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. The owners/managers are very friendly and helpful. The rooms are very nice and clean. With the inn sitting right on the water I was afraid the rooms might have a musty... More

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 Hotel is located right next to the Matlacha bridge and is central to all of the quaint little shops,and of course, next door is our favorite "Berts Bar and Grill" They have left...

Friendly Inn Keepers (Bob and Nora) offering clean rooms and great views. Convenient location offering fishing, shops and plenty of galleries. Simply said, it's a fun and relaxing place! - Bert's Bar and Grill is a must!

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 . The tiny Island of Matlacha( Mat La Shay) is one you can walk... More

Hi again & we appreciate you reaching out & spreading the love of how spectacular the location of our Inn is here in Matlacha Florida & some people might not realize that almost the entire place is surrounded by water & the views are incredible.

We recently returned from a four-day kayak vacation, with the Bridgewater Inn being our home away from home. We are almost hating to share this gem of a place! Staff was delightful, informative and continually made sure we had everything we needed. Room was beautiful and clean. Although we were apprehensive, based on another review about 5B, the room was...

We booked this hotel through Booking.com and on the booking form it said that we had a room with a kitchenette and a Gulf view. Instead we had a closet with a fridge, microwave and small coffee maker. You could get a glimpse of the water if you peered out of the window to the right. The room had a... More

Thank you for taking the time to review your visit. We hope your stay was otherwise enjoyable. In the future, please let the innkeepers know, as soon as possible after check-in, if you are dissatisfied with your accommodations as it may be possible to upgrade. We have contacted Booking.com to have them remove "kitchenette" from the room description. The room... More
