The hotel is the best and only place to stay with kids. Has a great indoor pool which, I believe, is the only one in Independence. Has a few minor cosmetic issues but overall a very clean and neat property. Front desk help was excellent. Breakfast is limited (could use some real eggs and sausage, not frozen, to really hit...

As I've said before, my ratings are based on expectations- you have to judge in the context of where you are, and this place rates a solid very good. Though I've not stayed at other hotels in Independence Kansas, I have stayed in small towns across the mid-west, and this place holds it's own. Our room and the facilities were... More

Since there are only 4 or 5 places to stay in Independence this seemed to be the best choice. Phone reservation was very efficient. Check in easy. Very friendly lady at front desk. Room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was included. Selection was limited, but okay for a free meal.

I've stayed here on business several times and I've never had anything but a wonderful experience at the Apple Tree Inn. There aren’t a ton of hotel options in Independence, KS and the Apple Tree is definitely the place to be. It is hands down better than the popular Microtel up the road (The accomodations there are MUCH smaller). Rooms... More

Stayed here for one night. It was a trip back in time. So many outdated and weird things. The keys were those plastic one with holes in them like a punch card. The room numbering system was so odd. Rooms you think would be on other floors were on the first. They had signs all over the place advertising "No... More

We had to go to Independence, KS for a wedding. the groom recommended this hotel. Staff very pleasant and welcoming, room(king bed w/fridge, microwave and single-serve coffemaker) was clean and comfortable. The pool area had 2 hot tubs and a pool w/a rock waterfall. Adequate free breakfast in the morning. We would definitely stay there again-very convenient to the main... More

I found this place to be FABULOUS. The room was very nice, beds were extremely comfortable. Both my husband and I have bad backs and we slept great in this bed. The pool was so refreshing. With a rock waterfall it added to the experience, so soothing to listen too. The breakfast was nicely set up and the gentleman that... More

For those of us who travel often for business, this is not the best place to stay. Easiest said, It is kind of a glorified Motel 6. Employees are friendly. Breakfast is aweful. Rooms are very plain and average at best. Pool looked ok but in all honesty, I could care less. Wireless internet was useless with an unusable weak... More

It's right in the heart of the historic downtown. Great indoor pool with rock waterfall and hot tubs. Room was very clean and comfortable and the woman at the front desk recommended a terrific restaurant two blocks away (Bella Vita). Excellent breakfast-- besides the usual breads, muffins and bagels, they offer sausage, biscuits and gravy, a good selection of cereals... More

The $94.00 rate that my children and I were given was a little pricey for this hotel and its ammenities. We had stayed in a Quality Inn with better ammenities for $62.00 The Apple Tree in says that there is a full breakfast. Well, there is if you like to heat up frozen eggs and sausage in the two microwaves... More
