First stay and ready to come back! It was our first time at Marco Island, and we fell in love with this paradise, in great measure because The Boat House is THE perfect lodging for such a beauty. We love the room size and setting, and the romantic private porch! Sunrise becomes a feast for the senses every morning at...

Second extended stay at the Boathouse and will certainly return again. Small family run no-fuss no frills, just a delightful tranquil setting that is also a short drive from the attractions of downtown and Tigertail Beach. Desiree should be declared a "National Treasure" as she makes you feel very much like a part of an extended family, really keen to...

The room has a king bed, a queen bed, and a single bed. There is also a small fridge, private porch, and a table to eat at. There is a small pool and a great dock for fishing and enjoying the view. Great location and unbelievable price. Family owned and very friendly.

We have stayed at the Boat House for several years now. I can't even describe how wonderful the "staff" are, they treat you like family (which is why I don't like using the word "staff"). They have always been extremely flexible as well. They've let us check in early and one time we had to cancel our rooms at the...

It is a quaint little place that has the perfect views. Very comfortable, and the owner is very accommodating. Fishing off the dock was perfect! Would definitely return! You can't ask for a better place to stay. Not only were we happy, but met people that said it was the place on the island to stay. We were married on...

My husband and I live in Fort Myers and took a long weekend in Marco. We stayed at the Boat House Motel and it was just wonderful! The staff was so friendly and everyone made you feel at home. We stayed in room 19 and it was so clean and comfortable. I am a property manager so I look for...

Despite the unassuming exterior, the rooms were surprisingly nice and very affordable—especially for Marco Island. We stayed in a king room, which had a kitchenette, dining table, living area, full bath with large sink and vanity counter separate from the toilet and tub. You can fish right off the dock in the back, and there's also a small swimming pool....

Was able to give this average rating because I got average value for my 2 night $115 total stay including taxes stay in what I thought would be interesting location -- Marco Island. Turns out if one is NOT boating/fishing, Marco Island is a rather featureless place jam-packed with housing/hotels/condos. Its nothing more than suburbia with almost no land set...
