The hotel is clean, the staff is friendly and the pool/bar area is fun! We had originally booked nearby at the Wyndham garden and it was horrible! As soon as we checked in we asked for a refund and ended up at Shephard's and were so happy! Great hotel, great stay! Noise doesn't bother us, but if it does than...

Our room, was on 4th floor front and center, pool view room.(428) Our balcony was nearly twice the size of the other balconies. This was our second stay at Shephards, last year we stayed in an island view room, which was perfect. Island view room seems to be quietest of the room options, if that's what you're into...Pool view room...

Dear Jason, We hope be considered for Honeymoon 3.0 next! The terrace rooms are a great place for enjoying the bands- especially All the Answers- they are one of our favorites too. You are correct in assuming that resort fees and credit authorizations are extremely normal practice - especially in Florida. We never hope to inconvenience anyone with tying up...

We rented a 2 room suite in June 2015. The room itself was very nice with a large patio overlooking the water. The other reviews are true, this is very much a night life driven hotel, but we didn't have any issues with sleeping. During our stay, we attended a wedding and reception in the wave room and it was...

This is party central for sure. If you like music and dancing this is the spot. Loved that our room faced the stage and we could enjoy the view while being entertained non-stop. The upgraded rooms are very nice and the staff very helpful. Loved the interactive dining experience. Will return soon to have another party filled weekend.

Every single day of the week I've had to take a cold shower, fix your water heater. Not a family place, a lot of dumb people come on the weekends. This time we can back from a bike ride on Friday night and heard a bunch of screaming, two groups were fighting eachother. Don't book unless you're a college kid.

Well, I thought I'd not enjoy not being directly on the beach but i was wrong. The small but clean beach area was really great for the kids. Didn't have a long hike to the water and best of all???? The Bar is super close! Pool is very nice and the Servers were attentive. Rooms were clean, beds were comfortable...

My boyfriend and I wanted to get away for a long weekend for my birthday and a quick getaway before the cold weather struck in Connecticut.

Everything was great! Will stay there again and again! It is more of an adult resort, which is great for us. The beach, pool, bars, and very nice clean rooms! We had a wonderful time. Very friendly hotel!

If you are looking for a casual location for a small destination wedding, Shephard's is amazing. Having worked in the hotel industry myself, I know how quickly expenses can add up particularly for a small group trying to reach hotel minimums.
