I had several e-mail and phone interactions with the staff and management prior to making my reservations and received answers to my questions and concerns each time. The parking is very limited and I was hauling a 10 ft trailer so the managers, Bob and Diane, were very accommodating and went out of their way to help me locate a... More

Had a great 2 days here in the double room at the end of the pier. My 2 sons loved the fishing. There was also a pair of dolphins swimming in front of the pier while the other residents caught and fed them fish, which was priceless. Watching the sunrise and sunset from the balcony was also very memorable. Berts... More

This hotel was referred to us by friends. It's a key west themed hotel built on the water. The rooms are very comfortable. My family fished from the hotel and enjoyed our stay, we will go back! Thanks!

I've been to Florida quite a few times, but I will say this was my best trip yet! The Bridgewater Inn couldn't have been more accommodating and welcoming.

We rented this cottage for some friends of ours who visited us from California as we live in Matlacha. They found the cottage (which is across the street and down just a bit from Bridgewater Inn) to be cute, very clean, well equipped with an awesome view. They enjoyed drinking early morning coffee while looking over the peaceful waters of... More

We originally booked the Bridgewater for one night, but ended up staying for three - that alone should give an indication of the appeal of the hotel and of Matlacha itself. Bob and Diane, with help from Martha and another lady who's name I didn't get, create a warm, welcoming and helpful atmosphere. The rooms have such lovely decor, with... More

We stayed here three nights and had such a fabulous time. If you like to fish, relax and watch the world go by on the water, this is your place. We fished right outside of our three patio doors! The room was very clean, spacious and quiet. We could walk to shops, bars and restaurants. The views were spectacular and... More

At first glance the inn may appear a little small, however the rooms are very spacious and comfortable - our room included and coffee maker, kitchenette and kitchen table which was convenient. The view is breathtaking. From our room we could see out into the inlet where I kid you not the dolphins come and play and fish for HOURS!... More

Needed a place to stay one night while fising with a guide in Matlacha. I chose Bridgewater, based on location, and reviews. Nice clean place, with a sparkling young lady at the front desk.The room was large with a complete kitchen, and coffee to get you started the next morning. The mattress seemed to have internal springs of some sort,... More
