The Boat House Motel
Ranked #1 of 12 Hotels in Marco Island
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 1, 2009

The Boat House is a small (20) room peaceful place that takes you back to a simpler time.It does not boast someof the amenities that chain style places do but to me that is the whole point. This is a family owned motel in which the owners treated us like family and not just customers. They were genuine and helpful and went out of there way to ensure that are stay was enjoyable.The rooms were clean and roomy. There website has virtual room tours for every room!! So you can view and even choose you room before you even arrive. Fishing charters and resturants are aroud the corner and the rest of Marco is just a few blocks away.

This a small, family owned motel located in Olde Marco that is reasonably priced and has a great view of the gulf. If you like fishing, watching the boats, dolphins and manatees go by, this is the place for you. Staff are friendly and helpful; rooms are spotless and reasonably priced. Though the pool is a bit small, there is a large deck overlooking the Marco River and Gulf. There a several restaurants within walking distance. Most visitors return once they find this gem of a spot!

I constantly have our guests frequent The Boat House Motel because its very well run. The rooms are kept clean, the boat slips are great places for our visitors to watch Marco's wildlife and peer out into the Gulf or the Marco River. The room rates are affordable and our friends, family and business colleagues who stay also enjoy the atmosphere. Well done and thanks for keeping the light on for us!

Recomended by a friend at the Marco Chamber of commerce as very nice and reasonably priced, I was not disappointed one bit. Desiree Bohelos, runs a tight little motel and deserves a good rave! At 1/2 the price of most of her neighbors, it's a deal!

We've stayed at the Boat House many times and each stay gets better and better. Relaxing by the pool, watching wildlife (manatees, dolphins, pelicans), or fishing from the dock. We really enjoyed watching the sunsets right from the motels patio. Several nice restaurants within walking distance and the staff was extremely friendly.

My husband and I were looking for peace and quiet. We had one of the condo units with a kitchen and deck for 4 days. We spent mornings on the deck watching the fishermen and boats, the day walking the many areas around Marco, and in the evenings we propped our feet up and watched the sunset. The experience was beautiful, peaceful and everything we were looking for. The unit was clean, the staff was very friendly, and the kitchen had everything we needed to cook simple meals. We will go back!
