This was our second visit to the Boat House - we enjoyed it so much last year that we returned with two friends. The beauty of this place is the location - a substantial decking area where you can sunbathe, sit in the shade, enjoy a drink or a picnic. Even more importantly, if

Great "old Florida" feel with all the amenities of a chain hotel. No beach but there are several great public beaches a short drive from motel, as well as restaurants and shopping. With fridge and microwave you can grocery shop for lunch and snacks but splurge on a nice dinner

We appreciate your detailed list of pros! As far as your list of cons, we will take them with a grain of salt, or perhaps a chip of paint since you wrote the exact same negative point for another hotel in our area, specifically "The water closet was so small that the door barely closed in front of the toilet and you needed to scoot to the side in order to close the door" which leads us to believe the size of the bathroom may not be the problem. Anyhow, thanks for your input and we wish you safe and happy future travels.
