After arriving in our room the cable TV in the living area had no signal, yet the tv in the bedroom worked fine. After expressing concern and great dissatisfaction to an employee working reception, Jarrett, he personally came over to take a look. Sadly he was unable to fix the problem, but assured me he would get someone in the... More

Stayed only one night, but could stay a week! The view from the room was beautiful as it overlooked many gorgeous flowers and Lake Superior. The rooms were adequate and decorated like I would imagine someone's aunt or grandmother would, but the view was what took the cake for me. No breakfast so would have to go into town for... More

We stayed at the Bayfield Inn for 3 nights, our room was Lakeside Jacuzzi Suite 1. Room was fantastic, very comfortable king size bed, beautiful Jacuzzi to unwind in after a day of hectic sightseeing. Had a very nice television and a gas fireplace, although it was in the mid 80's while we were there and weren't feeling the fireplace,... More

We stayed in this rental condo and it was marvelous! It looked out over Lake Superior and had a wrap around covered porch to enjoy the out of doors! Nicely furnished and clean. We would stay there again!!! One could cook their meals in or grill outside. It has to be super cozy on those winter nights as well!!!

Great location, beautiful setting, excellent service. We were walk-ins to hoping to find a room on a busy weekend and were greeted like royalty. We were given the opportunity to see the two rooms that were available and both were excellent, but when we told them we wanted to stay two nights we were shown another option; a studio in... More

We stayed here while visiting the Apostle Island ice caves during the winter. The location in Bayfield is convenient. The condos are spread out from the actual Bayfield Inn. We had reserved what we thought (was advertised) as a Master bedroom, double twin and a pullout sofa. That was not the case. We arrived late after driving 4 1/2 hours... More

We loved the atmosphere at this hotel. The flat screen TV is wall mounted with a lot of channels. Each room has a refrigerator and single serve Cuisinart coffee maker. I am a decor snob and don't care for most hotel decor, as it can be dated or too ultra-modern... This place is tastefully decorated with classic, but modern touches.... More

We had picked this hotel last minute not knowing where to go or what to expect. Room was small but very clean and staff was very friendly and accommodating. Bayfield is a great town and has lots of great restaurants to visit. I would definitely recommend this hotel to new people wanting to stay there. They also have great breakfasts... More

The best hotel with the best possible location. Trailered my boat and had walking distance from apostle islands marina. Close to all shops and restaurants in area. Beautiful lake view right from our room. Restaurant was great for breakfast. OutDoor bar with lake view was the best ever. Made our vacation the best trip of all time. Definitely coming back
