This was our second visit to Bayfield, we'e stayed at the Seagull Bay both times. Nice people, comfy room, wonderful view. It's a nice walk 10-minute to town on the Brownstone Trail along the lakeshore. Not a super deluxe resort, just a very nice family motel.

Managers are awesome, and place is quiet. Right on the water and blocks from everything. No rooms have a bad view. The path at night is not lit. Wish it was... Bring a flashlight...just beautiful. Highly suggest the stay there.

Comfortable beds, clean. Older furniture but again clean. Very friendly owners and helpful. They can be reached all hours of the day and night if needed. A short nature walk to town and to the coffee shop. The view is breath taking. Rates are reasonable.

This was an older motel but very nicely kept up and extremely clean. The people that run it are very pleasant and accommodating. The motel was on a hill overlooking Lake Superior with beautiful views, a hiking trail was located just a very short distance down towards the lake.

We were in the area to enjoy the changing of the leaves and had made a reservation at Seagull Bay Motel. The manager was on-site when we arrived and was very friendly and helpful. The walls are very thin between the rooms though. We were watching tv, and the volume was not very loud, and at 10 p.m. the lady... More

The people are super and are very accommodating. Yes it is older (mid 1940's) and dated but they have kept up pretty well with repairs etc. Grass kept up nicely, beauttiful flowers. The bathrooms are very tiny, the beds quite comfortable, It is clean. I was a bit disappointed that so many people were outside and on the decks conversing,... More

We stayed one night on our "up north" road trip on the recommendation of family who has stayed here in the past. We stayed on the lower level and could walk right out the door and see beautiful Lake Superior. Our room was ready when we arrived earlier than expected, so we enjoyed a late lunch on the picnic table... More

Just recently returned from another great trip to Bayfield. Stay at the Seagull Bay every time. Great location, great views, pet friendly. Mike the manager is a wonderful manager that will cater to whatever is needed. Overall a great experience. Have been there many times. We go there because of the pet friendly atmosphere. Highly recommended!

Chose a room with a fantastic view. As other reviewers have noted the motel is a little tired but it does offer exceptional value for money. Mike, Jeanne and the team run a very tight ship, things are well organised and all is provided if you just ask. Otherwise you are left on your own. Both bed and shower were... More

We stayed here in September. Our room had a great view, was clean, wifi signal was good, and the staff was very friendly. We would definitely stay here again. The motel is located in an ideal location if you want to be close to the shops and restaurants (walking distance), but still want to feel like you are secluded. The... More
