This place was like a private home with lakefront amenities. Each room opened onto spacious lawn with picnic tables and grills. Beyond that, a hiking path led to downtown Bayfield--a short walk away. Microwave, refrigerator, wifi---all the ingredients for an economical family stay. Enthusiastic and helpful staff.

We have stayed at several different accommodations in Bayfield but after staying at Seagull Bay Motel once, it is the only place we go back to. Here are the reasons: -the price is excellent for its location; while not right in town, it is a quick and easy walk down the Brownstone Path to town. -Location. I don't want to... More

We have stayed here many times over the years and just returned from a great weekend in Bayfield. Seagull Bay is our motel of choice without a doubt. Over the last few years we have stayed at other establishments due to last-minute booking on our part and no rooms available at Seagull Bay. This is the cleanest, tidiest place around.... More

This is a bare bones kind of place. It's old and it shows it. Room quite small. No A/C. Warned not to turn overhead fan on top speed on an absolutely sweltering night. We did anyway just to move the stale air around. Bathroom is very small but has been nicely updated. But no hair dryer. One little hard cake... More

This is a simple straight forward motel with just a few twists every travelers wants but does not get at other motels. Owners: The know everything about the area and will share it with you and do anything for you. The only motel/hotel that every customer gets a personal escort to your room even if it is 1 door down... More

We stay here every year for the Applefest. It is a wonderful and clean place to stay, (kinda like home). The owners are great people and the view overlooking Lake Superior is awesome. There is a nice trail below( used to be a railroad) that goes into town ( 5 minute walk) or the other way for beautiful views. The... More

We arrived at the motel in the afternoon, and were so surprised that the motel staff take you to your room and show you around. They told us that the town is safe, and they make you feel like family. There is a small fridge and microwave in the room, and a deck with a table and two chairs outside.... More

Nice place to stay. Clean, very friendly staff. Free wifi and all the amenities you need. Beautiful views nice patio. Could use a little update but all in all great place to stay for the money. Shot distance to town and a convenient walking path.

..but hard to get rooms, because of such a high return rate!! I can see why, it's a no frills option in a high frills town. There is no other motel in town that can meet the price. Clean, friendly staff, if there's a problem, they handle it immediately, and the view is awesome.
