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...

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...

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...

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....

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.

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...

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...
