Kelseyville Motel

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

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.

The room seemed reasonably clean but for a non-smoking room it smelled like smoke. The toilet was not properly fastened to the floor and "rocked" when you sat on it. Then we discovered the shower curtain was moldy on the inside. We expressed these concerns upon checkout and got the response "Have a nice day." I don't think the woman spoke English. We wanted to stay in Kelseyville because it is closer to where we were going. But next time we will stay somewhere in Lakeport instead.

Well equipped clean and OK confusion over booking, comfortable bed. Mouldy shower curtain needed attention. Close to freeway so a little noisy, cheap! No breakfast but coffee machine in room, noisy neighbours

i have lived in kelseyville for decades and unfortunately had told many people that this was a decent place to stay even tho i had never stayed there. we finally slept there the night before we moved out of town. we are also aquainted with the owners and considered us almost friends, however for a tiny dirty room we were charged 60.00 mid week and out of season. husband chatted with the owner the next day and they gave no compensation. shower broken, bathtub ring. wish i could remember more to tell you but if you can find a room elsewhere, do.
