Eagle B wrote a review Jan 2023
Byron Center, Michigan15 contributions7 helpful votes
The staff was friendly when we arrived and the room was nice. Starting the next morning things went downhill fast. The breakfast consisted of a "Covid box" (1 entrée, 1 tiny tangerine, 2 oz of nasty O.J., 1 bottle of water). The shower was only just warm (if you turned it all the way to hot). This happened both mornings. The second night we decided to use the hot tub. One couple had their less than a year baby in with them and another couple had the 1-2 year old with them. A 8-10 year old decide it was O.K. to just jump into the hot tub. Management's comment, "We don't have any rules about hot tub and pool use: we leave that up to the parents".

Response from , General Manager at Bayshore Resort
Responded 1 week ago
Hello! I believe you may have the wrong hotel property in this review. We have a complimentary continental breakfast that has a few egg options, toasts, fruits, coffees, teas, juices, yogurts, cereals, make-your-own waffles, etc. We do NOT offer a boxed breakfast like you are describing. Hopefully you are able to redirect your review to the correct property. Thank you.

We (2 couples) went for a weekend in November. The resort was very clean, and the staff were very helpful with our special requests. The pool area was one of the cleanest I have ever seen. The resort is on the beach which is great for the summer I am sure, but we got a discount being off season.

Quick one night get away for our 38th anniversary. Very friendly and helpful staff. Room with had a jet bath as well as a great view of the bay. Hot tub and pool just the right temperature. Breakfast was good as well, my wife really liked the cinnamon rolls. Close to downtown, within our walking distance. Planning on a February return for a couple of nights next time! Had a great visit.

What a great place! Off season, so nabbed a jetted tub room that faced the lake with a balcony! Room was clean, staff were superb! Breakfast was great, everything you could want! Location was right on the main drag, close to everything! Quiet and cozy!

Great locations, staff pretty friendly, clean, love the water view and can sit on the balcony and enjoy the view. Has everything you could need in the room or hotel, would definitely stay again and recommend. There is a nice pool my kids would love, we’ll be back with them next time.

We stayed three nights at this beautiful hotel. The location is great, right on the beach and within comfortable walking distance from the quaint and lovely downtown area and restaurants. Check-in was very nice and personable. The room and bathroom were spacious and very well maintained and clean. The pool and hot tub area were absolutely spotless. We can highly recommend this hotel and would stay there again.

We have been staying at the Bayshore for many years and always have enjoyed our time when in the TC area. This year was no exception. From the front desk staff, all the way to the breakfast attendants were friendly and made you feel at home. Jonathon, the gentleman who drove us to dinner in the shuttle, and we enjoyed the conversations each night. The room was great, we needed not to ask for anything during our three night stay. we will be back next year and of course make our plans to stay at the Bayshore!

We spent 3 days here and enjoyed it very much. The room was spacious and well appointed (good mattress and pillows) with nice amenities. Appreciated the extra sink and mirror outside the bathroom. Loved our balcony view of the bay and the wide, sandy beach. We sat out there in the evenings with the friendly ducks (which we did NOT feed! lol). Decent breakfast, but there was no restaurant dining, which would've been really great. We could walk into Traverse city from the resort by using sidewalks. There was a big indoor pool, but we had zero interest in that. Maybe nice for families who stay there during colder months. Staff nice, service good, hotel clean.

The hotel was right on the shore. The hotel had a friendly staff, was clean, was quiet, comfortable & was safe. The breakfast was included & very good. The downside was it had no safe & the pool area was very stuffy & smelled of chemicals.
