“Bring your own towels and pillows!”
Reviewed August 1, 2008

This is an older motel - rooms in newer section are OK. Avoid the small and hot older section. The rooms are reasonably clean BUT the towels are thin and the most disgusting gray color I have ever seen. We have been given whiter cloths to clean our car from other motels. Did you know motels will lend you old towels if you wish to wash your vehicle?

OK for the price but I would prefer to pay a little more and enjoy my room next time I am in this resort town.

  • Liked — nothing to like
  • Disliked — dingy grey towels and facecloths plus floppy old pillows

Clean room, with refrigerator, micro and high speed internet.

Best shower i have ever used in a hotel. Water pressure and volume!

Beds a bit soft.

Good place to spend the night, and then hit the road.

Our family group rented three rooms. All the rooms were nice, comfortable and extremely clean! I actually had the best nights sleep in the motel bed than I have had for a long time. Very comfortable!! The staff were all very nice and we were able to check in early. I was very happy with the price, the room, the whole thing and will stay there again on our next trip. The Apple Cup Cafe is within walking distance and has very good food.

  • Liked — Comfortable rooms.
  • Disliked — Can't think of anything.

I stayed at the Apple Inn for one night in early September. The sign says that they include high speed internet but they don't tell you that the internet access only comes with "deluxe rooms". I requested the basic room and it was old and dated but clean. The beds were extremely soft (too much so) but the pillows were comfortable and the linens were very soft. There is a family restaurant "Apple Cafe" within walking distance so it is convenient to a quick meal and the lake is a 3 minute drive. The basic rooms come with a microwave but not a refrigerator so food shopping at the local Safeway is only convenient if you have a fridge or are going to microwave everything.

If you are passing through and need a clean, quiet place to stay, this works. If you want a place to stay for a special occasion, then go to one of the resorts on the lake.

If you are planning to drive the Cascade loop then book early at the big Resort hotels in the area - we booked our flight as a late deal and hotels in that area are pretty limited either over priced resort or cheap motel.

Apple Inn motel was clean quiet and comfortable - a bit basic and old but had room for us on our trip. Had done a lot of driving and sightseeing that day and all we wanted was a shower and a bed for the night. Didnt get chance to use the pool or hotub as arrived late evening and it was shut and off early the next morning to explore Lake Chelan.

Lodging on the Cascade loop is pretty basic once you leave Leavenworth if going anticlockwise around the loop - went on to Winthrop and then over to Mount vernon.

Lake Chelan is a beautiful destination. Sunny skies and clear waters are the norm at the base of this 55 mile long lake in Central Washington.

There are several resorts on the lake in the small town of Chelan but they run on the expensive side. If you want something cheaper, consider the Apple Inn.

This is an older property and it is in the category of a budget motel. The beds were the hardest ones my wife and I had ever slept on in our lives. However, the price was right, there was room at the inn, the staff was decent, and there was a pool and hot tub (though we didn't use them).
