We had a wonderful stay at Bayshore Resort during our first visit to Put-in-Bay! I stayed at this hotel with one of my best female friends for a girls' trip to the island. Our first impressions of the hotel were great as the staff was really friendly and helpful as we had never been to the island before. The hotel...

I booked a room for 2 nights. They told me the only room they had available was a "2-bedroom suite with kitchen." When we checked in, we found it was one large room with a half-wall between the beds. I don't consider this 2 bedrooms! No privacy. They we wanted to check out and they wouldn't refund one night. It's...

Although not a super high end room the bayshore offers a great location and nice atmosphere. The rooms are clean and large, even if a bit dated. The cost.. Well everything on the island cost more! It's close enough ( 1/2 mile or so) the the main strip that it's a nice walk but far enough that you done have...

Although this hotel does not have everything I have grown to expect from the big chain hotels, it has the best location on the island. It is quiet, the pools are wonderful, a great bar and restaurant. The rooms are a little out dated but we had a great Queen Suite room with 2 beds and a pull out couch....

If you're 20-something and looking to drink til you puke ~ in a pool full of fellow idiots ~ who NEVER step out of the pool to use a restroom despite posing in the 'water' for 8 hours....don't stay here. If you want all of the party and fun of The Bay and THEN want to stay at a wonderful...

This is our second time back this year!! I read the last review before I posted this and it's kinda funny cause if you paid attention when they take your reservation they tell you that you can't bring alcohol in as well as when you get the letter in the mail. Any how, we adore his hotel. The security guards...

BEWARE!!! We just checked in. WOW what a humiliation!!! After we paid in full the "security" team appeared and told us their "policy" to open our cooler for them to "search for alcohol or be evicted from the premise!( We are on our 10th anniversary and had a bottle of champagne and 24 beers for 2 days.We are 47 years...

We have been going to Put-in-Bay for 10 years & usually stay at the Islander Inn, but we NEVER had a good night sleep there (to rowdy) so we decided to try a different location. Bay Shore was a last minute idea & they had one room left two hours before we arrived. Lower patio, jacuzzi, & king size bed...

This was our 4 year in a row that we have celebrated our anniversary at the BayShore Resort.

The hotel is clean and quiet because we stay Sunday night through Wednesday. The Tiki Bar is...

We choose this hotel due to the fact that they do not allow you to bring alcohol onto their property because they hold their own liquor license and felt that it would keep all the partiers out. It was very quiet and nice! They had their own bar (Tiki Bar) open in the early afternoon so you could get a...
