“Back again :)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

We came to the "Apple Blossom Inn", last November.... We just got back from another visit :) We loved it there that much.... We feel so comfortable there, it is just like home to us... We will return as soon as we can, to enjoy the ambience of this wonderful place....We will see you again soon !!!!! :) The rooms are clean, comfortable and just lovely.... Everything you need is here :D.... If you need anything else, at all.... just ask "Mim" she makes you feel like family :) plus...we cooked again in the kitchen... yum...and our little dog was very happy!!! There are also BBQS to use... what more could you want...

Nestled on top of a hill and about a 5-minute walk to town proper, Apple Blossom Inn is the place to stay in Idyllwild if you are on a budget. The Inn has either a 1 or 2 bedroom suites. This review is for the 1 bedroom suite # 25, which is located approximately at the center of the Inn. The suite has a living room with a sofa bed, a 42 inch flat screen TV (with cable) and a fireplace, a kitchen with refrigerator, coffee maker and microwave oven, a small dinette set and a bedroom with a queen sized bed and a closet. The sofa bed is old and back support is non-existent. The bed is comfortable. Guests should not expect a 5 star service here-- you go to the office if you need anything-- from extra bedding to extra towels. The Inn does not even have those pre-packaged shampoo/conditioner/soap as one would expect from a hotel/motel. Aside from this, this Inn is comfortable and affordable. It is also dog-friendly, but you have to fork out $10 per night for your pet. The best feature I think of this inn is the location-- it is literally a 5 minute walk to town proper where you have the shops and restaurants and about half a mile away from Idyllwild Nature Center. Overall this Inn is perfect for budget conscious travellers.
PS-- there is a for sale sign on the property when I was there. Who knows what will happen to the price if the Inn changed ownership...

Room Tip: Not all rooms have a fireplace. Go to their website and they identified those rooms that do.

Small inn with just a few rooms ( 15 I think). This is a great value to get away in the mountains. Don't go in thinking it's a mountain resort. The room was clean, bed was comfortable. Spent two nights and really enjoyed ourselves. Our room had a fireplace and made it nice. We would stay here again.

My Husband and I just stayed there... It felt just like, it was a home away from home for us, but, MUCH more relaxing and beautiful. Our second honeymoon :) after 22 years... The place was clean, comfortable, cozy. We were so very pleased with everything, the room, the ambience, the great people... Our room was so cute and clean :) I wish we could have stayed forever !!! Our dog was welcomed with opened arms everywhere we went. The sweet lady who greeted us on our arrival, named "Mim" was so kind and we just loved her :) She made our stay GREAT!!! Thankyou, for giving us a much needed retreat and such a wonderful time.... We will be back! and plan to return every year to the "Appleblossom Inn" and hope to see Mim again :) maybe we will retire there.... Loved it that much...Plus, we had a kitchen, and cooked :) very cool.........

My boyfriend and I love Idyllwild, and the loved the apple blossom Inn. The Staff is very sweet and friendly and was even willing to take us down to the town to get food, when we got snowed in! The room was perfect for us. Cute and cozy and VERY clean.

My husband and I enjoyed our Anniversary stay at the Apple Blossom Inn. We were greeted with a complimentary bottle of chilled wine and an extremely friendly and helpful staff. The room was very clean with a kitchenette and a large flat screen television in the living room. The place was done in earth tones, which were very calming and easy on the eyes. Did I mention the Great Price and Location? We were within walking distance into town. We ended our late nights on patio chairs, outside our room, Gazing into the clear night sky and breathing the fresh mountain air. We would highly recommend this place. Thanks to the staff and we hope to see you again!
