We were super excited to stay here, never have before and my father has and he told us we would love it. We stayed on the second floor. I did love the small stairs you can take instead of the elevator and the touch entry. Once we got to our room, I checked out the cleanliness because during COVID that’s important to me. There were many stray hairs on the bathroom counter and shower, which is disgusting and made me second guess how clean the room actually was to the naked eye. The plumbing was awful. The shower took AT LEAST 5 minutes to heat up. The toilet kept clogging without any reason for it to be. The parking lot was miserable, some lines in it are barely visible so almost everyone was taking up two spaces, during one night coming back from dinner we almost couldn’t find a spot. The pool was crowded Fri-Sun which was super annoying. And there were kids with no parents in sight running up and down stairs from 5pm-12am, so we could not rest or sleep. Not a great view from the room. Beds were comfortable & TV was great. We did love the mini fridge and two sink options. The grab and go breakfast was great as well! Overall I’d rate it a 5/10 for all the trouble we ran into. MIGHT stay here again in the future but would more than likely just get an Air BnB next time.

Overall I would say the best score I could give the Bayshore is average. On the plus side there was plenty of free parking, great location and everything in the room was clean and not broken. On the minus side the room was very dated (including a ten foot section of floor to ceiling mirrors! The decore was very old including the old whirlpool tub in the center of the room. Yuck! The shower is probably the smallest I have ever seen in a hotel room. There was an adequate view of the water from the room but only cheap hard plastic chairs to sit on.
