Love the boat house! Very clean and right on the water in old Marco! Great location for great restaurants and Snook inn! The management helped me out in an emergency situation which was over and above! We'll be back!

We've stayed at the Boat House several times, and always enjoy it. The staff are very friendly and accommodating, the rooms are spacious and clean, and the location is great. We like to spend time on the dock watching the birds and fish.

With hectic days, we always look forward to a comfortable, clean room and a quiet night. We unwind while watching fish in the spotlights off the deck. Usually we enjoy solitude with only fish and quietly passing boats, and the occasional croak of a bird. It's a nice way to end the day, and so nice to experience at The...

We are so happy when our guests get the opportunity to experience the quiet and solitude our dock area provides. We have long hectic days too and there is just something about sitting quietly at days end that is good for the soul. Thank you for your kind words and we hope to see you again in the future.

The room was spacious and nice. We had an outside patio which was nice too. This motel is right on the water and it was so fun to sit out back at the large outside area. We saw dolphins playing and watched the boats go by. The staff was very pleasant. we would definitely stay here again.

Weekend get-away with my fiance. She picked the boat house, and we got the room with a balcony over the water. It was awesome. Clean, comfortable, bright, quiet, and for a great price. Nice view of the channel and sland. Saw some people fishing off the dock. Definitely will visit again.

We found Marco Island an expensive vacation place, especially when compared to other Florida Gulf coast locations, Naples, Venice Sarasota etc. Holiday accommodation being one of our major spends, we looked for value for our meagre pound. We had stayed at the Boat House some years previous so,we knew what to expect. It did not disappoint, basic in its appearance,...
