Well we chose this place for the view but instead was in a room overlooking the streets with very little or no view at all of water. Leading with that disappointment what followed was no pressure in shower and fridge was iced up and not working. Within the first 5 minutes I was there I wanted to check out and be refunded. Talked with the manager about things and he was very quick to resolve the problem. Soon we were relocated to a water view, Within the first 10 minutes again we tried to take a shower and the pressure was good but the drain was plugged. Girlfriend sat on the toilet and almost ended up on the floor because toilet seat wasn’t fastened down all the way. The Fridge didn’t work, and every time we decided to leave for food or just to get out we felt obligated to tip because there valet parking. I wouldn’t recommend this place if you have children. Restaurant on the other hand was delicious and great service. Also the additional resort fee when checking in was not for seen or worth it.

We liked the location and the staff was very friendly. We did NOT like the loud blaring music that lasted until 2 a.m. every morning. I had a headache the entire time there. They do not have to blast the music for ALL of Clearwater to hear. I also think that because we booked with Travelocity they put you on the side where the loud music is, and they won't change your room.

Hi Frank, Thank you for choosing our hotel and for your review. I am very pleased that my staff was accommodating and I do apologize for the music being a issue. The next time your travels bring you to Clearwater Beach give us an opportunity to correct that issue and stay in one of our Island View Rooms which is on the opposite side of the beach which you will not hear the music.

Try another!

Loudest air conditioner ever experienced....bass line from nightclub traveled up to third floor...housekeeping did not visit room after first night of three-night stay... ridiculously pretentious...

We're sorry you were unhappy with your experience. However, we appreciate you taking the time to leave feedback. If guests encounter anything off during their stay, we encourage guests to contact the front desk so that we may assist and address the concern immediately. For future stays, we recommend an Island View room for an experience away from the music. Although we provide many wonderful amenities, we're not quite a full service resort and provided limited periodic cleaning. We hope this does not deter you from returning and enjoying a true Shephard's experience the second time around.

This is a great place, but be ready for the bands/music to play until 3am except for Sunday when it stops at midnight, so if you are on the gulf side you will be up!! They do tell you that going in though, but it is quite loud! Other than that, beautiful place, nice beach, good place to people watch! Definitely a "party" atmosphere, so if that's what you are looking for, that is what you get here!
