We stayed at the Ship's Quarters, had a great steak dinner at the Bayfield in restaurant, the staff could not have been nicer both at the front desk and in the restaurant. If you go to Bayfield you have to check out the deck at the Bayfield Inn restaurant! What a view!

We stayed here one night while going to Big Top Chautauqua. It is newly remodeled. We had a very fresh, lake view room. Nothing special... but it did have a beautiful view of Memorial Park and the lake. The location is a great benefit as you can walk everywhere. Ample free parking is available.

Visited the town of Bayfield, Wisconsin, and stayed at the Bayfield Inn. Located next to the town's memorial park on the banks of Lake Superior, with the harbor directly in front of the facility. The upper deck and outside bar had a beautiful view of Lake Superior and the large off shore, Madeline Island. The frequent car and passenger ferries...

We stayed here for 5 nights, it was beautiful. We staying at the Inn, our room was on the 2nd floor facing the lake. The room was very roomy and comfortable and quiet. The view was outstanding.

Stayed at the Bayfield Inn for two nights. I went in thinking that as this is not a large hotel chain, that the Inn would be outdated and such. Much to my surprise, the Inn was beautifully updated. The room overlooked the lake so that was great too. Parking is free and they do have spaces for all the guests....

Condo #5 was perfect for two friends to meet again after years; two bedrooms, two baths, full kitchen, living area with patio overlooking Lake Superior. Comfy beds, clean. No flatscreen TV in living room; was not the best viewing during the Olympic games. Close to everything; walked to beach, restaurants, shopping, and ferry to Madeline Island. Off street parking. Will...

We stayed in March which is the off season, so it was very quiet. The restaurant wasn't open for us when we arrived later in the evening, and most restaurants were also closed. The manager was very kind and helpful, and the rooms were very clean and pretty. It seemed a little pricey for a basic room, but we had...

The Bayfield Inn was a nice place for us to stay for our Apostle Island excursion. The property/rooms were as we expected. Clean and comfortable with nice amenities. The staff were friendly. The restaurant on the property was excellent. I had an excellent steak dinner and my wife had an excellent seafood dinner. A place my family would definitely return.

The Bayfield Inn is THE hotel in Bayfield. They not only rent rooms but condos and homes. We travel to Bayfield four times per year and we always stay at the Ada O'day Condos. Excellent hotel with excellent service!

We stayed in a room downstairs in the Garden House. Though there is no real window, the room is more than adequate. Very spacious bathroom, great towels and linens and a very comfy bed! We actually really loved the private entrance, easy in and out. Great A.C. I would make two suggestions: put a light on the exterior stairs. Very...
