My wife and I booked this hotel as it was one of the only ones available close to the Anza-Borego wildflower bloom on Sunday, March 12, 2017. Not only was the room not clean (mold in the bathroom and shower), but we had trouble getting any sleep due to the thin walls and the snoring coming from the room next...

I took several pictures of the bathroom but have decided not to post them, recommend you look at the room before you pay. We had no choice since I booked a few days in advance and the lady said no refund ($134.00) since we were within the 14 day cancellation window. We stayed in room 12, the heater stayed on...

It is a good place, near Julian to stay. That's all. Although you can think by the photo of the pool that this is a great place, it is just like a road motel. Internet connection was really poor, we barely were able to connect. Only if you are close to reception you can connect.

If you arrive expecting anything above a 2 star hotel, then you'll be disappointed. The Apple Tree Inn is owned and operated by a couple, both of whom are very attentive, accommodating, and warm. Have a question? They are more than willing to answer it. They also rescue animals - bonus points in our book! Our room was very clean,...

This is a no frills motel. The room was on the larger side compared to most motel rooms. It was clean and quiet. It's old but what isn't in the Julian area? This is not in Julian proper but another 5-10 minutes further N. The towels were thin and small. Plenty of hungers in closet was well as extra blankets...

Remembering you are not staying at a 5 star property is the first thing. The property is in a nice location and Charlie was super friendly and very helpful. The room was clean, but dated. I would recommend this property as a budget friendly hotel. The quilts on the beds were a nice touch.

Everything else in town was booked so we ended up here. The owner gave us a great rate. I was shocked at how clean it was! I wasn't expecting that with such an old place. The decor isn't great but it kinda goes with the feel of the town. Decor has an old Paris feel to it (in room 16)...

Extremely overpriced motel not an Inn. Yes, we stayed over the New Year's weekend, but $160 a night was outrageous for the quality. It seemed clean enough, except for the comforter and shams, which I wouldn't want to touch. The bathtub paint was peeling and the tub spout was a capped off pipe. There was a funky wooden box over...

We were in one of those situations where we needed a pet friendly hotel right NOW, and unfortunately, chose this dump! We were in unit #2 on a Tuesday night and spent $162. Even at $89, we would have felt overcharged. The pictures will explain a lot. We are not travelers who need a lot of accommodations or fluff, but...
