This hotel is a nice place to stay, right on Grand Traverse Bay and close to downtown. The hotel staff are very nice and helpful. Breakfast is included, and it is on a par with Hampton Inn or similar places. The indoor pool is big, and the beach is clean. Get a room overlooking the bay, and you can see...

This was a very relaxing stop for us as we drove around Lake Michigan. The views were wonderful. We had a suite and loved it. There was ample space. Breakfast was ok- not amazing. The pool is nice and heated! The beach was great. Staff was very helpful. We arrived several hours early and were still able to check in....

The hotel was very clean, the staff was extremely helpful, and the location was beautiful! We did not have breakfast at the hotel since we had to leave very early. The breakfast did, however, smell delicious!

The Bayshore is a nice resort off Lake Michigan. Overall, the staff is friendly and the rooms are very clean. The views are spectacular from the balcony. What would I change? The hallways on the third floor had a distinct, "smoky" aroma to them. Management should check the air intakes and exhausts in the hallway. The free breakfast was really...

I stayed at the Bayshore while presenting at a work conference. While I attend this conference every year, this was my first time staying at the Bayshore. I will definitely return. Although the hotel is less modern than other hotels I've stayed in Traverse City, it was very clean. The decor was tastefully decorated and customer service was top notch....

Not a full service hotel. Only thing special are rooms with private balconies right on beach and Traverse Bay. Rooms are nice and clean. Free buffet-style breakfast. Free wifi. Free parking on hotel grounds. No microwaves or refrigerators. TV is small. About 1/2 mile from "downtown". We walked, but very busy, noisy street so I would not recommend it. View...
