Just let us know at check-in or call (715-779-5558) or text (715-200-4650) the front desk and we'd be happy to deliver them to your room.
What do I do if my door won't lock?
Seagull Bay is an older property with lots of character. That also means that some of the features are a little finnicky. One of those items being the door locks. While we are in the process of continually updating the property, we want to share the secret to the door locks with you.
Although it looks like you need to twist the locks are actually push-button locks. Push in the button and pull the door shut, the key will not lock the door.
Can I control the temperature in my room?
The front desk controls room temperatures with an electric storage unit. Please bear with us as it may take some time to adjust the heat throughout the motel. The Seagull Bay Motel is a green hotel and a proud member of Travel Green Wisconsin. To conserve electricity, the heat/air is shut down from 9 pm to 6 am. Rooms may get warmer during this time, and an alternative method may be required to cool down space. Nighttime temperatures are seldom in the range where an air conditioner is needed, and in fact, none of our units have AC. However, we've found that a cracked window can substantially cool down a room, and there is a limited number of fans available to use during your stay. Please call (715-779-5558), or text (715-200-4650) the front desk, and we'd be happy to deliver one to your room.
Please remember to close the window in the morning as what energy is stored during the evening is then used during the day.
On chillier evenings, we have space heaters available in the office.
