Great spot for a night or a week. Very friendly and helpful staff. Rooms are clean, spacious and functional. Would rather have been visiting for vacation but needed to overnight on a work trip. Spent the early morning working from the inviting deck, with wireless access and beautiful views out over the water. Recommend this place for a group of... More

This place is great, very intimate, quiet, and secluded, and Marco Island is well above average in South Florida... Owner is very hands on, and needs to be sure you're comfortable... Hang by the pool, head to the beach, shop or check out the good food, Su's Garden has nice Chinese...

We were traveling back from Key West on motorcycles with friends and decided to stay in Marco Island but did not have any idea of where, we didn't want a high rise hotel so we went on line and and called The Boat House Motel just because we liked the name. We got there and What an AWESOME surprise, Clean... More

My husband and I went to Marco Island on business in August. We made our reservations before hand for room 11 (nice water view). When we arrived our room was not available due to repairs so the owners put us in one of the condos (at no extra charge). WOW!! Awesome space. Water front. Although the property is labeled a... More

This was a last minute booking which my husband and I made during our trip from Everglades City to Naples. The room was clean but smelt a bit musty like it hadn't been used for a while. The motel is a little bit out of the way for restaurants and shops and would recommend this motel if you have a... More

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!
