The past four years three couples would travel to Put n Bay for a few day get away. This year was terrible. The rooms were unclean, When you walked into the bathroom your slippers stuck to the floor. The amount of TV stations were limited. One of our couples went into their room heard a buzzing sound and they followed... More

If your going to stay on put in bay you should stay here the view is beautiful all rooms face the lake and you are really close I would say you should stay on the third floor for the best views. Good size rooms and private balconies,the beds are not the the best but over all the rooms are nice.... More

Just completed our annual trip to PIB and the Bayshore Resort....Still the best place to stay at ON PIB! Rooms are great, view is spectacular, the pool and hot tub rock, and the staff is amazing! Andrea and friends at the TIKI Bar are awesome and everyone who seems to stay there loves the Bayshore. Breakfast outside the Waterfront Restaurant... More

We have come here for years. Beautiful views, pool and hot tub. Have a drink or two from the tiki bar. Low key atmosphere but fun. A short walk to town but far enough to relax while having dinner outside looking out at the beautiful lake in peace.

Recently stayed for the first time at the Bay Shore Resort. We had stayed at other hotels on Put-In-Bay in the past. The Bay Shore is definitely the best hotel on the island. The lake views from every room was breathtaking. Will never stay anywhere else. Staff was excellent and rooms very clean.

All rooms face Lake Erie to the east. The rooms are wonderful. Looked like a new coat of paint. We have stayed here all but their first year. The staff are wonderful and helpful. Noticeably improved was the housekeeping for the room. Straightened up and restocked each day. We also like that it is out of downtown Put-In-Bay. Much quieter,... More

I received my credit card receipt attached to a letter thanking me for making the reservation, confirmation number, check in date, room type, and stating the package includes 2 round trip tickets on the Miller Ferry, 1 night stay, and golf cart rental day of...

I have no complaints about your establishment. It is a wonderful place. It was mayfly season and they were a pain.... but other than that it was great. The pool was nice with the tiki bar and you can get food from the restaurant. I had a fish dinner while sitting at the tiki bar. Our stay was comfortable. We... More

Have stayed at this hotel since it opened - bringing a large number of family and friends to the island every year. Definitely paying for the view at this resort and nothing else. Clear to me after this trip that the property is under terrible management and customer service has declined significantly. Members of our group were given a room... More
