This hotel needs some serious updates to make it comfortable. The bed was terrible, fridge noisy, air conditioning loud and cut in and out too much, bathroom fixtures need updating, rusty and corroded. The good: great location, oceanview, great parking, very friendly staff, prompt housekeeping. We would stay again if some of those little updates were made.

I would stay at this hotel everytime I come to Clearwater Beach. I have stayed last year at Christmas and this year on Nov 07. When I got to the hotel, KC, the afternoon desk attendant waited until midnight for me to arrive. My car rental didn't show up so I was delayed getting there. Normally the office is closed... More

Westmont Motel is the new name of the former Ritz Motel. The only reason why my wife and I went there was the fact that we stayed in this motel 25 years ago (at the time the name was Ritz) on our first trip to Florida. I think that since then nothing was made. It's old, shabby and totally run... More

Sorry you feel as you do based upon your review. Since by your own admission you have only returned here 1X in 25 years it is safe to assume it may be another 25 years before you return - which by then myself or this motel will no longer be here. Since you were only here less then 24 hours,... More

My fiance' and I just returned from our 4 day vacay, overall great experience here. Can't beat the location for the price, that's for sure!! Hair dryer in room didn't work, but no problem because Veronica gave me another. The pool was just the right temperature. Not to warm and not to cold that wimpy butt wouldn't get in. Super... More

The perfect hideaway just steps from Clearwater Beach. The motel is dated and a little tired, but it's well cared for, clean and comfortable. We stayed in room 50 which included a queen sized bed, TV, wifi, kitchenette with small fridge, microwave, coffee maker, hot plate and sink. Basic cutlery, dishes, and cups are included. The bathroom was clean and... More

Thank You for review and feedback. You write, " There are 3 reasons you should rent here: price, location and cleanliness. If you're looking for an affordable beach vacation (and not a lot of luxury), the Westmont rates 5+ on all three. Then you check 4 dots? Must be because of parking. But I understand you not understand what go... More

K.C. and staff was extremely polite and even put us on the 5th floor :) This hotel is old school and in need of some TLC. If you are looking for ammenties, this is NOT the place for you.

We can't grumble about the value here, as our room was very inexpensive. However, the hotel is somewhat scruffy and feels rather neglected. The location is superb, though, just over the road from the lovely Clearwater beach.

Mr. Scruffy but cheap in London, I always thank guest for review even when only 3 dots. Many people think the tripadvisors 5 dot rate scale is to rate hotel... some select 2 or 3 stars, then write a very nice review. The dots rateing to be clear is to rate how you enjoy your stay here. I remembers you... More
