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!

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
