This hotel is perfectly located by the harbor. The staff was so nice and helpful. Everyone was friendly and professional. The Jacuzzi room was awesome! Very nicely decorated. Really comfortable beds and pillows. I would highly recommend this place!

The staff was very friendly, the suites were lovely, the food was great! I think it is the best place to stay in Bayfield! I would recommend the Jacuzzi Suite #2! A+ My stay at the Bayfield Inn exceeded my expectations!

We have been enjoying Bayfield for 50 years or so. As our family grew and then left the nest, we have stayed at various places. The Bayfield Inn was our first destination for food and lodging many years ago. We returned this February and were very pleasantly surprised by the updates and renovations. Customer service was wonderful, both at the...

Our whitefish dinner was very good. We enjoyed our table near the window overlooking the harbor. Wait staff were attentive. The dining area was attractive right off the lobby. There are many fine restaurants in the area and you will not be disappointed.

This jewel is a great weekend get-away during the off season. The rooms are clean, the food is great and the staff are wonderful. You won't have any crowds to fight between November and April!! It was quiet and peaceful with a lovely view of Lake Superior. We will go back as often as we can.

Went to Bayfield, WI on the shores of beautiful Lake Superior September 26 for 3 nights. Stayed across the street from The Bayfield Inn at one of their properties, The Isaac Wing. Phoenix Suite. Very fine accommodation. The Inn was filled by a tour group. Carol at the front desk handled our situation well and we appreciated that. Must take...

4 nights here - definitely met my expectations. You pay more for a room with a lake view - but it is worth it. Really pretty, especially in the fall. The BED is SO AMAZING. Super comfortable. Slept so well. Bathrooms could use more lighting though, almost weirdly dark Very good internet

All in all a good Inn in Bayfield the night before we hit the ferry to Madeline Island. Given that this was late in the season, the price was a wee bit high and especially as I was not given a waterside room but one looking over the parking lot. I though the non-waterside rooms should be less expensive than...

Can't beat the location. Get a room with water view, it's beautiful. We loved Bayfield and the people there. The hotel staff was great,very polite and accommodating. Loved the memorial park! They own several properties in the vicinity and they all look beautiful. All in all we had a wonderful time there in Bayfield. Would definitely recommend the Bayfield Inn.

The room was okay. Nothing to write home about, but not terrible. Had some minor issues, but that's probably because it's on the cheaper end of their lodging. Pros: Price, everything is walking distance. It was clean and everything worked. The staff was very friendly. Cons: Some spiders on the outside of our door (I was with two women who...
