Reviewed yesterday NEW

We were happily surprised, we were not expecting much. Even though an older hotel it was exactly what we needed. The room was very large & clean. This hotel was reasonable & had a great location. We had a great stay!

Lovely room with a great view of the lake! Spectacular sunrises. Thanks to Stephanie Flenner for helping with our reservation! The infinity pool is beautiful and we enjoyed the Thanksgiving buffet at the Turtle restaurant. It took 10-15 minutes for the shower to get hot water and there is no recycling on the premises. Rowdy folks pounded on our door...

Great front desk gal. Gave us the Trip Advisor rate even though we just walked in w/o a reservation. Room was huge; a little dated, but it came with a view of the lake so we didn't care. Bar was AWESOME. The waitress took great care of us. Huge portions of food with great cocktails. Will definitely stay here again...

Great facility, amazing location, but really dirty room and the whole property needs a good reno. The restaurant and staff took good care of us for the holiday weekend, but that room was gross. Come on folks, clean up your act and get some decent wifi and a fitness center.

View was great from room. Comfortable bed. Pleasant staff. On-site restaurant was acceptable. Wifi did not work in room; staff said it was because of thick walls. There was no breakfast on site that i could find. Not sure why I had to pay resort fee for a mediocre hotel experience.

I love the Nautical Inn and wouldnt stay anywhere else when I visit Havasu. I am from Havasu and prefer the Nautical to any other place. I stay even though my mother has a house there. The pool has been redone and is fabulous. The Naked turtle has amazing food. The staff is really pleasant and the management is amazing....
