This quaint and original motel is tucked away in the quiet and peaceful town of Marco Island. Guests can enjoy the natural setting right across from the Rookery Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve, but still be close to the amenities of the town.

Our stay at BoatHouse Motel on Marco Island

I took two of our youngest fishing to Marco Island and the place where we stayed here was awesome. Very accommodating for the three of us! The office staff is wonderful. Nice place to fish off the docks, too! We even saw wild dolphins playing in the water! Highly recommend and close to Snook Inn Restaurant and the Marina!

Stayed in room # 7 a couple nights. Nice and close to water. Quiet here at night which is nice also. They don’t offer breakfast but do have coffee which I appreciated greatly. Staff is very friendly. The establishment has some rules you don’t usually encounter but nothing obnoxious by any stretch. Really a nice small room with just about everything you’d expect.
One of the best sites I know for capturing images of birds in flight

I've been staying at the Boat House Motel every time I'm near Marco Island since I first found it almost 13 years ago. It's location at the confluence of Marco Bay and Collier Bay make it an active site for a wide variety of birds, dolphins and manatees. The owners are delightful and the rooms are clean, tho' to be clear, don't expect the amenities of a Marriott. All that said, I'm sure as long as I can focus a camera, every time I'm back in the area, I'll be booking a room!

I was in town for two nights for a tradeshow. My team and I had a wonderful experience. It was very easy check in/out--our flight was delayed and we got in past 10:00 PM. The room/resport was clean with plenty of towels, working space, and overall the perfect place! I would definitely reccommend the Boat House in Marco Island.

The Boat House is NOT a cookie-cutter, plastic high rise hotel. It is 'old Florida' with class, comfort, and personal service. This family run hotel met and exceeded our expectations from check-in to checkout. The Boat House is an outstanding 'base' to explore Marco Island and the surrounding area. We will be back.
