The Boat House Motel is a great family own and managed motel tucked away on the north side of the island. We had room #11 which faces out to the water from the second floor. From our private balcony you can see the early fishing boats going out to the Gulf of Mexico, and during the afternoon the beautiful sunset.... More

Personable staff; we truly enjoyed the stay. Ultra-clean (King-Size) room. All in all, a real nice time. Nice break from the surrounding impersonal condos - best kept secret indeed!

My fiancee' and I just had an absolutely wonderful experience at the The Boat House Motel on Marco. We met the owners who could have not been more sweet and were genuinely concerned with the comfort and enjoyment of our stay. Our waterfront room could have not been more beautiful and the decor of the room was absolutely georgous. Also,... More

Great small motel - very clean and quiet. On the Peace River with a small pool and large deck with boat docks. We have stayed here before and know what to expect - a family run operation that is a good bargan for the price. This is not a fancy over-priced chain hotel...but one that satifies those looking for water... More

just got back from a 4 day stay at the BoatHouse Motel staying at the Gazebo House. The actual motel was completely empty which was great because we had the pool to ourselves. The pool is small but we used it everyday around "happy hour" with cocktails in hand and it was perfect for cooling off. The Gazebo House was... More

I've stayed here before. I really like the welcome goodie bags they leave for you. They have multiple beds for children and guests in the rooms. It's right on the water with a pool and dock. The owners are really nice and very friendly. What I love the most is you can bring your pets. No need to leave them... More
