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...

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...

Second extended stay at the Boathouse and will certainly return again. Small family run no-fuss no frills, just a delightful tranquil setting that is also a short drive from the attractions of downtown and Tigertail Beach. Desiree should be declared a "National Treasure" as she makes you feel very much like a part of an extended family, really keen to...
