We visit TC a couple of times a year and typically rent a cottage outside of the downtown or stay at the Holiday Inn west bay. The prices for the Holiday Inn were outrageous for the weekend we stayed, so I booked Bayshore on the recommendation of a friend. The location was slightly farther than the Holiday Inn, but we...

Traverse CIty was not a cheap place to stay. All the hotels seemed way over-priced to me and this was no exception. The prices at the Bayshore Resort were competitive when compared to other local properties so I guess you just have to accept that this is what you have to pay if you want to stay here. Once you...

I just stayed at the bay shore resort for the past two nights. My stay was not as expected and supremely disappointing I have rarely complained about staying in a hotel room. I travel at least 60-90 days a year and have stayed in 2-5 star hotels all over the world. I offer these observations because my stay at the... More

This hotel was awesome! It had amazing views. A great pool. It's really close to downtown. There were definitely lots of things to do in the city. Was a really nice, fun city. Will definitely be going back!

Compared to other places in Traverse City the Bayshore Resort offers a lot. Our room had hot tubs in the room. The beach is all the entertainment the grandchildren need for the whole weekend. They used paddle boards, kayaks, jet skis, and we even rented a pontoon one afternoon and pulled the children around on a float. However, the grandchildren... More

This hotel has some amazing folks who listen and try to help so be sure that you explain what you need and they will do everything they can! (John actually picked up my husband's Birthday cake from the bakery on the way into work and delivered it to our room prior to check in!) Everybody is friendly and helpful and... More

A wonderful hotel with great amenities! It is right on the beach and you can rent paddle boards from a company there. While our room didn't look out onto the beach, we had a nice balcony that overlooked trees and ducks. It was a nice area to sit and have coffee. They have coffee and tea in the lobby all... More

This was our first time staying at Bayshore and we absolutely loved it! This hotel has old Victorian charm and the location is 5🌟. I was pleased that I was able to make same day reservations in August! The beach is outstanding, right on the bay with amazing views. There are boat and jet ski rentals right on the beach,... More

One of my favorite hotels in Traverse City, as it is so close to downtown, on the West Bay, has a nice pool, and breakfast. But most of all, is just taking a chair from the patio after dark, and sitting in a few inches of water, it is so pleasant. From sitting in the water, you can go in... More

Hotel is right on the beach and within walking distance of downtown which has plenty of shops and places to eat. The beach area was nice with ample amount of chairs and a small deck with tables and chairs to just go out and sit and enjoy the beach. The rooms were clean large and comfortable. We did not have...
