“Enjoyed our quick stay !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

We enjoyed our quick over night stay. The location was perfect for us... we were traveling by boat. The front desk staff was very nice... Claudine? Enjoyed going out on the dock at night and a wonderful sunset. We would stay there again. =-)

Great place , service is awesome ! Rooms are big and always clean , very clean. Situated near the legendary snook inn casual restaurant bar and Bistro solei fine dining at the Old Marco Inn. Great bang for your buck ! Strongly recommend the Boat House :)

The front desk staff go above and beyond any other for anything you might need, or questions you have. The rooms were spotless, compliments to housekeeping for their attention to detail. And the location is in a quiet area with a great spot on the river. Will be back over and over again.

My Fiance and I stayed here because the Marriott where our friends were getting married was extremely pricey! We knew we wouldn't be spending a lot of time in our room so we weren't too worried about the rooms. We were happily surprised with this hotel. The room was quite big and clean. The location is great to sit on the dock and look a the water. The staff was really nice. Would definitely stay here again!

My husband has actually been coming here for about fifteen years for fishing. Only for the last three or four years have we now been coming with our kids. We love this motel! It is quiet, very clean and the staff are all super nice! We love to come for fishing off the docks at night. We have made this a must family trip at least twice a year now and never stay anywhere else!

Room Tip: They have pet friendly rooms and non pet friendly. A must if you have allergies.

Unable to find a pet sitter, my husband and I had to find a place to stay on Marco Island with our two 80 pound golden retrievers. Not an easy order to fill as most hotels & motels have weight limits. The Boathouse was recommended by another hotel and what a great tip it was. This is old Florida style hospitality in a nicely kept two story building on the inner waterway. Very convenient to restaurants & bars with a nice little pool and a chilled back atmosphere. It's not fancy, but for the price the rooms are very clean & comfortable with good beds and really all you need. Oh, and did I mention how pet friendly they are! Our boys were allowed to stay in the room alone so we could go out to take care of business. They keep a list of pet friendly restaurants & other pet friendly spots in your room so we were able to enjoy eating out with our pets along. I'm not sure we've ever enjoyed such and overall pet friendly experience. We've had to return two more times in the last month and we're so glad we found this simple little gem. If your not looking to stay on the beach and want a priced right, clean, good place to stay, this is a great choice.

First stay and ready to come back! It was our first time at Marco Island, and we fell in love with this paradise, in great measure because The Boat House is THE perfect lodging for such a beauty. We love the room size and setting, and the romantic private porch! Sunrise becomes a feast for the senses every morning at the gorgeous dock. Brandie (Hope the name is correctly spelled!) is all smiles and makes one feel a VIP guest. Housekeeping staff a plus. Location is unique, price is right, ambiance is charming, views are fantastic. It's Marco Island Best Kept Secret! The Boat House is a must for an unforgettable vacation!

Room Tip: All rooms are perfect!
