I've been going to The Schooner for over 30 years. Half my family lives in this area, including my parents, so I know it very well. Most of the reviews here are spot-on-this IS originally a 50's motel, with a remodel. It CAN be loud. The patio is all brick. Yes, it's possible to run out of toilet paper if you don't ask for more before you need it (THE HORROR!) Just ask for what you need-the staff will provide. If you want daily housekeeping-ASK. I find it hard to believe someone's entire bathroom window was missing and nobody did anything about it. This place is not perfect, the bathrooms in some units are tiny. But since the remodel 2 years ago, the rooms are pretty, clean and all floors are now tile. If you like to sleep in til noon, you're on a honeymoon, a special-treat vacation or you want to be pampered-this is not your place. If you want an affordable, clean place ON THE GULF, maybe to take your dog with, check out The Schooner. I don't know whose dumb idea it was to change the name from "motel" to "hotel"-it is a motel-all doors to rooms are from an outside hall-this does contribute to noise. We go here because it's affordable, casual, on the beach, excellent location (everything's in walking distance) and they allow pets. If you go away to be on the beach, outside, doing things, do stay here. If your vacation consists mainly of staying in and admiring your room-look elsewhere-and take 2-3 times as much money for your accommodations.
