The room was spacious and nice. We had an outside patio which was nice too. This motel is right on the water and it was so fun to sit out back at the large outside area. We saw dolphins playing and watched the boats go by. The staff was very pleasant. we would definitely stay here again.

I have been going to The Boat House Motel with my family for many,many years. Every year- I love going there more and more. It is in a very convenient location and the staff is always incredible. We called last minute and Desiree(the owner) went out of her way-as she always does for her guests to accommodate. We arrived after...

Weekend get-away with my fiance. She picked the boat house, and we got the room with a balcony over the water. It was awesome. Clean, comfortable, bright, quiet, and for a great price. Nice view of the channel and sland. Saw some people fishing off the dock. Definitely will visit again.

We found Marco Island an expensive vacation place, especially when compared to other Florida Gulf coast locations, Naples, Venice Sarasota etc. Holiday accommodation being one of our major spends, we looked for value for our meagre pound. We had stayed at the Boat House some years previous so,we knew what to expect. It did not disappoint, basic in its appearance,...

The Boat House was a delightful little place to stay in Marco Island. It was nothing fancy, but yet so desirable. Actually it was rather refreshing from the expensive high rise hotels. The dock was fantastic for gathering our whole group or for enjoying the morning sun with a cup of coffee. Our room was very clean with everything we...

Visited this motel several times,and each visit is better than the next! Staff is lovely and the view is breathtaking. Great hotel for children due to great fishing off the dock. Nothing better than having a nice cold beverage on the dock,watching the sunset, and reeling in fish! Can't wait to go back to my happy place.
