4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Travelling from England, we were looking for a safe, clean room for one night, near the beach and without paying some of the silly prices that are now being charged by the big corporate hotel chains. We decided on the Westmont and were not disappointed. We got a clean, comfortable and spacious room and yes, as other reviewers have said,... More

I will come back here everytime. Even if the hiltons and hyatts cut their rates in half. The owner and staff are always out and about which gives a sense of security and care to guests. Never imagined getting a deal like this right on clearwater beach. Easiest beach access and views of any hotel/motel here. Would like to see... More

My sister and I stayed here on our yearly vacation the third week of July. The room was very clean, the staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful. The pool was not big but we were right across the road from the Gulf! The views were excellent and we were within walking distance to everything. I not only recommend this hotel... More

The location of this hotel is EXCELLENT! Literally takes less that 5 min to get to beach. The staff at the hotel was very nice and accommodating. It is not a high end resort, but with that said, hotel was clean. Pool is not huge, but is more the sufficient. During our stay, I generally had pool to myself...the area... More

My sister and I stayed at this hotel, July 18 to 25. This place was clean, newly remodeled rooms, the staff were nice, housekeeping was very friendly.

I called and set up my reservation because my cousin said she was staying at the same hotel. Setting up the reservation seemed easy enough.

I read all the reviews on TripAdvisor before I booked with Westmont. I have put off with posting this review due to I like to support the Ma and Pop places.

Location couldn't be better, the beach is across the street and everything worth seeing in Clearwater Beach is within a 15-minute walk. The property is older, but it is a well run and well maintained no-frills hotel. The free parking is great. It can be a bit of a challenge to wedge your car into one or two of the... More

Nice family from Kissimee, you welcome return anytime. I never say "FREE" parking - because I know is far from free...when motel was purchased they did not just give parking area free. Here we INCLUDE 1 parking space with each room. If people show up and have 2 cars then they must pay for additional parking space $30.00 overnight -... More
