Apple Farm Inn
Ranked #2 of 32 Hotels in San Luis Obispo
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 7 January 2014

We took my mom here to celebrate her birthday. She loved it. The concierge was great, friendly, professional and helpful. The hotel was so cute and decorated for Christmas. The room was neat, clean and had a fireplace and beautiful bay type window with a creek alongside. My only recommendation would be to stay on the top floor of the main building, because otherwise all you here is foot traffic above your head. Other than that it was a wonderful experience.

Room Tip: Stay on the top floor

From check in to check out we were treated to excellent hospitality by all staff. Nice quiet fireplace rooms with frig. Nice touch with all the holiday decorations. Rooms were furnished and finished to the max. bordering on too much but not crowded. Homey feel throughout. Snacks and wine in the evening was a plus. Food at the restaurant was very good as well. Close to Hwy 101 but heard nothing in back rooms. Will recommend and return.

Room Tip: Go for the newer rooms in the back of the complex.

We had the best ever stay for New Year's with Apple Farm and the SLO Symphony. The concierge sent a link and we were able to have Orchestra center second row seats for a wonderful genuinely warm concert. The wine tasting was also memorable along with the social hour each night,at the property, of our stay. The front office staff, restaurant staff, bakery staff, gift shop staff and room service staff was also so very special that it is impossible to say who was the best!

Room Tip: Third floor Creek Side rooms

We stayed here for one night - arriving late. Our travel agent had messed up on our booking and the hotel staff did all that they could to sort the problem. Complimentary glass of wine, mulled cider, tea and cheese scones available at reception. Rooms and hotel decor is quite twee. Restaurant breakfast was the best I ate all holiday. Mind that the restaurant is separate to the hotel so you may need to wait for a table, even at breakfast ( but it's worth the wait).

We stayed in one of the tiny but cozy newly renovated queen rooms. The decor was very nice, including a gas fireplace. All sorts of treats were provided (welcome wine, welcome cookies). The breakfast was not included but we did get a $10 voucher to the restaurant, and used it towards a breakfast (which was good). I enjoyed the atmosphere of the hotel overall.

Have stayed with the Apple Farm family dozens of times over the last 25 years. Always interesting to see the changes that keep it fresh, while also experiencing the charming comforts that make it truly a second home atmosphere.

This is a place for travelers who enjoy charm and hospitality. It is not slick and commercial or contemporary in styling. There are many floral prints and landscapes in the artwork, and many rooms feature floral wallpaper. If you love being in an atmosphere celebrating the joys of gardening, come on down!

Brought our 9 year-old grandson for his first overnight stay. We were in a renovated Trellis Court room in the single story building opposite the massage center. Small king suite with gas fireplace, sofa bed, armoire with refrigerator, and fabulous multi-jet shower. The colors were soothing aqua and dark woods, including hardwood floors. Grandson gave his thumbs up, and so did we. Great size for the three of us.

Fresh chocolate chip cookies upon check-in, and an afternoon reception for guests featuring wine, baked goods, and iced tea all welcome you and kick off a gracious visit.

Loved this year's holiday decorations in the main inn, giftshop, and around the property. Always a festive atmosphere to be found at the Apple Farm.

Room Tip: Trellis Court - Ask to be placed farther back from the highway. Main Inn - Seek a creekside room on...

I have stayed at the Apple Farm once before and was in the main hotel. The room there was fine, but this time was in the Trellis Court. The rooms are so small they allow no room for two to move around. My gf and I stayed 2 nights this week and hardly had room to put anything on the bathroom snk or the table in the bed area. My opinion is that if you don't get the main hotel, be prepared for a cramped room.

Thank you for taking the time to post your review and for your recent stay with us. We are so sorry to hear that your room did not exceed your expectations. Our Trellis Court rooms are about a half size smaller than our Inn rooms and can be a bit cozy for two people. We do our best to make the space usable, but we will continue to try to improve this with our renovations. We appreciate your feedback and we certainly hope to have another opportunity to welcome you in our Inn.
