Pay high dollar for no continental breakfast, dryer out of service, & dirty color hot tub. Made reservations in May and would have cost me more than a person walking in that day!! They dropped their prices and didn't inform us. I called them to get their prices and then they gave me a refund. Only perk was listening to... More

The park shore resort is a few miles from downtown, so if you are hoping for that, this isn't the place. This is the place to walk right out of your hotel room and go to the beach. The hotel has a restaurant and a bar with a great happy hour. If you are hoping to stay on the beach,... More

First off, would I go back? Probably. We went with another family and had a good time - the beach was clean, water perfect, and the people there were nice. Lots of families, and party people - in my opinion, a good mix, since we were looking to have our 3 year old have some fun, and maybe having a... More

My family and I pulled into Traverse City on a very busy weekend. We had reservations at a hotel but we were unhappy with the hotel location. That hotel gave us 30 minutes to find another hotel. We pulled into a few to find they were totally booked. By luck, Parkshore had a room open for the days we were... More

The location is nice, but the service is terrible. We could not get into one of our rooms because they hadn't cleaned it yet. There were no towels in one of the rooms and the air conditioning quit. They didn't have the rooms cleaned until late afternoon the second day. They also overcharged me an extra night stay and it... More

I recently attended a wedding here and found that they had next to ZERO parking allotted for their wedding guests. We were instructed that we would have to park down at a local Grocery store (a mile down a VERY busy highway with zero sidewalks) and hike back. I was concerned we may get towed from there as well-do they... More

I have stayed at the Parkshore Resort in Traverse City for about 10 years when business has me in the area. I don't stay for vacation as we have a cottage in the area. BUT if I didn't have the cottage I would for sure stay there in the summer months. They have a Happy Hour form 4 to 7... More

We stayed at this hotel for a weekend in May. Since it was off season we got a great rate. The room is nice size, clean, with a comfortable bed. They have a restaurant/lounge on the premises but it is quite noisy. However there is a small but cozy dining room right next door. Everyone was in the lounge so... More

On a road trip cruising around and stumbled upon this gem. Nice hotel, big rooms, clean, but the best part is the lounge and restaurant. We walked in ordered a drink and the place was packed on a Sunday night. The hotel wasn't busy but all these people? Checking out the menu ordered the shrimp, delicious, plate covered with those...
