We had a fantastic view of the water or should I say it was on the water plus a great breakfast and all for a good price. It was great to get up in the morning & have our breakfast on the balcony. Or sit on the beach with your toes in the sand!

Reservation made well in advance via block of rooms for wedding guests. Reservation for 3 nights. Able to check in a bit early which made our day run a bit smoother. Top floor room with 2 queen beds, although no view. Didn't spend the extra $ for a view since we wouldn't be in the room except to sleep. No... More

This hotel is close to downtown Traverse City (Walking distance). It is also a short cab ride (Cherry Capital Cab) for those late nights on Union St! I highly recommend getting a lake view, add the in-room Jacuzzi if it is a fall/winter stay! The free breakfast is not bad for free. Head over to the Omelette Shop for the... More

The Bayshore has been a family favorite for many years. The pool and hot tub are favorites for our kids, but listening to the waves lap on the sandy beach at night is what brings the rest of us back every year. We so enjoy the convenience of the boat and wave runner rentals being right at the beach in... More

We booked a 2 night stay through Expedia for a King Spa room. The room was spacious with a jetted tub in the room. The shower was very small. We had a partial view of the bay. The breakfast included was good. It is a located near the downtown area.

Nice hotel over all . Close to everything. Good off season rates. Room was pretty clean except the carpet had some crumbs between the beds. Decor is dated and beds weren't all that comfortable. The man at the front desk was very friendly and professional.

Very nice oversized rooms with great views right on the beach. Large bathrooms with additional sink area outside the bathroom. Very handy to downtown Traverse City, and the Old Mission Peninsula wineries. Nice free hot breakfast.
