It's a great place to stay! Is it the Ritz? No - It's clean close to everything that you want to see and do in the area. If your into fishing it's great! They went out of their way to assist in anyway they could. I would go back in a heart beat.

Writing this review a little late. Stayed here August 2014, but feel this place deserves an excellent review! Planned this trip as a last get together for my sons friend who was leaving for the Air Force. We had rooms 2,5,5b,6 and 8. ALL rooms were super charming and very comfortable. The boys enjoyed being able to fish right outside... More

I Recently had the pleasure of staying at the Bridgewater Inn in Malach, Fla. I loved the uniqueness and charm if this Inn. Built on piling, you have views of Dolphins, beautiful birds and manatees right outside your door. If you love to fish, throw your rod right out side your hotel door! No worries if you forget your rod.... More

Just home from our first stay and can hardly wait to go back. It's not fancy, but very comfortable and clean. Owners Bob and Diane are hands-on and will go out of their way to make your stay perfect. Watched the dolphins and the color changes of the water. Great restaurants and shops in easy walking distance.

What an amazing place! So laid back! Relax on the deck while watching the dolphins and being taken care of by amazing hosts Bob and Diane! Everyone wants to walk out on the docks here and check it out even the fishermen want a piece of the action here that's why the management has to watch out for people trespassing... More

First off my wife and I fish and hunt. We have a smaller sized boat perfect for the shallow waters inside these islands. Two years ago that was my main draw to Bridgewater Inn as I could keep my boat tied right at door and hop in to fish at will for our week's stay. After doing months of map... More

First and foremost we liked the staff. I picked this place on the reviews as well as the owners’ website, but things are not really as they appear. We had the famous corner suite 3 for our stay and we could not wait to leave. The photographs must have been taken years ago when everything was newly furnished, painted and... More

Excellent fishing right outside our door. Awesome office staff. We stayed 4 nights here and we loved the fishing and the area. We caught 2 red fish and had 1 fillet by the fish market across the street then cooked by the restaurant next door to the motel. While at the restaurant we mentioned to out waitress that we had...

Our stay was exactly what we were looking for; quiet, clean, and a great place to fish, chill and relax.
