We arrived at 6pm on a Sunday night without reservations. The main Inn was sold out to a group and the dining room was closed for the week for them. We were offered a room in a house across the street and given a price reduction. The room was definitely overpriced for our needs. Though the Inn is on the water, the house is not and our room was facing an apartment parking lot. The room was comfortable and the bed was comfortable. The place was clean but the TV remote did not work and the TV did not operate as a result. The few people we saw from the Inn were friendly.

We stayed midweek early in June and had an excellent experience. Impeccably clean and comfortable room which has been recently remodeled. We stayed in room 203 which had a view of the lake and it was quiet, though tourist season had not started yet. Carol at the front desk was so helpful and welcoming. At the restaurant the food was great at affordable prices and the chef accommodated my dietary needs, and the waitress was cheerful and attentive. The deck on the top of the hotel overlooks the lake and marina and had lovely container gardens. Within walking distance of shops and several good restaurants. I highly recommend tjphis hotel.

We spent quite some time researching accommodations in bayfield. The Bayfield Inn was at the upper end of the price range but seemed the perfect location. We were traveling with friends and were excited about the balcony area overlooking the lake and the lounge for hanging out and catching up.
We paid the premium "in season" price but the deck was closed for "spring renovations ", the lounge was closed, they were painting in the lobby, and sanding walls in the room across from us. He was working with the door open so we could hear sanding. The paint smell was unpleasantly strong. I just feel we paid in-season price and received off-season accommodations.
Our room was clean and comfy, but not really anything special about it.
From reading other reviews, it seems you just need to verify you are getting what they are promising.

Before we decided to visit this northern most part of Wisconsin we were trying to find reviews on this Condo and we did not find many for this particular unit. So I wanted to make sure the next traveler would have a review to help decide if they wanted to visit. After check in at the Hotel (different location), we meandered down the cozy street to find our condo and were pleasantly surprised to see it's great location. We entered our unit #2 and were again happy to see how clean everything was. The unit is prepared with all that you would need and a wonderfully equipped kitchen. We did find out there was no hair dryers, but after a call to the front desk, one was promptly delivered.
The master bedroom has the 3/4 bath and the other 2 bedrooms share the larger bath with a jetted tub. The unit has 3 newer flat screen TV's and the cable service does have HD reception. WiFi worked well throughout the unit as well.
The view is beautiful of the southern shore of Lake Superior and is a short walk to everything you need. After we parked our car, we have yet to need it.
I would highly suggest a visit to this pristine part of the world where your stay, view and contentment will all pleasantly match!

The service was wonderful, very helpful. We stay off site at the condos. They were beautiful, large, clean and newer. The staff allowed us to check in early as we had tickets to ride the boat tour, which helped getting thing settled for a short weekend.

In April I spent a week at The Bayfield Inn.The atmosphere here is welcoming and warm. The entire staff pays attention to every detail and does its best to accommodate any needs; that applies to everyone in management, the bar staff, the dining room and the girls who take care of the rooms. It felt as if the people there, even the ones I just met, were long time friends. My room was located on the lakeside, providing the most gorgeous view of Lake Superior anytime, day or night. The dining room overlooks the lake, also, so there's an unobstructed view of the harbor for breakfast and lunch. The Inn is located right in town within walking distance of everything, which is very convenient. This was my second stay there and not my last. I hope to make another visit in the fall again this year and will definitely stay at the inn.

Room Tip: Choose a lakeside room if you're interested in the view. All those rooms look out over Lake Supe...

My husband and I were there this last weekend (May 16-18, 2014) and WOW...we were so blessed!

From the reservation over the phone, to the check in, to the room, till we checked out...friendly service and great people that work there that we came in counter with! Very clean, light atmosphere, and peaceful area. We understand that it wasn't full tourist season but, it was Great!

We ate at the Portside Restaurant and that was recommended by Bayfield Inn receptionist...Fantastic!!!! For breakfast, we ate there at the Bayfield Inn and I had the Shipwreck that might not be right, but it was scrambled eggs, with cream cheese and bacon...YUM!!!

You, Bayfield Inn helped make our 24th Anniversary a real get away treat!!!

Thank you so Much!! We will return! Highly Recommended and we have and will continue to tell others of your Beautiful place and Friendly staff!
