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...

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
