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

We were only at the Bayshore resort for one night after visiting some wineries, but I would definitely return for future visits. The person I spoke to on the phone when making the reservation was helpful, polite, spoke clearly over the phone. Check in only took a minute, and again, the person at the desk was very polite. The room... More

I have traveled around the country over the years and the word resort for this hotel is misleading. We enjoyed our stay here,but it was not because of the hotel. It was clean and comfortable and had great view of the bay(which you pay extra for) nice pool and hot tub area,friendly staff. Property is as wide as hotel with... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in mid June 2014. The rooms were nice and clean, but the decor was a bit dated. We didn't get a room with the bay view but it was still nice to have a balcony. The hotel is located right on the beach which was very nice. The staff was friendly and helpful. The... More

I've stayed at this hotel twice now and it's going to be the first place I call for future visits to Traverse City. The location is great -- right on the water and only a 15 minute walk into downtown. (And only a few steps from the local wine shop, the Blue Goat.) ;) My room was clean, comfortable, and... More

This has become one of our favorite hotels in the US midwest, although we discovered it purely by chance. When we travel we're generally looking for fun exercise, great places to visit and interesting food. The traverse city area has all of these in abundance and the Bayshore resort is perfectly located. The cycling (which we mostly do on vacation)... More
