Worst place we're ever stayed and would not let us cancel. The floor was falling in and the boat was in disrepair. We checked out after the first night but manager refused to give our money back. Lesson learned. Do not rent these boatels.

We had read the reviews and thought people were too picky. WRONG ! We were put in Boat #4 and can honestly say it looked like we expected but the SMELL was unbearable. After 2 hours and getting febreeze from the staff (who said "you should have smelled it earlier") we gave up and moved. We hope to get our... More

This place is also called the House Boat Hotel. We thought the idea of staying in a houseboat was romantic. And it is, but not here. The location is very beautiful and the managers are very nice but the property is extremely run down. The boat listed to the starboard side and smelled strongly of mildew. The carpet was torn...

I HIGHLY suggest you check out the review from Reneeborg of Traverse City, Michigan. It is right on. The people are nice. Location is great - especially to watch the stars. It is inexpensive and you get what you pay for - and they are updating/sheets are clean - but some serious resources should be put into new beds and... More

We stayed in room 2 in the first boat, and it was way better than we expected. They were doing some construction in a room off of the kitchen, and it had a strong damp smell that was not pleasant, but not horrible. The bedroom was nice, no odor, comfy bed. Bathroom was fine, too. We were only given two... More

When some people dream of the perfect vacation, they think of luxurious accommodations, all inclusive food and drink plans, guided tours and possibly never having to leave their resort/hotel for entertainment. If you are one of those people, you needn't read any further. The Boatel Hotel is a great reasonably priced, eclectic conglomeration of docked houseboats and structures located right... More

You could not ask for a better location or hideaway. Too bad though that even the basics are not even kept up here. Would it really cost that much to make sure the place was clean, safer and kept up? Mattresses for travelers all need to be replaced with decent beds as well. Toilet ran all the time. Big hole... More
