We have been here several times through the years and in all that time I think the price has gone up $10 at most. To get an $80 room is a great value and with a fantastic Lake Superior view to boot. The owners are great as is the property tucked below the street and with a trail along Lake... More

This motel was so homey and quaint. We stayed in a house that had been converted thoughtfully into motel rooms. The view was exceptional, the room was large and comfortable and very clean and very private and quiet. This was not a chain where all rooms look alike so you are dealing with the owner who lives on the premises.... More

When we can, we stay at the Seagull Bay Motel because it is so inexpensive. On our most recent visit, we stayed here because we had tickets to a BIg Top Chautauqua show and wanted to take their shuttle. We found out later that the owners of the Seagull sponsor that shuttle. We really appreciate that! We had a lower... More

Mike and Jeannie are the owners of Seagull Bay Motel. How do I know that? Because they are so friendly and helpful that we just wanted to spend time talking with them. This is a classic small-town motel that is well maintained, scrupulously clean, reasonably priced and perfectly located. We have stayed lots of places in Bayfield, but this is... More

We stayed here for our anniversary and the view from our room on the 2nd level was breath taking. The owners are very kind and knowledgeable of the area. It is a short walk on a scenic path to town. We took the ferry to the island. We will definitely stay here again.

My husband and I were only looking for a queen bed with a kitchenette. They were booked so we took the Walk Out West for only $110 per night. This is separate from main building, but no inconvenience in any way. We had three bedrooms (ours a full size bed), full size kitchen a living area with chair, two full... More

Owners were very nice and quite helpful. Well maintained grounds. All rooms overlook Lake Superior. Very clean room and comfortable bed. There is no air conditioning, but there was a ceiling fan and a box fan in the room. There is a nice walking path that takes you into Bayfield. An older motel, but very reasonable priced. Would definitely stay... More

This is an older motel, but well maintained. The grounds are lovely and overlook Lake Superior. A walking-bike path is below their gardens. You can sit on the balcony or go down to the garden level where there are benches and tables. We stayed on a weeknight and although the motel was completely booked, it was very quiet at night....

The Seagull looks very ordinary from the highway. Do not be deceived. All the rooms have a magnificent view of Madeline Island & channel. Rooms are a little larger than average & have very comfy beds. A path below the motel leads into town for some very tasty eats! I would highly recommend reservations as a lot of travelers love...
