My husband bought a groupon for a trip we were planning on taking and boy was that ever a great deal!!! This is a nice little place that is nothing fancy but very warm and welcoming. It served us just right for the one night we did stay here. The bartender at the pool was very friendly. We got a really great deal that included a bar credit and use of a golf cart for the night. I would have stayed at this hotel even without the two extras.

Just completed our annual trip to Put In Bay...We have stayed here 9 years running and plan on going back for a 10th year. This IS THE PLACE TO STAY AT PUT IN BAY for the 30 plus crowd and even families. Rooms are awesome and clean, view is spectacular, and its like being at an All-Inclusive resort! Tiki Bar with Andrea and Caroline is the best on the island, and the prices are right in line with any other place you would stay at PIB...Only this place is 10x nicer. We love it and the addition of the restaurant a few years ago makes this place the best place to stay on PIB! Its a 5 minute walk downtown, you can rent golf carts, food is good, drinks are great and the place is like being at a first class resort. If you want the party loud music, this isn't your place. But if you want to have adult fun, relax, and just have a great time, the Bayshore is the best place on the Island. We've stayed at other places, and wont stay anywhere else on the Island ever again. Bayshore is the best!

Room Tip: Second and third floor have screened in porches, and you don't need to bring your car over to th...

Upon arriving at Bay Lodging for our weekend at Put-In-Bay we were told our reservation was cancelled but they would take us to their sister hotel, Put-In-Bay Resort where there was a room for us. Upon arriving there, we were told by LeAnne that they did not have an opening and there was nothing she could do for us. Neither hotel was helpful. We got in at BayShore (we were extremely lucky). Margaret could not have been nicer the entire weekend. It is a little off the beat and path but you can still walk to downtown. Our room was so nice and quite at night. The pool overlooks the lake. The Waterfront Restaurant is right there. We could not have had a better weekend and feel we were at the best hotel on the island.

Second year in a row we have stayed at Bay Shore. I think it's the best location of all hotels - on the lake, but also walking distance to downtown. Service was as good as last time (picky people complain about the service, but they're packed out every summer, they have a lot going on, deal with it). Made requests for the room, but they have hard boundaries about not selecting certain rooms, and refrigerators are only available in suits.

Rooms were clean, nice bathrooms (plenty of space with a glass enclosed shower), and every room has a balcony or patio facing the lake (and Perry's Monument). We have higher than average expectations for room cleanliness, and were for the most part satisfied with our room.

There are two pools and a large hot tub that sit out by the lake, along with a bar. Bar has daily specials (it was a different $4 special every day and beer was cheap compared to other places). Great setting, ideal for relaxing, drinking, and swimming.

Overall the Bay Shore is a great selection for a stay at Put-in-Bay. I don't think there's a better hotel on the island. Nothing in particular was annoying enough that would cause me not to return. They're pretty hard with certain rules about outside alcohol, rooms, and a few other ones, but they are a great place.

Room Tip: Only the suites have refrigerators. We requested one and that's what we were told.

Let me start off by saying we have been going to the Bayshore for eight years now. The location cannot be beat. Its nice that they have a bar there but that can get expensive. What was up this year was unexpected. Why wasn't the grass cut? What was up with the pools not being heated? Not up to the standards of years in the past. We have always had a great time at the place but we stayed at another place on Kelleys Island that now sets the standard for nice hotels on lake erie. We stayed on the ground floor w a nice patio. There were dead bugs, mulch debris all over the place. Sadly this has become just another PIB Hotel and for the money there are nicer and less expensive places to go and have a good time. Bar staff is excellent...

We stay here every year and it is by far the best hotel on the island. That being said, I wish that we would have kayaks this year and flat screen tv with satellite . This year they upgraded wifi but we found it to be slow and not working. Highly recommend but hoping they upgrade next year.

Stayed: July 2014

Our annual anniversary (this is our 30th anniversary, the majority have been at the resort) trip to South Bass Island and Put-In-Bay would not be complete without staying at the BayShore Resort. The staff are some of the nicest people around. The rooms are very comfortable. This time we stayed on the south end of the resort, top floor. The view was awesome!!!

Room Tip: If you want quick access to the lakeside tiki bar, stay on the first floor. The upper floor is the...
