As other reviewers have said, this is an older motel, but is very well-kept. Rates are very reasonable and the view is priceless! I suggest bringing your own shampoo and hair dryer because neither were provided. Also, there was no A/C. This could have been a problem if the weather had been very hot and humid. Excellent ventilation through large... More

The Seagull Bay is a quaint, older motel which has been beautifully preserved. The furnishings in the room were perfect and the view from the balcony is what you would expect from a hotel costing twice as much. We enjoyed sharing a bottle of wine on that balcony after a hard day of hiking...Priceless. Mike the owner was very friendly... More

I know Mike said he doesn't have time to read the reviews as he's always busy working, but just in case he does, Yes, It's true, the owner of this place knows, supports and is ready and willing to help with all things Bayfield. Initially we were in town at a much higher price hotel in town though they couldn't... More

This is an older, but well maintained motel operated by the very friendly owners. Would stay again when in the Bayfield area. Probably the best value in the area. A great base for exploring Bayfield and the Apostle Islands.

The great view of Lake Superior is only part of the charm of this motel. The owner and employees are the most friendly and helpful of any where we have stayed. The rooms are clean and though not large have nice features. I liked the roll f paper towels that was provided. We would never consider staying any where else... More

The Seagull Bay motel is a moderately priced, modest hotel. I am giving it 4 stars relative to the other budget hotels in the area. The buildings and rooms are a little dated, but they do have modern amenities like a small flat screen screen TV, microwave, fridge, coffee pot and free wifi. No A/C but the cool lake breeze... More

Friends had recommended the Seagull Bay Motel to us and they were spot-on. It is just as lovely as it is advertised. Sitting out on our deck the Lake air was fresh and seemed full of extra oxygen! The facilities were extra neat and clean and the staff were friendly, funny and helpful. Beds extra comfy. The shuttle bus stopped... More

Beautiful spot, friendly service. My family comes up here every year. One thing though, some people may find Bayfield boring. There isn't much to do there for some people. I recommend bringing a deck of cards to pass time.

This is a GREAT place for people with little kids. The lawn is perfect for running around. On the other hand, as a solo traveler, it was NOT a pleasant experience. When I made the reservation, I was told by the owner that I had a choice between a "shared deck" or a "private balcony". I was SPECIFICALLY looking for... More

We have stayed here at least 5 times. The beds are very comfortable, has microwave & mini fridge. We take wine with us and have a drink on the deck. We love that we can leave the car parked and walk into town on the path along the lake. It is usually peaceful & relaxing.
