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 a canal close to the Gulf. Its white facade and turquoise trim set the tone for units that are light and bright and furnished with blond woods, rattan, and tropical-print fabrics. 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, used 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.
