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

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

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

We spent one night at the Apple Tree Inn. The web reservation page was down, so we had to call for our reservation. The staff was friendly and helpful on the phone and when we got there. The room was clean and we could park right outside our window, which was nice. The breakfast had some hot items as well... More
