    Historical Traveler Reviews Parkshore Resort Traverse City

    Love the Parkshore!


    My fiance took me to this hotel the weekend he proposed. We had a king size suite. We had an awesome stay, with friendly service. It's just beautiful there, you can't go wrong. We will definitly go back again!

    Fantastico Parkshore!


    Il mio fidanzato mi ha portata in quest'hotel il weekend in cui ha deciso di chiedermi di sposarlo. Avevamo una suite con letto matrimoniale a due piazze. stata un'esperienza favolosa e il personale era molto cordiale. Il posto bellissimo, non vi pentirete di esserci andati. Noi ci torneremo sicuramente!

    Excellent place to stay!!!!!!!


    we have been staying here for a couple year atleast 1 or 2 times a month they treat us like gold all the help treat you like family and the rooms are great.highly recommended!!!!!!! everyone from our company stays here.

    Our Family loved The ParkShore Resort


    For twenty years we've taken our Daughters to TC as a "family getaway", during the Christmas Holiday. The majority of the time we stayed @ The Waterfront, sadly they've sold and will be converting to condos. The ParkShore was strongly recommended to us. We stayed from 12/26 thru 12/30 and couldn't have been more pleased. We had 2 rooms, both were comfortable and clean. They offer more than The Waterfront was able to provide, as far as amenities. The staff was helpful & courteous. I'm unable to mention anything negative about our stay @ The ParkShore Resort, our experience was very positive!

    Great Stay at ParkShore Resort


    We stayed two nights at the ParkShore Resort in Traverse City. When we arrived at check-in time we were told that our room was not ready because of a power outage. When we complained, the front desk personnel upgraded our room and made sure our new room was ready. While the weather was too cool to use the beachfront amenities, it looks like a great place to stay in the summer with a great beach, volleyball net, fire pit, jet skis, and deck. Our room was comfortable and had a terrific view of the bay. The make your own waffles at breakfast were very popular. The staff was friendly and helpful.

    Yes, our beach is a wonderful spot for summer activities such as volleyball and boating. It is hard to beat a fire by the bay in the evening.

    I hope you stay with us again!

    Park Shore is Awesome!


    We often stay in the Traverse City area. The Park Shore hotel, is very elegant and 1st class hotel. Our Jacuzzi room was spectacular. With a great view of the West Bay! The room was very clean and service people were great. We stayed and extra day!

    Highly Recommended


    My family and I spent a week at the Parkshore Resort and we were extremely impressed. It was very clean, service was good, the price was right.

    The free breakfast was exceptional, especially the fresh waffles. One morning I arrived late at breakfast and clean-up had commenced. I asked if there was any more batter for the waffles - which there wasn't. However, instead of brushing me off, they got more to accomodate me. The beach was beautiful, apparently voted best in Traverse City. I agree as I have spent time at most hotels in Traverse City - this hotel is among the best. Not as nice as the Grand Traverse Resort (still my favorite for the area), but much cheaper and still better than most others along the east and west bay. We will definately visit again.

    Incredible property and the best experience for all of my employees


    After staying in many area hotels we ended up here at Parkshore Resort and have made it our company's stadard when working with our local clients. The service is excellent, the property is first rate, and the cost is extremely competitive. I highly recommend this property.

    Reservation Error by Manager


    I reserved a room for June 20 and 21st. When I arrived I was told in no uncertain terms that my reservation was for May 20 and 21st and there were no rooms left at the internet rate of $69.99. They told me that it was my fault for not checking the confirmation. I requested a friday and saturday and yet they booked me for May 20 and 21st, a tuesday and wednesday. The help had not been very pleasant in the past and I will definitely never stay there again.

    Poor Service


    I had a two nights stay at the Parkshore. The second night I was walking around a chair and tore my pant leg on a piece of metal sticking out of the chair. I called the front desk to report it. I was told I would have to talk to the manger who was not available. I tried to talk to her before I checked out, again she was not available. I had to call for three days and leave several messages. Finally I called and the manager answered the phone. She told me she didn't have time to talk to me and there was nothing they would do to cover the cost of my pants. The hotel was decent but the service was poor. I would not recommend the hotel.

    ... and got into the car. Equipped with ham sandwiches, apples and bananas - we had no need to stop, so headed straight to Uncle Roger's and Aunt Carol's. We have had so much fudge and eaten so many pasties that we were happy to be back to eating sandwiches. The autumn colours were definitely brighter compared to last week, but once we crossed the Mackinac Bridge, we noticed that the trees ...

    It was about a 3 hour flight, with a third of that flying over Lake Michigan.

    ... by the "Sugar Shack" - it's a little shed that has a wood burner and a giant pan I guess where the maple sap is heated to make homemade maple syrup. The tree has a hole drilled into it and then a tube called a spile lets the sap drip out and it's collected. I have never been a fan of maple syrup (Jonathan has made me pancakes with maple syrup before), but Aunt Carol gave me a little sample with a spoon and I could ...
