This resort is on the bay. Get a room on the beach for great views of the bay. The breakfast buffet is fine, but always crowded. Better to get your food and head back to the room if you want to sit down. Staff is friendly and helpful.

We were on the beach level & loved the convenience of the beautiful beach right outside the doors. We didn't have the patio room, but I think our room was quieter because of it. We had a view of the sunsets from our room, which was nice. The rooms don't have a fridge or microwaves which could be a problem... More

Recently we held our annual family reunion here and were very pleased. The rooms were large and comfortable, the breakfast buffet was far superior to most, and the facilities for a large get-together were outstanding. Additionally, the front desk people were exceptionally friendly and helpful. We immediately booked several rooms for next year. Our only complaint was having to rent... More

We were only in Traverse city for one night, & we didn't have any reservations. We were there pretty late in the afternoon, so we wanted a place our teenagers could swim & relax! Although in June the water is pretty chilly to go swimming, the pool was just what we all needed! We'd been driving the Great Lakes circle... More

We come to the Bayshore every other year with our extended family for Cherry Festival/Blue Angels Air Show. The Bayshore never disappoints. The Staff is so Friendly and Helpful! They make you feel right at home - it's always so hard to leave :) The rooms are very nice. Wish they had refrigerators in them - keep hoping every time... More

This is a hotel that you would actually want to come back to again. The indoor pool area is climate controlled. It was nice and warm in there. We went in the off season, so this was a huge plus. The free breakfast was great. The hotel was very clean. Staff is very attentive and responds fast. The balcony overlooking... More

Situated right on the water, our non-bay-facing balcony faced a wall of trees, which was very pleasant. Breakfast was tasty. The rooms were well-appointed and lovely. Breakfast was busy, but plentiful. A lovely stay. The pool and hot tub were in a fun room with kites and sea gulls.

This hotel is a nice place to stay, right on Grand Traverse Bay and close to downtown. The hotel staff are very nice and helpful.
