My favorite part of this hotel was the indoor pool with waterfall. It was peaceful to sit poolside while eating breakfast. It was even better floating in the pool watching the interplay of lights. The beds were decent. The hotel clean. The staff friendly. The breakfast ok. I will never go back to Kansas after driving through hail linked to... More

The room smelled like frebreeze covering up, (not very well) the smell of mold, mildew, smoke?, Smelled like we were in a cellar, or worse but on the second floor. There was a dead spider on the floor in the bathroom, the ceiling was peeling in the bathroom, and the sink didn't work! On top of that, a very uncomfortable... More

I was traveling on business and stayed a couple days in June, 2015. A breakfast is included. The main street of Independence is within walking distance and there are several local eateries nearby, as well as a locally owned, fully stocked scrapbook store with Saturday hours and several antique shops. On Saturday morning I visited a farmers market about a... More

We were in the area for a funeral and spent very little time at the hotel, but, our room was clean, the pool area was beautiful, and the breakfast buffet was decent. I felt the quality and amenities were totally appropriate for the price.

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.
