“LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!”
Reviewed 8 October 2013

The Apple Farm Inn is my FAVORITE place to stay when I'm in San Luis Obispo. The rooms are charming and lovely. The food is WONDERFUL. And the staff are great. If I could buy everything in the gift shops, I would. I have been going to the Apple Farm Inn for the past 28 years. I hope to stay in all the rooms some day! I'm working on it ha, ha. If my home could be decorated like the lobby and rooms of the Inn, I never would leave home. I tell all my family and friends to stay there.

Room Tip: I did not use the pool so I cant say anything about it. All the rooms I have stayed in are beautiful...

This place is very cute and cozy. The staff is very helpful and friendly. Didn't expect that they would have the heated pool out door which is great for relaxing when it is chili outside.
They sent cookies to our room and decorated the cot for our child very nicely.
They have a lovely restaurant and souvenir shop nearby that is so cute too.I would highly recommend this place if you go to San Luis Obispo.
Cheers

Room Tip: The rooms in the main building are nicer.

I have spent the last 15 years visiting the Apple Farm for long weekends. It is a lovely get away. I have enjoyed the small trellis court rooms as well as the very large rooms at the Inn. I love my cozy booth at their restaurant. The grounds are lovely and often the price of the room is a very good deal. I just sent my sister their for 2 nights and she loved it as well.

This place is so cute I could eat it.

Wine and cookies on arrival (hi, I need to check in for life) set the tone for a warm, sweet stay.

Our room (7) was quaint, decorated in a friendly print straight off a Doris Day dress. We had the fantastic bonus of a hot tub in our tiny private garden. Dinner in the restaurant was homely and cheery (Turkey pot pie was great) and bonus points for the fab gift shop.

We had a great sleep. The sound of the nearby 101 stayed with us through the night but didn't spoil our rest.

All in all a great, friendly inn with lovely attention to detail and super wine choices.

I would definitely recommend.

When we arrived we were greeted with a glass of wine & friendly reception staff which was very enjoyable. We stayed in the main house, the room was excellent, very clean & tastefully decorated. We also dined at the restaurant - food was well presented, good value & the menu had plenty of variety. Would stay again

I had stayed at the Apple Farm Inn, years ago, so many years ago the internet had not yet evolved and there was no Trip Advisor. The place is just as I remembered it, like a cute country inn.

Upon arrival the staff were efficient and thorough. You received a complimentary glass of wine and fresh baked chocolate chip cookies. There is also a wine and appetizer reception that happens every day from 3:30 to 5 pm down by the pool. In addition, there is beverages in the lobby, which is like a living room in someone's home. These are available anytime from 6 in the morning until 10 at night.

We had booked the two queen specialty room which has a sitting area. Our room was very well appointed; gas fireplace, large flat screen TV, coffee maker, small sofa, chair, coffee table, desk, wine bottle opener, free bottled water in the refrigerator, wine glass, regular glasses, ice bucket, coffee mugs . . . they thought of everything. There were also two bottles of apple juice and chocolates provided at no charge and replenished daily. In the room also had hairdryer, iron, ironing board, terry robes and the red wooden apple souvenir you can take home with you.

All of the rooms are unique, they all are decorated in the country/farm style but in different colors and patterns.

There is a card you can fill out for free breakfast in bed with your choices of hot beverage and juice. These are huge, the one basket has a blueberry muffin, an apple cinnamon muffin and two kinds of scones along with a plate with fresh fruit and yogurt. It is a lot of food for one person. They also offer some additional items to add to it, which we did not knowing how large it was all going to be. She brought in the tray and sat it down and thought to myself, "Wow, that's a lot of food" and then she came back in with another tray.

The locations is nice and quiet, there is a restaurant of theirs on the property and also two gift shops. The grounds are very well maintained and have lit up trees at night along the path to the old mill.

We didn't encounter one member of the staff that wasn't full of smiles and friendly, all the way up from the front desk and concierge to housekeeping and the grounds keepers.

Check out is at noon which is nice that you don't have to rush and enjoy yourself a little longer before leaving. I will definitely stay there again and again.
