I hope I am reviewing the right place, as the address we had for the Bay Front Inn is 15 Front Street, though a part of the place is on a corner, so it may have two addresses.
In any event, my husband and I stayed in Bayfield for only a night recently and I have very neutral feelings about this property, but decided to write a review since we absolutely loved Bayfield and there is so little else written about this motel here on Tripadvisor.
First of all, Bayfield is a cute little town with an ideal location right on Lake Superior at the northern tip of Wisconsin, with the Apostle Islands just off the coast. The setting is spectacular, and even though the town is a little touristy, it's still small and very quaint, and the Bay Front Inn has a great spot right on the first street overlooking the marina/harbor. Great views out to the lake.
The rooms themselves, at least ours, was of a good size and had a jacuzzi right inside the room, which also had a large sitting area at the end of the room, just inside of an outdoor deck overlooking the street across from the water. Even though the deck was a nice bonus, it was directly attached to the adjoining rooms' decks with no dividers other than an open railing, affording virtually no privacy......but a good way to make friends with your neighbors if you are so inclined!
The bathroom itself was very small, had a tiny sink with no counter, and was not very modern, but it did have a nice pedestal sink outside the room in a spacious area that also contained a large mirror and shelf over the sink.
There was a complimentary bottle of wine waiting in the room upon our arrival, but the service offered by the management was minimal. The front desk was also a video rental office, so managing the inn did not seem to be a priority. In fact, even though they promised coffee and donuts in the morning in the office, the place was all locked up and inacessible when we left about 7:30 in the morning.
