“Just didn't satisfy my requirements, but went above and beyond what I would have ever expected.”
Reviewed December 16, 2009

Being a resident from Orange County, CA, I visited for a school interview in the Davie area which is about 10 miles from The Bridge. I could have stayed at a hotel that was $100+ that offered a shuttle from the airport and to the school, but it wasnt near the beach and being that I'm visiting Florida, I had to be near the beach. My stay at the Bridge on Cordova was amazing. From the moment I arrived at the airport, Jorge, the owner, picked me up. I was told it was $10 dollars usually, but since i was staying there for 2+ days, it was free. Location is near 2 big chain super markets making food very accessible. The Bridge is also near numerous restaurants such as the Raw Bar and Quarterdeck making going out for food and drinks very easy. In addition, the beach was a bus/bike ride away. The only better location I can think of is on the beach itself, which would cost me 4-8 times the rent I paid for at the Bridge. You can calculate the cost of everything and you'll still come out on top, but calculating the experience I had there would be priceless. The people you meet, usually yachters and other various backgrounds, would keep you up at night talking about anything. You can share a room or rent a private room in the back for families and such. The service is an entirely different story. The housekeepers are very punctual at keeping the rooms clean and Jorge works very hard to make you happy. He offered me a ride to my school which was 10 miles away, and supported me like my own family would on my journey. He is a great friend, business owner, and acted as a father in my time of need. You can't expect the Ritz or a Holiday Inn; the setting isnt made for that, but you can expect an experience that you've never encountered before. One that will open your perspective on the views of people in the world. I can assuringly say that I will come back one day and stay here again only to hope that I will gain the same experience as I once did at the Bridge on Cordova. Thank you my friend, you made my trip worth every penny and every memory worth every second.

What can you really say about the bridge? It has it's highs, and it has its lows. This place is unlike anyother you have stayed at, the most diverse clientel I have ever come across, and that is a VERRRRY good thing. This place gives insight into the life of the "yachting professional" Don't expect the Ritz, and you won't be dissapointed. As far as hotels go, it is O.K. but as far as the experience goes, the is no better! The people are unique, the pool is great fun, and the owner/manager is great people. This is the most interesting place I have ever stayed, if you can't find good conversation here, you are not trying hard enough. Close to everything, try the Village Well for a cocktail at a good price, the daytime bartender is BEAUTIFULL!!!, and the guys who work at night are some of the best I have seen from NYC to LA, ask for John. No food at the hotel, but it is close to everything on this side of Lauderdale. Can't say enough about the people and the experience I had at the Bridge.
