Stayed several days at this no fuss motel. The beds are super comfortable with amazingly soft sheets. The room was clean and nicely supplied with Keurig coffee maker and a few coffee blend selections. We had a room with kitchenette which was great for our extended stay and

Room ok, clean. Ceiling fan was helpful but could not turn it off. Beds comfortable but high, would be hard to get into if disabled. . Note no staff on site, text for assistance. They don't clean rooms during multi-night stay unless you put the tag on doorknob. OK for price.

There was rarely any staff on site and the office was never open. As a matter of fact, we received a text from hotel management @ 4 in the afternoon that they checked us in and put our key in our unlocked room. This seemed an extremely unsafe and lazy practice to me, especially

First of all we are so sorry you had a bad experience. The Apple Tree Inn is "new" and completely remodeled. The rooms are big, the beds are super comfortable and we care about all the details everyone would expect. We are a boutique hotel with suites and oversized rooms and we did have some challenges over the very busy holiday. When a guest is known to arrive late the Inn-keeper will text the guest the room number and key entry code so the guest can get in without having to go to the office and wait for his availability. Unfortunately several rooms keypads were broken and needed replacing (which has been done) so the key was left in the room and unlocked for your convenience. This should have been explained to you because: 1) direct communication is vitally important to have guest satisfaction 2) so we can have a chance to correct problems if they can be corrected on the spot: AND 3) so we can improve our procedures over time. We genuinely care. We hope you will give us another chance since we really have an awesome place. Please come back and give us another chance. But definitely call us directly with your old reservation number when you do. Have a Happy New Year.

First, the place was booked solid (I believe 17 rooms but didn’t do formal count). Check in was easy, got a text welcoming ya and that our key would be in our room (we arrived late). 2 queen beds, small bathroom, fridge in room. Plenty of access points to charge electronics.

Thank you so much for your review. Actually the Apple Tree Inn has lots of different options for our guests and everything has been remodeled and under new management. We have a 3 bedroom farmhouse, 2 suites, and 16 motel rooms, one with a full kitchenette. We are in an awesome location and are working hard to improve our efficiencies including better access to our inn-keeper and housekeeping. We strive hard to get better and better. Sure hope to see you again.

Lodging was great. By great I don’t mean four seasons, lazy river, swim up bar, 4 star spa. I mean exactly what you would want for a trip to Julian. We had two rooms (10 and 11) that we’re both very clean with what appeared to be new furniture. Each unit had an AC/heater, TV,

Thank you for the thorough review. The Apple Tree Inn has been completely remodeled but it is still a work in progress. All rooms should have a mini fridge and a Keurig machine and the bedding needs to always be super comfy. Our rooms are very large and always need to be clean and tidy. We will be adding more and more amenities to make the Apple Tree Inn the best value in the area. Thanks for coming and hope to see you again.
