We stayed here December 26 & 27 2012. We loved it! Room very clean! Kitchenette was wonderful! When we checked in KC was very very helpful. Showed us our room, made sure there was a heater for my girls since it was a little chilly and made sure we had extra blankets so they didn't get cold. We loved it... More

We chose to stay here after an awful experience at another motel close by. We got the room out of desperation needing somewhere to stay, and the manager was very helpful. After we got squared away in the room he gave us coupons and filled out a map of good places to see on the island. The room was very... More

Without mentioning name of motel nearby - Yes, I am aware not clean place, old everything. Plus they charge more then we do. Many- many changes taking place in our little beach town. City of Clearwater wants luxury 300.00 plus a night HOTELS. Like Hyatt, make it very hard for small place to stay in business with new rules and... More

It ain't a "resort" either, but if you're looking for an inexpensive, decent place across the street from the beach, you can't beat it. Not many amenities like body lotion, decent soap or shampoo, or beach towels, but a small kitchenette area was helpful. The exhaust fan comes on with the light in the bathroom, and was way too loud... More

We stayed at The Ritz for 3 days and had a wonderful experience. The rooms were very clean and we had an awesome view from the balcony. The hotel is an older hotel, but it is like a diamond in the rough. It is perfectly located ! The staff was very friendly and helpful. We will be back !

This is a great hotel if you are on a tight budget and simply want a place on the beach. The room does have a tiny kitchenette but its pretty low frills, which is all I wanted this trip. I wasn't flying in till late on a Wednesday and they called me the day before to confirm and told me... More

The night clerk, Casey, was over the top nice and super helpful! He showed us the room first, to ensure it was to our liking. The room was basic, but very clean and charming. The location couldn't be better, with a gorgeous view of the beach. Also a very reasonable rate for the location. We'll definitely come back!

Thank you for nice review. KC just be doing job. Unlike chain motel here every room is different decoration. 3 story original was built in 1956 - 5 story built 74-75. So rooms size also different. Some kitchenettes are better then others. #147 has very nice kitchen - 1 bed. #30 have full kitchen with dining area, King Bed, Huge... More

This motel has a great location. We have stayed at the Ritz for several years running now. We always get the best rate on the beach. You are literally steps away from one of out favorite places Frenchies with the best cubans. McDonalds is steps away to take the kids for a snack. The motel is not huge, it is... More
