“Fantastic!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2008

This motel is super! It is probably the most inexpensive on the island, but also the CLEANIST!!!!! The owner, is so pleasant, anything we could have possibly needed was provided for us.
This is an old fashioned, small place with all the charm of "old" Florida. Right outside our door was a very nice pool and the nicest deck and docks to fish from. We caught quite a few snapper, but the sheepshead and jacks eluded us. I hooked something that was so strong, it broke my line but before it did, WOW did I have fun!
I definately recommend this place to anyone, (except maybe teenagers), since this is a very quiet area.
Thanks so much to Deseriee!

I stayed at The Boathouse with a friend before going to a meeting on Marco Island. The motel was clean, quiet, and very relaxing. We enjoyed walking to local restaurants and watching the dolphins play in the bay. The pool was clean and warm. Value for dollar this is the best place on the island!

We just returned from staying here over the Memorial Day weekend and stayed there in order to dock our boat. The view was amazing. The hotel is quaint and family owned, they were all very nice and concerned with making sure we were happy with everything. They have a great dock with grills and a heated pool, it is in a great location. Very close to many restaurants and cute little shops. Had a great time and am already looking forward to going back.

I just returned from a weekend stay at The Boat House Motel in Marco Island, Florida. The Motel was very clean and the staff, (Claudine) was very helpful with info that I requested. I would definitely refer this Motel to all of my friends and I would go back for a return visit.

We had an excellent stay at the Boat House motel the 4 nights we were in town. The location was very nice. It was very cool seeing all the different wildlife, dolphins, manatees, etc. overall I had no complaints with our stay and the price was very reasonable. Thanks

Agree with other reviews. This was a motel and nicely placed as a stopover for a day or so. Rooms were clean and large with vehicle able to be parked directly outside.

It's reception shuts at 4p.m. and open at 8a.m.

Marco Island is just that, an upper class residential area for second homes, swell restaurants but its small, small and dull except for the Marina where you can get chowder and hire boats.

If you want to get lost then just try driving around the many identical roads. Do not leave your vehicle on any of the roads. When you return it will not be there because property space is all.

There are two public beaches but you pay to park there. We left
quickly regretting not that we had booked and stayed at the Motel but that we had come to the Island at all because it was dull, dull, dull!.
