My family and I stayed here. It was our first trip to Marco Island. We had an amazing stay here during Memorial Day weekend and we highly recommend it. Our room was very spacious for a family of four. The room was clean and although we did not have water view, our room had a spacious outdoor private patio. My... More

We have been going to the boat house for a couple of years. I have to say it's the best place ever, my son would rather go there then Disney. It's also very good for those who love to fish. If you need a place to get away and relax, this is the place.

Had a great time. Very nice quaint hotel in Old Marco Island. Would recommend to have rental kayaks to go across canal to the beach right across. That would make it spectacular. Nice pier to fish from and you get to see dolphins and manatees. Restaurants are walking distance from the hotel. Would recommend to family and friends.

Accommodations were great and owner very hospitable. Suggestions for dinner were spot on. Pool and deck were great. Highly recommended. Bed very comfortable and efficiency very well stocked. Marco Island caters to the Burrowing owls....very cool.

Had a wonderful experience at this quaint motel in the Old Town section of Marco Island. If you want glitz, glamour and pretense, do not come here. If you want personalized service, friendly staff, comfortable lodging, a great deck with which to watch Dolphins, Osprey, Pelicans and the passers by on their watercraft, this is the place. Bonus for dog... More

This was a nice stay. It was easy to find with a nice location and the beds were very comfy. I would like to have curtains on the windows because the louvered shutters let in a lot of light. Also I did not know where to leave the keys at checkout because the office doesn't open til 10:00 am

Great location right on the water, we ended up staying an extra day because we love the area and the place. Desiree was very nice and accommodating and went out of her way to make sure EVERYTHING was good. We will go back. Also great value!
