The beds were awful, no barrier between the sheet and bed, we found multiple creepy crawlies in our sheets. Everything was broken. The toaster, the stove top, the paper towel holder. There was dog hair on my feet every time I put them down. There were dogs everywhere. Not leashed, barking at you as you walk by. I like dogs but why does every room here have small barking dogs? Everywhere is heavily smoked in. No fresh air here. Multiple very drunk individuals. Overall very trashy feel. The view is great. It’s directly on the beach. Within walking distance of restaurants and activities. Never once in four days did we get house keeping, towels, or anything. Very disappointed in the atmosphere, cleanliness, and property itself
Was looking for a last minute trip for my daughters birthday. I thought, close to the beach and the area not to bad, I’ll give it a try. First off, outrageous price, ok this once, daughters birthday. So disappointed! Place shows so much wear…updated, no just band aids. If you are going to update then do a good job! Shower head was shaking and wate barely came out. Of course couldn’t take a shower naked because we had an unobstructed window in our shower! (See pics). Garbage littered on the outside, dirty place really! Had a kitchen and no forks! Sure there was black mold in bathroom (see pics). On day of check out loaded car and thought we’d spend an hour at the beach. Had a couple hours before check out. When walking back to room to freshen up our door was open?! They were cleaning it..I said we hadn’t checked out yet. Come to find out Chuck (manager) had looked in our room and assumed we had left. I told him as a rule I check out when I leave a hotel. There are so many options on the beach, next time I’ll look a little harder! …
I like it but the walls and ceiling had cob webs on them and a broken picture frame and the floors was dirty as well..not sure if i will go there again...i didnt see but only one person messing with the grounds..I really didnt like her at all..
My family use to love this place. The new owners have completely changed the atmosphere. The prices use to be some of the best, now it’s absolutely ridiculous. No updates, no extra amenities, just higher prices for less. Will be finding a new yearly vacation spot.
Very upset with the raising of the prices, no pets been coming here for years . The new owners should have kept it the same way it was before.. This is crazy the prIces there asking.. BEYOND DISSAPOINTED .. WILL BE FINDING SOMEWHERE ELSE TO STAY .. ALL MY FRIENDS AGREE.. Keeping prices at a decent price will bring back your loyal customers ..think about it.
The good: the room was clean and staff were friendly. The bad: the outside of the hotel was run down and dingy. Resort personnel were not good at communicating via email, but were very friendly when we checked in. For $247 on a Tuesday night, I just expected more.
Back home from vacation and now have time to gather my thoughts about The Schooner Motel. When we first arrived the was a VERY LOUD and rough crowd, drinking, smoking and being extremely rowdy. They had taken over one room, the small patio and the pool area. My wife was very concerned about safety. Being very tired from our trip we entered our room, while expecting an "Old Florida" room it was not what I expected. First impression dirty stove, broken window blinds, burnt out bulb in bathroom, interesting puddle of water in the shower floor, sliding door to patio would not open, all said a little tired and worn. Oh and on the door there is a sign stating there will be no daily maid service and, I guess. if you need fresh bed linens ask and make the bed yourself. And can't forget the interesting sign above the sink "If you leave dirty dishes you will be charged a $30 fee". I had booked my stay through Expedia and upon arrival received a questionnaire from them wanting to know how things were going. Gave good review on two of the three questions. The bad review was based on the rowdy group of guest and room conditions. Now things get weird. The next afternoon as we returned to our room we were confronted by the owner / manager wanting to know why we gave him the bad review. While he didn't bother me he made my wife very uncomfortable. She said he seemed more concerned about the review than trying to make things right. He stated he was aware of the crowd but it was "Big Game Night" and that was OK. I think his goal it to become an extended stay motel rather the a vacation location. All said I can not recommend the property and will probably not stay again. Was overpriced for what we got…
Want to say thanks for our amazing stay. They went above and beyond to accommodate us. The pool hot tub and rooms were clean. Would stay herw again in heart beat. My granddaughter loved the magic show and being on the beach. Thanks for all you did. JEANNIE
After coming for over 10 yr. new management is now NO PETS!!! Room booked under old system for Aug 2020, told can still bring pets. Now, because of a few ignorant people, ALL pet people can no longer come! My year old reservation was cancelled.
my family has been going there booking several rooms for four years. It was never fancy but always clean and maintained fairly well. This year we found the place unacceptable. the two ceiling fans in my room had an inch of dust on every blade, the bathroom smelled and had bugs, the oven was dirty, the towels had yellow stains on them. the bedroom has one of those indoor self standing ac units which took up space and blows right on the person on that side. one of the rooms had blood on the bedspread. the towels they provided were left outside the room, which is normal, but in the pouring rain in a puddle. lets just say all the rooms had issues. there was the same dirty socks and dirty plastic cups left outside my room for the full four days we were there. under CDC cv19 guidelines, not doing a good job imo. the "new ownership" needs to get on top of it especially if the rates are rising…
