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...

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.

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.

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 .
