Great beach

Overall great hotel, “free breakfast” is nothing more than a plain bagel/uncrustable and warm yogurt which was a bit disappointing.

Our first room smelled like smoke so we had to request a new one which the staff was happy to do so and felt quite bad about. Not their fault as the hotel clearly says no smoking but with all the pot shops in the area you know its happening anyway. Otherwise great location on the water, good enough pool and hot tub and the food at the attached diner was quite good!

Went to check in, they at first didn't have a reservation, then "found it", for tomorrow. Went and stayed at a Comfort Inn (nice stay), went back the next day and got the same story, it was for "tomorrow". I called them on it and made a scene in the crowded lobby. "They found a room". Turns out if you make a reservation with a service instead of directly with them, they "lose" things.

The property was located a few miles east of downtown, so you don't get all the traffic of the downtown area. The hotel itself was right on the water, had a nice little beach with chairs, and 100 ft, you're back in the hotel. The hotel also had a nice little lounge , if you looking to stay local and get a drink or bite to eat. There are a few restaurants that are in walking distance. The hotel was kept in nice condition, and the desk staff was very pleasant and accommodating. Trying to make a left out the parking lot can be tricky, depending on the time of day, but other than that, its a great choice to stay at.

Food in bar/eating area was good. Obviously had problems with staffing but was trying to hire more. TV in rooms was a problem at time.

Hreat location. The hotel was right on the main street with quick access to downtown. The lounge had great food that was priced right.

It was a nice location. It was right off the water and had a lovey view. Very close to casino and winery's. Room was clean and simple. Very small tv, and bed was okay in terms of comfort. Staff was friendly. Good value place to stay while seeing the sights of Traverse City. I would return.

Our room had a Beautiful view of Grand Traverse bay

Easy access... easy check in...room very clean....

Well I bought over $100 worth of food and had room service it was cold by time it it to my room. I tipped the guy $17. I just couldn’t believe I couldn’t eat my steak or lobster tail or the lobster bisque soup. I went down and talk to an amazing woman who is going to make it all right with me tomorrow morning. My room on the other hand was gross they didn’t even clean inside the fridge and there was a ton of hair in my bathtub. I went to take a shower around Midnight and there was NO HOT WATER!!!! I’m about to blow a gasket!!!!!!

Beautiful view but everything else was less than par

The mechanical rooms need to be updated they are very noisy and if you happen to have a room close to one of those it sounds like a jet plane is taking off in the room next-door. Having said that we were offered another room and that took care of the problem

We have stayed with Parkshore for the last 10 years whenever in the Traverse City Area. Always clean and the staff are very polite and helpful.

I loved the location right off the water. The staff was friendly.I even liked the breakfast snack. The front desk staff gave us information on where to get hot breakfast. The hotel is dated. It was clean mostly. The towels were clean but pink and beige.

Beautiful view! The hotel is located in a prime location, only a few minutes from downtown. The staff is extremely welcoming especially Dee. Would highly recommend park shore!
