I enjoyed my stay at he Boat House Motel. The owners were great and even provided us with a cold beer at check in. The room was clean, the bed comfy and the water pressure in the shower was awesome. There is no way I could have slept on the extra twin bed though, it was way to

We stayed a couple of nights here, and really enjoyed ourselves. We were looking for a good value in a nice area of the island. The Boat House was a good choice. It is definitely an old style motel with large rooms. Nothing fancy and no beach, but a nice pool area with lots

We found this location from the recommendation of locals. It turned out to be perfect for our visit. It is a small motel nestled among other facilities - a little hard to locate but worth the effort. Our room was SPOTLESS. The staff were accommodating and we had a more than

We stayed here for 6 nights and it was an ideal base. Rooms are clean and spacious, and walking distance to good restaurants (recommend Mareks & Lee Bee Fish). Location with the decking on the water is perfect to look for dolphins and my husband enjoyed fishing from the dock.

We stayed for 4 nights at The Boat House on Marco Island in February 2019. We were not interested in the big resorts on the coast, with tennis, golf, restaurants, room service, the works. If you are like us, you might really enjoy staying at the Boat House, which is in Old

Does the hotel have 2 bedroom suites?
They do not have two bedroom suites but the place is adorable and in a great location to sit and relax in the pool watching the boats go by. Nothing fancy but clean and people are nice. I went with a group of girlfriends for fun and we wanted to keep the cost down so we shared rooms with 4 of us and the rooms were huge and had multiple beds including a built in one in a cubby that was great and comfortable along with a pull out so there was plenty of room. The bedroom was towards the back with a king bed and there was a pull out bed on wheels in the closet that worked out great. Little Kitchen area was nice for preparing snacks, etc. Owners are very accommodating so I think this would work for a small family or couple friends as long as ok with one Bathroom. There was also a little patio area in the back fenced in and private which was cool with lounge chairs and table and chairs. Hope this helps !
