I has stayed at this inn about a year ago and was not overly impressed however I am now a fan. The girl at check the evening of August 20th was quick and very friendly. The hotel had a great homey atmosphere with decorating that made you feel at home. Very clean hotel and room with nice amenities in room... More

First, the good news. The rooms here are clean and comfortable and everything in the room worked...TV, bathroom, etc. The Wi-Fi was free and easy to access. Parking was ample and close to the rooms. Now, the bad news. The property describes itself as having "lovely Victorian architecture" with the "comfort of a country inn." It isn't' it's a motel,... More

It was not a good experience for my wife and I. We got the jacuzzi suite for our anniversary. When we went to use the jacuzzi in our room we found some hair in it, so we picked it out and filled the tub. We got in the tub and turned the jets on and some brown gunk came out... More

The room was nice, had a small balcony so you could view the bay. Clean and comfortable. the breakfast area is extremely small, too small for the size of the hotel. Breakfast was OK, quite limited. The grounds are very nice. The visit was enhanced by beautiful Petoskey.

Out of all the places I have stayed in Michigan, this is my absolute favorite! I love the staff,from the front desk to the housekeepers, they are so nice, friendly, and helpful.Most of them know me by name and go out of their way to greet me and talk to me. It is no wonder they are sold out most... More

My husband and I visited the Apple Tree Inn this past June. We had stayed there the previous August, and had a very different experience during that visit. We returned because of our first experience there; we will not return again after this last visit. The room we were given during our June stay was really showing its age. A... More

We stayed for our honeymoon for five days. The breakfast was small and I would rather visit some restaurants for a better meal to start your day. The pool was covered during our stay even though it was indoors. We had to ask the attendant at the desk to pull it back. Also, the location of the pool being right... More

I have stayed here often and Larry and Karen always made me feel welcome. Booked a room for June 17th. Discovered that it is now owned by the same group that owns the Holiday Inn Express. Rate was higher than the biz rate I used to get. Now 72 hour cancellation policy. Not biz traveler friendly when your plans can... More

All rooms have a balcony or terrace with views of the bay. We booked early and got the room for $89 a night for the third week in June, when it would have been $129 if we had booked the week before. The rooms were big compared to other hotels and included a flat screen, VHS player (funny, but they... More

Our visit was the night of June 17. As advertised by the Apple Tree Inn, all rooms have a balcony. However our view of the lake was over the top of buildings and a road, plus our room's view was partially obstructed by another bldg. The sliding door opened however we couldn't get the screen to move to cover the... More
