I am incredibly disappointed with the customer service at this hotel. I checked in on a Thursday, and was informed that I was booked for four rooms instead of the three we needed. I had booked two large suites in January, and then called back in April to add a third room. In that same conversation in April, I confirmed...

We're regulars, and have never been disappointed by the BayShore. Spotless QUIET rooms, the absolute best view on all of South Bass, great swimming pools, and a Tiki Bar that cannot be beat. This year they even have new TVs, but with the awesome swimming pools and the 5-minute walk to the nightlife and shopping, aside from checking on the...

Had dinner at the Waterfront Restaurant with group of ten. Service was excellent, as was the food. They brought together enough tables for us to sit together and service was both timely and very friendly.

Insider's Hint: walk thru the double doors past the reception desk, out the door toward the lake and off to your right you will see the Tilki Hut, which is the best bar on the Island. You may sit at the bar or at one of the many tables The views are incredible, it is never too crowded, the patrons...

Rooms clean and large. Two great pools....and the great tiki bar. Rooms on second and third floor have large screened balconies. The on site restaurant has great food. Staff friendly and helpful. Nothing bad to say about this hotel. Love it!

We stayed one night at the BayShore Resort and had a very nice time. Yes, we checked in before the room was ready. But, as others have indicated, we were able to put our carry on luggage in a open room off the lobby. We rented a golf cart for the day, knowing it needed to be returned by 10...

My husband and I took our three children to Put-in-Bay at the Bayshore for Fourth of July and stayed one night. We were traveling with two other families, both also had children. We were please that we were able to place our luggage in a room when our rooms were not ready for check-in. We had the ability to use...

The real question here is "How does this property compare to other hotels on the island/" For all I know, this may be the BEST the island has to offer, and therefore should get a 5 star. On the mainland, this would get a 3 star. We usually stay at bed and breakfasts while at Put-In-Bay, but during the July...

After touring the island we were so glad we stayed at this resort. Other hotels were too loud and full of drunk young people. This resort had all the amenities we wanted, beautiful views and a wonderful relaxing atmosphere.

Not only is this hotel overpriced and nothing special, the customer service is THE WORST. I understand the need to control crazy kids wanting to have wild parties in their rooms, but not everyone needs to be treated like a kid. My husband and I frequent PIB and recently booked a room here for a Sunday night. We had been...
