My family and I went for the Fourth of July weekend. We had previously stayed at the Boat House two years prior. What a surprise! Rooms have all been remodeled and upgraded. The property is in immaculate condition. The staff is amazing! Desiree is an exceptional person - she does everything she can to make guests feel right at home!... More

If only we had arrived! Unfortunately, we had a medical emergency en-route to the Boat House which was our choice of location for a Florida mini-break. Our cancelled reservation was handled in the most compassionate way imaginable by Deseret and her team. If this is an example of Boat House hospitality, we cant wait to make arrangements for the return... More

This is a really nice hotel. It's in a great location right on the waterfront. We sat in the evening having a beer and saw dolphins swim past whilst enjoying the sunset which was lovely.. The pool is a bit small but it's fine for cooling off in. The rooms are spacious and have everything you need. The bed was... More

First off, thank you for taking the time to write review about your stay with us. We are so happy to see that you enjoyed your stay! Since our building is older than most buildings on the island, we do not have central air, each air conditioner goes to only one room. We wish that you had told someone that... More

Always loved staying at the Boathouse Motel for our family vacations, but this year was even better with our first time staying in the Gazebo House. It was the perfect size for our family and the owners always make sure you are completely happy while you are there.

Super place. Peaceful. Very clean and friendly. Set on Dock and saw dolphins. We only planned 2 days there. We checked out then a couple hrs later called to see if we could stay another night. So we came back. Not fancy. Perfect. .

Room was open and very clean. Small fridge a microwave and coffee maker in room. Sink is located outside of bathroom so it was easy for... More

We recently stayed here during the week of 4th of July. The staff is amazing, rooms are spacious, and the view of the water outside your room is beautiful. I would not stay at any other place on Marco Island! The owners of the motel are two of the nicest people I have ever met and put so much work... More

We had the opportunity to stay here a couple of weeks ago and it was great. The rooms are very nice and clean with friendly staff. The motel is located in the old town part of Marco where it is nice and quiet and is within walking distance of some nice restaurants. We would definitely stay here again.

The staff was more than friendly and very helpful. The place was very clean and much larger than expected for the price. This place is a great value. We would definitely recommend the Boat House Motel to our friends and family.
