No, not that Ritz. But if you're looking for a clean and comfortable room directly across from one of the best beachs in the US, then this is the place. Situated in a lively area witihn a short walk to restaurant, shops, the pier and of course the beach the Ritz aka Westmont Inn provides a great base for sun... More

We have stayed at this motel twice so far for our anniversary. My boyfriend and I will continue to go for our anniversary in May. We love the location and the value. The first time we stayed we thought that the location was great and well worth the price. The second time we stayed we swore that we'd never stay... More

Not your high rise glitz palace, the Ritz offers clean rooms, right across the street from Florida's highest-rated beach, and at a price that will not set you back a mortgage payment. We had a room on the 4th floor which met all our needs, including a small kitchenette. The tile floors and bathroom fixtures were practically new and spotlessly... More

Stayed here due to the reasonable price, big mistake! They refused to honor my request for a room on the top floor, the other guests were noisy, hindering my sleep, and they told me I had to leave 2 hours before checkout so they could clean the room! I told the front desk, but they did not seem to care,... More

I suspect this is fake review because I check all reservations - no Ellen - no guests from Palm Harbor. I never ever make anyone check out early. IF that is a big - IF- I refuse you room on top 5th floor is because they were all taken, or others have reservation. When you walk in last minute with... More

Great place to stay if you're visiting Clearwater Beach! Right across the street from the beach, an easy walk to the Pier, a nice cafe next door, even McDonalds for a quick breakfast very close by. This simple but clean, affordable and friendly motel is a perfect choice! Hands down the best value in town!

Very basic motel, however it is extremely clean, the staff is very nice and you have one of the best beaches in the country about 30 yards from your door! For the price, the Ritz Motel cannot be beat.

The place met our expectations and would happily come back. You know what you pay for, if you are expecting a modern hotel then book elsewhere. The main advantage is a location. Close everywhere (incl. beautiful beach, restaurants, small shops).The rooms are clean and equipped in the basic kitchen stuff which was convenient. Friendly staff (greetings from Europe!!!) - we...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Ritz Resort Motel established in 1956, is the last original family owned and operated motel on the Gulf in Clearwater Beach. Your hosts the Gialda family has operated the motel for the last 2 decades. Radka our maid has also been with us 17 years now. We offer nice clean rooms, friendly service at a fair price. We do not nickel and dime our guests with extra separate charges for parking, wifi etc... Nor do we have any "resort fees" We offer 6 different room styles, and every room is decorated differently. Seniors and families with young children love it here! Party People we suggest Shepards. NO SMOKING. Important - Ritz Resort Motel is now also a Westmont Inn. No affiliation with the Ritz - Carlton Hotel chain. ... more   less
