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

For a number of years now, I have always stayed here... Enjoy the indoor pool, breakfast, staff and a clean hotel... Good location if you would like to walk around downtown.... ........................

I realize Independence is sorely lacking for decent hotels but this is ridiculous! I was assigned room 401 and upon walking in to the room I was assaulted by the smell of mold and mustiness, my sinuses were instantly plugged up and I immediately turned off the a/c unit. Speaking of which, have they EVER cleaned these things? I took... More

We loved being able to walk to the downtown which was nicer than most. The swimming pool was the crowing achievement according to my daughter. The rooms were spacious and clean. The breakfast was nicely done, and the tables overlooked the pool and waterfall. The staff was attentive and we felt appreciated. While not the cheapest in town, we got... More

Fortunately for us, we tried at the last minute to get a room at the Appletree Inn and were pleased and surprised to discover that due to a cancellation they had one room open and we took it, cancelling our reservation at the local Super 8 (which said on the web site AND the sign out front there was an...

4-star relative to area. 3-star property in reality. Breakfast closes at 9:29am sharp and the muffins start running out by 9am. Plan accordingly. This is Fairmont or Springhill Suites of Montgomery county. Back in the day, OtisSpunkmyer were served, but no more. :-(

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
