First, the place was booked solid (I believe 17 rooms but didn’t do formal count). Check in was easy, got a text welcoming ya and that our key would be in our room (we arrived late). 2 queen beds, small bathroom, fridge in room. Plenty of access points to charge electronics.

Thank you so much for your review. Actually the Apple Tree Inn has lots of different options for our guests and everything has been remodeled and under new management. We have a 3 bedroom farmhouse, 2 suites, and 16 motel rooms, one with a full kitchenette. We are in an awesome location and are working hard to improve our efficiencies including better access to our inn-keeper and housekeeping. We strive hard to get better and better. Sure hope to see you again.

Lodging was great. By great I don’t mean four seasons, lazy river, swim up bar, 4 star spa. I mean exactly what you would want for a trip to Julian. We had two rooms (10 and 11) that we’re both very clean with what appeared to be new furniture. Each unit had an AC/heater, TV, and

Thank you for the thorough review. The Apple Tree Inn has been completely remodeled but it is still a work in progress. All rooms should have a mini fridge and a Keurig machine and the bedding needs to always be super comfy. Our rooms are very large and always need to be clean and tidy. We will be adding more and more amenities to make the Apple Tree Inn the best value in the area. Thanks for coming and hope to see you again.

We stayed in the farm house the past weekend. It was really beautiful, big kitchen, nice dining room setup, big living room, etc.

But the AC didn't work. It just wouldn't start.

They didn't send anyone to fix the AC. They said it's not an easy fix. They didn't offer any compe

We apologize for the misunderstanding. When you stayed in the home, only the master bedroom had air conditioning. Due to the recent heat wave and global warming, we have made the decision to add air conditioning for the whole house. The home WILL have air conditioning VERY soon! The work has been ordered. :)

My wife and I stayed here while visiting our daughter and son-in-law. This motel is not fancy, so please manage your expectations. But it is clean, reliable, and the staff is attentive. They have clearly been making an investment in remodeling. Examples of the staff's attenti

What has been done to address the more negative reviews being told here? ie: Dog rooms smell bad, a block to cover air vent, TV with no remote and 3-4:channels, older run down beds etc... I don't see anyone responding from the hotel to speak to any one of these more disturbing reviews. Would be a huge plus for those of us whom never stayed but wish to
All rooms remodeled as of September 2018 ! Farm House and all rooms have AC. Place is beautiful!
