We had a bay front room on the second floor with a fantastic view. The property has all the amenities you would expect and a prime location. The staff is extremely helpful and friendly. Would definitely stay again.

Loved visiting Traverse City while staying at this delightful resort hotel. Their indoor pool is very inviting, and in the morning, they offer a simple breakfast that helps you start your day of sightseeing. The rooms are clean and very comfortable.

We needed to be in Traverse City while a family member was in Munson Hospital so we looked online at our options near the downtown and the hospital. We were not disappointed at all. This is a lovely hotel with a large inviting lobby with big chairs and a fireplace. Indoor pool and hot tub can be clearly seen from...

Stayed here in May of 2016 before Memorial Day Weekend. Nice hotel. I'll be back. The bed was comfortable but not the best I've ever had. but the room was clean and we were fortunate to be on the beach level, okay, ground level but hey, the ground IS a beach. It was also a waterfront room. We couldn't have...

We decided to go north on a two night stay in Traverse just to get 'out of dodge'. We had a Groupon for this location and it did not disappoint. The room was huge, beds clean and comfy - bedding was newer and nice, TV pretty tiny for the room size, shower is laughable but I understand that today's shower...

My mom was having surgery and we needed a place to stay. Knowing it was off-season, I figured lets stay at a hotel we could never afford to stay at in peak season. I loved this place!

I stayed at the Bayshore for a few nights to celebrate Christmas with my extended family. The suite we had was fabulous; king size bed in it's own room, well-equiped kitchen, large open living and dining rooms. It was so comfortable there. My entire family was able to fit easily and with comfort. We took advantage of the adorable swimming...

This hotel was clean and incredible quiet and helpful. I had a friend who missed a flight and they still used their shuttle to get her as I was checking out. The staff was so friendly and the rooms clean with incredibly comfortable beds. The pool area is super nice. I would choose this hotel over any other!

We enjoyed our stay at the Bayshore Resort. The Breakfast Buffet was excellent! A big variety is served. The view from the room was of the lake. The location is close to downtown and there is lots of parking. The pool area looks beautiful and the service was great and the person at the desk was very helpful.

Thank Patrika
