We were driving down the main road looking for places to stay, and the Bayshore Resort looked promising and the jacuzzi suite that we got seemed fun for our girl's weekend. It was appealing because all 5 of us (grandmother, mother, and three daughters) could stay together. The front desk staff was friendly. We had not unpacked yet and sat... More

We came with a large group and the hotel was great. They were incredibly accomodating and the staffwasvery friendly. It's completely smoke free and is NOT pet friendly. It is right on the bay too. Our room was clean and was nicely decorated even if dated a little bit. The downsides....no in room coffee pot or firdge. It is located... More

We have stayed here twice now. Once in the summer and now in the winter. Both times I feel it's reasonably priced for the location and pretty comfy. I wish they had more King beds, but it seems we were there during a busy time despite it being winter. Staff is friendly and the place is clean. Sure the place... More

This is a nice hotel on the beach within walking distance of downtown Traverse City. The rooms are spacious, but they lack furniture. There was room for a couch or comfy chairs, but instead there was a small table with a couple of hard chairs. The furniture was very, very dated -- 70's maple veneer. I expected cute, cottage style... More

Our stay was great! We are a scrapbooking group of 18 ladies. We found the Bay Shore to be a PERFECT place for group scrapbooking. They have two large conference rooms with our bedrooms right across the hall. It was amazingly convenient! I cannot say enough about the staff at the BayShore Resort. It was like being at a family...

I checked everyone's reviews before I stayed there, and I agree that perhaps the interiors could use a bit of spiff-ing up, but the charm of the place outweighed that for me. I stayed on the 3rd floor in a suite (fireplace & Jacuzzi) and it was very romantic, wonderful view of the bay. In fact, I could hardly come... More

The hotel is hosting 3 peewee Hockey teams for the weekend (more on that later). Great view of the water from the Queen spa room on the 2cd floor. Jacuzzi tube worked great, staff was super helpful but the hotel hasnt seen an upgrade in decor since the late 80's early 90's. But why should they, its TC and people... More

This is a very nice hotel ( our first visit here ). We had a nice room across from the pool during the week, and everything from the room, to the pool, and to the hot breakfast was just perfect. The staff was very friendly and helpful, and we will definitely return in the future.

We got a room with a lakeside balcony. It was real nice, too bad it rained our entire visit. We really liked the location. Staff was great and we enjoyed the old fashioned look of the place. Room was great.
