If you are looking for a very nice place to stay this resort is it. I stayed here with my family when I ran the Bayshore Marathon in Traverse City. It is a great resort which offers a beautiful view of Grand Traverse Bay and it is in walking distance of the Marathon. This resort offers beautiful, nicely decorated rooms,... More

Bayshore Resort is a fantastic place to stay and we will be noting our visit and will definitely be consider staying here again when visiting Traverse City.

I 2) Great spot for young families with little kids. Right on the sandy beach. Easy to keep an eye on kids as they play. 3) Outside seating good, there are a few... More

We did not book ahead for our one night stay. We got a cheaper rate than booking online by just calling ahead that day. We found the room very clean and comfortable. We had a room on the second floor, not beach front. It is nice to have a little patio and no smoking at this entire facility. Of course... More

We stayed for three nights the week before Cherry Festival. My husband and two kids (14 & 12) had a nice stay. Pros: The hotel beach is small, but nice with some plastic lounge chairs and table seating. It's a beautiful view of the bay. Our room was clean and comfortable. The hotel was a ten to fifteen minute walk... More

We have been staying at the Bayshore for over 15 years and love the location, the service, the staff, the cleanliness! HOWEVER, in that 15+ years the decor has not changed at all!!!! How old are these bedspreads that we are sleeping on???? I really think you need to do a interior design update Bayshore! It's about time!!!!! Also for... More

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
