This is an average property with a great rate on the water. The beach is smaller than most of Clearwater Beach - because it is on the Intracoastal Waterway. It is a unique location with a view of the Gulf. Lots of activity. My only request on this trip was a balcony room to watch the water. The corner room was perfect....EXCEPT....the ongoing party next door at Shepherds Resort....if you want a party this is the place. If you want ANY peace AT ALL do not stay here. The music was so loud that sitting on the balcony was impossible - and inside with the door closed did not help. As far as the beach...the locals all park their boats there and there are anchor lines and drunks everywhere. There is nowhere to get in the water near the hotel without the risk of being run over by a boat. The party is a regular event until 12am (Sun-TH) and 2am (FR-SAT) according to the front desk clerk. We witnessed a fight between two "ladies" , excessive drinking by young people and many near misses as boats arrived....in the two hour period we could tolerate on the balcony Saturday afternoon between 12 and 2 pm. Not my idea of a day at the beach.
