This was the first time we stayed at Apple Blossom Inn. My favorite place to stay is the Quality Inn. This was a Friday night and we needed two rooms. Quality Inn did their best to give me a great price, however I was sad to find the Apple Blossom Inn for HALF the cost. Therefore we tried the Apple. One can tell it is very clean on the outside. Inside was as well. However, it is very dated. It is clean, but only has the basics. For one night with a group of people this was fine. It does not have a pool. This would be a deal breaker in the summer for us. Does not have an elevator. All rooms are entered from the outside. Didn't like going up the stairs to our rooms. However, the view in the back of the hotel was pretty- right there in the woods. They have a deer feeder and so there were deer there eating as the sun went down. Cost of room was @ $44 for two in a room - 2 beds. I did like how they run the breakfast. It is located in a very small area in the office. You take the tray from your room and bring it , get your food and then take it back to your own room. We liked that. Sometimes you just don't feel like having a morning hotel breakfast experience with strangers in that kind of setting. Some hotels do not permit you to take food to your room. So this part was great. The Apple does things that are right for the price. Wouldn't expect a big breakfast buffet here. What you do get: coffee, juice, cereals, inexpensive pastries and hot biscuits and gravy. Not the best in town, but a nice attempt in this price range. It was quiet and secure. I am under the impression that they run a tight ship at the Apple. I would rather stay at the Quality Inn, but in this situation some in our party couldn't afford to pay for a room in the $85 range. It was good to see what a room is like in this price range. In the past I have stayed at most hotels in this town and can say that ones in this lower price range are not at all as nice as you will find the Apple. First we went to the popularly rated motel next door to the Apple and their rates were @$50. They had no vacancies and sent us to the Apple. The rest is history.
