Employees here were very welcoming and helpful - and actually carried on conversations with interest. We have stayed in many hotels in our travels and this is the cleanest most well maintained hotel we have ever stayed in ! It is clear they pride themselves on cleanliness. No fake spray smells when entering the room - very nice. Stepped off... More

I used to love the Bayshore and always thought it was a good value, but something has shifted. The rooms are still nice and the hotel is still clean but the service not quite what it used to be, the coffee is like colored water and the price seems a bit high for what you get. Breakfast is standard hotel... More

My husband booked a lakefront suite for my birthday. The suite was huge with a giant whirlpool tub between the separate bedroom and the living area, which had a gas fireplace. The room was very clean and comfortable. There is a balcony looking out on Grand Traverse Bay which we enjoyed very much. The beach was lovely with lots of... More

I tried this hotel before but my husband could get this time. We checked in 9/4;14 and check out 9/6/2014. I loved the room: very comfortable beds,very clean,and they have an extra sink outside the bathroom, what I loved, and bathroms with a lot of "gifts" and I tried them all. I loved! The breakfast has fruits ( many choices),scrambles... More

Was lucky to obtain a room without a reservation. Staff was very helpful and friendly. Great view of the bay from room and porch. Very convenient location to town and restaurants. Room was clean and bed was comfortable. The room was worn and could use some updating. Breakfast was very good.

We stayed two nights and really liked the location. I wanted to stay downtown and on the beach and we took advantage of the ability to walk everywhere. The Bayshore was a great location and for a weekend was priced reasonably compared to our other options for that weekend. The Service was also very good and prompt. We both found... More

Great area, beautiful beach but dirty sheets left on the bed. We stayed at the Bayshore resort this past weekend. It is in a great location-walking distance to downtown and right on the bay. Decor is outdated but not terrible. Walls are paper thin we could hear every word said in the room next to us. Breakfast was a little... More

We had a family reunion there this past weekend. There were 35 of us. The staff was wonderful and so kind. The place has great amenities and is spotlessly clean. We will definitely go back! I wish more places were run this well! I forgot to mention the great hot breakfast included!

My husband and I stayed two nights here. I am very particular about the cleanliness of hotel rooms. Our room met my expectations. The staff was very friendly and helped us find a golf course we could play that afternoon. The beach is nice although not my favorite in the area. The location is excellent- on the West Bay and...
