We stayed here for one night. A nice hotel with a pretty view of Grand Traverse Bay. The rooms are ok, the beds are rock hard! Worst night sleep and if your taller (my boyfriend is 6'4") the showers are super short. Very dated rooms. Pretty okay place to stay.

It's nice to have a good, quality hotel that you can always count on when visiting your favorite destinations. The Bayshore Resort has become that for us. We recently stayed there for the 4th or 5th time. In the past, we'd always stayed in the off-season, when they offer great low rates. This time it was the busy summer season,...

Well kept, spacious, right on the beach, walking distance to downtown. Wish we could have stayed more than night! It would have been nice to have more amenities like a mini fridge or better coffee for the price of the room, but we were very happy with our stay.

My daughters and I traveled to the Traverse City area and stayed at the Bayshore Resort for 3 nights. The staff was friendly an very helpful. The property was clean and offered a nice beach area and paddle board/boat rentals (a nice extra). Breakfast was adequate but not spectacular (coffee was excellent). The location was excellent - a .7 miles...

This small hotel is located right on the Bay with a lovely private beach where boats can be easily rented. The rooms are comfortable and the service is excellent. There is a solid hot and cold breakfast in the morning and coffee/tea etc all day. The location is outstanding--just a few block walk from an excellent downtown and the waterfront...

I've stayed here 3 times in the last 3 years, and just reserved a 4th trip. It is a quiet, clean, comfortable hotel. The decor reminds me of a B&B, without the price tag :) We've always enjoyed our say here!

Family of 6 had two lakefront rooms. Although I agree it needs a little updating, we loved the place. Very clean, workers were friendly. The beach is excellent. Easy to navigate. Indoor pool is a bonus. Location is perfect. Breakfast was nice. We will definitely be back. This place is great for families with small or teenage kids.

Located right on the lake with a sandy beach. The location contributes to a high nightly rate. There are no safes or refrigerators in the room. Complimentary breakfast is good. Pool is nice as well as the proximity to the beach.

If you are looking for a very nice place to stay this resort is it. I stayed here with my family when I ran the Bayshore Marathon in Traverse City. It is a great resort which offers a beautiful view of Grand Traverse Bay and it is in walking distance of the Marathon. This resort offers beautiful, nicely decorated rooms,...

Bayshore Resort is a fantastic place to stay and we will be noting our visit and will definitely be consider staying here again when visiting Traverse City. We were specifically looking for a hotel that had beach access and this one did with a private roped off area for the kids to play. We stayed at the beach most of...
