“Not so good!”
Reviewed 7 May 2013

Spent one night here, trying to save $, not sure it was worth it, the room is old but there's no need to be that old/tired/dirty. I obviously got a unrenovated room, it was just icky, didn't want to take off my shoes or sit in the chairs, bathroom was sketchy. I had reserved 2 nights but just couldn't stay. Bed was nice though, and clean. If I had to stay here again I'd ask for a renovated room.

I have stayed in this motel several times throughout the summer on wildfire assignments. Great staff, nice people, the owner was gracious in giving me an upgraded room when my wife came to see me on my fire assignment. Rooms are basic, older motel, clean. I would recommend this motel to value conscious travelers. Not a luxurious Hotel. But remember clean, nice staff, no frills. I will stay here when I am in town again. wi-fi, telephone, flat screen tv. Walking distance to a good restaurant, one block. Lots of locals eat here. Sorry forgot the name.

I stayed at Apple Inn for 1 night to take the ferry the following morning. I got the basic room right in the front, 3 doors from the office.
The room is small but clean. The air-conditioner works well to keep the noise from the street out. There is free Wi-Fi. The ladies at the reception are very helpful and friendly.
I could not have asked more for that price.

The Apple Inn was an ok place to stay but it was still pretty pricy for what it was. Very dated room and facilities. There have been no upgrades for many years. The room was "cleanish" but definitely could of used a little more attention to detail.

The Apple Inn isn't right on the lake, or even within typical walking distance, but it's convenient to the highway coming into town and just a very short drive from the city center. For a resort-y area in the summer, the price wasn't bad at all. No breakfast, but there are a couple of restaurants nearby that open early.

One reason for the different opinions on this place may be the two classes of rooms they have. When I booked they offered newer rooms (with a refrigerator and possibly other amenities) for about $20 more for the older room I chose. Mine, in the building up front next to the office, was decent enough. It definitely was clean, and everything worked properly. I liked the detail work on the retro wood trim throughout the room.

Being old, the room did lack outlets, and those it had were all ungrounded except for the one for the A/C, which was the only one I could plug the computer in to. Due to the arrangement of the room, and my lack of a working battery, that meant I could only put the computer on the bed and sit next to it, which was uncomfortable. That was the only annoyance. There was plenty of ice available in the new building so I didn't miss the fridge.

After reading all of the reviews about how clean this place is, i just had to let it be known our experience. The table by the door had crumbs of some kind...debris appearing like maybe chips were on the floor in between the beds and on the carpet in front of the bathroom and small pebbles of rocks were on the bed under the top blanket. I dont consider this to be clean. Then we found ants in the bathroom and on the tv guide. When i called the office, they offered to come spray inside the room, when i declined (not comfy with an insect spray being sprayed inside an enclosed area in front of my little children), the woman said "well we aren't going to spray the kids" um, no, no chemicals sprayed in the vicinity of my children!

Though the room was somewhat dated, the staff was friendly and helpful. There are not a lot of options in Chelan but this place provides a clean, comfortable room.
