptable. Amenities: No gym, no business center, not even a lobby restroom but we'll get to that in a minute. First, the only amenity this hotel has is one pool and that's located smack in the middle of the hotel parking lot in front of the hotel. While the beach is in the rear. It would be so much better to have the pool on the same side as the beach like most hotels. Second, they don't even have a bathroom in the lobby area so when my little one had to go several times after being in the pool for a few hours, we had to keep making trips to our room on the fifth floor. The room: The negative about the room was that the AC in the room was not working as efficient as it should. The temperature wouldn't drop below 73 degrees and the room stayed very humid. We couldn't figure out why a room with two double beds would have a jacuzzi tub right in the room with no partition *shrugs shoulders*. Pros Staff: The staff, particularly Lisa (I think that was her name), was exceptionally nice and went above and beyond to get us an oceanfront view room. She gave me tips on what to do with my car to protect since hurricane Arthur was in route to the area. Just a really nice lady. The room: The positive about the room was that it was very clean and the beds were comfy. A small kitchenette was quite convenient. Overall if I were on a tight budget I may stay again but if my money can afford me otherwise then otherwise it is.
