Wonderful older hotel with a very friendly staff. Location was not too busy or loud; much more family friendly than I expected. The main area as well as room was very clean and welcoming. We loved the free breakfast and happy hour. :)

Room Tip: Request a high floor.

We had read so many good reviews, we decided it was worth trying this new hotel. We were so impressed by the whole experience! Upon check-in, we noticed how tastefully decorated the hotel lobby was. The staff was so helpful with local information, housekeeping was outstanding at making sure our room was fresh and ready for our arrival, the continental breakfast was great, and our view of the ocean was outstanding! We would definitely recommend this hotel.

My family has been coming to the Nautilus Inn since I was 3 years old and now I am 30. This year was really disappointing. The management staff was really rude and called my father a day into our week stay to insist that he pay the $75 balance on our room, he told her that he was watching his grandchildren and would pay the rest when he checked out and she yelled at him that that was unacceptable and he needed to come down and pay NOW. Also when he booked the suite he said it was for 4 adults and two babies and they gave him that rate for that. When we checked out they added another $140 to the room because they said every adult over 2 is an extra 10 bucks a night, what hotel adds that at the end?? Also if it is a suite that sleeps 6 why do you get charged for having over 2 adults??
My other major complaint is the activity lady. She was HORRIBLE, I didn't see anyone participating in any of her activities because she had such a bad attitude. I saw her reprimanding adults and children alike for having a good time with their family and when she came around everyone got really uncomfortable. She made my father put away a beach ball because it might be dangerous. SHe doesn't have the personality for work with people. One guest brought her grandson down to make the craft and she turned him away because he didn't sign up 4 hours in advance?!?!
Watch out for over charging and the the awful activity lady! Bright side was Sue the housekeeper she was great and very accommodating and made our room bright and shiny every day!

Like most hotels, we calculate our prices based on double occupancy- two people in the room. When it was brought to our attention that you in fact had 5 adults in the room, the rate was adjusted accordingly. I will certainly look in to your other concerns and we do sincerely regret any miscommunications about your room rate.

We really enjoyed the accommodations at Nautilus Inn. Rooms were very clean and modern, Book a room with a ocean view. From our balcony we were able to enjoy watching beach goers, birds fishing in the ocean, and even a pod of dolphins swimming by one afternoon. The only downfall too the area is most of the better restaurants are on the other side of the Halifax river, but most are within a 15min drive.

This hotel was very lovely for many reasons. The rooms were very clean and spacious and the balcony was the perfect size. The hotel is right on the beach and they have a very pleasant pool/ sun deck area with lots of chairs and tables. There were lots of activities to do there for people of all ages. Every morning right by the breakfast area they had a board set up with the daily activities. The complimentary breakfast was a treat too. They offered biscuits, gravy, eggs, and some other tasty options. I've been to do Daytona before and when I return I will definitely stay here again. The staff was very friendly as well! You just can't beat the value here!

Just got back from a week long visit to Daytona Beach. The Nautilus Inn was was a fantastic place to stay. The staff was great! They were all friendly and informative. We especially enjoyed Sue who was the housekeeper for our floor. She was excellent, friendly, humorous and does a great job keep the rooms clean. Everyone from the front desk to maintenance workers were fabulous! The hotel was clean at all times, which isn't a easy task considering all the sandy feet coming in and out. The guest were also friendly. Congratulations to the management for having a great hotel that is staffed with extraordinary people. We are excited about planning our next trip to visit you all again next year.

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.
