This hotel is in a great location, right along the beaches of Lake Michigan! The beach is kept up well and it a great place to hang out during the day. The staff is helpful and accommodating. There is a lounge just off the lobby. I would recommend going there at least once while your there. They have great food... More

We reserved a room 6 months in advance and verified the reservation 3 times prior to arrival. Upon arrival Fawn, the manager, told us she gave our room to someone else. She then put us in another similar room that smelled like BO. When we refused to stay there she put us in another room which had already been rented... More

Great location, but we were unable to use the beach for almost an entire day due to back to back weddings at their gazebo near our rooms. We had a large group and could not use the deck and grill or the steps to the beach for 6 hours. When on the beach, our group was YELLED at by management... More

We recently stayed at the ParkShore for two nights. We were able to reserve a room at the last minute; the reservations staff was very helpful and suggested a bayside room. The front desk staff was friendly and the room was ready upon our arrival. The room was clean and we enjoyed the view and sitting out on the balcony.... More

This is our first time staying at this hotel. I know many of the hotels are dated in this area and in northern Michigan in general, and some are starting to finally update. That being said, I knew not to expect much when it comes to appearance. To my surprise, The hotel looks nice... but something about our room was... More

We've been staying at Parkshore Resort on and off for approximately 10 years now. Initially, we loved it, however, about 5 or so years back, the hotel went through a period of looking tired, so we decided to make our stays elsewhere in Traverse City. This year we switched back to ParkShore and must say, wow, that place is looking... More

The Park Shore resort is very nice because of the beach. We had a first floor room. We enjoyed the access to the beach, and the beautiful sunrises and sunsets from our patio. The beach is sandy, not rocky. The rooms are clean. Older, but nicely kept up.

We had a wonderful weekend at Parkshore! It was very clean and the staff was very helpful. We had a balcony view of the East Bay. You were able to rent different water toys. Very family friendly. They had areas if you would like to make a bonfire. They even had the wood to buy. We will defiantly be staying... More

We stayed here four or five years ago, but not at all happy with the cooling effects of the air condition unit. I wasn.t sure about trying again since the weather was supposed to be in the 90's. Turned out to be the best thing we could have did. First of all the ac units have been replaced, and the... More
