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 Decor is outdated but not terrible.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...

My family and I have stayed here many times and the hotel has been very well kept over the years. The rooms are standard, but I was very disappointed that there was not a refrigerator, microwave, or coffee pot in the rooms. Most hotels these days have at least one if not all three. My husband and I have many... More

We enjoyed our stay in a beach front room. Staff was pleasant, room was clean and comfortable. Location is great. Nice to be able to walk out of our room onto the private beach and watch the sunset. Breakfast could have been stocked better. Ran out of some items and were not very attentive about restocking.

Very nice resort within walking distance of park and downtown Traverse City. Private beach and very nicely kept hotel. Great service. The only downside would be on the Saturday evening the wedding party block room folks came in at 1 am and spent a half hour screaming, beating on doors, slamming doors and generally not being a mature considerate group....

We only stayed one night at the Bayshore Resort. When I called for a reservation I asked about the AAA discount as is indicated on the website, however I was advised that the AAA discount is only for the off season. The location is good with the beach and close to town. This is the reason we had picked this... More
