beautiful resort. Excellent location. Friendly staff. You can't do much better!!! We stayed for a hockey tourney with a bunch of kids. We walked to town easily. Kids loved played hockey on the deck beachside (like they didn't get enough in the rink!)

By far the cleanest hotel I've stayed in. Everyone from the maids to the front desk workers were friendly! I will come back to this hotel next time we come to Traverse City. Super close to downtown! Beautiful view! The breakfast is great. Large selection!

We choose this motel due to its location on the beautiful bay. We were traveling thru, weren't sure if we were going to spend the night & decided at the last minute to stay. Room was a 'corner' room with a 'limited view' of the bay. Large room with a hot tub. We enjoyed a gorgeous sunset over the bay!... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Bayshore Resort. It's style is outdated, but it is clean and just a 20 minute walk from the downtown Traverse City area. Breakfast was pretty good too, and free coffee & tea in the front lobby was another plus!

Breakfast was very good with cereal, waffles, pancakes, eggs, fruit, pastries and yogurt. All fresh. Pool area was clean. Rooms facing the bay have a gorgeous... More

Close to downtown Front Street shopping and thankfully away from the road construction. Great view of the bay. Staff were incredibly friendly. Room was immaculate, plenty of towels and pillows. Pool area clean and quaint with a fun blue sky ceiling, puffy clouds and cute hanging kites. Breakfast was nice, the coffee very good which we enjoyed sitting on the... More

We got a great deal on this place and were not expecting much. Went for mother's day weekend and were really surprised. Walking distance to town with all restaurants and shops. A short drive to beautiful sites and vineyards. Located on the beach, rooms have balconies, and gorgeous views. Has indoor pool. Clean rooms with good wifi. Breakfast included. Really... More

Our stay at Bayside Resort was fabulous. The staff was friendly and helpful. The facilities were clean and the whirlpool bath was so relaxing. Breakfast served was one the best that we have encountered in our travels. Melissa was terrific and went out of the way make sure we enjoyed our stay.

A perfect last minute choice. Neither my daughter or myself felt like taking on the return trip home after having a wonderful day of activity and microbreweries. The price of the room was great, the staff very friendly. The room was very clean, beds soft, and seriously the TV had a lot of choices. (Just to say, 15 + sports... More
