“Super Location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

Stayed here in April with my wife,father,and five year old daughter.The second we checked in, my daughter and I were reeling in fish one after another off the dock.The location is walking distance to several great restaurants as well as the marina which has split fishing charters 115.00 for four hours, dinner cruise boat, and several private charters. Staff is phenomenal and the views from the dock were priceless.Can't wait to go back!

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.
