“Clean, Noisy, Hard”
Reviewed February 24, 2012

Very small motel with rooms very close to the road. Rates are low. Rooms are cleaned thoroughly, are a little large than average with a small dining area, but mattresses are old and very hard. Road noise is really bad, trucks & such going by so near to rooms can be a problem even with ear plugs. I might stay here again anyway if I find out they have replaced the matresses, but you probably want ear plugs. Folks that run the inn are very nice, but I understand they have been trying to sell it and retire for years so I hope any new owners operate it well.

Over the past few months, I have stayed at the Apple Inn frequently. Yes, there are other Motels in the area but I find myself returning to the Apple Inn. The couple that owns the Apple Inn are awesome, this is the main reason for my return. I have called late, around 10pm and as early as 6am and have been treated like one of the family. Upon arrival to check in they always ask how you are, not how many night's. They always have a goody bag waiting, it is very warming. They are always around the office or the Motel working on something. I believe that the way that i was treated keeps me coming back, just like family. I would say that if you are ever in the area, and are staying over, make this the first place you try to book.

Room Tip: Try to request a room in the back.

This small motel was so clean and the owners so friendly that it really made the day for 3 folks that were on motorcycles all day. The price was great. I requested an extra pillow and was given one gladly. The owner gave us old towels to clean the bugs off of our motorcycles. There is a gas station and mini mart next door...perfect !! They have a grass sitting area under a gazebo where we spent the evening re-living our last 7 days on bikes. A true Mom & Pop motel that was a gem to find !! At check in, they gave us all sorts of coupons for use at the near by Casino. We'll stay again if ever in the area.

I have stayed at the Apple Inn 3-5 days each month for about 3 years and love it. As a single woman I feel very safe and well looked after. The couple who own and manage this delightful motel knew my name after my first stay. I once left an important item behind and it was mailed to me. I have left other items behind and find it in a bag in my room with my name on it when I arrive the following month. One winter the owners called me with a weather advisory before I left on my trip!

There are fancier (& more expensive) motels in Susanville and I have tried several before landing permanently at the Apple Inn.

Downside: small shower stalls and electrical outlets not always conveniently located. I enjoy a thicker towel and bring my own.

The room is ALWAYS pristine clean. The maid has been with them for years and is a lovely woman. The owner couple are just plain good folks and I will miss them when my trips come to an end.

We were very pleasantly surprized when we found this gem of a motel.

It was a late night when we drove by and called the Motel inquiring on a room. The person that answered the phone was absolutely pleasant, and we told her we'd be there in 10 minutes. When we drove up, she was walking back to the office and had already turned the heat up in the room, which my wife thought was nice. We were truly taken aback when our hostess handed us a bag and offered us treats from a large basket in the office lobby. (really nice treats, too!)

The room was very affordable and certainly better appointed than most lower cost motels. Very spacious, very clean, and very fresh. Plenty of hot water in the shower, and an old school convection heater that really kept the room comfy and cozy!

The only reason why we gave a rating of 4 instead of 5 was the bed. It just wasn't as comfortable as some of the other motels we've been at, but definitly not the worst!!!

We really liked this place, our host for the evening was most gracious and really went out of our way to make sure we had a great stay.

I am in the hospitality business and I manage the maintenance at several hotels in Washington and Oregon. When I travel for pleasure, I stay at Mom and Pop Motels, exclusively. The folks at Apple Inn definetly have thee right idea when it comes to hospitality!

Thanks for a great stay! Rey and Susan.
