My husband bought a groupon for a trip we were planning on taking and boy was that ever a great deal!!! This is a nice little place that is nothing fancy but very warm and welcoming. It served us just right for the one night we did stay here. The bartender at the pool was very friendly. We got a... More

Upon arriving at Bay Lodging for our weekend at Put-In-Bay we were told our reservation was cancelled but they would take us to their sister hotel, Put-In-Bay Resort where there was a room for us. Upon arriving there, we were told by LeAnne that they did not have an opening and there was nothing she could do for us. Neither... More

Second year in a row we have stayed at Bay Shore. I think it's the best location of all hotels - on the lake, but also walking distance to downtown. Service was as good as last time (picky people complain about the service, but they're packed out every summer, they have a lot going on, deal with it). Made requests... More

Let me start off by saying we have been going to the Bayshore for eight years now. The location cannot be beat. Its nice that they have a bar there but that can get expensive. What was up this year was unexpected. Why wasn't the grass cut? What was up with the pools not being heated? Not up to the... More

We stay here every year and it is by far the best hotel on the island. That being said, I wish that we would have kayaks this year and flat screen tv with satellite . This year they upgraded wifi but we found it to be slow and not working. Highly recommend but hoping they upgrade next year.

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
