“Island Heaven”
Reviewed May 14, 2008

This is a wonderful place to relax and enjoy the island. The motel and condos are spacious, clean and comfortable The scenery of the Marco River is the best, from the traveling boats to the dolphins that come right up to the fishing dock. The management is caring and most accomodating.

This is one of our favorite get-away spots.

We stayed at The Boat House Motel week of April 26,27,28,29 2008 and we had a blast.

We saw manatee and dolphins swimming right in front of
the dock. It was so relaxing to just sit on the dock and watch the
boats go bye!!!!

We had the best vacation ever. Very quite and peaceful!!! Could not
have asked for anything better. Thank you to The Boat House Motel!!!!!

My friends and I stayed at the boathouse motel on the weekend of April 19th 2008. We have been taking this trip every april for the last 10 years and its always a great time. On this trip our regular hotel was booked so we tried the Boat House Motel- what a mistake... We had 7 fishing rods stolen on friday evening and 2 of our fisherman left town to drive home because they were completely disgusted with the lack of security at the boathouse. I would highly recommend not staying here unless you enjoy getting your valuables stolen. Management was not helpful and simply told us if we werent happy with the lack of security we shouldnt come back and stay with them. This was disgusting we lost $4,200 in fishing equipment and they didnt feel responsible at all for their lack of security. Dont Go to the Boat House Motel....

I wanted to give a shout out to the staff at The Boat House Motel. They are incredibly kind, attentive and really understand the meaning of customer service. All of these attributes are becoming more rare these days. In addition to being an economical place to stay on Marco Island, the Boat House is clean and comfortable. I highly reccomend it.

We can't wait to go back. They were friendly; the rooms were clean and affordable! Loved it! I highly recommend it if you can't afford a huge hotel on the beach!

My mother and I were visiting family in Marco and were looking for an affordable place to crash. I found the Boathouse in the yellow pages and gave a call. The owner, Desiree, was so friendly we had to check it out. This place is so charming! It's right on the water and walking distance to quaint little cafes, shops, and the local hangout Snook Inn. It's the perfect peaceful getaway. I wish we could've stayed longer.
