“Good but not great”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

Based on the ratings this hotel has received I think my expectations were a little high. Although we did not have any real problems I didn't find anything outstanding about it either. We stayed in the middle of winter so I can't speak for the views. The hotel was clean but a little dated in a charming way. The pool and hot tub were fine and they did provide some pool toys which was a nice touch. They also had a large selection of videos available to watch in the room at no cost.
On the negative side the rooms were not real soundproof (although the hotel was quiet overall, just had some noises late one night from some people coming in late). The breakfast was dissappointing. There was a large selection of pastries and a few fresh fruit options (apples, bananas and oranges) as well as cereal and drinks. However there were no hot options, yogurt, or protein. Additionally there are only 4 small table available for breakfast so we had to eat ours in the lobby using some arm chairs and a coffee table.
Overall it was a good value for the price and no problems with the staff but I would probably try a different option next time.

The Apple Tree Inn is in a great location in the wonderful city of Petoskey. The hotel staff is very friendly and helpful. The rooms are a good size though somewhat dated. Beds and bedding very comfy. The room is heated and cooled by an individual unit which can be noisy. Last night there, could here the next room snoring. Breakfast was a plentiful selection of carbohydrates. We ate elsewhere that last morning. All in all, for the price, this hotel is a good choice, especially if you want to avoid the chains.

Very impressed with the hotel. It was very clean and had a good feeling. Although the pool was not open, it looked very nice, and they have a small work out room also. We had two queen size beds that were very comfortable and we had a nice view of the city and bay. Everyone was friendly. I would recommend it to anyone.

We stayed at the Apple Tree the weekend of December 6 and 7, 2013 for the Petoskey Holiday Celebration. The rooms were spotless and comfortable. Wonderful beds and pillows and a great view of the bay. This is our second time staying at the Apple Tree Inn and we will definitely book a stay here again.

We have stayed there several times, most recently this weekend. As usual, the room was spotless as well as the common areas. Fitness room was great! Will definitely stay again. Staff is always friendly. We stayed in a king spa room and it was perfect!

Stayed here one night. Very cozy and clean. Would stay again. Even though weather was crappy the view of bay is excellent from top floor. Front desk staff very friendly and gave recommendations for dinner.
