I have nothing bad to say about this motel. We have stayed here several times over the years. The room is clean, the pool is nice, and having our boat just a few steps away is great! The bed was comfortable and the A/C was nice and cold!!!

We stayed in the king room top floor. There was so much room it was lovely. Great view at night. Pool was nice and warm. Quiet hotel and in a nice location. We saw the Dolphins swim by the dock one night. They have a laundry room.

My husband and I have been staying at the Boathouse Motel for the last 20 years. We have stayed at the motel, in one of their condos and the Gazebo. This is a special place very unlike a chain establishment. The owners, Desiree and Nick, always make us feel welcome. Each unit is unique and spotless. The property has a large deck from which we can see dolphins every day. It also has boat docks and the fishing is great! In addition, it is located in Old Marco so there are many restaurants and shops within walking distance. Each year we look forward to our return to the Boathouse Motel and we are never disappointed!

Easy access to several eateries and shops.
Quiet location.
Great fishing off the dock
Comfortable sunbathing.

First off we would just like to express our true thankfulness for our loyal guests like you, who have come back to us time after time. Its guests like you who help us to improve our service to our guests.

When people think of “old Florida” they usually don’t think of Marco Island, but surprisingly Marco island is full of historical places and we are so thankful to be located right in the center of historic Olde Marco Island. Several restaurants surround us, including the Marco Island-famous Snook Inn and little shops scattered here and there. Our location in Olde Marco is truly a great blessing and you never get tired of the sights that surround us daily. And of course the dock is another great perk of our location, right in the middle of Olde Marco and right on the water.

Thank you for being such a loyal guest and we hope to see you again, until next time we wish you safe, exciting, and happy travels!

Glad we found this motel tucked away in the Old Marco area! Great location! We had a comfortable stay, owners were very friendly and want to make their guests happy. Best part is they allow dogs, a rarity on Marco! Excellent alternative to the very expensive resort hotels but close to everything. Will stay here again!

First off let us express our appreciation for taking the time to write such a lovely review about our motel. We truly take each and every review to heart and use it to reflect and improve on the experience each of our guests receives.

We are especially glad to hear that you commented on the fact that we do allow dogs, because we are one of the vey few motels/hotels on the island that do allow pets.

Our location is just another beautiful sights we were blessed with. We are located in Olde Marco just a few minutes walk from many of the “popular” spots on the Island to hang eat out at. We take pride in our location and the wonderful atmosphere we are surrounded by on the daily and we truly hoped that you enjoyed your stay and we hope to see you again soon!

Until next time, we wish you happy and safe travels!

The Boat House Motel is located at the tip of Old Marco where boats pass by the dock. It is reasonably priced, has a small pool, very clean, and just a stroll away from several good restaurants and little shops. I enjoyed the beauty of Marco Island without the traffic of midtown tourists, although it's only 3 or 4 minutes away. The owners are friendly and accommodating. I stayed six nights and felt at home.

Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a wonderful review about not only our motel but also our beautiful island we call home!

We are glad to hear that you thought that our hotel was accommodating in almost every standpoint. It is very important to us that our guests who stay with us are happy and feel right at home during their stay.

We also agree with your opinion of our location, right on the tip of Olde Marco on the water definitely has its perks including wonderful views of wildlife and boats from our dock to the tasty restaurants and cute little shops within walking distance from the motel itself.

So glad to hear that you had a wonderful stay with us and we hope to see you again soon!
