The Boat House Motel

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 12 June 2014

We spent one night at the Boathouse Motel. The patio is the perfect place to watch the sunset. We even saw a dolphin swimming by. The staff is very friendly, the rooms are cozy and there is free parking available closeby.

We checked in last minute, the owner was very nice and helpful. Let us see the rooms before we paid. The motel is clean and updated, although the motel itself is quite old, it is quaint. Would definitely stay again.

First off thank you for taking the time to write such a wonderful review about our little Motel. Although our Motel is an older building it is part of historic Olde Marco and in the bigger picture Old Florida, in one sense our motel is a gem! We take pride in the roots of which our Motel was erected from and we love the history and age behind it!

We would love to see you again and until next time we wish you happy and safe travels!

I had the good fortune of finding The Boat House Motel on Marco Island, FL recently. In need of a boat accessible, pet friendly, reasonably priced place on short notice, I stumbled upon a gem in The Boat House. Clean, roomy and comfortable only begins to describe my room there and an extremely helpful staff made what began as an impromptu stop, a great time for me and my party. Close by are shops and restaurants, but still very quiet and private for those wishing to not be disturbed. Located in Olde Marco, this place is fantastic, and special thanks to Claudine who made it all possible.

We just returned from another fabulous Memorial Day Weekend on Marco. While we could stay at any hotel on the island, we always chose The Boat House Motel. There is something special about this place, nothing fancy, just right. The rooms are always clean and comfortable and our boat is docked just outside our room with quick access to everything. Often we stay in the upper room on the end because of the amazing view. This time we stayed on the first floor unit #8 that allows pets. It is a large lovely room with an additional queen size bed, just perfect for a family and a pet. We look forward to our stay here every year and this year did not disappoint. We happy houred at Snook in each evening and visited Capri Fish House and Little Bar on Goodland for dinner, both fabulous meals. We ate breakfast at Susie's every morning. Thank you for another great stay Nick & Desiree, we love your place.

We really enjoyed our stay. It was only for a few days but it was very comfortable, clean and convenient. People very helpful and friendly. We've stayed on Marco before in some of the high rise hotels and this place was much nicer!

We had fishing trip planned and stayed 2 nights.The room was small but very clean with mini fridge and coffee maker( no coffee.. FYI) we fished off the dock at night and enjoyed the beautiful and quiet evening
.Not a fancy place, but just what we needed and a great price! we walked to the Snook Inn and had dinner, other restaurants in walking distance also.I would recommend this to anyone looking for a casual, clean, pleasant room.

Room Tip: we stayed on ground floor near office, it was nice, clean,but no balcony or view. They do have rooms...
