1. Our air conditioning went out our first night. When we called, no one ever came to look at it. 2. We needed a wake up call for 4 am since we had an early flight, no one ever called, almost missed our flight.3. They also told us since we booked very early, they would waive our resort fee. I...

We checked in On April 30 at around 1 PM, the room wasn't quite ready but the bell hop took our bags and stored them until we got a call that the room was ready, actually gave us a chance to walk the grounds a bit. We did get the room I requested, top floor in the middle of the... More

We had a minor issue which occasionally springs up during our travels or in restaurants, shops or hotels in the US because of our diplomatic status. If You're a diplomat you can guess the story. Foreign diplomats are exempt from paying taxes in the US. This law usually upholds and applies almost everywhere in the US yet occasionally proprietors of... More

This day was quickly cut short - I REMOVED WITHOUT WARNING from my room at 12:30am - ABSURD. Emailed them with my feedback -... More

My friend and I heard this was the place to to have a good time in Clearwater. We had a mojito pitcher and pina coladas. As it was lunchtime, we also ordered nachos that took quite a while but were well worth the wait! The live band was excellent too. I would go back again for sure!

My wife and I stayed at Shepard's for the second time in April '15 - we were here about 13 years ago. The resort has gone through major renovations since the last time we were. Rooms were good and we had a view of the Gulf and Sand Key. It is a party destination and is well-known for that but... More

After that I checked in quickly with Matt who was great and assured me that my stay would be nothing less than... More

Dear Cindy, We are situated on the Gulf of Mexico near a small stretch of beach with beautiful white sand and are only a block away from the famous Clearwater Beach; both beaches have private vendors that rent out chairs and umbrellas. We provide chairs, shade and comfort for our guests on property at the poolside area complete with out-door... More
