This is our 6th time visiting Nautilus! Previous visits were over night before & exitng the hectic world of Disney. This time, we stayed a week, just beach and pool. Most guests are bused in from Canada on a regular weekly basis. They have always been a delightful group of people. All are retired. The staff have always been so helpful and very friendly. Not a big hotel at all, you will run into the same people. It's a friendly crowd. Rick, Rose & Desmond.....are much fun and always have a smile on! This is a very clean hotel! It is an amazing feeling to know that, when you go to sleep you don't have to worry about anything crawling around or in your mouth. Seriously, think about it! If you are a mouth breather...then this is your kinda place! Beds are very comfortable, spacious bathroom, could use some more shelving, small frig, stove top and micro with all kitchen supplies to make meals. Balcony from every room has view of ocean, there are 9 floors, I recommend 4th floor and above for total view of ocean. I felt very safe for my three teenagers for them to walk freely around the hotel and back and forth from the beach. WIFI access at pool, hot coffee served all day long, I made ice coffees. Continental breakfast provided, breads, cakes, cereals, hard boiled eggs & fruits, nothing extragent, but enough. There's also a diner across the street in walking distance & Winne Dixie. A public computer in foyer, happy hour free drinks and heated pool with jacuzzi, that was excellent! The pool water was very clean and area well kept, amble chairs and umbrellas provided on deck, towels provided. Beach offers chair & umbrella rentals. Bring bikes for the beach, rentals are outrageous. Bring a kite! Six golf courses less than 10 miles. Found ourselves going over to the mainland for dinners and lunches. As for local restaurants, we found nothing clean enough for us to eat at. Visit the Hilton in downtown Daytona, you will find nice restaurants there. We know Nautilus Inn to be a safe environment for me and my family, it is above excellence in cleanliness!, above excellence in courteous staff. You know Daytona, you know what it attracts !....this Inn is an exception and I highly recommend this place for you to get a restful nights sleep.
We most certainly will come again.....Maria Schwerdtfeger

My husband and I stayed five nights in April 2011, after having a bad experience on our first night at another hotel. The hotel caters to older travelers that are bused in from Canada (lots of them) and they have organized activities for them. We had a room with a kitchenette (full size refrigerator and stove) and a balcony with a side view of the ocean. The room was very clean and everything was in good condition. The continental breakfast is just okay -- very basic. We tried the happy hour one day but to be honest it consists of cheap wine and weak drinks, so we didn't go back. My husband and I are in our mid-fifties and the geriatric crowd was a lovely bunch of people, but sometimes it grew a little tiresome to be around the crowds of them and their organized activities. In addition to the nice rooms this hotel is QUIET at night so you don't need to worry about being next to a party animal, which we were concerned about initially in visiting Daytona Beach at spring break time. The staff at the Nautilus are very helpful and friendly. There was always an abundance of parking spots since most of the travelers were bused in. I think it's a great place to stay if you don't mind being around the geriatric crowd. I'd definitely consider staying there again.

Great Hotel! Friendly staff, all you have to do is ask and they'll take care of you! Nice heated pool & hot tub. The nights we stayed the hotel had a tour bus with senior citizens from Canada. They were all wonderful! We were the youngest guest there and it was very nice. My daughter & her friend interacted very well and learned some interesting things from them. We decided to say another night, but at a different hotel (because it was a little cheaper) WOW! The girls liked the Nautilus Inn way better then the other hotel and wanted to go back! It was great, i would reccomend to anyone. Great location, fantastic view of The World's Greatest Beach!

What a great place. Clean, clean clean. Beautiful views of the ocean, and a staff that will have you smiling. The free happy hour doesn't hurt either.
Didn't have a chance to get in the beautiful heated pool this time, the air was a little chilly .
