“Beautiful Getaway”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2014

My wife and kids stayed at the Apple Blossom for a small family getaway from the norm. We had a great hike and loved the small town feel of the area. Our room was perfect and the woman at the front desk was very pleasant.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2013

The management was very friendly and did every thing possible to accommodate us, but the room left much to be be desired. In keeping with the cheap price and friendly management, we didn't object. But you will need to bring your own paper towels and dish towel for the kitchen area and I suggest slippers to wear inside as it seemed the floors hadn't been mopped and bring your own bath products. The bed was spacious, but not comfortable and we afraid to turn on the ceiling fan due to the large build up of debris and dirt. I read the review on room 13 and can verify, the cold water knob in the kitchen is still broken. I would come back to check it out after the renovations, but not as it is at present. However, it was very cheap and friendly.

Room Tip: I would pick a room with a fireplace.

The rooms were dusty and had a weird smell. I would recommend for you to spend a few more dollars and get a cabin with a view. We go to Idyllwild to relax and look at trees. When you're in these rooms you feel claustrophobic because there is absolutely no view. Horrible service and Horrible room, never again!!

The pictures on the internet are much much better than the actual reality of what the place looks like. This place should be called motel 6 instead because that is basically what it is.

Room Tip: Pay a little bit more to stay in a real cabin to experience what Idyllwild is all about.

This is not a 3-star inn, but it is very cheap. You may be quoted a higher price on the phone, but there is a "$69 all rooms" sign in front, and they will honor this deal even for 2-bedroom suites. We stayed in room 13, which is a 2-bedroom suite that sleeps 5 (1 king, 1 queen). The carpet is new. However, the kitchen sink has a broken cold water knob, so you'll have to get cold water from the bathroom. The ACs in the bedrooms are very noisy and you'll have to turn them off to sleep. However, they also have a ceiling fan in each room, so that was okay at night. Katie, the manager, is very nice and accommodating. However, I understand that the inn will soon be turned into a spa, so you probably won't be able to get these cheap prices anymore. It's also a reason why they won't do any major repair to the rooms now.

At check in, the lady in the office was frazzled, but friendly. She did let us know she was exhausted and overworked. She "wasn't sure" if she had cleaned our room since she said was in charge of doing everything. The room was ok in parts, but there were crumbs on the counter and stove top, leftover, old food in the cupboard and beds that had hairs on the sheets. The bathroom was fairly clean. The decor was hideous, but we didn't mind that part.

Within walking distance of town. Nice rooms. Could use some updating, though. Very friendly staff, especially Katie. Very nice to have a full kitchen when you are away from it all. There are many places to enjoy quiet walks around the area. They have a few movies and games you can borrow, in case you want some "down time".

Room Tip: I would suggest getting one with the fireplace.

I've stayed here several times in the past...My partner found it on one of those Livingsocial deals...and we decided to do book a room for the great deal....not realising it was the old Taquitz Inn...This is a old place...but so charming and rustic...The rooms are spotless, The managers are friendly and very helpfull and bend over backwards to take care of your needs...The Hotel is not HC accessable...but they found us a room with not to many steps...I would not recomend this Hotel to the Handicapped though untill they reconstruct a few rooms...Overall this place is great...and would come again.
