This little pier hotel is quaint, fun and so magical. We spent 3 nights there (suite 2) is worth the extra money! Huge fish right off pier. The room was clean & manager was so helpful! The pier is a few doors down from Bert's where the live music is a plus & we met the 92 yr old "mayor"... More

Booked this place after recommendation from Lonely Planet. When I phoned, there was only one room left and when I arrived, what a room it was! It was actually a small cottage, just down the street from the main motel and just next door to the friendly and helpful owners. The single story cottage was well appointed and comfortable and...

My husband and I stayed at Bridgewater Inn for our 15th anniversary. What a wonderful place to relax and fish!!! We could truly walk out our room and fish.

Matlacha is a place you likely haven't heard of, but is a must to see and the Bridgewater is the place to stay. The owners are really friendly and the rooms are all re-modeled and spotless. They have the perfect Caribbean flare to them. The little hotel sits right on the water, with beautiful water views just feet from your... More

My husband and I stayed at the Bridgewater Inn for a quick overnight get away. The owners/managers of the Bridgewater were friendly and helpful. Our room was clean and comfortable, and the hotel was within walking distance to shops and restaurants. Matlacha and the Bridgewater Inn are perfect if you are looking for a quiet place with Old Florida Charm.

We come to Matlacha when we want to take a "breather" from the "real world". We stay at the Bridgewater Inn because of the owner/managers.

The Bridgewater Inn is not a fancy resort, it does not have amazing amenities, the soap is Cashmere Boquet ( an old fashioned soap from motels of years gone by), but if you are looking for the old Florida experience, this is the place for you .
