Desiree is the kindest person to work with. The hotel is clean and great for those that don't want the hustle and bustle of a big hotel, loved it! No food on site bout Walking distance to restaurants and shopping. Bring your fishing rod!

Quaint older hotel on the water and within walking distance of good food and entertainment. Clean and comfortable with gracious staff. Pool overlooks water. Caught the people ferry for quick 2 plus hour boat ride to Key West for weeks stay in KW and back. Would stay here again!

Room was recently renovated and immaculate. Partial water view, which was more than we expected. Friendly service and great location, near Snook Inn. Best value we have found on the island. We will plan to go back.

We stayed a week in the Gazebo and it was so peaceful! We would wake up to the ocean and dolphins. This place is amazing! The house is surrounded by glass so at any time we can look outside and enjoy the ocean. The boats go by and there is plenty to see. There is great fishing especially at night.... More

We stayed at the Boat House in the beginning of March just for a couple days. It was clean and the service was great. The room was perfect. It is not near the beach but it is walking distance to The Snook Inn which is one of the best places to go on Marco to eat and hang out. We... More

I had read great reviews for The Boat House and found that they were all true. What a great space to stay in Marco Island. I was not interested in a resort-like atmosphere. I would much rather have clean, friendly, and attentive. That is what I found. Tucked away it offered a quiet space. The staff made me feel right... More

This little gem is a family owned motel located on the water where you'd dock your boat so a pretty view. I'd call it rustic, no frills type but had all you certainly need. Very clean and comfortable, (I don't go on vacation to sit in my room), small pool heated although I didn't go in it, it was certainly... More

This is an older hotel, but it's very clean and well cared for. The owner and all the staff are extremely friendly and helpful. The pool is small, but warm. We spent 6 nights here and saw dolphins from the pool deck everyday. Located in Old Marco, It's within walking distance to restaurants and shopping

My husband and I stayed four nights at this special place in early March. What a happy chance that we ended up here instead of in a cookie-cutter hotel with ho-hum decor. We enjoyed the home-like atmosphere at The Boat House and the ability to sit outside on the deck overlooking the water, watching the boats coming through, and in... More
