Very basic accommodations. A couple miles from downtown Julian, but two nice restaurants are either next door or right across the street. My room had a 19" tube TV from 1975, with only about 5 or 6 channels, but then I came here to escape the rat race. No fridge, no wifi, but parking directly in front of room. Best... More

Yes, it's a bit run down. But it's clean, has a pool and a great location. We chose these accommodations because we have 2 dogs and 1 is older and has a hard time with stairs. You can get a nice room in town but it's going to be a 2-story building or a B&B. This place is a true... More

So we spent one night at this hotel while visiting Julian for star fest event. It was the only place in Julian area we could get that would take a single night reservation without the week end two night minimum. Not much we can say about this place except that it is clean and inexpensive. No frills and very basic.... More

This motel seemed to be à nice place to stop for a night. A pool, a little garden, a friendly welcome. After we paid 112 $ it was too late. No fridge, no microwaves, a poor TV with only four channels and without remote control (sorry! It's gone), a very poor Wifi, which was available at less than 30 feet... More

We ended up at this hotel because the bed and breakfast we booked at lost our reservations. When we drove up to it, it look like the Bates Motel. The Inn keeper was very nice, even though we woke him up, he helped us out and even gave us discount since we were staying for two nights. The room he... More

Enjoyed a lovely weekend to celebrate our anniversary at the cozy Apple Tree Inn. The owners were extremely friendly and made sure we had a perfect stay. The room was very clean and loved the country touches in the room and the decorative linens. The location just on the outskirts of Julian is perfect, there is even a very nice... More

This was our first time to Julian Ca. Stayed one night in the king room. This was a upgrade that was given to us. The owners were friendly and had lots of suggestions of fun things to do. The room was clean and well taken care of. I come from a small town with small family ran motels like this.... More

Enjoyed my stay here; quiet, restful. Pool not heated but refreshing. Rooms modest but clean. Good food next door at Jeremy's on the Hill. Close to town and Santa Ysabel Casino.Nice hiking trails nearby.

What a disappointment. no upgrades on the rooms since 1972...small t.v. with 3 channels, old saggy bed, noisy air cooler, dirty public areas..Owner seemed more interested in fancy car than in taking pride in his facility...Pricey considering lack of comfort and amenities Don't walk,run away from this property...it is better to drive 20 minutes to Ramona
