About Bayshore Resort

Featuring an indoor pool and relaxing whirlpool tub, Bayshore Resort is a charming Victorian-style hotel overlooking the amazing Grand Traverse Bay.

Traditionally decorated accommodations feature homely amenities like king or queen-size beds and cable TVs. All include furnished balconies with pool or bay views, except standard rooms, while suites add cosy fireplaces and an in-room spa.

Travellers arriving by air will find that shuttle transportation to the hotel is free of charge. Once settled, the front desk will assist with boat rental or directions to the fitness centre and games room. Business facilities are also available on site.

A wholesome continental breakfast is included in the room price at Bayshore Resort. Those looking for alternative options will find a charming old-school diner called Rounds about 15 minutes away on foot.

The County Civic Center and the Dennos Museum – a special little art centre – are just less than a five-minute drive from the property.

Positive Reviews

Wonderful views and amenities.

Guests said they enjoyed great views of the beach and Lake Michigan from some of the rooms; people also had positive things to say about the amenities the hotel offered, including the pool and hot tub.

Fantastic breakfast offerings.

If starting off the day with a good meal is important to you, you will be happy to know that people said the breakfast provided was excellent with a variety of options.

Great staff and location.

Is customer service also important to you? Visitors said that staff members were very friendly and helpful, more than willing to assist with guest questions about things to see and do in the area. People also liked the hotel's central location and the fact that they could easily walk to the downtown area.

Negative Reviews

You may want to bring some ear plugs.

There were a few comments about high noise levels at this hotel - particularly in the evenings. Some complaints included children running up and down the hallways and adults being loud into late hours of the night. Though not all guests complained about this, you may want to bring a pair of ear plugs anyway.

Bedding could be improved.

There were some negative remarks about pillows being uncomfortable and the mattresses on the beds being replaced as some of them seemed old, lumpy and outdated.

May not be the best budget choice.

If you are traveling on a budget, you may want to note that it was mentioned the cost of a night's stay can be a little high.
