The room was clean and comfortable, and had all the essentials. This was our 3rd visit and as always the owners and staff were very personable and accommodating.

My daughter (24), son(17) and I took a unexpected trip to Marco Island. We had heard of the Boat House Motel and called for a reservation. They were very accommodating and personable. We had a room with small fridge and table. Close to the pool and bay area. It was beautiful and peaceful. Just the thing we needed to relax... More

We were on a road trip and staying in different motels and this was by far the niceset we stayed in for cleanliness & location. The motel has a private pool and jetty which are lovely to watch the sunsets from. It is nice and quiet and It felt like a safe area. A bit more expensive than your average... More

My girlfriend and I stayed here in Feb., as my parents have a condo next door. Our room was huge, and the place is right off the water so the breeze is great. You get amazing sunsets every night from that spot. The dock is great for relaxing, watching the dolphins come by, and an occasional manatee sighting. There are... More

This was wonderful find at last minute. What a delight! These old style 2 story motels are great and so was the price. I honestly would have been staying at the lower priced interstate hotel but found this on Trip Advisor. This is not the Ritz but a clean place to rest your head . We were lucky to see... More

IF you are looking for very comfortable and AFFORDABLE accomodations AWAY from the ponderous and people packed high rise condos... check out The Boat House online. Located in Olde Marco, this property gives a great feeling of privacy and is near several good restaurants. While it is not on a beach, the view of the Marco Rver is striking from... More

This is a wonderful, friendly little motel that is well kept, clean and in a great location. The owners are extremely helpful and nothing is too much trouble. The rooms are spacious, clean and well appointed and we loved the deck on the inlet where you can sit with your beer at sunset and watch manatees and dolphins swim and... More

We stayed 4 nights in #18...A King Room that was spacious, clean, well kept. It was evident that the owners take great pride in their motel. High points- the space /quiet of the room, sitting on the dock watching dolphins play, osprey, herons, and pelicans land, the sun rise and set, and staying within walking distance of great restaurants and...
