Our annual anniversary (this is our 30th anniversary, the majority have been at the resort) trip to South Bass Island and Put-In-Bay would not be complete without staying at the BayShore Resort. The staff are some of the nicest people around. The rooms are very comfortable. This time we stayed on the south end of the resort, top floor. The... More

This was the first time coming to Put-In-Bay in 14 years that we stayed at one of the places up there. (we used to have a house we stayed at) I was nervous a little about booking a night to stay at one of the hotels just because well I can just imagine what goes on in those rooms that... More

BayShore is clearly the best place to stay because it is the only hotel with a lake view. We enjoyed being on the lake even though there was no beach to access it here. You can go down some steps though but I wouldn't recommend swimming in the lake from there. We enjoyed the screened in balconies to keep out... More

This is a nice location close to downtown and the Jet Express. The hotel faces the water and each room has a patio or screened in balcony facing the water. The rooms, especially the bathroom, felt dirty to me. The pools & hot tub were nice but some of the front desk staff were very rude when we inquired about... More

Hotel was ok. The 2 pools and jacuzzi were very nice. We spent most of our time there. There is also a tiki bar nearby for refreshments. They offer golf carts to rent at a reasonable rate than in town. Short walk from the jet express, too. Rooms were not extradinordinary, just ordinary. Food was above average, too. My only... More

What an awesome hotel! This is only my second trip to Put in Bay. I will never stay anywhere else but here. We had a king size suite. It was very spacious and clean.The only problem I had was figuring out the microwave! However the front desk was very helpful. It had a great view of the lake as well... More

What started out as a nice getaway with friends was ruined by an over zealous security staff on a power trip. Your money will be better spent else where. I was willing to overlook the lack luster dirty rooms, but not after our experience with the staff. Good weekend lost after this experience. Thanks Bayshore!

I wanted to give this place a better review but the front desk personnel are so rude that it is hard to do so. First of all, I agree with many of the other posts in terms of cleanliness and location. Both are great. The outdoor pools are lovely and to wake up with a view of the lake is... More

Can't say enough good things about this place. Best place on the island to stay. We have a first floor room that leads right out to the pools with the lake right behind them. Only hotel on the island located on the lake. We have had breakfast, lunch and dinner at the restaurant which is located right behind the hotel... More
