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

I can't wait to go back th Shepard's to enjoy more fun with friends odd and new. My expectations were exceeded when I called & was given a better rate for the room than what was listed online. After that I checked in quickly with Matt who was great and assured me that my stay would be nothing less than... More

Our reservation host Dezzire Burgos was extraordinary! She was extremely informative and kind upon arrival.She kindly let us see our room before booking and helped us out with a wonderful discount which was so appreciated. The room was oceanview and top notch condition! You could smell the cleanliness of the hotel and room. Something for every age from the pool... More

We made the booking at this place one month in advance and paid in full. As we were checking in we were asked to pay extra money (taxes) as they suddenly decided not to recognize our diplomatic tax exemption card. We asked to speak to supervisor. They called some Kody Peer who was extremely aggressive for no reason and almost... More

Dear guest, We apologize for your experience and want to let you know that just like most people out there; we share in your desire to not have to pay taxes. But though they can seem burdensome sometimes- we do understand that our system would not function as it does without them. You see, the federal government issues the nation's... More

Loved the hotel on previous stay but the last time I stayed it was my four kids and I and we decided to spend our last night before driving 18 hours the next morning here. We booked a pool view room but when we checked in we were informed there was only one room open (and I found out why... More

Dear guest, We apologized that you were inconvenienced; it is rare that we have to change a guests room type, but is something that every hotel can run into due to maintenance, stay overs, and arrival departure patterns. We do our best to upgrade any guest that becomes displaced from their original booking. It is unacceptable that it took 5... More

We stayed at this hotel this month(April, 2015). Great views from every room of the water! The room was clean, big, and very comfortable. Staff was friendly and helpful. We ate outside- food and drinks were very good. My only complaint was the loud music that did not end until 1:00 P.M. It was a Tuesday night. The music could... More

As you can see on their site, it's not on the beach, it's on an inlet. What you can't see is the noise level. Once we booked a room, the confirmation email sent to us only then told us that we would be able to hear the noise from the club downstairs that opens at 9pm, and also noise from... More

Very dissapointed in this place!!! We found this place online and called to make our reservations, there were 2 adults and 3 kids. They never gave us any notice that this place is pretty much for adults! The music was so loud outside you coldnt even carry a conversation without yelling. We were located on the 5th floor and once... More
