“Disappointed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

Sadly, we were quite disappointed in our stay here. We went off reviews from other people here on TripAdvisor but didn't find it to be as wonderful as others did. Our room was clean enough, but we found bugs crawling around in several places. The continental breakfast was less than mediocre. We don't plan on staying here again.

We would like to thank you for staying at the Apple Tree Inn of Petoskey. We are disappointed that your stay did not totally meet your expetations. We continually strive to exceed expectations and will take your comments to heart. We did note that your stay was in the 2nd week of June, after a cold spring, the May Flies had a late hatching. If a guest leaves their Balcony Screen open, it can let an occasional Winged intruder in. We apologize for any inconvenience. Larry Badgerow, General Manager

Other properties could take a lesson on hospitality from this place. The Apple Tree is spotless and very homey with helpful, friendly front desk staff. We had a balcony room with bubble tub room facing the bay and the balconies are a generous size. The price was excellent and I can't imagine anyone thinking that this place doesn't offer great value. We really enjoyed the walk along the paths by the river to the downtown for dinner two nights in a row. The bed was super comfy and the hotel was full but very quiet. Can't recommend this place enough. Breakfast was pretty slim but adequate. Love Petoskey!

The Apple Tree Inn located in Petoskey is a nice place to spend a night. The Inn is a little dated and the furnishings could use a little updating, but the property is very well maintained and the staff seem to take a lot of pride in their jobs and the facility itself. The included breakfast was better than I expected, there was not a wide selection of hot foods, mainly breads, muffins and cereal. The pool was cold, I think it is not used much therefore the temp is probably turned down a bit. All in all it is a nice place to stay, the beds were comfortable.

Very clean, bright, comfortable, friendly. we had a great room with a balcony overlooking the bay and this jacuzzi right in the open of the room, but so nicely framed in. we just loved it!!! the grounds, rooms, and all areas we saw were meticulously clean. owners on site and working and very helpful and friendly. will definitely return and recommend.

In Petoskey for the weekend and was going to stay at the Hampton but based on recommendations from family we stayed here.
Better price and very nice. Each room has a balcony/patio. We were on 4th floor and you get a great view of Little Traverse Bay.

I highly recommend the Apple Tree Inn

I have always stayed at the flag hotels in Petoskey, so I thought I'd try the Apple Tree. Rates were cheaper than the others. I found the hotel to be just as good if not better than Holiday Inn or Hampton. Very pleasant staff. Very clean and the beds were wonderful. Sometimes when I stay in hotels the bedding feels cheap and/or unclean. This bed had linens that were crisp and clean. Nice furnishings. I didn't try the breakfast, but will next time. Free wi-fi was a must and it worked with no problems.

Room Tip: I believe they all have views of the bay.

My husband and I stayed here over the Memorial Holiday weekend. We were really impressed. It was one of the nicest places that we have stayed. There was a huge wedding party staying that same weekend but if we hadn't seen them at breakfast and boarding their ride to the wedding location we would never have known. It was that quiet. Our room was more impressive than I had anticipated. The spa tub was large enough for the two of us, and the king size bed was very comfortable. The staff added special touches to provide us a perfect retreat after a day of enjoying the area. We didn't use the pool, Jacuzzi, or exercise room, but they were impressive for this family run hotel. Oh! And Breakfast! I loved the waffles!
