I have stayed at this motel twice. Once when it first opened (we were in town for my grandma's 90th birthday). The other was when I was in town for my aunt's funeral. The interior was dated but clean. There was no smell of mold, so they obviously ran the AC in unused rooms from time to time. Some nicks... More

It was old fashioned, but very clean!! Which is what I find most important in a hotel. The bathrooms are small, but the shower had good water pressure and warm water. The air conditioner/heater is very old and only lets out air at extreme temperatures. The breakfast in the morning is nothing special, but there is a McDonald's very close... More

If you are looking for an inexpensive stay that is clean and comfortable this is it. The building is older, the breakfast is bare bones but the accommodations are fine. You save over half of a hotel near Des Moines airport and there are several restaurants right around it and a Walmart. I would recommend it for any business traveler.... More

My son is getting married and they needed a place to get ready at as the wedding is in Indianola. Called to find out if they would reserve the room for a half day or did they have some sort of special thing that they did for weddings as a lot of weddings happen at the wineries in Indianola. I...

I stayed at the Apple Tree Inn in July during a business trip. The rooms are very basic, economy quality. The rate was low, which was what drew me to stay. There are few amenities, although there is a bare-bones breakfast provided. Sleep quality was okay and bed was fine. Service was good. I would consider staying at the Apple... More

Very Quiet motel and very accommodating staff. The staff had the heat turned on in the rooms so they were not cold when we arrived. The beds were fairly new and very comfortable. The room was very clean and you could tell they had done some recent updating. Overall, It was a very nice enjoyable stay and would recommend this... More

The owner, Mr. Patel, and his staff are very friendly and accomodating! The rooms are clean and the price is fair. I came "home" late and the light had been left on in my room to welcome me back! I have stayed here three times in the last 5 months and have been pleased with the service and quality of... More

We stayed at the Apple Tree Inn during homecoming at Simpson College. The room was very clean and had a mini fridge, coffee maker, and microwave in the room. There had been some recent renovation in the room and the bathroom where they updated some.The continental breakfast was good for a small hotel with both hot and cold options. The... More
