My wife and I stayed during the middle week of October. This is a great hotel which is clean with a friendly and helpful staff. We received several useful tips on sightseeing destinations. The indoor (Halloween) decorations and outside gardens show that much work and care are evident! The indoor pool and hot tub are easily accessible beside the lobby and are even covered with a solar blanket to avoid wasting energy. All rooms have a fine view of Petoskey and the Bay. The peak fall colors only served to enhance the experience. As two Canadians who had not visited this area, we were very impressed!

Hotel was decorated in a cheery, colorful way. Room was large and very comfortable! Location was perfect for bike path/walking path. I found the breakfast to have plenty of variety for continental style.....waffle maker, fresh fruit, raison bread, brewed coffee and the make your own single cup. Owners Larry and Karen were very helpful and gave us great tips for touring the area
as well as for our return trip to Traverse City. I would definitely stay there again!

Stayed at Apple Tree Inn over Columbus Day weekend. Had always passed by this site en route to others. In the future, this will be the first place I contact for availability. Everything was perfect. The rooms are quite large and the decor is beautiful. The grounds are kept perfect and the cleanliness of the entire inn is quite notable. The staff was extremely courteous and efficient. Thoroughly enjoyed our 3 day stay!

We arrived in town on our motorcycles without reservations and randomly stopped at this hotel. What a great discovery!! The front desk staff were courteous and very prompt. The property is extremely neat and well kept. The owners have decorated the entire property with a nice flair.

The pool and hot tub were a great way to shake off the 300 + miles of riding we did that day.

We were offered towels to dry our motorcycles without asking. They didn't have a covered parking area, but we didn't expect that anyway. The price was very reasonable and a great value.

We WILL stay here the next time we travel to Northern Michigan.

We stayed here 9/29/13 for one night because Trip Advisor gave it #1 rated hotel in Petoskey. I think we could have done better.

The room was very clean; bed was comfy; pillows were good. The pool was covered up in plastic (like an old grandma's living room furniture) but they said they would uncover it if we wanted to swim. I never have experienced this before and found it weird and off-putting.

The front staff said that they were there until 11pm and then again not until morning. Glad no emergency came up. While the staff was nice, I didn't feel the warm family type of welcome others did.

Our view onto Little Traverse Bay was nice, but not awe-inspiring.

Breakfast was boring and mediocre. No yogurt; no eggs. Just typical little muffins and cereal. Coffee was terrible, like dishwater. We had to go find a Starbucks to be satisfied.

It is a nice, adequate place to stay. If you want a finer place in Petoskey, I am sure you could find one.

Room Tip: All rooms have a view of Little Traverse Bay.

We booked based on reviews from Trip Advisor. We were not disappointed. The room was ready early, and the owner, Karen, couldn't have been more helpful. She gave us local maps and directions to the Tunnel of Trees and great recommendations for restaurants in town. The room was immaculate. Anthony Melchiorri on Hotel Impossible would not be able to find anything wrong with the room. No dust, even in the corners or under the bed. Karen told us that she and her husband are planning upgrades of the bathroom counters, among other things. The breakfast was excellent: continental with waffles, oatmeal, quickbreads, pastries, raisin bread, fresh fruit, juice, brewed coffee as well as Keurig coffee. We loved Petoskey and would stay at the Apple Tree Inn again. Every room has a balcony with a bay view.

We stayed one night in two rooms for a short getaway and visit to the Petoskey area. Both rooms were nice, very comfortable and clean. My daughter and I took advantage of an empty (indoor) pool to play with some balls and other toys that were available. Water was a good temperature, unlike many hotels which don't seem to heat indoor pools at all.

Breakfast selection was typical of many continental breakfasts - wafflemaker, various breads and pastries, cereals, fruits, etc. - and was quite good. The breakfast area, however, is very small (and I mean VERY), so you may need to take your food outside the breakfast room in order to eat.

The only negative was one of our rooms smelled like smoke, which it shouldn't since this is a non-smoking hotel. The front desk's answer was an air freshener spray bottle (changing rooms was not an option since the hotel was full). My opinion: any room that obviously smells like smoke should be thoroughly cleaned before any other guests use it.

Overall, a very nice stay. We would stay here again next time we are in the area.
