Great location, right on beach of Lake Michigan and about a three minute drive to middle of downtown Traverse City. You could walk but it's not the nicest road that connects to the downtown shops. The beach is lovely, directly behind the hotel. It was too cold to spend much time outside but in the summer it would be awesome!...

Great stay for the price. Staff was very friendly and the location was ideal for the needs of our stay. The room was clean and exactly as described on the website. The arcade and laundry were great additional ammenities as well. The only downside was the poor water pressure in the shower and the length of time the water took...

Very nice room with an amazing view. The staff was friendly and helpful and even recommended some great places to eat. Everything seemed very clean and smelled fresh. The only complaint was the breakfast and it was not all that bad. I will be back again.

I was given a Gift Certificate for Bayshore that we used for my Birthday. Before our arrival the front desk upgraded our room to a waterfront view. The room was clean and the staff very friendly. We are not breakfast individuals so I can not rate that part of the stay. We will be back.

The off season price is excellent, especially going in at a group rate. The hotel was clean and tidy, there were nice seating areas outside of the rooms, and the exit right onto the beach was nice for an afternoon stroll. The only issues I had was the location on such a busy street (which the hotel can do nothing...

Our room was clean and spacious. Loved the whirlpool tub. The mattress was hard and I prefer a softer one so my sleep was average. My husband was very comfortable and slept well. The buffet breakfast was very good, although the omelet was not quite hot enough. All in all though, it was a great stay and I would recommend...

We love this hotel. Definitely coming back. Our view of Lake Michigan was amazing. I'm glad we decided to get a room with a jacuzzi. Very clean hotel. The pool is really nice! Staff was awesome! The breakfast buffet was very clean & fresh. The hotel is located near everything.

The rooms are comfortable but the hotel is more of the motel quality. Service was good, the bed comfortable and the breakfast each morning was more than just continental. However, the decor is more motel (hanging rod vs closet, toilet without a lid, basic grade room finishes). Would not pay resort prices to stay here.
