Seagull Bay Motel is a nice, clean and reasonably priced motel located right on the Brownstone Trail, a short walk into town. Our room had a beautiful view of Lake Superior and the beds were comfy. The owners are very nice folks who are the sponsors of the shuttle bus to the Big Top Chatauqua, which stops at the motel...

We spent our 47th anniversary weekend in Bayfield and stayed at the Seagull Bay Motel. We selected this lodging based on location and price and we were not disappointed. Our room was at their second location, Bay West, and everything was completely acceptable given that we were paying $90 per night, a very affordable price for this destination. Our room...

We are finishing our 4th stay here over the past 20 years. If you like a fancy place to stay don't consider this place...the facilities are simple, with small rooms and very plain furnishings. Also, most of the rooms with the best views do not have AC so take that into account. All that said, we really like this place....

As others have said this place is a good old motel with very special service. The long time owners make sure you are comfortable and know where everything is-- from the hiking path in front of the hotel going to town-- to the extra coffee in the lobby if needed in the morning. Plan to spend a little time sitting...

We have been here several times through the years and in all that time I think the price has gone up $10 at most. To get an $80 room is a great value and with a fantastic Lake Superior view to boot. The owners are great as is the property tucked below the street and with a trail along Lake...

This motel was so homey and quaint. We stayed in a house that had been converted thoughtfully into motel rooms. The view was exceptional, the room was large and comfortable and very clean and very private and quiet. This was not a chain where all rooms look alike so you are dealing with the owner who lives on the premises....

When we can, we stay at the Seagull Bay Motel because it is so inexpensive. On our most recent visit, we stayed here because we had tickets to a BIg Top Chautauqua show and wanted to take their shuttle. We found out later that the owners of the Seagull sponsor that shuttle. We really appreciate that! We had a lower...

Mike and Jeannie are the owners of Seagull Bay Motel. How do I know that? Because they are so friendly and helpful that we just wanted to spend time talking with them. This is a classic small-town motel that is well maintained, scrupulously clean, reasonably priced and perfectly located. We have stayed lots of places in Bayfield, but this is...

We stayed here for our anniversary and the view from our room on the 2nd level was breath taking. The owners are very kind and knowledgeable of the area. It is a short walk on a scenic path to town. We took the ferry to the island. We will definitely stay here again.

My husband and I were only looking for a queen bed with a kitchenette. They were booked so we took the Walk Out West for only $110 per night. This is separate from main building, but no inconvenience in any way. We had three bedrooms (ours a full size bed), full size kitchen a living area with chair, two full...
