The resort is located on the small peninsula across the London Bridge on the lake. One building is pet friendly. All buildings are on a small lagoon. The room amenities are fine, though not new or special. Our 2 bed room had a sofa, as well. Our only complaint is with housekeeping. They failed to service our room the one...

Stayed here for a couple of days as a winter getaway from our cold Montana home. The resort is older but appears to be getting a remodel currently. Room was clean, well appointed, and had a great view of the lake from our patio. We really enjoyed having the separate sitting area from the bed area. The pool was warm...

Awesome! Beautiful scenery. The staff was really nice and welcoming! I would definitely recommend this place to family and friends. The room was spacious and clean. We had two tv's. One in the livingroom and the other in the bedroom. So beautiful! I will definitely go back.

We stayed at the Nautical Beachfront Resort on our visit to Lake Havasu for the Hot Air Balloon Festival. It was a short 5 minute walk from the Resort to the Festival as it was held on the Resort's property.

We were on the beach side and the view is amazing. The resort is older but well maintained. We were there in January so not much going on at the resort. Food was just average. Resort fee of $19.99 per day but they waived it for us. Very friendly staff.

Very friendly and helpful staff. Our room was upper level overlooking the lake towards town. Dog friendly with pet runs at 2 sides of the hotel and poop bag dispensers around the property. Across from the hotel entrance is a paved walking/biking path that goes around the island . Would stay here again!

Rain, wind or sun, always a fun weekend at the balloon festival. I heard great weather Friday. Saturday not so good, wind and rain. And then good weather again on Sunday. A few balloons on Sunday had to be towed back to shore. Wind direction wasn't cooperating.

I was in Lake Havasu for the Balloon Festival. I was staying with some friends at their home. The first night they had a main water pipe break and we had no water.

Stayed during the balloon festival. Front desk person when we checked in didn't smile once, nor welcome us. Room was dated but maintained. Restaurant served food that was worse than a Denny's but charged 3 times more (we ate there twice out of necessity)
