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...

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.

This is a lovely three story hotel with ample off street parking. Landscaping is nice and the Grand Traverse Bay is right out the back door. Rooms are spacious and our third-floor room had a small balcony with a view of the bay. Beds are comfortable, the facilities are up to date, and the staff is helpful. The hotel has...

The Bayshore was clean, the staff friendly & the views were beautiful but the decor is very dated & the beds are horribly uncomfortable. We booked on a color tour weekend & paid premium pricing, our night before at a hotel that was $200 less was expensive had beds that were more comfortable. Price does not always equal better quality......

We've stayed here for the past 3 times we've gone to Traverse City. We booked it on a whim and we've been returning every year since! Being from Florida, we don't get to sleep with the windows open too often. So, when we visit each Fall, we love the fact that we can sleep with the balancy door open and...
