Room was cleaned one time in 8 days. Door to adjoining rooms fell off hinges. Had to report twice before it got fixed. Bathtub would not drain properly when taking shower so you stood in water. Small efficiency had no drawers so a family of 3 had to keep everything in suitcases. Had to go and ask for toilet paper so you might want to take an extra roll. Beds were squeaky and mattress had dip in center so you rolled to center. Would not recommend.

Great little pet friendly hotel. We stayed here for a weekend get away and had a really great time. Rooms are cute and clean. Staff is friendly. Close to good restaurants and activities. We will make this our go to beach stay place.

Ultra short walk to the beach, very clean room, nice clean swimming pool, pet friendly and helpful staff. Excellent choice if your looking to get away from the gigantic oceanfront high rise scene. Only suggestion would be to keep the pool open later in the summer, 9pm is pretty early in June or July. Would absolutely stay at again if in the area.

I just spent an entire week at the Schooner Hotel and it was absolutely perfect. I couldnt have been any happier with my hotel choice. The room had the most gorgeous ocean front view and everything was so clean!! I cant stress enough how much we loved this hotel :-) This was my first time staying at the Schooner and I plan on returning every year now. Its close to John's Pass but yet far enough away that its quiet and relaxing without all the hustle and bustle. I absoluely recommend this hotel to anyone. I cant say enough good things about this place!!

The Schooner Hotel was our home away from home from May 27 thru May 31. Spent a wonderful five days there with my daughter; our first of many mother/daughter vacations to be spent at the Schooner!!! Helpful staff, clean rooms, on the beach, lots of fun stuff to do and see that are within miles of the hotel. Nice and quiet and very laid back atmosphere!

We are very fond of The Schooner as it's a beachy-laid-back kind of place. This was our 2nd stay here this year. Our first stay was New Years Eve and we enjoyed watching fireworks up & down the beach. Speaking of the beach, the sand is only about 20 feet from the building. The rooms have been nicely updated & are clean and inviting. The rooms we've stayed in were well equipped with a microwave, mini fridge/freezer, coffee pot and all of the basic utensils you could need (bigger rm had a full sized fridge, stove/oven, toaster, pots & pans). Pet friendly is a plus but you should note that dogs are prohibited on the beach. Ann Marie the room attendant is an ever present warm and friendly face, and an absolute credit to this establishment. Dave's Dockside Grill across the street has the BEST grouper sandwich & fried scallops around. On the down side...they have got to address the wireless internet situation. My BF wasn't EVER able to connect and he needs to have internet access at all times for his work. While I occasionally found a signal it was excruciatingly slow and it kept going in & out (essentially useless). At least 2 other guests mentioned that they were having the same problems. When we asked the front desk about the issue they said something about cement walls, an unacceptable excuse for a place that claims to offer wi-fi. Thanks to the internet issue we had to scramble to find another hotel, which was difficult during peak season.

Room Tip: If you must have reliable wireless internet access DO NOT stay here.
