Worst motel! We only stayed here for a night but couldn't stand it. We had to leave early at 5am the next day as my family and i barely slept! Upon arrival we were told that we could get a refund after 15 minutes of viewing the room if we were not satisfied with the room. We weren't expecting much as it is a 2 star motel but we expected for it to be good enough to stay there for one night. We saw the room and the place was very dirty, towels had holesy in them, beds and carpet had stains in them, the overall area felt very unsafe, unfriendly staff, the bathroom was so dirty, we told the man we had spoken to earlier 10 minutes after viewing it, if we could have a refund as he previously mentioned and he began to make up some excuse to tell us we could not, so we felt obliged to stay the night in the room as we didn't want to waste our money. please don't stay there there are many motels/hotels near kelseyville that are the same price if not cheaper that are so much better, cleaner, safer then the kelseyville motel. The cheaper option is not always the better option!

The actual room at the Kelseyville Motel is what one would expect in a budget motel, except that compared to other motels, it really needs a deep cleaning. Housekeeping does the usual job, but it appears that this has been the only cleaning going on for a long, long time. There is dirt in the corners of the bathroom, etc. The towels are small and very thin - not really adequate for a shower and hair-dry. It seems that articles and accommodation is very, very minimal - no resources being returned for operation and supplies. The real issue with this motel is the environment and the service. First, housekeeping did not even clean our room on one day when we were out all day from 9AM to after 6PM. The "do not disturb" sign could not have been on the door, because none is provided. "I told them to..." was the reply from the operator, like that made it OK. We had to accept just towels as housekeeping was long gone for the day. Next, the toilet paper was allowed to run out as very little was provided, with no extra roll - it had to be asked for. No coffee was provided when used, and again, it had to be requested and then only one "regular" coffee is provided, period - no decaf, and no extra pack just in case more than on person drinks the coffee. There was loud talking outside our door on the first night until I called the office at nearly 11 PM. This wasn't bar patrons returning to the motel, this was the operator and others! The same with the next night, only this time it was in the operators room next door!! Until 1:30 AM! Complaints to another involved person, older, presumably the owner being in the office early in the AM on our next to the last day, was met with a bit of a glare, and his attention was rudely turned immediately to an associate that walk up to our conversation. He did not care at all, and would not reply to me. My impression is these owners and operators want you to come, pay your bill, and go - the quality and condition of the accommodations and your say is secondary or of little consideration of theirs. The wifi is not really secure as the password is one of the first one would try to hack in. The cable TV very limited, and issues could not be addressed by people there in attendance. Luckily, this is not a high priority in the my case.

This place is a DUMP! Service from owners are minimal, it is clear they are only concerned about doing things as cheap as possible. Towels are thin as ice, even with holes in them. Walls are paper thin, conversations outside and in other rooms are so loud, it sounds like they are in the same room as you. Clocks don't work and you can't set them. Big mistake in staying here.

Only motel option in Kellsyeville when visiting family. Room small, poorly furnished, stained sheets and basic furniture. Grubby bathroom and hard very small towels. Bring your own pillows as their's felt like small balls of hay. Having spent 3 weeks touring CA this was the worst accommodation but not the cheapest. If you can find a better alternative do so.

The toilet, sink and shower curtain all needed to be replaced. The foot towel was threadbare also. The room is very small but the walls and floor are in good condition. Bring your own pillow since all they have is mini-pillows that are 9 inches thick. I wasn't able to use them and I had to use the bed cover for a pillow.

We traveled too late county for my daughters graduation from Marymount California university, Lakeside campus. We need a room for the night before we got to my daughters house. The rooms were small yet quaint and welcoming. We checked in a little after midnight and the guy was very nice. We felt welcomed. However, in the morning the maid staff could not stop knocking on our door to remind us that it was checkout. I told her we were leaving today and after my husband got out of the shower we would be gone. She came to the door a total of three more times making me stop what I was doing to answer door. Vastly different from the warm and welcoming night staff the day crew was rude and actually made me want to not be there as fast as I could not be there.

We arrived in Kelseyville shortly after dark and had a hard time finding the motel but otherwise our overall experience was positive. Check-in was quick (we had a reservation) and our room, although small and Spartan, was clean and adequate for our needs: a place to rest our heads for the night. The location is quiet and set-back from any main roads.

I was skeptical choosing a room for $69 but this is an exception to other budget motels. Friendly and fast check in. Room was very clean and pleasant. It even had a microwave and mini fridge! Comfortable beds. Quiet surroundings. Very pleasant stay and will stay again when in the area.

We had a scary security issues and it does not appear to be monitored by owner. We also had a bait and switch on our room and my husband and I had to sleep in two separate beds. They gave away our Queen bed they told us. The owner attempted to add charges to our bill after we left that were bogus and fortunately our credit card company refused to pay.

I booked the room based on Lake County's Visitor guide, checking the website, and speaking to the manager to confirm that the place was CLEAN! It is not "quiet" as advertised - the hwy is adjacent to it. The door would not open with the key - lock was loose and screen was torn. Inside looked depressing and cleanliness was questionable. Despite the fact that I could not open the door, the staff kept pushing I take the room.We were shown another room where the door knob was also loose, screen torn, and also depressing with questionable cleanliness. When we saw that the overhead shower light fixture was hanging from the ceiling by about six inches, we did not feel safe and did not want to spoil our vacation by staying there. We decided not to stay and drove on to Lakeport. I am now disputing the credit card charge. I have never in my life had to check a room prior to checking in, however, after this experience, I will never check in without checking the room first. The experience left a bad taste in our mouth for Kelseyville. My friend wanted to return to give them a piece of her mind. Their rates are not inexpensive relative to other places in the area.
