The Boat House

Recent guest reviews

So here's the grind with the Boat House, it happened that I arrived around 1:30 (instructions for check-in state that it's between 3-4, but the receptionist stated that "hey no problem I'm here until 6 anyhow"), I left my baggage at the front desk because the room was not ready - understood no problem! However, when I came back around 4:30 or so, the room still was not ready, the receptionist stated that it would be ready in about 15 minutes, lo and behold I was finally able to get into the room at 5:55. The house keeper was working very hard to get the room ready, but said she was working alone and that it would be a little while yet. I truly felt bad for this lady as she was working really hard to meet expectations, but again she was all alone. The real question is that the hotel was not fully occupied, why didn't the receptionist assign another room? Also, how does the owner, Desiree, not offer some sort of compensation for the inconvenience (we couldn't even use a bathroom)? Overall I loved the Boat House, it's a little old and run down, but for the price on Marco Island in season it is fairly priced. Please do not avoid staying at the Boat House based on this review, my hope is that this was simply an anomaly! Enjoy Life!
