“Reminiscent of a classic”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 September 2013

The Kitchenette rooms at the Apple Inn Motel are clean, roomy and well appointed! There was a BBQ with table seating right outside our room. The pool is small and very 1960's but I thought it was fine. The location was good as it is on the main road though town and the center is within walking distance. Our stay was lovely and the staff were very friendly. I'll stay there again!

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 August 2013

I have stayed here for over 10 years at least twice a year. Summer and fall. It has gone downhill slowly.
My stay 8/10-12/13 was the worst. Was in an upper level room. All the other times was in a lwr level rooms. Stairs up to room were dangerous with nails on the railing sticking up 1/4 inch on hand rail. @ loose stair treads. One of the reasons I first stayed here was because of the propane grill they let guests use. They have been missing for a while. I asked if they were back when I made my reservation. Yes they are. Sad to say they were in terrible shape. One had a floppy lid with one missing bolt to hold the lid. The other was so dirty with no way to clean it
The pool was dirty. could not see the pool bottom at the shallow end. True pool was in heavy use by kids. still should be filtered and cleaned. Room was good. Wi-Fi did not work for me. Told office said tey would look at their stuff and maybe reset it. Nothing happened till after a thunder storm cut the power to the entire motel. Then the Wi-Fi worked. That was over 8 hrs after my office contact. I think I will be looking at other property's

Room Tip: lower level rooms are good. Cement block walls very quiet

Stayed here a year ago and had no issues, very clean. This year was a different story. The hot water would not shut off in the shower, there were cob webs all over the ceiling in the room and bathroom, the bed was so old it dipped in the middle, the sheets were worn out and pilled, gas stolen from our parked boat and the air conditioner sounded like a freight train. The worst part was waking up with bug bites and seeing bugs crawling in the bed. We went to the hotel front desk to complain and the girl at the desk just had a blank look on her face and had nothing to say. I asked for another room and she was going to charge us for the difference. After telling her I was not going to pay the difference and that we would just check out and go some place else, her response was "OK." Not only did they loose 4 more days of a paying customer but we were also going to be coming back for another week in September. We went across the street to the Midtowner and had a fabulous room with owners that take pride in their establishment. We also met another man and his daughter that also checked out of the Apple Inn due to bed bugs the same night as us. STAY AWAY!!! The Apple Inn is dirty and they don't care!!!

We had reservations to stay here and were a bit nervous after checking the reviews. However, the Apple Inn is pretty decent. The bed was a bit soft but overall pretty comfortable. There is very good wifi. We even received it by the swimming pool! Rooms are clean and a decent size. Included are a refrigerator and microwave. Rooms are also of a good size. There s no food but there is a good breakfast restaurant, The Apple Cafe which is about a five minute walk. For the price we do recommend this motel

If you are looking for a clean, comfortable place to stay in Chelan you can't go wrong with the Apple Inn Motel. It is not by the water, but the prices compensate for that. There is a pool & hot tub. Front desk lady was very nice & friendly, check in/out was quick & easy. Room was very clean & comfy.
Not a ritzy place by any means, but if you like a moderate price & aren't picky about super updated decor, this motel is a good value for your money.
We stayed in an Executive King Room which came with a microwave & small bar/fridge area. Very handy to have!
Will stay here again for sure.

Room Tip: Recommend the Executive King Room.

We stayed during the 4th of July weekend when all other rooms were booked. Our non-smoking room had an overpowering smell of cigarettes and room freshener. My clothes actually smelled like cigarettes afterwards! The front-desk clerk was sympathetic, but couldn't offer more than more room spray (arguably almost as offensive as the smoke, in a sickly sweet kind of way). They have a clearly posted no-smoking policy on all of the doors and at the front desk on check-in (with a $300 fine!) but that clearly doesn't guarantee that you will get a truly smoke-free room. If they aren't fully booked, check your room before you settle in.

Room Tip: smell it first

Older motel two miles from the boat ride. We stayed in two different rooms at different times.
The rooms were very good and clean. You could tell they have cleaned and painted the place
to bring it up to standard. We looked at the motels down town on the lake. I am an old man.
$250 to $350 a night for a bed and a shower is just too hard on my heart.

Room Tip: no real views. They went out of their way to get me on the ground floor. My old legs and I don'...
