Noisy hotel .... loud music til very late at night/early morning. Had to change rooms and the new one not much better than the old. Staff made promises regarding fixing various problems but not much action was actually taken. Hardly any mature staff. If you are looking for a relaxing place to stay, we would really advise against this hotel.... More

Dear guest, It is unfortunate that you did not enjoy our property; we prefer to think that our music is entertainment instead of noise- however understand that it is not for everyone. We do recommend the island view rooms for those who would like a quiet stay. Best regards, Management More

We were looking for a hotel right on the ocean in Clearwater with a heated pool and Shephard's looked great. I was a little worried about some of the reviews that mentioned the loud music and trouble sleeping, so I reserved a room on the opposite side of the building and it was new, clean and still had a beautiful...

Tripadvisor states it has free parking and breakfast, parking is only available for one vehicle, and no free breakfast. I'm glad I called first. It would of been tragic to have to go all the way to clearwater to find out I was lied to.

The hotel seemed was fine for the price that you pay. It was in a great location to walk around town. In fact, I did not rent a car at all. But rather just used the Florida free ride service which is a taxi service that does not charge a fair but is based on tips. The hotel has alot... More

My husband and I recently stayed at the Shepard's Beach Resort for five days. We were alittle skeptical since we had never been on the west coast of Florida before. We loved it!!

My wife and I used to go here 10-20 years ago, when it was run down but had a great tiki bar and bands inside on the weekend.
