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

We were driving down the main road looking for places to stay, and the Bayshore Resort looked promising and the jacuzzi suite that we got seemed fun for our girl's weekend. It was appealing because all 5 of us (grandmother, mother, and three daughters) could stay together. The front desk staff was friendly. We had not unpacked yet and sat... More

We came with a large group and the hotel was great. They were incredibly accomodating and the staffwasvery friendly. It's completely smoke free and is NOT pet friendly. It is right on the bay too. Our room was clean and was nicely decorated even if dated a little bit. The downsides....no in room coffee pot or firdge. It is located... More

We have stayed here twice now. Once in the summer and now in the winter. Both times I feel it's reasonably priced for the location and pretty comfy. I wish they had more King beds, but it seems we were there during a busy time despite it being winter. Staff is friendly and the place is clean. Sure the place... More

Rachael, Thank you for your review. Our staff is very friendly so thank you so much for noticing and commenting on this. The majority of our rooms do have two queen sized beds so it is a little trickier to get a King during busy times! :) We are glad that you have stayed with us a few times and... More

This is a nice hotel on the beach within walking distance of downtown Traverse City. The rooms are spacious, but they lack furniture. There was room for a couch or comfy chairs, but instead there was a small table with a couple of hard chairs. The furniture was very, very dated -- 70's maple veneer. I expected cute, cottage style... More

Our stay was great! We are a scrapbooking group of 18 ladies. We found the Bay Shore to be a PERFECT place for group scrapbooking. They have two large conference rooms with our bedrooms right across the hall. It was amazingly convenient! I cannot say enough about the staff at the BayShore Resort. It was like being at a family...

I checked everyone's reviews before I stayed there, and I agree that perhaps the interiors could use a bit of spiff-ing up, but the charm of the place outweighed that for me. I stayed on the 3rd floor in a suite (fireplace & Jacuzzi) and it was very romantic, wonderful view of the bay. In fact, I could hardly come... More

Thank you for your review. We are happy that you were able to relax in one of our romantic suites! I do apologize that the breakfast was not replenished as quickly as it should have been- we will be sure that our breakfast room staff is watching for this. We hope to see you again in the future! Thank you. More
