Another great stay at The Boat House over labor day weekend. Everything as expected, nice clean room with kitchenette, our boat docked within view, dolphin visiting daily, Snook Inn Happy Hour within walking distance... doesn't get better than that. This is our "relaxing vacation" and The Boat House never disappoints. We will be back...

Only good place to stay on Marco Island. Friendly staff. Clean room with a kitchenette. Beautiful sunset. Nice pool. Parking is a little tight. Nice motel in the middle of high rise condo city. I do not recommend staying on Marco Island at all except for Boat House Motel. Very overdeveloped. Unless you are rich, this is not the place... More

Love staying at the Boat House Motel. Rooms are always clean, comfortable and have everything you need. The pool is clean and a welcome site at the end of a day. The location is perfect and quiet. We always see dolphins off the docks playing in the water, which is a bonus! Highly recommend!

We booked this mom-and-pop because it looked like a quaint establishment in lovely Marco Island. We were not disappointed. Although an older building, it was spotless and updated. The room, pool and dock were all steps from each other so it was really convenient. All amenities were stocked in the room. We met some great folks who were dock fishing... More

Was looking for a small quiet place where we could relax and was close to the ocean. Well this place was just the ticket. The room was clean, had a nice view of the bay and the service was great. Not only would I recommend this place, but when I go back to Marco Island, I will say here.

I wish I was sitting on the porch of room #1 right now with a glass of wine, watching the sun set and my husband fishing off the dock. Great little getaway. If you love to fish this a perfect little spot, you can fish right off the dock. If you have a few families or couples that you want... More

We came across this hotel by chance when doing a Florida road trip. My partner loved it as he is a big fishing fan, for him it was perfect. The room was comfortable only downside was not plug in the bath, however I managed. We will be going back either 2015 or 2016 and booking in advance to make sure... More

A little piece of tranquility in the middle of a very busy resort. I recommend paying a little extra and get one of the two rooms with their own porch on the dock, where you can sit and watch the sun going down, and see the dolphins as they pass by. Very,very helpful staff, and good clean accommodation. This is... More

All the rest of the hotel / motels on the island are much more expensive, therefore this motel has good value for money. We chose it from the photos posted on the internet and it did not let us down. The sunsets watching the dolphins play are the most memorable. We are on a tight budget and there is only... More
