“Special experience at Boat House Motel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013 via mobile

We found this place online, and decided it was good accomodation for us to experience Marco Island for the first time. It was super friendly and clean and such a lovely position to watch the boats and the dolphins pass by. We really enjoyed our 2 day visit and really didn't want to leave.

Stayed November 2013, traveled as a couple

The Boat House is one of the older properties on Marco Island so it has a charm the newer places are missing. Our room was on the ground floor, just as requested. It was very clean with bedding and interior decoration appropriate to the motels vintage.
Since we are retired on a fixed income price was a concern. The Boat House was far cheaper than other motels on the island. Their pool was not as large as others but it was clean and well maintained. Fishing docks were near to the pool so family members can see each other.
Members of our extended family live on Marco Island so we will book a room at the Boat House for future visits.

Very nice clean rooms....walls can be a little thin at times if you are a light sleeper. Good Amenities and family run...very friendly. Nice clean pool... Satisfied customer. Good rooms at half the price of other places in Marco Island.

The owners and their staff were so nice and friendly. The room was clean and it had everything I needed. They made my stay on Marco Island the greatest vacation ever! They were always courteous. They even checked to make sure I always had everything that I needed. I can always tell if a person is genuine or full of it, and the people here were genuine. I really think they honestly cared about me and my stay here! If I am ever asked where the best place to stay on Marco Island is, I will have to say The Boathouse Motel. If needed to know the best entertainment or where the grocery store was, they made sure I found my way. Wonderful and exceptional people. Thank you for giving me the best vacation ever!


Sincerely,
Michael W Deese

I have been coming to Marco Island for years and have always stayed at a time share. This time, I had only a few days to relax and searched around for a hotel/motel. The Boat House proved to be the most reasonable without giving up the comfort.For a quiet getaway, this is truly the place to stay. It's close to restaurants, shopping and the beach, yet one feels away from it all. The manager and staff are friendly, helpful, yet appreciate one's privacy. The room was clean, the pool delightful and the view, romantic, especially at night.

Tucked away on a quiet street, very low key, nice view, clean rooms, friendly owners, a hidden jewel! They have a great dock, small but nice, very clean pool. You can BBQ, fish or walk over to Snooks for a delicious meal & a great view. A great place to getaway. Close to all of our favorite things on Marco Island. Love this place.

Friendly staff, quaint and charming clean rooms. Beautiful views, nice large dock on the water.

Walk to the world famous Snook Inn. My family and I have been staying here for many, many, years. Highly recommended for a weekend or a week.
