Kristin was extremely hospitable. We arrived early and were able to store our bags while we explored the area. She went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable. Let's of family-friendly amenities (beach toys, chairs, and towels) made it easy to cross the street and spend time on the beach. 10/10 recommend

All staff were very friendly and helpful. Building is a little dated but location can’t be beat. We really enjoyed our stay!

I love Bay Shores because of the location to the beach and bars. There is beach chairs, towels, boogie boards and sand toys free for guest use. Roof top deck has gorgeous views. It is a nice, clean, quiet, safe place to stay.

It has a BnB and hotel vibe. Your room is sweet and charming with each room is original. Then you go downstairs and it is more like a home. Built in bookshelves, great little kitchen, served hot cookies, always great fresh fruit flavored water. The staff is amazing! I couldn't have had met better people. We forgot a few things - toothpaste, deodorant - they GAVE them to us for free. They adjusted our schedule so that we could stay the full stay, gave us great coupons for free drinks. Gave us great advice. I will 100% come back.

I feel like your review captured exactly what Bay Shores is all about! I'm so happy to hear that you got such exceptional service while you were with us- we always try to treat our guests like family (including toothpaste and deodorant!) Thank you for the 5/5 rating- we look forward to welcoming you back for another stay.

The whole staff were so welcoming that you felt like part of the family—seriously!!! They suggested activities and places to eat and would jump on the computer to look up anything for you. They serve FRESH cookies every afternoon and have breakfast sandwiches, muffins, cereals, fruit, coffee and hot cocoa for you to get yourself for breakfasts or snack. They have beach towels etc that you can use. Oh yea—the rooftop patio is really nice with great views—we went every morning to eat breakfasts then evening for beautiful sunset! We’ll definitely stay there again!!!

I loved this place. It is a throwback to earlier times when local Mom and Pop hotels existed. I would absolutely stay at Bay Shores again.

Great location!

You can't beat the location. The hotel is a little rough around the edges but the staff and the location more than make up for it.
