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.

Have stayed here twice, and found the only problems to be a booking mix-up on one trip (where we ended up in a more costly room) and trying to get out of the hotel parking lot into busy traffic at any time of day or night. Otherwise, we found the hotel to be pleasant, clean and guest-friendly. Can't say enough... More

This is the second year our Hands All Around Quilt Group has had a quilt retreat at the Bay Shore. Last year we went for 3 days and 2 night and the experience was so wonderful that we increased it to 4 days and 3 nights this year and we have all decided that is the perfect amount of time.... More

My wife and I just spent the weekend there and got hit with a room rate much higher than quoted and they wouldn't budge. My wife took good notes and was aware of her corporate ceiling when she booked. They said it would be $128 which was fine and billed $178 and wouldn't budge. After an hour on the phone... More

We apologize that your stay with us was not up to our normal standards and reviews. Your wife was a part of a conference in town and was given a discounted rate that went along with the conference. This discounted rate was offered through the conference for one night only. Our rates, like those of all hotels in this area,... More

We've stayed here before. It's an acceptable hotel in many waysbut it is behind the times. Rooms look dated, old cheap hotel style. Wallpaper in bathroom is peeling. Bedding is old, not contemporary. No frig, microwave or coffeepot in room. Staff was very nice and helpful, friendly.
