The staff were friendly from beginning to end. When I called to make the reservation the staff were great. When we checked in, they were informative and friendly. I was checking in late and they made the accomodation for this. The room was clean and neat, and comfortable. I had a King and two twin beds. The bathroom was comfortable,...

We were so happy to find the Boat House Motel. We had originally planned to save some money and stay at chain hotel in Naples to use our points. We stayed one night and decided we wanted to be on Marco Island. I looked online and found The Boat House Motel with many good reviews. I called and they had...

Well the weather didn't help (first rain for months apparently) but our Marco Island stay was disappointing. The motel was looking a bit tired and the pictures were deceptive as only the very end 2 rooms had any view of the water/dock - otherwise all you could see were car parks. 2 mugs but nothing else in the room. Needs...

Left Indianapolis on a cold winter morning, three hours later we were sitting on our deck, over the water, at the Boathouse motel. Wonderful accommodations and terrific staff made for a wonderful vacation experience. Jack and Jo

Robert and Jane S Had a great time at the Boathouse Motel in Marco Island Florida. A family owned motel business located in the old Marco. A great value with very friendly staff and extremely clean rooms. Very quiet and comfortable with a great deck overlooking the water. An older building but I would recommend it to anyone. Great location...

We've stayed at this motel many, many times and just love it. The rooms are clean and bright and the view from the deck is wonderful. We've seen dolphin, manatees and several types of birds while enjoying the view of the water. We'll be back again next year!

Compared to the other very expensive hotels on the island, the Boat House is a great value for the dollars we spent. Claudine and her able crew were very accommodating to us during our stay. They went out of their way to have a room for us that fit our family of 5. The room was clean and the neighborhood...

Everytime we stay there the rooms are nice and clean. The location is prefect. It is very relaxing heated pools and close to the public beaches. We would visit again soon. The Boat House is in the Oldest, historical part of Marco. It's nice and quite.

Wish we could have gotten 2 nights. We had a darling room with a fridge and microwave. The heated pool and surrounding deck offered beautiful waterway views, much more relaxing than the public beaches with no amenities. We would come back to the sweetest, most affordable accommodations on the island just for the Boat House Motel, the fun of walking...
