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

My husband and I planned to stay here while visiting relatives during Christmas break. Unfortunately our wonderful kitty cat of 16 years is not doing well, and we had to make the difficult decision to cancel our trip so we could helping our ailing cat. We emailed and my sister who lives in in town went to the hotel to... More

This is a very basic motel with a bed, wood paneled tube tv, and a little table with chairs. It's perfect for one night, but definitely not somewhere to stay for a vacation or even a weekend getaway. The fact that it's dog friendly and doesn't charge a pet fee is amazing! However, their pet friendly rooms come with a... More

This hotel is probably only used when hotels in town are full. For $150 it is outrageously overpriced. The walls are scuffed and dirty (See picture) and I refused to take a bath in the tub (again..see picture). Will never stay here again.

We spent a night there a couple weeks ago with our car club. Charlie and Jaime (owners) made us feel welcome and worked really hard to accommodate our needs. About 3 miles from Julian downtown proper, large asphalt parking lot. We will return.
