We stayed in the large corner suite at the Bridgwater Inn and enjoyed the views, the fishing from the deck outside our room, and the atmosphere there. We have stayed there the last two years and always have a great time. The managers there are friendly and helpful, and were able to answer pretty much all of our questions.

There's simply no reason to give the Bridgewater Inn anything other than the highest praise. No, it's not a luxurious 5 Star All Inclusive resort. But if that's what you're looking for, then don't come to Matlacha. The Bridgewater is a small cozy motel on the water that sits at the base of the Matlacha Bridge. The rooms are clean,... More

Bridgewater in has hot and cold running charm. If you want to see dolphins playing , catch fish 5 steps out of your room, watch sunsets from the bridge next door…then this will work for you.

My family stayed here for 2 nights to allow my husband and son some fishing time. Rooms were clean and comfortable, and the fishing was great right off the dock. In spite of being right off a busy road, the traffic noise did not bother us and there were a few places to settle in with a book and enjoy... More

My wife and I stayed at Bridgewater the last week of February. We weren't entirely sure it was what we wanted, but it was everything and more. No, it's not a Holiday Inn or high end resort, but that's exactly the point. The staff is exceptional. Everyone from the managers Bob and Diane to the motel staff Nora and Martha... More

My husband and I have been coming to Matlacha for years. We always stay at the Bridgewater Inn because of several reasons. It is literally on the water. The efficiency rooms have recently been refreshed with colorful island decor. You can step out your door and relax in one of the brightly painted deck chairs and watch dolphins and manatees... More

What a gem this little inn turned out to be. Consisting of only 9 units, the entire structure is built over the water. There was a small round kitchen table with four chairs, two couches and two queen size beds with a small kitchen area. It was clean, quiet and so very relaxing. We saw dolphins not far off the...

Right next to the bridge, the idea is great, but in practice there are cars and people going by at all hours. It's noisy. The rooms are dirty and outdated. Very overpriced, considering I found other places just down the road where we could have stayed for less, with great views and a lot less noise and congestion.

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.
