My husband and I decided to do a loop of Florida on the motorcycle without specific destinations. I called the Boathouse on a whim on a Friday morning and learned they could accommodate a last minute check in. The location and cost was great. Any last minute reservations about staying in an unknown hotel was immediately gone after meeting Desiree and meeting guests who have been returning year after year and described this place as a "gem".
This is not the Hilton. It is better! It has the old Florida charm without all the fuss. Desiree was there to greet is with a cold beverage and a friendly smile. The rooms were clean and comfortable. There is a nice little heated pool and fishing dock on the river (be sure to bring bug spray). You are within walking distance to restaurants. There are several restaurants/bars that participate in free taxi service home. It is a great location.
If you are looking for luxury and all the amenities, than this place is not for you. If you are looking for a safe, comfortable and clean place to stay with old Florida style charm, then you will love this place. It is the type of place that you can return year over year.
Desiree, thank you for making this such a great experience! We will definitely be back with a few friends in tow! More
