Fodor's Review

For a great location at a good price, check into this modest, but appealing, two-story motel at the north end of the island on the Marco River, close to the Gulf. Its white facade and turquoise trim set the tone for the clean units, most of which have been recently updated and decorated with their own individual style. King-size rooms have a balcony or walled-in terrace, and some have great water views. You can arrive by boat and dock at the hotel or, if coming by land, use the dock as a fishing pier.

Great Place to Stay in Southwest Florida

The Boat House Motel is a Southwest Florida gem! Sitting right at the waters edge with great views of the Gulf & Marco River. Boat slips are available and fishing off the docks cannot be any better. Wild life such as Osprey, Pelicans, Dolphins & even Manatees can be seen. Great shopping & excellent restaurant's are within walking distance. Owner's Nick & Desiree and their friendly staff provide a great vacation spot for both families and couples.
