“Be warned of a safety hazard!”
Reviewed June 14, 2010

Our family stayed at the Apple Tree In to attend graduation exercises for Gonzaga University in May 2010. We chose this hotel because of the positive reviews on Trip Advisor. The hotel was adequate, but I feel compelled to offer a safety warning to those who choose to stay here. Shortly after arriving, my father tripped on the threshold of his ground level room and crashed to the floor. As a result, he tore the skin from his hand and could not raise either of his arms above his shoulders.

We brought this safety issue to the attention of the staff on duty and my father followed it up with a letter to the manager, but he heard no reply. Not only was the threshold raised several inches from the ground, but it also had a lip on it which made it easy to catch your foot. Even my brother caught his foot on the threshold, but he was able to catch his balance. We noticed some of the other thresholds had a similar elevation. We advised the staff to deal with this safety hazard by marking the threshold so that one can notice that it is elevated as well as put a sign on the door that says “Please watch your step” so occupants are made aware of the danger.

After my dad returned home, an MRI revealed that he tore the rotator cuff in BOTH shoulders so now he has to have surgery on each of his shoulders. Not only did this accident put a huge damper on our family gathering (he couldn’t attend the graduation), but now he is facing surgery so I offer this warning in hopes that others will be warned of this potential safety issue.

We sincerely apologize that you had an accident during your stay with us. After you informed the front desk clerk and provided a guest comment sheet, the owner and maintenance were notified, and action was immediately taken. We acknowledge that a few of our ground level rooms do have a threshold that's raised several inches with a "lip" on it. For these rooms, we placed custom cut wood in between the ground and the lip to fix the problem.

Again we apologize that you had an accident during your stay and appreciate your constructive criticism as it allows us to improve any safety hazards. We've never had any accidents such as this in the past, and hopefully this will be our last. The Apple Tree Inn staff sincerely hopes your father has a quick recovery. If you decide to stay with us again, please let us know of any concerns you may have and we will do everything we can to help you.

Location was very close to our daughter's apartment. There was a Rosaures Supermarket across the street that stocks organic groceries. Several shopping centers and restaurants are located within 1/2 mile of the hotel. It is also near the intersection of at least two highways. Complimentary continental breakfast was pretty good. The wireless or ethernet internet were available. However, bandwidth was flaky at times.
Overall a pretty good stay. We have used this hotel at least once per year between 2003 ad 2008.

We have stayed at the Appletree Inn on two occasions, each time the staff has been excellent and very courteous. In February we had a mini suite very large room, tv is far too small for the size of room and the bed was adequate, I would suggest getting king size beds and also provide coffee makers in the rooms. The noise from upstairs was annoying and children should be placed on the lower level, we were kept up really late due to the noise. Location is great for shopping and restaurants are nearby. Canadian money at par was a plus!!!!

I've stayed here during "Hoopfest" weekend during the final weekend of June and the room was clean and the bed was comfortable, plus the hotel staff was friendly and professional, I also liked the fact that alot of restaurants/shopping are within walking distance from the hotel, the only downside is the room I've stayed at didn't have a refrigerator but it didn't stop me from having a good time, overall the Appletree Inn was a great value and while the hotel is located about six miles north of the freeway at least the hotel was located in a good safe neighborhood.

Had a 3 room suite for 4 nights, with 4 adults and 3 kids and we had plenty of space. The Apple Tree is definately older but everything was clean and comfortable. The breakfast was simple but there was plenty of it, as well as great staff. We will stay again!

We decided to stay at the apple tree inn because it was the only hotel that would let all 6 of us stay in one room for a reasonable price. The room was plenty big enough...with 2 bedrooms. It had a full kitchen with appliances directly out of the 70's which we found kind of charming. The pool was small but adequate for our needs. The beds were kind of hard which my husband loved. The room was very clean and well maintained. They offered a decent continental breakfast too. If you are looking for the Hilton this is not your hotel but if you are looking for a reasonably nice room that allows large families without breaking the bank than I would definitely recommend this hotel.
