Our children paid for the hotel for Christmas and it was perfect. I can't complain about anything except the Mayflies and that has nothing to do with them. We were on the third floor and there was a great view of the water. The pool was nice and the tiki bar was great also. We had a fish dinner at... More

Where do I start....$ 300 a night for a mediocre ( at best ) no alcohol policy ( can't bring it in the hotel ) but they will sure sell it to you at their " tiki " bar and restaurant....that's the key....as long as THEY sell it to you its fine ! Couldn't use the pool because of the... More

So the elevator was out the ENTIRE weekend ! My mother, who has Multiple Sclerosis was on the 3rd floor! When we asked about switching to a lower level floor they offered to give us an additional room on the first floor BUT would have to charge us an additional $185 We had already paid $1800 for the 2 suites...

Well, where shall I start? The room itself, which was ground level, had a view of the lake but it was also an amazing shot of the pool fence. The "view" was impossible due to being feet away from the pool. You get a better shot of the people swimming then you did of the lake. The dresser in our... More

The hotel is very clean, nice to have our own patio to the pools and tiki bar and a few block walk to town. Golf cart rental is reasonably priced. Did not eat on the property, but mixed drinks were good. Weekday prices are reasonable, but weekend prices were crazy. All in all, wonderful, quiet place to stay.

I've been staying at the Bayshore since it opened... it is a nice respite from the hullabaloo that goes along with staying downtown. Things to know: * You can not take alcohol/coolers into the hotel, and yes, they check, religiously * You must have an ID that matches the credit card you made your reservation with * The first floor...

Visited the island on business and stayed the night. Island was quite pleasant in mid May, without the frenetic pace of the summer season. BayShore was a great place to stay with good rates and comfortable rooms. Stayed in a king - jacuzzi room that also had a great view of Kelly's Island. Plan to stay here again!

Stayed here for a mid-week getaway. The weather was gorgeous blue sky, fluffy white clouds,sunshine and 70's both days. The view of the water alone was worth the price we paid for the room. Because our deck was screened in, we slept with the sliding door open all night, enjoying the fresh lake breeze.Will definitely be back again during this... More

This is the only resort on Put-in-Bay that is waterfront and all rooms have the spectacular view. It is also just a very short walk to town. The property is overall a four star, but people very friendly and accommodating. The pools and outdoor pool bar is also a nice feature.

We moved from another hotel on the island after seeing the Bayshore from the top of Perry's Victory & International Peace Memorial. It proved to a very good move on ALL aspects until we had to sleep on the most uncomfortable hotel bed we have ever slept on. It seems they forgot to add actual mattress padding when the factory...
