This was the perfect place to visit with our family. The rooms were clean, the staff was friendly and the location was very convenient. We were able to walk to local restaurants and shops. The fishing from our dock located in front of our room was amazing! We loved it and will probably come back for a longer trip.

This was a great one-night getaway. Many Florida hotels that are "on the water" have a minimum 2-3 night stay, and it can be difficult to find a nice quick place to escape when you don't have that much time. The Bridgewater was very accommodating, reasonably priced, and the staff was great. We didn't catch any fish off the pier,... More

We were looking for a get away with friends, and one we could come by boat too. An Internet search lead us to the Bridgewater Inn.

The place is a nice place to stay. Rooms are very clean, the staff is very nice. Fishing from the dock is great. We put paddle boards in right from the dock. Lot's of dolphin in the water. You can walk to all the restaurant's and bar's. I will go back stay with them again.

A wonderful place in Pine Island Florida. Nothing fancy just feel at home. Decorated very nice, but most of all the Husband and Wife that manage this property are going to make your stay wonderful.

We stayed in a spacious suite on the northeast corner of this enviable dockside hotel that appears to be floating atop Matlacha Bay. The decor is beachy. The surroundings are inviting. Everything is within walking distance. Bridgewater Inn is a great place for a Florida getaway.

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.
