We actually paid for a room at a hotel nearby, and decided we needed to upgrade. This hotel was cheaper and amazing. It was clean, the staff was great, and for being a picky person I have nothing bad to say. I will be staying here from now on!

The plus is the location. You can walk to all the fun stuff. The minus is the hotel needs a major update..wi fi is bad, beds are awful and uncomfortable. The staff is super friendly and we love the location that's why we keep going back.

The towels were nice, as was the screened in porch. However the bedding and the mattress were in poor condition. The room wasn't dirty, however it it didn't feel clean either. All in all, I have been in worse hotels, and I've been in better hotels. Put in Bay is really fun, but I would not stay in the Bay...

Was my first time to Put-In-Bay and wanted something a little more quiet. Was NOT disappointed! Really enjoyed my stay! Pool view/access from the room. Tiki bar was open and the music was playing! The bed was comfy, the a/c worked great! Linens were soft and pillows were nice. And, the breakfast they serve at the restaurant was fabulous! I...

We stayed at BayShore Resort the weekend before Labor Day. We found the resort to be quiet, clean, and the staff to be friendly. The pool was nice and it was great having a bar on site for drinks by the pool. Not at all a "spring break" type atmosphere the weekend we were there, but instead it was a...

Very nice hotel, missing some of the usual amenities; no free breakfast, no gym. Golf carts at hotels had to be back by 10:00 pm - entertainment on the island began around 9:30 pm. Had to take cart back and walk back downtown. Overnight rentals would have been nice.

First, the location. It's stunning. Get up early and watch the sunrise before the crowds descend. On-site outdoor tiki bar, a full-service restaurant (they even take poolside orders), and 2 pools + 1 hot tub. The crowd is a bit older, the majority aged 30-50+, but still quite lively - especially poolside on Saturday. The hallways and room were clean...

We have stayed at the BayShore Resort almost every year it's been open (missed the first year because we didn't do our homework). All rooms face east and are lake front. Pools and an on site restaurant are great!!! Visit the Tiki bar and enjoy your favorite refreshment while looking out at the lake and the boats. The staff are...

Hotel was nice and clean, room was spacious and outdoor patio was so nice. Debbie at check in was super nice very informative and such a great smile to see when we first checked in. Debbie was an asset to the hotel and makes you feel right at home. Would stay here again. Pools are also nice.
