Our first trip (wife and I) to Marco Island won't be our last for sure. We had a couple days left of Christmas Vacation so we drove down to Marco Island and the Boathouse Motel. It was a last minute idea and I wasn't sure anything would be available. We also wanted to do some biking around the island. The...

We were happy to be able to accommodate you for your last minute adventure to Marco! Thank you for taking the time to share your opinion with the travel community. We agree that the balcony view from room 12 is a bit cluttered by progress. Maybe next time stay in Room 11 which has an unobstructed view of the river...

This is one of the island's "older ladies: of motels on the island. Incidentally, the ONLY pet friendly one on the island. The placed is well kept and very clean. It is in the old village area with easy access to all the other areas on the island. The staff were professional and polite. Only drawback was the very high...

A true lady never reveals her age, but suffice it to say we were here way back when they were building the Marriott!Thanks for staying with us and we appreciate your input regarding the bed height. We are working on a solution and hope you will come and stay with us again. P.S. We love "fur balls"!!

Pleasantly surprised with the spaciousness of our room, the location, and comfort of the bed. It is family owned and operated which we like to support when possible. The owner was very helpful and friendly. The short walk to a cafe, a tapas bar, and a bayside restaurant was nice.

What a gem! The room was HUGE and so clean. Comfortable amenities and a great location on the water and walkable to Snook Inn but away from the huge resorts. Super nice touches like microwave, fridge and Keurig machine. We will be back that is for sure!

We had a very comfortable room, spacious room. We had never been to Marco Island and were happy to discover it is very close to the Snook Inn which we hoped to visit.

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.
