We had a 3BR house right on the lake. Lovely deck, sunroom, and a sauna, which we didn't use. Only one bathroom. This is nothing luxurious, but a 3BR house on the lake for 3 people for $115 is a fantastic deal in Bayfield. No AC, but the windows open.

Staff very friendly and accommodating. I'd stay here again. They didn't double their prices for AppleFest as some places do when there's an event in town, a major plus for them!

All previous reviews of the Seagull Bay Motel are pretty accurate. No AC. Thin towels. When the blinds are closed and windows open, cool air can't come in which makes for a warm night. There is a box fan and that helps. But Bayfield rarely has too many warm nights-even in summer. We just hit an unusually warm September 6-8. Nothing fancy. Fabric on chairs stained. Check-out early at 10a.m. Kind of a minimalist experience. But....While dated (and needing refreshing) the room was clean and everything we needed. Comfortable bed. Nice TV with a good channel selection. Functioning bathroom with hot water. Small fridge, microwave and coffee maker with all the free coffee you want plus more in the office. Exceptionally friendly,helpful owners. And the star of the show---the VIEW. Right on Lake Superior!!! Worth every penny. Plus the path into town has you there in minutes without doing the hills. Two years ago we stayed in an old house which was part of one of Bayfield's main hotels, paid 3 times as much and had no view of the water or the ammenities. So what if Seagul is not the Ritz--we used our money saved for a fantastis dinner at Wild Rice and went sailing for an afternoon. Wonderful memories!

Room Tip: Unit 2 gives you a private deck.

The view & location were great but there was no air conditioning. There is also no ventilation when the blinds are closed and you do need to close the blinds for privacy because the rooms had connecting balconies. So if the temperature is over 70 the rooms are stuffy. Very cramped bathroom.

My husband and I have stayed at the Seagull Inn many times over the past twenty years, and always love being there. The owners, the view, the non-smoking policy, and the cleanliness of the rooms brings us back every time. Even in the dead of winter it is pleasant there. Simple and comfortable is the key. Only thing I wish was that dogs were not permitted. I am not a dog lover, and don't enjoy the thought of an animal having been in the same room with their dander and other things. Maybe they only have a few select rooms available for dogs, but not sure. In any case, it hasn't stopped me from returning.

My husband and I spent 3 nights at Seagull Bay Motel this summer. Absolutely loved the view - you are right on Lake Superior and all of the rooms do have a view. I felt the room was nice and clean. We were a little surprised that there was no AC in the room, but I'm sure Bayfield normally doesn't get too warm in the summer, and there is a good breeze coming off the lake to help you sleep well at night. There is also no continental breakfast, but we just planned to keep breakfast foods with us - there is a fridge and micro that help you save money by eating in every once in awhile. The price is the best in town (we pd $75/night + tax) - after checking out a few other places to stay in town, no one else came close to this price. The motel is just a few minutes walk into town - there is a nice trail along the lake that takes you into Bayfield. We spent a couple nights just walking into town for dinner and drinks. We would definitely choose to stay here again!
