Very nice hotel, missing some of the usual amenities; no free breakfast, no gym. Golf carts at hotels had to be back by 10:00 pm - entertainment on the island began around 9:30 pm. Had to take cart back and walk back downtown. Overnight rentals would have been nice.

First, the location. It's stunning. Get up early and watch the sunrise before the crowds descend. On-site outdoor tiki bar, a full-service restaurant (they even take poolside orders), and 2 pools + 1 hot tub. The crowd is a bit older, the majority aged 30-50+, but still quite lively - especially poolside on Saturday. The hallways and room were clean... More

We have stayed at the BayShore Resort almost every year it's been open (missed the first year because we didn't do our homework). All rooms face east and are lake front. Pools and an on site restaurant are great!!! Visit the Tiki bar and enjoy your favorite refreshment while looking out at the lake and the boats. The staff are... More

Hotel was nice and clean, room was spacious and outdoor patio was so nice. Debbie at check in was super nice very informative and such a great smile to see when we first checked in. Debbie was an asset to the hotel and makes you feel right at home. Would stay here again. Pools are also nice.

I am incredibly disappointed with the customer service at this hotel. I checked in on a Thursday, and was informed that I was booked for four rooms instead of the three we needed. I had booked two large suites in January, and then called back in April to add a third room. In that same conversation in April, I confirmed... More

We're regulars, and have never been disappointed by the BayShore. Spotless QUIET rooms, the absolute best view on all of South Bass, great swimming pools, and a Tiki Bar that cannot be beat. This year they even have new TVs, but with the awesome swimming pools and the 5-minute walk to the nightlife and shopping, aside from checking on the... More

Had dinner at the Waterfront Restaurant with group of ten. Service was excellent, as was the food. They brought together enough tables for us to sit together and service was both timely and very friendly.

Insider's Hint: walk thru the double doors past the reception desk, out the door toward the lake and off to your right you will see the Tilki Hut, which is the best bar on the Island. You may sit at the bar or at one of the many tables The views are incredible, it is never too crowded, the patrons... More

Rooms clean and large. Two great pools....and the great tiki bar. Rooms on second and third floor have large screened balconies. The on site restaurant has great food. Staff friendly and helpful. Nothing bad to say about this hotel. Love it!

We stayed one night at the BayShore Resort and had a very nice time. Yes, we checked in before the room was ready. But, as others have indicated, we were able to put our carry on luggage in a open room off the lobby. We rented a golf cart for the day, knowing it needed to be returned by 10... More
