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. Thinking by the description on the website, this could be for us we booked it several months ago. One of our travelers had to bring a car, but the rest of us made the... More

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.

My wife and I spent 4 days in one of the suites and it felt like home. The surroundings are simple and beautiful! The Bridgewater Inn owners make you feel like family!

Had to spend an extra night for work and got a room here. The gentleman at the desk could not have been more accommodating by showing is different rooms for different prices and then convincing us to take the less expensive! Rooms are spacious and have everything for a vacation stay. They are clean and decorated with great being built... More

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. Enjoy a relaxing vacation with real people. This is a wonderful place to stay, just good people nothing fancy.

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.

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.
