Best lakeside Resort! Management is awesome. Friendliest servers Dawn and Lynn were amazing. We can't wait to come back. We enjoyed lunch in the restaurant and drinks in the sand. We were just ahead of the spring break crowd. Great people watching!

It was our first time for spring break staying at The Nautical. The trip was outstanding from beginning to end. Making reservations should always be made in advance, cause this place is THE PLACE to stay!! The staff saw to it we had everything we needed. Security was present as well as the General Manager, making sure all was good....

These guys are the WORST!! Do not rent from them unless you want to get ripped off. The manager does not know how to deal with people and is a real jerk when it comes down to it. We took a pontoon boat out on a pretty windy day, but when we got out on the water it was much...

This was the worst hotel I have ever been too! I would not pay more then 10 dollars a night for this two star motel. Rude and slow service. The maids didn't come once to our room and the resort charged us for unnecessary charges. I would not recommend this to anyone including teenagers and young adults. The staff and...

We stayed for the 3 day special they offered and were pretty disappointed. Rooms are very overpriced and the resort fee is a joke. The room was very outdated and run down - the couch looked like it belonged on the porch of a frat house. Carpet was very old and stained. The patio furniture was old rusty wrought iron...

We booked a three night stay here. when we got there the reception area was hard to find. The road leading in was broken and very rough.

Hi Joe Thank you for your review. Your comments and feedback are important to us and they will be shared with our management team.

“Don't do it. Really a shame because the staff is really nice and the location is great. The hotel needs to be either severely renovated or demolished and rebuilt. Dirty rooms, bloody pillow, broken Ac, dirty towels, stink, and bed bugs. ”
