Thought it seemed really cheap - but we checked it out and you do get what you pay for. Horrible, smelly, moldy rooms. After switching to different rooms twice we got our money back - we had booked through Hotels.com - who helped us.
Manager said they were going to remodel - they should be CLOSED until then and I still would NEVER go back.

My husband and I checked in for our anniversary two days ago. The reviews scared me but we already booked and it's non-refundable. We figured if it was horrible we would go elsewhere. We thought they were closed since we were the only ones there. We expected the worst but our check-in went smoothly, the room was basic but clean with a king bed and jacuzzi, microwave,tv,and fridge/freezer. We ended up with an almost empty motel the whole time- which gave us the pool to ourselves ( could have been skimmed but was acceptable) and we could go outside in our pajamas at night to watch the deer without the crowds. They cleaned the room the next day and replaced the sheets towels and shampoos and were neat and tidy. They don't Bother you. The reviews are probably hurting their business but for our trip- we loved all the privacy! I have stayed in motels that weren't even half as nice but were big names and we paid double. We would definitely go back.

Bay Shore Inn was absolutely disgraceful! First off, the owners spoke very broken English and barely understood anything we said. The pool was dirty and cloudy, we could not even see the bottom. There were bugs and a huge spider and when we asked the management to remove the spider, they said no, but then once asked again, he did. It was like pulling teeth, that's for sure! Rooms smelt awful, ours smelt of stale cigarrettes and our parents' room smelt like burnt tomato soup and very musty. It was beyond tacky and the mirror had stickers all over it. The carpets and chairs were stained along with holes in the upholstery including the bedding. I would definitely not walk on the floor or anywhere in the room without socks or shoes on. Secondly, the bathroom was relatively clean, faucet was cheap and handle came off. The showers are made for little people. Management was not very pleasant and said nothing to us the whole time we were there. Our parents' room had been complained about prior to us arriving, but they gave the people who complained about it a brand new room while they were stuck in the disgusting room. While we were there, we talked to the couple who complained about our parents' room and they said the health department was there the day before and were complaining about their inn, but they were having a very hard time communicating with the management, so I don't think they made a very large impact, sadly.

Went to visit Put n Bay, most of hotels on islands were booked for the weekend I wanted. Went up for first time with my husband and another couple, so we had no idea what to expect. I'm not picky at all, but the Bayshore inn was dirty, and old. Couldn't use pool the whole time because of pump issues . We had adjoining rooms , and first few hours the bathroom flooded and had to get other rooms!! Had to ask for coffee maker , and it was so dirty couldn't use it! We loved Port Clinton, Put n Bay, and Kellys Island!! Next time we will pay the extra for a better hotel on the water!!

The Staff was very pleasent and helpful. Our room was neat and clean, As was the shower area. The pool was small but nice. The stay there was a wonderful experince. If you're looking for a five star this hotel is not it. But if you are looking for a place to get a good nights sleep. and a pool that you can just sit back in and relax. Or maybe a staff that makes you feel welcome. For a price that won;t break you. THIS IS IT!

Room Tip: Be polite, these people are here to help you.
