YOU MUST TRY THIS GREAT LITTLE PLACE ! I booked this great little motel while in Miami. It's an old building but didn't feel it, with a freshly painted exterior. Easy to find. The room was airy and bright and clean. The bed was fine, even has a full size fridge. Free coffee in the mornings. I lost my cell... More

We were pleasantly surprised by the size of the King bed room we stayed in. It was also well appointed , and very clean. With a nice little balcony to bring the outdoors in, we enjoyed our stay very much! Kurig coffee service was a very nice touch too!

My husband and I spent our first trip to Marco Island this last week. We tend to stay away from big chain hotels and look for smaller family owned hotels. The staff could not have been friendlier, starting with the lady that took our reservation, to the lady that checked us out. The room was large with a nice kitchenette.... More

From the moment I walked in, it felt like a family owned and run business. We need more places like the Boat House Motel. Friendly front desk, extremely pleasant room, all those nice amenities in the bath, great parking and a very nice view. Conveniently located close to restaurants and shopping. I would give it a 10 on the 1... More

Recently remodeled room 12 is spacious with a two room setting. It has two beds, one full size refrigerator, a microwave, dishes with eating utensils, a coffee maker and mugs. The wet bar area does not have a sink. This is workable if you welcome washing your dishes in the bathroom sink. While this was workable for us, it was... More

The Boat House hotel fit the bill for a relaxing few days in beautiful Marco Island. Great views, quiet and secluded location, although it also has easy access to the Gulf beaches and town. The owners and all staff were extremely friendly. Rooms were spacious and very quiet. I will definitely stay here again!

My wife and I planned a one-night get away from a friend's home in central Florida (where we were staying while visiting from Massachusetts). We chose to drive out to Marco Island and find a place near the water where we could enjoy the evening. What we found was beyond our imagination! The price was less than we expected to... More

Nice quiet locale. Old building kept in great shape. Fresh paint, new gates, etc. Real nice sitting out on the piers at nite. Restful and quiet, yet within walking distance 2-3 restaurants. Only drawback, and its small one, is the WiFi. Its 2 bars and took us forever too bring things up. Easily fixed. We'd go back in a heartbeat.
