Great place to stay in Bayfield! Very reasonable rate, friendly and helpful owners, very clean and neat, both inside and outside. Trail right below motel perfect for walking into town! Would definitely plan to stay here again!

Normally, I prefer to stay in a branded motel/hotel. Hard to do in Bayfield because their are no branded motels. So, we stayed at the Seagull Bay Motel overlooking Lake Superior. Our week long stay was so wonderful that I now have to rethink the benefits of a locally owned facility. The benefits started the last time we were in... More

The Seagull Bay Motel is a small family-operated motel right on Lake Superior. Super-friendly and knowledgeable owners/employees. Beautiful views and access to a very nice walking/biking trail. Going one direction you are a 10 minute walk from downtown Bayfield and the harbor and the opposite direction is 1.5 miles of shaded/wooded beautiful trail. Really comfortable mattresses, free Wi-Fi, and lots... More

Only spent one night here on a 9 day trip round Wisconsin, but wish I could have stayed longer. Great value accommodation with a superb view over the lake. Just sitting on the balcony with a beer watching the stars was a fantastic experience.

I walked in on a Sunday afternoon in July looking for a room, especially one with a lake view and was told that they were full but he did have a room available on an adjacent property which faced the road (Hwy 13). Initially disappointed I knew I couldn't pay the prices for the other local establishments so I said... More

We spent 3 night here. The room was clean but was not made up each day. The only thing they did was put in clean towels. We had a problem with water on the floor the first and second mornings. Owner did not seem too concerned, but it was dry the third day. The price was Good

We stayed at the Seagull Bay Motel in July for four days. My husband and I and our 10 year old daughter stayed in a room with one queen bed and a daybed. Our room was in the building with only one floor so no one above or below us. The view was excellent. The room had a small refrigerator,... More

We had a personal tour from one of the owners when we checked in. He was very friendly and helpful. You an easily walk along a trail from... More

The rooms we rented (Guest House & Room 2) were clean and comfy. The huge windows overlooked the patio and gave a nice lake view. This set of rooms was a separate building which included a kitchen in the Guest house. It was perfect for the 4 adult 2 children combination we had. The kitchen was nicely stocked with cooking...

I love this gem of a motel on Lake Superior. We have been coming here annually for years. Simple furnishings and always sparkling clean. Nothing fancy here, but very comfortable and what a view! The grounds are well kept and the staff is friendly and accommodating. Comfortable beds, Wi-Fi, cable tv and in room coffee. Pet friendly and all non-smoking.... More
