This hotel was very nice. The accommodations were excellent and the staff was very helpful. We loved listening to music and hanging out by the dock, extremly peaceful and relaxing. The location is perfect in old Marco.

This was the second time I needed a last minute room while on Marco Island. Both times I arrived after hours and used there house phone to connect with their front desk. The first time was after midnight. They are very gracious and welcoming. The place is spotless and comfortable. The last time we stayed we made our reservation during... More

We travel to Marco several times a year for business and always stay at the Boat House. We love it. Rooms are always very clean and the staff is very friendly. We always enjoy hanging out on the dock and watching the various birds and sometimes spotting dolphins. The pool is nice to relax in, we usually have it to... More

The Boat House is a great hidden gem. The owner is amazing and so nice and accommodating. The rooms were great and had plenty of room. There is a dock right next to the hotel and even a pool to cool down that is available all day long. Overall a great place to stay!!!

I stayed here with some friends over NYE. I can't give a nice enough review of the location, staff, and room itself. Upon arrival, we were greeted like we lived there. The manager on staff gave us a room key to check out the room and approve before we accepted it! She was that concerned about our satisfaction with our... More

My experience at this motel (if that's what you wish to call it) was phenomenal! Period. Everything from the owner to the quality of the rooms far exceed all expectations! Spacious rooms, a pool, a dock on site with a great view at night. I'd recommend this establishment to my mother...seriously!

A few of my friends and I flew in for a New Year's Eve wedding on the beach in Marco Island. Our other staying arrangements fell through, so we were searching as we were driving into Marco Island for a place to stay that day. Needless to say, everything was booked and people were laughing and nearly hanging up the... More

We stayed at the Boat House for 2 nights between Xmas and New Years, while exploring the area. It was pretty much as I expected, an old style Florida motel, with lots of charm and very friendly staff. The best part is the location, right on the water and with lots of restaurants within walking distance.

The quaint Boat House Motel is in a historic part of Marco, so therefore, we saw an area we had not experienced before. I cannot say enough about the fabulous staff here.
