“Nautilus Inn - Great place on the beach”
Reviewed July 17, 2014

We have stayed at Nautilus Inn several times over the years. It's a great place to stay with a friendly staff. It's nice that it's down from the Pier a bit so that you don't have a lot of noise from the amusement park.

Thank you for your review. We do have an awesome location close to the pier yet a little farther south of that area for some quiet time. Glad you enjoyed your stay.

The rooms are well equipped to allow to make meals. The view was amazing and the staff too
The pool was small but very clean
I would definitely go back
The breakfast was a welcome bonus!
As busy as it was over the holiday weekend there was never a mess or anything out of order!
Keep up the great work nautilus inn!

The Nautilus Inn is my favorite place to stay in Daytona Beach! We stay there annually for race week and have never been disappointed! The staff is by far the friendliest, most welcoming group of folks you'll meet! Miss Miley took my reservations over the phone & set me up with the best room in the place!!! Top floor corner room! It couldn't have been more perfect! Well, ok, the rains could've stayed away but with the comforts of our room it was awesome to watch the storms pass through & had a fabulous view of the beach! The fireworks for the 4th were amazing & we were able to see up & down the coast for quite a show! Leslee & all the girls at the front desk make you feel like they're welcoming you into their home with gracious smiles & heartwarming conversation! Our housekeeper, Sue was great! We didn't make it for Happy Hour but thoroughly enjoyed the breakfast for a quick bite before heading out. Our room was awesome! Very clean, very comfortable & spacious. The full refrigerator & kitchen area had all the comforts of home. The room was quiet & you didn't hear your "neighbors". The internet connection was a little sporadic at times, however this could have been the increased demand due to the larger volume of users staying over the holiday weekend. The landscaping around the area is lovely & the property is kept nice & clean. I look forward to our return to the Nautilus Inn each year!!! Thank you Miss Miley and all the staff who made our stay so perfect!!!

Room Tip: Oceanfront rooms all have an outstanding view!

This hotel was the perfect place to spend a rainy 4th of July weekend at the beach. All the rooms have an ocean view so when the down pours made us flee the beach, we still were steps from the ocean and could see the big storms roll in.
The rooms are spacious, with comfy beds and a balcony. Having a refrigerator was helpful too. The pool area had beautiful landscaping and a hot tub. The property seems on the newer side and it was well kept and clean. The entire staff accommodated our every wish and breakfast was included. After walking miles up and down the beach, it was evident that Nautilus was the best in the area. We chose the top floor and loved it.

Nautilus Inn was FABULOUS!! The staff is amazingly courteous and helpful. The room was big and the balcony actually large enough to enjoy. All new countertops and appliances. The room smelled divine every time entered! And the garden area and beach were excellent! We WILL be back with our children too!!!

Because of past experiences, I am always very skeptical when booking a "never been to" hotel online because they always tend to portray their property deceivingly. Not this hotel! From the moment you arrive, you are greeted with kindness and a smile. There are hotel staff everywhere, cleaning and making sure everything is tidy and operable. They feed you a full breakfast every morning; for free! The housekeeping in this hotel is nothing like I've seen in any hotel I have ever stayed! Everything is immaculate! These girls work hard; and it shows, not only in the guest rooms, but throughout the entire hotel. The staff here have got to be the friendliest I have ever encountered; everyone from Sue (10th floor housekeeper) to Chase and Sheila, and well everyone is just great! The Nautilus Inn just knows how to operate!! They are off the charts in my book!

We will definitely return to the Nautilus as well as recommend to others. We were 2 hours early and our room was ready, which was awesome after a 15 hour drive. The staff was so friendly and the entire place was clean. Myself, husband and 2 teenage sons absolutely loved the Cocktail hour along with the warm breakfast every morning. Also, our view of the ocean was the best!!!!! Thanks for a wonderful stay!
