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

We enjoyed our clean, well appointed room and comfortable bed, sipping wine at sunset, watching the kids fish from the docks and walking to dinner. We are accustomed to staying in "known" chain hotels to avoid surprises but on Marco we feel that there is no better place or value than the Boat House. We just loved that "old Florida" feel and felt completely secure leaving our valuables in the room while it was cleaned (not something I can say for the chains).

This motel is one of the best bargins on Marco Island. The room we stayed in was a tad small for 2 adult fishermen; however, it was the least expensive room with one queen bed and one day bed. The room was clean and quiet with a frig, TV and coffee maker. There is a small swimming pool and a large deck area with boat dock. The fishing is pretty good right off the dock. It's a short walk to some very nice restaurants and a short drive to downtown.

We went to this place waiting for peace, relaxation, beautiful views and a wonderful night, and we got all that. Great service, the room was very comfortable and spacious, what ever you need is in less than 10 min, is located where you could look the sunset and that give us a great moment, we don't get any trouble, so all what i have to say is go there a have a good experience

Very friendly owner who always greets you with a smile and makes you feel welcome. She is always available 24 hours a day should you have a problem. Choose room No 1 if you like looking for dolphins from your kings sized bed. Very clean and tidy rooms and motel in general. Swimming pool and deck area are very clean and tidy. Parking is easy and loads of room. Lovely setting to sit and watch the world go bye on the Marco River with a beer in one hand.

I entered Marco Island over the bridge from the mailand and headed toward 'The Boathouse' which is situated toward Olde Marco - the oldest part of the Island which is also the most magical. There are some great bars and restaurants in the Olde marco area within walking distance of the Boat House. So its location was something that immediately impressed me - i was heading to an Island for a relaxing peaceful vacation - here i found it, surrounded by palm trees, in a great location on the water with easy access to the Gulf by boat and with the sun setting directly in front of the dock - i dont think you could get a better location on the island. My room was very clean, spacious and comfortable and well maintained and there is a real homely atmosphere about the place from speaking with the owners who are about through the day who wanted to make sure we had every thing we wanted to the intimate, relaxed aura that the building posses. At night there are several restaurants and bars within walking distance which are also hidden gems on the island. We also would cater for ourselves and eat on the dock, watching the sunset and the family/pod of Dolphins that play just feet away from the dock. I would recommend The Boathouse to absolotely anyone wishing to visit Marco Island, especially if you are heading to the Island for peace, tranquility, fishing, sunsets or a general relaxing break.

Small family run motel. Stayed in a clean, spacious Queen room with fridge and wi-fi connection. There's a small pool with a large pool deck and boat slips. Pool and beach towels were provided. Stand on the dock and watch the dolphins feed only a few feet away. Lovely spot at a reasonable price. They even had wireless printing capabilities! Owners are attuned to their guests needs and wants. We'll be back!

This is just a really nice place to stay. I really don't like the BIG Hotel seen. Most of the guest are repeat customers, like my wife and me. If you like a quite place to stay this is it.
They have a nice dock to fish from and BBQ grills to cook your catch. The owners and staff are just wonderful. I can't wait to get back to Marco Is.

P.S. I almost don't want to recommed this place ,but that would be selfish
