Reviewed September 22, 2010

Beautiful location next to Lake.
Let down at time of visiting due to building work inc Swimming Pool.
Disappointments with room - alot of bird poo on balcony, hit knee on bed corner (as sticks out - beware!) Othersize the room was excellent size with separate living area and 2 large TVs.
Dinner was good. Breakfast very slow - insufficient staff.

we stayed here for one night in mid june as a half way house between vegas and los angeles. we hired a boat on the lake, which is a must-do, its simply incredible and the intense weather helps a lot. the resort itself is great, prime location with its own beach! a great bar called turtle bar and grill which serves up a good selection of food and drink. the rooms were a real mix of outdated styles mixed with modern items such as 2 huge flat screen tvs. the bathroom was small but served its purpose but a huge double sink area before entering a living room space complete with flat screen and sofa make it more than homely. definitely recommend and was better than we had expected

We paid $250 a night to stay in this dirty hotel. The same wrappers and qtip were outside our door the entire 5 days that we stayed here. The pool they advertise is the size of small child's pool and it was closed when we went to look at it. The spa was closed that they advertise and the children's water park was only open one time during our entire stay. I finally told my kids to just go on the water park even if it was closed until one of the staff members kicked them off. They had no reason why it was closed. I guess they just didn't want to actually work. What a complete joke of a resort. I would never recommend going to this place. The Turtle Bar next door was an eye opener for my kids when they witnessed topless women walking around with pasties on their nipples. Don't waste your money or vacation time on this place!

The Nautical Beachfront Resort is set in a good location, with nice views out over Lake Havasu, and it is a short drive to the London Bridge, however we have stayed in better hotels.

Whilst the staff were good at their jobs and the food was OK in the Turtle Bar, the standard of the rooms was not at the level expected. Rooms were clean and tidy, but dated and fairly old fashioned. The rooms from an external view were not appealing - concrete blocks really, but they were OK on the inside which I guess is the important bit.

I think this hotel would be fine if you are looking for a cheap budget hotel and if you are in to water sports then this would be a great place to rest your head at the end of the day. Compared to other hotels I have stayed at in the USA, I was disappointed by the overall standards.

Great location but Houskeeping and service were terrible. Poorly managed nobody knows much about the place that works there. Housekeeping seems to include maybe making the beds and replenishing your towels, The first day they made one of the 3 beds in the unit and this was the largest and most expensive and only 2 bedroom suite they have.They never vacuumed the floor, the whole place needs to be pressure washed from years of neglect. I would recommend London Bridge Resort intead of theis place.

For Euro readers, Lake Havasu City is the ‘Benidorm’ of the SouthWest.
A great lake setting in the middle of the desert, but a magnet for every personal water craft, RV and trailer for ‘000s of miles. What could have been delightful has been swamped by an urban sprawl of geezer-dom, jacked up trucks and chavs-with-toys. If you’re lucky you may find that quiet hotel-by-the-lake, and the Nautical certainly should be it. Great setting, very pleasant and efficient resort style reception, not so bad pricing, clean well equipped rooms (tho’ pleese guys, flush and air the bathrooms once in a while – the poo smell is too ‘islands authentic’), good views (if you get beach front) and actual sandy beaches. And therein lays the problem. Lets just say that it’s like staying in Monte Carlo, but having the rooms overlook the Formula1 race car pits… boats blasting in and outa the ramp, and soon drawn up on the small resort beach right in front. If you are already ‘deafened by kids’ or passing thro it’s OK, but warning, a quiet lakeside resort it ain’t. The resort Turtle Grill actually has quite good (fast) food but, ruined by service provided by Indifferent Teens R Us Inc. Nautical could be a whole lot better – shame. Better than a lot in Havasu (which isn’t saying much). Good for the experience but perhaps try further down the Colorado river.

Used this place as break point travelling from Grand Canyon to LA. Accommodation much bigger than I had expected with a lounge area, 2nd flat screen tv, full size fridge freezer and microwave. Overlooked the beach/lake and it was very quiet. Can imagine this would be a great place to stay for longer with children in season but suited us fine in off season period. Disappointed at the area by London Bridge - although out of season the 'London village' looked permently closed and run down. We picked up a flyer for 'walking tour' that sounded an absolute hoot - tales of the vikings saving London ! mass suicides !! and vampires !!! - unfortunately we only stayed overnight so didn't have time to find out if it was available.
