We stayed at the Bayshore for one night in late June with our 3 young children. This was our 2nd time staying overnight at Put-in-Bay and this hotel was wonderful.
We arrived early (before lunch) and were not able to check in until 3pm. There was an open room right off the lobby where you could put your suitcases. I was a little nervous about leaving our stuff, so we took our valuables with us and left our clothes in the room. We were free to use the pool as soon as we got there. There were bathrooms available to change if we wanted.
There is a nice outside bar that serves a limited food menu. There's also a local eatery/deli that will deliver there for free. Our kids loved sitting at the bar and drinking "Shirley Temples"!
When we finally checked in, the rooms were great. We had requested an upper floor when we reserved and were put on the 3rd (top) floor. Very clean and large. Two queen sized beds, a large TV cabinet, a table and chair plus a balcony. We really liked that the balcony was completely screened in. We were able to leave the patio door open all night and listen to the lake without having to worry about bugs. The patio is a good size, with two chairs and overlooks the 2 pools and the lake.
The bathroom is huge with a large sink and counter and a glass-enclosed shower. Our kids were quite impressed with the shower.
The pool area is nice. Towels are available and there are plenty of chairs. There are 2 pools and a good-sized jacuzzi. All of these are set right on the lake with a nice view of Perry's Monument.
The clientele there was nice. Rooms are a little more expensive there, but it was worth it to not have to deal with loud partiers. It seemed to be more of a family-oriented hotel. All-in-all we were very pleased.
The only complaint I have was I wish they served a breakfast. Then it would be perfect. We'll definitely be back!
