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

The real question here is "How does this property compare to other hotels on the island/" For all I know, this may be the BEST the island has to offer, and therefore should get a 5 star. On the mainland, this would get a 3 star. We usually stay at bed and breakfasts while at Put-In-Bay, but during the July... More

After touring the island we were so glad we stayed at this resort. Other hotels were too loud and full of drunk young people. This resort had all the amenities we wanted, beautiful views and a wonderful relaxing atmosphere.

Not only is this hotel overpriced and nothing special, the customer service is THE WORST. I understand the need to control crazy kids wanting to have wild parties in their rooms, but not everyone needs to be treated like a kid. My husband and I frequent PIB and recently booked a room here for a Sunday night. We had been... More

The room rate was high for the area...We thought we would have a better than average experience by paying top dollar....The rooms are large but only because they insist on putting a Jacuzzi tub in them....the space could be put to much better use....Even the TV was lacking...something out of your grandmother's basement..........The beds were like sleeping on rocks....the ridiculous...

Location - very nice. Price - outrageous for the amenities ($276 per night for king room). 3 couples average age of 59 are not looking to tear up a hotel. Dirty carpet breeds bacteria and disease. After arriving around 11:30 AM we checked in at the hotel and placed our bags in a room until our rooms were available later... More

We were traveling to Pittsburgh to visit friends and they were on a trip to Put in Bay. They invited us to come and join them. So we threw caution to the wind - pulled into a roadside park and packed lightly for the trip. We booked a ticket on the ferry boat and arrived minutes later. They picked us... More
