Met friends here for dinner and drinks. Server was struggling, drinks took forever and she was awkward like it was her first day or something. Beer was cold, so that was good. Perch dinner was below expectations, cold and soggy. Wings were very good, would order those again for sure. Pizza bread was tasty as well. There were several inebriated... More

Love this hotel and beach, Room very clean and spacious, all housekeeping were accommodating. Front desk staff very courteous and friendly. Beach was clean with some covered lounge chairs. Had a side view room which was as good as lakefront. Glad it had a fridge. This hotel is directly across from a campground, so you always have the smell of... More

We had a room that literally opened up right to the sandy beach! Loved it! Sweet little beach area PERFECT for kids to play and have fun! Great lake, service and comfy room! Our room even had a mini fridge which is so helpful when traveling with small kiddos.

Lovely beach, clean and friendly. Enjoyed the breakfast and pool during 6 night stay. Easy to find and near many amenities- some can be walked or biked. Ability to have a bonfire on the beach was so nice and the sunsets were amazing!

This was our fourth stay here at Parkshore. Love the beach, the restaurant/lounge has great food and wonderful service. It does get loud so be prepared. Rooms are OK, not very modern, furniture looks like it's the original stuff, lots of stains and scruffy. Views from beachside balconies are beautiful. Very peaceful. Try to get rooms high and away from... More

Hi Nichole, We do have a very friendly hotel dog who is in the lobby sometimes. We apologize for not specifying who he was or why he was in there. We also addressed the musty smell in the hallway that same day by cleaning the carpets. We appreciate your business and hope to see you again in the near future. More

Overall, we enjoyed our five-night stay. We took advantage of the area and weather, and spent a limited time in the room, basically to sleep. This turned out to be a good thing because there was an overpowering odor in the room. Our family decided it best resembled burned bacon. We stayed five nights, and despite the housekeepers attempts to... More

Good location on the beach, rooms with water view were nice. Bathroom is updated, beds are comfortable but the pillows were very firm. Good for family vacation value, mini fridge in room. The furniture is dated and the fitness room doesn't exist. Breakfast was not included as listed in some advertising. They had lots of beach chairs and fire pits... More
