The Boat House Motel
Ranked #1 of 12 Hotels in Marco Island
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed November 16, 2011

Desiree was most helpful on arrival. The room was very spacious and clean. It was lovely to come back after a day out to sit on the deck looking over the water. Weather was excellent when we stayed in mid November. Marco island is a lovely place and this motel is conveniently situated for several good restaurants. Tiger tail beach is superb. Lots to do ie boat trips, Everglades etc. I highly recommend it to you especially if you are a nature lover as there are plenty of birds and wildlife to see.

Just returned from my 2nd stay at the Boat House and once again had a great stay!
Little mixup with my original room, but Desiree put me in another room that even had a better view of the water. Rough weather this past weekend, but still was able to fish and enjoy the local happenings.

Thanks again! We'll be back in March!

Just spent a long weekend at this motel and it was just great. The location was great because you had a dock right on the river and Dolphins, Manatee's swam by and you can fish right off the dock as well as clean the catch and cook it right there. High rises on the beach are good as well but all you have is the beach. At the Boat house you have so much more and you can get to the beach. You can rent a boat, jet ski or kayacks on the Island and then dock them at the Boat House for your stay, Is that cool or what!!! I'll be back

Room Tip: They have a King bed room and a guest house you can rent

We went to visit the in-laws and needed a place to stay. We normally stay at time shares which most of the time are 5 star so going to a Motel was a new concept. We were very pleasantly surprised. For the price it was a very good deal. Though it was a little rough with the shower ceiling needing work and the towels being alittle weathered the room was large thoughthe window shades could have been darker, the shower water pressure was awesome, the bed comfortable and the tv good. We sat on the dock and drank and had appetizers one night to a great sunset. Another day we fished off the dock andhad a great time. Another couple pulled in on their boat. it has a small pool that did the trick and everyone we dealt with was nice and helpful. I would definately recommend this place and go back

Room Tip: There are end units that we didn;t stay in, butlooked awesome.

We just spent a long weekend at The Boat House Motel on Marco Island. We've stayed at the high rise hotels on Marco but you can't beat the location and service provided by this family owned business. It was clean, convenient to restaurants and the pool and dock area are right on the inlet and just steps from your room. Manatees and dolphin greet you in the morning and the evening sunsets are great from here. We highly recommend this quaint place that still knows the meaning of pleasing the customer.

Room Tip: Select one of the rooms with balcony overlooking the water for a great view.

Having to travel quite frequently on business and staying at the typical chain hotels the Boat House offers the business traveler a relaxing stay. You can enjoy fishing at the dock or simply check out the Manatee that maybe in the area. Either way it is a great place to mix business and get some pleasure out of it. Truly an enjoyable place. Great place to bring the family!
The hospitality that the owner provides is exceptional I felt like part of the family. The accomodations are great with the entire facility being up to date.

Room Tip: Get an upstairs room and enjoy the view from the balcony.
