This is a great little motel right across from the beach. A new manager Eddie took over from the previous owners. Eddie was very helpful to us as well as the rest of the staff, KC, Anna, and a couple of other ladies whose names I have forgotten. Restaurants are right next door. A little kitchenette area if you want... More

The Westmont may be the last remaining mom and pop operation on Clearwater Beach. It's an older building but the owners care and keep it very clean. Breakfast is chocolate chip cookies. We loved it. Small pool but directly across the street from Clearwater Beach. Literally just a few steps from terrific beach restaurants and shops. Gulf view from the... More

My wife and I stayed here for 5 nights in November. You cannot beat the location, being across the street from the beach. We stayed on the third floor, which had good views of the sunset over the water at an angle due to the timing of the year and direction it set. We didn't notice it the first day,... More

Overall this hotel was OK and decent value for the money ONLY because of the location. It is an older (original style) Florida type motel which in the 1950's I'm sure it was "fancy", however not anymore. I will say though, if you are on a budget, it is good value for the money. It includes a parking space (parking... More

We spent just one night at this hotel. The best thing about it was how close it was to the beach, and how nice the staff was! The room was of adequate size, the TV was okay, but the floors was humid and sticky, and even though the room was a non-smoking room one can smell cigarette smell, and smoking... More

Thank you for staying with us, we are happy you had a great time and your expectations were met. We are sorry for the smoke smell, we do have a policy No smoking in the rooms but some customers just do not follow the policy rules and get charged $100.00 for smoking in a room. We look forward to seeing... More

I booked through Hotels.com and upon arrival K.C. couldn't find my reservation. 15 minutes later he "gave me a room and we will find the reservation" He proceeded to tell me that he couldn't give me a first floor room because he saved them for "elderly guests" (no big deal but all these things added up) he told me that...

Your reservation was missed placed and we are sorry about that. I apologize that K.C. gave you the wrong information that should have never happened. Veronica was just following the Motel policy, we do have a sign outside that state $20.00 beach parking so he should have never told you parking is $10.00 on the day of checkout. Thank you... More

Our room was clean, comfortable, all anemites we needed were either in the room or easily acquired from the staff. The location was perfect, across the street from the beach. Close to a good variety of restaurants. Was very reasonably price especially for the location!!!

Simple clean "motel". Bed and A/C is a little noisey and wish there were more wall plug ins. Didnt use the pool, so not sure how that is. I saw some reviews that complained about the shower, but ours was fine. All in all for the money it is a good value and location is great.

This hotel was one of the stops on our honeymoon. Every room is unique, very cosy and clean. The staff is extremely friendly, we got a lot of nice tipps of what to do in Clearwater. And, of course, the location is awesome, it is so close to the beach! We enjoyed our stay so much there!!!

We were a 'walk-in' and were very lucky to have the ground floor unit nearest the beach - which is across the road - given that it was power boat racing weekend and Clearwater was packed! Veronika gave us an excellent rate for our three day stay. She was very welcoming and informative and all restaurants, shops and excursions are... More
