“Great Inn in Petoskey, MI”
Reviewed February 24, 2013

The owners are simply kind and carring. The Inn is so clean it almost shines. We were luckly to stay 3 great days at Apple Tree in Petoskey. We travel a lot and rate this place one of the best in the USA. This was our first stay but not our last. Ralph

Very nice facility. Well maintained with usual upscale amenities - flat screen w/HBO, VCR w/movie library, frig and microwave, coffee in room and lobby. Breakfast is well stocked with everything from muffins to waffles. Rooms are large and clean. Employees are very friendly and courteous. We had an excellent four day, three night experience.

My wife and I stayed at The Apple Tree Inn on Nov. 11, 2012. Not likely to stay at an "off-chain" property, the Apple Tree definately gave us an entirely fresh perspective. The hotel is very clean and the check-in staff was very accommodating. After an early evening out, we came back to the hotel wanting to use the hot tub, only to find out that it was covered. When we inquired if it was out of service, the desk staff told us that they cover it as an energy conservation measure and she would be happy to uncover it for our use. The breakfast area was small, with limited selections but was clean and sufficient for our needs. After arriving home we discovered we had forgotten something in the room and called the hotel to check and see if they had found anything. The owner said he would check, and called us back later, saying he found it and made arrangements to mail it back to us. We were very happy with the clean comfortable accommodations as well as the great price. We would definately stay here again and highly recommend making the Apple Tree Inn a travelers choice while in the area.

My husband and I spent 2 nights at the Apple Tree Inn on a quick ski getaway. The staff was very friendly & helpful. The room was very clean and quite pleasant. Our room, like all of their rooms, had a balcony and a view of Little Traverse Bay. Best part of the room: it was so quiet! We know there were people in the rooms on either side, but we never heard a thing. The included breakfast was nice - we love the make your own waffles with white & chocolate chips.

The Apple Tree Inn is within a 20 - 30 minute drive of three great ski resorts: Nub's Nob, Boyne Highlands and Boyne Mountain. The front desk has discounts available for all three.

My husband & I just spent the weekend at The Apple Tree Inn and loved it! Our room was spacious & very clean. We had a fridge & microwave. Breakfast included nice amenities such as multiple toppings for waffles or oatmeal. The staff were all friendly and helpful. The halls and lobby were nicely decorated for the holidays. The hotel is ideally located for additional sightseeing in Charlevoix and Harbor Springs. The ski slopes were only 20 minutes away. One extra nice surprise was the beautiful view we had of Little Traverse Bay. We have stayed at several hotels in Petoskey and have never had a view of the Bay! Great Value. We will definitely be back.

Room Tip: You probably have an even better view of the Bay if you are on an upper floor.

We were called to emergency from 3 hours away when My father was taken to McLaren hospital in Petoskey. We checked in to the Appletree with no notice, the rates were wonderful, the room was clean and smelled fresh (a big deal to me), it was large and decorated very well. They we so thoughtful and gave us a room right by the outside entrance because stairs are difficult for my mom, they worked with us everyday on our checkout time because everything was up in the air as far as my fathers discharge. The Breakfast was good, waffles, bagels, fruit and cereal, with a nice dining area and fireplace. The pool and Hottub were clean and got very little use while we were there. (off season) But I would recommend this hotel to anyone I know who was going to Petoskey. Very Nice! Cathy DuBois 810-348-3078

Room Tip: Every room has a partial view of the bay, but its partially blocked by the next hotel. This hotel i...

Hotel is no way rated #1. Room we had was over priced, bed post came off, vhs in room? no dvd player when questioned owner became upset. when taking shower water was filling up in tub, not draining,table next to bed was very worn should be thrown out. Why fill out survey when owners become upset? Again no way this place should be rated # 1. What a joke!!!! Never again.
