Remembering you are not staying at a 5 star property is the first thing. The property is in a nice location and Charlie was super friendly and very helpful. The room was clean, but dated. I would recommend this property as a budget friendly hotel. The quilts on the beds were a nice touch.

Everything else in town was booked so we ended up here. The owner gave us a great rate. I was shocked at how clean it was! I wasn't expecting that with such an old place. The decor isn't great but it kinda goes with the feel of the town. Decor has an old Paris feel to it (in room 16)... More

Extremely overpriced motel not an Inn. Yes, we stayed over the New Year's weekend, but $160 a night was outrageous for the quality. It seemed clean enough, except for the comforter and shams, which I wouldn't want to touch. The bathtub paint was peeling and the tub spout was a capped off pipe. There was a funky wooden box over...

We were in one of those situations where we needed a pet friendly hotel right NOW, and unfortunately, chose this dump! We were in unit #2 on a Tuesday night and spent $162. Even at $89, we would have felt overcharged. The pictures will explain a lot. We are not travelers who need a lot of accommodations or fluff, but... More

Very clean and comfy. We stay here every time when visiting family. Sure, it's not updated but that's part of the charm. Nice pool area. Lots of little shops and places to eat within walking distance. Also, you avoid the crowds in downtown Julian. It's a great little place to stay. Very quiet and peaceful.

Room appeared to be clean, however my husband dropped part of his hearing aid on the floor by the air vent...that portion of the floor probably hasn't been cleaned in months. Bathroom linens were better than average. However, the sheets on the bed were cheap and rough. The room was large and comfortable but bathroom needs remodeling, new carpeting and... More

I stayed at Apple Tree three nights, while visiting Palomar Observatory and the Julian area. The inn was comfortable and pleasant (very comfortable bed!) and the office was friendly. I loved how quiet it was at night.

It's ok to stay for ONE night only. The place needs serious remodeling. The carpet is old and stained. Furniture is old and ugly. The room doesn't smell fresh and clean. You might find spider webs in the window. Tube TV, maybe 5 channels available. The owners are friendly. They might be doing their best in a small town The... More
