We stayed in the king room top floor. There was so much room it was lovely. Great view at night. Pool was nice and warm. Quiet hotel and in a nice location. We saw the Dolphins swim by the dock one night. They have a laundry room.

My husband and I have been staying at the Boathouse Motel for the last 20 years. We have stayed at the motel, in one of their condos and the Gazebo. This is a special place very unlike a chain establishment. The owners, Desiree and Nick, always make us feel welcome. Each unit is unique and spotless. The property has a... More

Glad we found this motel tucked away in the Old Marco area! Great location! We had a comfortable stay, owners were very friendly and want to make their guests happy. Best part is they allow dogs, a rarity on Marco! Excellent alternative to the very expensive resort hotels but close to everything. Will stay here again!

The Boat House Motel is located at the tip of Old Marco where boats pass by the dock. It is reasonably priced, has a small pool, very clean, and just a stroll away from several good restaurants and little shops. I enjoyed the beauty of Marco Island without the traffic of midtown tourists, although it's only 3 or 4 minutes... More

We checked in very late and found the keys taped to the office window as promised. The room was spacious and cute. Very quiet. Extra little bed in case you want a cozy spot to read. The dock was a great place to have morning coffee, happy hour or just relax. Birders will enjoy watching the osprey and herons across... More

We found this motel and it was perfect! We ended up staying an extra night, as it was affordable and had a great location. Room was spacious and comfortable.
