“always love it”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 7, 2004

I have been going to Lake Havasu for family vacations for over 20 years and started staying at the Nautical Inn every year for the last 7. Now I take my family and the Inn is just great. The rooms aren't fancy but the location and the people are great. You just can't beat being able to beach your boat right outside your front door. The cove is protected most of the time, however I have been there when some wind storms have come up and they can get a bit hairy. Especially when people don't know how to secure their vessel. Overall, a great experience for me and my family. I hope my children grow up with the great memories I did and bring their families.

It is true, the rooms are far from fancy, however the location is excellent! You are just around the cove from the London Bridge and a great bar for the evening. You can beach your boat on a nice sand beach which is a stone's throw away from you room. Basically, the location is key, you are where most of the cool stuff happens.

This place is a complete dump. Dirty, smelly, has bugs, and God knows what else. The best thing about this place is leaving it knowing you don't ever have to come back. If you must stay here, don't pay more than $35 for the room. Oh, and don't let the "remodeled!" pitch fool you. My review above is that of a "remodeled" room.

Stayed at the Nautical Inn for 2 nights. Had a "parlor suite" overlooking the lake. 2 queens and a sofa bed, refrigerator and a sink. Room was not fancy at all and could definetly use a freshining up to modern times. Quite expensive for what I got.
On the bright side I could beach my boat in front of my room so it was always ready for action. The people were very nice.
