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...

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...

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...

I wanted to take my 2 youngest 17 and 27 year old adult children for a lil get away. Never been to Put-in-bay, so was very excited. I had over 8 surgeries within 4 years, so again very excited to get away. The 1st Hotel we stayed at was absolutely terrible. So we took a ride around looking for somewhere...

Great place by the lake BUT the rooms are in need of a good cleaning and updating. The toliet was the worse. Very gross. The promotion was not explained in detail at the booking. We have stayed there 3 years ago. The upper floors are the best.

We have been coming to the BayShore Resort for over 10 years now and we usually come down with TEN people or more. We would not be returning here year after year if the hotel was sub-standard, or if the staff treated us poorly. With that being said, we rarely have any complaints. Our rooms have always been clean 98%...

The past four years three couples would travel to Put n Bay for a few day get away. This year was terrible. The rooms were unclean, When you walked into the bathroom your slippers stuck to the floor. The amount of TV stations were limited. One of our couples went into their room heard a buzzing sound and they followed...

If your going to stay on put in bay you should stay here the view is beautiful all rooms face the lake and you are really close I would say you should stay on the third floor for the best views. Good size rooms and private balconies,the beds are not the the best but over all the rooms are nice....
