This was our first trip to Northern, MI. we decided on Petoskey, MI. We consulted TripAdvisor for the best mid-range hotels in the area. We chose the Apple Tree Inn. All the positive reviews were absolutely correct. From the friendly front desk stall, great management to the clean rooms. This place is a gem!

I can only hope you were commenting on the Petoskey Super 8 hotel and not the dreaded Apple Tree. If not please do not let the Apple Tree know they have a good property. I want to sneak over some night and cut down their tree. Honestly, I wish I owned the APPLE TREE. It is a very pretty inn.

Surprisingly friendly. Best price is obtained by calling hotel directly. Nice, spacious room with 2 queen beds. Prices are seasonal, cheaper before Memorial day and also less after labor day. On the weekend, a pre-made egg omelet and sausages added to free breakfast. Otherwise, typical light frare including Belgian Waffles. Clean and fresh. Nice view of Little Traverse Bay from...

I sit back, relax and think just how do I humbly respond to your review of our Petoskey Super 8 hotel. Your comments took me back six years when I first came on board. At that time we were a sixteen year old property that looked "dated" At that time it need approx. $100,000 worth of improvements plus a great...

This was our first trip up to the Petoskey, Mi area. So we consulted TripAdvisor for an idea of the best mid-range hotels in the area. We chose the Super 8 after looking at the positive and negative reviews to know how they handle business. Well, the staff, from the management to the maintenance were great. Responsive to parking issues...

I would say that the cost was pretty high when you consider the property. No elevator and having to haul luggage up the steps. View of lake is minimal. Our room faced the woods. And the rooms were out of date....basic. There were nice touches here and there like the workers were nice and attentive the information book was great....

I am some what disappointed with your review. I will agree with it however. The room rate: I spend a minimum twenty minutes every day (which is every day of the week) going over the room rates of fifteen of my competitors. I look at previous years numbers and try to read our potential guest state of finances. I do...

We stayed at the Super 8 in Petoskey for two nights. At first, we stayed at the Michigan Inn and lodge but were disgusted with the conditions there. So we cancelled our last two nights and instead stayed here. Boy, I am glad that we came to this WONDERFUL hotel! The hotel grounds are very nice. The hotel had a...

The Super 8 in Petoskey was great for us: clean and comfortable room, the bed was very comfortable, a better than average breakfast, friendly staff. The breakfast included waffles (with the waffle irons), hard boiled eggs, biscuits and gravy, hot oatmeal, yogurt, and other items. We would stay there again.

We got a handicapped room which I made sure not to reserve. At least 4 times during our stay we seen most of the staff out front smoking. The decor and furniture of the room looked like it was straight out of the 1970's. We had a remote controlled lazy boy chair that I'm sure was probably a darker purple...
