I occasionally visit Independence to see family and always try to stay at the Apple Tree Inn. The rooms are clean and the staff is friendly. The breakfast is typical of what you would find at other hotels in this price range. I've never used the pool, but it looks nice enough, although maybe a little dark. I like the... More

Clean and relatively convenient. Expensive fees for dogs. Rooms with interior hallways which are dim and carpeted. Dark indoor pool which I never saw in use. Taciturn not cheerful, not helpful and not knowledgeable employees. Rooms with 80's southwestern décor. This place badly needs a facelift. Super 8 and Microtel are both better places to stay.

I recently obtained a reservation for the Appletree Inn located in Independence, Ks. The wife and I found it to be clean and comfortable. On a site note I was attending my high school 50th class reunion and this hotel is located very close to the Sinclair Pipe Line building. This was back in the 60's the home office and... More

We stayed here April of 2015. There's not a whole lot of options in Independence, KS. This hotel is centrally located in downtown Independence. We stay in a room with two full beds. These rooms are a bit small once you get a family with all the stuff a family hauls in them. The bathroom in the room we had... More

For a number of years, I have always stayed here and enjoyed it... clean rooms, polite staff, nice breakfast and not sure there are any others in the area with a pool Next to downtown, restaurants and across the street from the only theater.

I was a little concerned like most travelers in a smaller town but someone suggested this hotel I was pleasantly surprised it was clean from the outside the staff was extremely friendly and helpful and the room was a good quality for the price paid. The nice surprise was inside the room was an actual leather reclining chair that you... More

We were going through town and found this hotel. Very friendly staff. The rooms were clean and spacious. The pool and whirlpools were wonderful. I would stay again next time in the area. Nice variety at breakfast as well.

87 gets you a king in a well-furnished room: desk and table, chest of drawers, recliner, separated wc/shower, vanity/sink, fridge/microwave, coffee maker, and night stands. Plugins are adequate, but not abundant. Breakfast is a-ok for the hotel/area, but not insanely good (included in the rate). Downside--it ends at 9:30, so if you're adjusting to a timezone, adjust quickly. Pillows-a-plenty, but... More

My husband and I stayed here for a couples night away. We got a suit that used to have a door to the pool area which would have been worth the $150 but they no longer have doors to the pool and the price of the rooms are the same. The room was clean and orderly, but the walls were... More

My 8-year-old daughter and I stayed at the Appletree Inn on a Saturday night in mid-October after visiting the Little House on the Prairie museum. I'm used to staying at chain hotels, so I wasn't sure what to expect. However, I'd read the reviews and thought I'd check it out. We walked into the lobby and were immediately greeted by... More
