Wonderful place to get away

The hotel and beach were wonderful. The staff and proprietors were fabulous! It was a laid back fun atmosphere that I totally enjoyed! The weather and all the fun things to do on the area made it a perfect get away.

nice room

Everything was very nice. Great location, view of beach, comfortable room and access to the bar and restaurant. I just wish the pool would have been available. It was closed and needing a part.

stay here

The Park Shore is a great place to stay after a day at the dunes. The front desk staff was friendly and efficient. The room overlooked East Traverse Bay. Had dinner in the hotel restaurant, prime rib that melted in my mouth. Will definitely stay here on my next trip to Traverse City and the surrounding area!
