We visited the Bayshore Resort for a soccer tournament. The room was nice and clean. Breakfast was what you would expect, but the coffee was amazing. The private beach was beautiful. The front desk was also very helpful. We needed a space for the team to all eat dinner together and they let us use a conference room. My kids loved the pool and the arcade. In short, I can't say enough good things. If there was any downside, it is that the parking spaces were a bit narrow and getting out of the lot can be difficult because of traffic on Front Street. But I would absolutely stay here again.

My husband and I were visiting Traverse City for 3 days. We first stopped at the Comfort Inn and were quoted a price of almost $900 for a 3 night stay! No way! So we drove down the road a bit and found this lovely place. This place is outstanding!! Right on the bay with a beautiful beach with lots of lounge chairs, tables with umbrellas and chairs and beautiful views. Every staff member was pleasant and cheerful. The room was spacious and clean. Had a very large vanity sink in bathroom and additional sink in hallway with lighted mirror. Coffee, tea and hot chocolate are available all the time in the lobby. Laundry room is also available along with an arcade room. It’s also in walking distance to downtown and very easy to bike to the TART trail. We loved our stay here and if we are ever in the area again will definitely stay here.

Nice property. Great location, wonderful staff. Very good value for the money..Very clean facility in every aspect. Because of covid, housekeeping is on a request basis, but is available of you need anything. close to turtle creek casino, and sleeping bear sand dunes. Beautiful beach. Get a bayside room with a balcony and relax.

It does right everything a 3 star hotel is supposed to do right. Perfect location, nice little beach and indoor pool. I specially liked the spacious rooms with two sinks. The staff is super friendly and helpful. My only comments are that the carpets need some cleaning and they should add more fresh fruits for breakfast.
