We stayed here on my daughters recommendation, it was nice. Friendly staff when I called for reservations, upon check in and at checkout. Great complimentary coffee available in lobby & of course with breakfast. The pool & hot tub looked inviting, but we didn't bring swimsuits so didn't get to test it out. We had a nice side balcony room,... More

Something about this hotel that I love. Maybe it's the classic luxurious look, the feeling of being somewhere new makes ten times better when it your surroundings look like this. It's a great way to start of a trip. Me and my sister stayed here for her birthday, we had a nice girls night. We really wanted to just stay... More

My wife and I came to TC for 30th anniversary/New Years get away. We chose The Bayshore for it's proximity to Front St. shops and The Cherry Drop. We arrived a few hours early and they greeted us with a smile and let us check in early. For the entire time the whole staff were very friendly and knowledgeable of... More

This is an older hotel, but a comfortable and well situated one. The employees are all friendly. We had room 108 in the corner on the first floor. Small balcony with a wonderful view of the lake and a jacuzzi tub (spa room). Right off the lobby in the front of the hotel is an indoor pool and jacuzzi. On... More

We stayed in a suite with a jetted jacuzzi right by our bed. Absolutely romantic. Roses and champagne were included in our romance package along with chocolates. It surpassed our expectations. Sitting in the tub, looking our at the snow falling on the bay... priceless.

VERY close to downtown, driving distance from Mission Point Peninsula, lakeview rooms available, and the King Jacuzzi suit was much larger than expected. The staff was excellent, friendly and very helpful. I would definitely stay again if I visit Traverse City. Continental breakfast was slightly above average fare, which is good. Good coffee, waffle maker, etc.

We stayed at this hotel in early October. We booked a waterview room with a balcony on the second floor. The view of Traverse Bay was beautiful especially the sunset! They had a beach area with chairs set up also. The hotel was clean, the staff was excellent, and it was close to the downtown area which is great for... More

I was visiting my cousin with my parents when we stayed here. My Dad said this was the best place he has stayed at in a while. We had a room with a balcony and it had a spectacular view of the beach and bay. There was a good assortment of breakfast items in the morning, everything from little cheese... More

The reason for my title, Room 219 is because of the photo posted for the Bayshore Resort. That is exactly what we saw from 219. Although it was overcast with some drizzle, the Bay was still a beautiful sight. The room 219, well, if I was to stay in Traverse City again, I would request it. Grrreeeeaaattt stay. Don't want...
