The owner seems like a nice guy and the room was relatively clean, but this is an old, old place and the overall appearance is sketchy and rather depressing. Even at $78 for the night, it was way overpriced.
We checked in mid afternoon for one night. The room was extremely musty so we left all the windows while open we attended a nearby event. Sadly, open windows didn’t help much. Lots of spiders on the walls and ceiling made falling asleep challenging. The bed was comfortable enough and the hot water was plentiful BUT The Kyes motel is in need of a complete renovation.
Stayed for one night in Kye's Motel passing through Skowhegan. Very friendly reception, and a good price for the room. The room is basic, with a 70s to 80s vibe and the entire complex could do with renovation. Distance to the town centre is about 15 minutes walking. WiFi is a bit spotty. Overall a good enough deal for one night.
We were given a room next door to the office....asked to move because of potential noise...no problem. Our room was clean but very musty with hideous wall paper. Very few plugs with extension cords. Over priced for what you are getting
We were on our way to 'downeast Maine', and stopped in Skowhegan for 2 nites at Kyes Motel. It's the first motel you see as ypu drive in from Rte 2. The owner is friendly and the rooms are clean. The pool was refreshing after a nice walk downtown by the Kennebec River and a run the 2nd day. There is no mw or coffee in the rooms, and I think this motel has had its hayday in the past. There are several small cabins and a lower bank of rooms. A path on the grounds leads Down to the river- behind the lower motel block of rooms, a large tent and folding chairs were set up - so maybe there is a possibility of holding outdoor gatherings there? However, both mornings we stayed, I walked to office, hoping to stop in to check out breakfast and grab coffee. The office was locked, with no trace of any smells of breakfast or coffee. Maybe that service is no longer available? This is a no frills motel, adequate and clean, lots of hot water, but the water from faucets for drinking isn't very good. Just down the street is a great little market where you can grab a bite and coffee before setting out for the day.…
