We stayed here for a wedding in late June, and we were impressed with the service, the location, and the quality of the hotel.
The Bayshore is right on Lake Michigan, with a view of both the Mission and Leelanau peninsulas. There's a beach accessible from the bottom floor of the hotel, with jet ski and boat rentals available. The free breakfast is great - if it's nice out, make sure you take your plate outside and sit on the beach.
Our room had a partial view, which means if you went out on the balcony you could see a little bit of the lake. Still, no problems with the room. It was clean, spacious, and the wireless worked just fine. The parking lot in front was never full. Just be aware that the traffic on Rte 31 is quite busy - we heard a rear-end collision one morning while we were packing our car.
Downtown is maybe 10 minutes away, although depending on the weather you may want to drive.
