Bob and Diane and Martha are great hosts. They go the extra mile to ensure you are happy. If you want a resort with a pool and room service don't go here. However, if you want to watch mantes, porpoises, kayak, ospreys, fish and just chill. This would be the best. I love this place!!!

While staying in Matlacha wanted to check out this motel for a future trip. Because they had a "vacancy" sign out front we stopped in and politely asked if we could see a vacant room. The woman who seemed in charge in the lobby (talking with the girl behind the desk) informed us she could not show us a room,... More

To whom it may concern, can I just point out that you mentioned that you stayed in Matlacha & not @ the Bridgewater Inn so let's just make that clear so others will see this is more your opinion & not an actual event if you had stayed with us, because just like those 100 of guests that I mentioned...

Nice place, very clean, owners on site. Very friendly folks, had a nice two night stay. Matlacha is all within a nice stroll. If you have kids and want to fish, and maybe see the dolphins cruising by, this is the place for you. Rooms have better amenities than some luxury hotels we have stayed in.

The was our first trip to Matlatcha and Bridgewater Inn. The staff there were very nice and made us feel welcome. The views are outstanding and location is perfect. We were able to walk to everything and saw dolphins jumping from our window. I got up early in the morning and watched the sunrise from my front door. The room... More

This is a quaint motel that sits over the water in Matlacha. The rooms are small but clean and nicely decorated, and the staff is very friendly. We sat outside in the evening and it was very quiet and relaxing. The shower is small, but plenty of hot water. We will definitely stay here again.

Recently stayed here for a last minute weekend away and hotel for the bill nicely. Rented some dock space and was able to keep boat in the water . Hotel is unique and built on pilings. This makes the rooms sorta uneven but makes for great views for most of the rooms .

We came across the Bridgewater Inn randomly during our road trip in Florida and only booked a room for a single night but... we loved it the moment we arrived - we couldn't see much (it was night) but we could smell the sea and hear the waves. Most of all, the greeting we got on our arrival made us... More

This was a wonderful family weekend. Fishing every day and wathcing dolphin was a highlight. The hotel is situated on the water and has great views of the Gulf of Mexico.

The rooms facing the water have rod holders mounded on the veranda rail outside your room ... when I saw that it brought to mind the possibility of lying in bed with a cord tied around my big toe and a rod outside.
