“not cheap, mid week, out of season - dirty room”
Reviewed 22 October 2011

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.

Room Tip: i dont know any

would I stay here again? Absolutely! If you want five stars...not for you. An old motor court, you can only imagine the Kelseyville Motel in its hey day. I like it's funky appeal and clearly others did too. I met another Heron Festival attendee in the parking lot. I needed something inexpensive and close to Clear Lake State Park and this was ideal. Not only that, but downtown Kelseyville, while no surprise is suffering some of the same economic issues as the rest of the world, has some great dining options -- Saw Shop Gallery Bistro was delicious as always and enjoyed some fabulous ice cream at LuLu's just down the block.

So back to the motel. The owners are very friendly! The rooms are small but more than sufficient. include small fridge, microwave AND free wireless from which I am currently writing. Other reviews complained about the lack of shampoo. Okay, while they have added some small packets....I would suggest you bring your own if you have more than a handful of hairs on your head.

This was a very negative experience in several ways:
* Our friends were quoted a price over the phone and then charged $20 more.
* We were assigned a very noisy room next to the freeway. When we asked if we could be moved we were told no (despite the fact that a good number of rooms remained empty that night).
*Our room was so small, the furniture filled almost all the space.
* Coke machine was broken and took our money. Clerk said he knew it was broken, but did not put a sign on it and would not give me a refund.
*Towels were dirty.
*Only one cup in room for coffee

Quaint place. Under new management. Previous problems with checking in late have been resolved. (But still no free shampoo.) It's particularly quiet and relaxing.

No, there is no pool.

I like the place, and will stay there again.

  • Liked — Convenient, quiet.
  • Disliked — a bit primative (like the town it's in)

Spent a night with my family at this 'motel'.

Very small room (don't even offer complimentary shampoo so bring your own!).

No one there after 5pm - they left a note for me to call to get instructions on what room we were in (good thing my cell service was working there!).

Ordered a non-smoking room. Unfortunately, the room smelled so bad we had to leave the windows open - which meant we had to listen to the highway traffic which is right next to the motel!

This motel looks like your typical 'weekly rate' facility. Nothing cute or quaint about it. NO affiliation with Best Western, AAA, etc...

Very difficult to find - obscure location behind a lumber yard. Terrible location next to a noisy highway.

If this is the 2nd best out of 5, I can't imagine what 3-5 are like.

Advice: if you can't get into Konocti Harbor, stay in Clearlake Oaks or go up the road to Lakeport.

  • Liked — parked right in front of room.
  • Disliked — Ordered a non-smoking room and got a room that reaked of smoke

We planned our trip at the last minute and this was the first place we found with availability for one night. We arrived late (around 8 pm) but the owners emailed us to say they'd leave the key under the doormat of our room.

The motel is nestled in a secluded woodsy area just off the road, with large trees sweeping across the parking lot, a welcome change from the strip mall aesthetic typical of small motels. It feels like a small family-run business, with a coffee machine and Internet station in a little room at the end of the building. Indeed, though we arrived late and leaving around 8:30 AM the next day, we never saw the owners or any staff.

Our end room was quiet--they ask guests to observe quiet hours after 10 PM or be kicked out. And it was well-furnished, with a minifridge and microwave. But the carpet was damp for some reason. There were a whole bunch of bugs (more in that room than we encountered camping the next night!), and the towels were threadbarren and dirty.

It's a shame, because with a little loving care this could be a really nice place in a great location. But it wasn't quite worth the $72 we paid.

  • Liked — Nice location

This place is GREAT! Upon first driving into the motel, you immediately at feel at home. The rooms are clean and offer many amenities which other small motels overlook, such as microwaves and fridges in each room. The rates are affordable. But most of all the owners are very friendly and helpful.
