It's nothing fancy and the room is small, but you won't spend much time there when you can literally walk across the street to the beach! The staff was nice and there was a fridge and microwave in the room along with a nice flat screen. However we never even turned it on. There is free wifi and parking (but... 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

As always thank you for feed back and review. Happy you happy. Lots of new hotels going up all around us.

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.
