Well kept, spacious, right on the beach, walking distance to downtown. Wish we could have stayed more than night! It would have been nice to have more amenities like a mini fridge or better coffee for the price of the room, but we were very happy with our stay.

My daughters and I traveled to the Traverse City area and stayed at the Bayshore Resort for 3 nights. The staff was friendly an very helpful. The property was clean and offered a nice beach area and paddle board/boat rentals (a nice extra). Breakfast was adequate but not spectacular (coffee was excellent). The location was excellent - a .7 miles... More

This small hotel is located right on the Bay with a lovely private beach where boats can be easily rented. The rooms are comfortable and the service is excellent. There is a solid hot and cold breakfast in the morning and coffee/tea etc all day. The location is outstanding--just a few block walk from an excellent downtown and the waterfront... More

I've stayed here 3 times in the last 3 years, and just reserved a 4th trip. It is a quiet, clean, comfortable hotel. The decor reminds me of a B&B, without the price tag :) We've always enjoyed our say here!

Family of 6 had two lakefront rooms. Although I agree it needs a little updating, we loved the place. Very clean, workers were friendly. The beach is excellent. Easy to navigate. Indoor pool is a bonus. Location is perfect. Breakfast was nice. We will definitely be back. This place is great for families with small or teenage kids.

Located right on the lake with a sandy beach. The location contributes to a high nightly rate. There are no safes or refrigerators in the room. Complimentary breakfast is good. Pool is nice as well as the proximity to the beach.

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

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
