I've been coming to Apple Farm for years now, And it is sad to say, but the quality is changing and gradually going downhill each year. :-( I still love their Christmas decorations, which are out of this world, and the service people are still very nice and sweet, but the building is getting old, and they aren't maintaining it....

Great place to relax, not sure what all of the rooms are like, but the one we had was excellent. Still updating their TV's so it is a multiple unit when processing, but understand that they are upgrading,,, The people are great, restaurant was great, their house wine a little pricey for the product, but enjoyed none the less....

We have been staying at the Apple Farm 2 to 3 times a year for about 20 years. When we travel the central coast, this is the only place we stay at. The grounds, gift shop, restaurant and inn are gorgeous. Joe, the gardener, keeps impeccable gardens so no matter what time of the year you go, there are gorgeous... More

We were in San Luis for the birth of our grandson at a nearby hospital. We had stayed 2 nights in another hotel and couldn't bear another night, so my father-in-law suggested The Apple Farm Inn. It was the best decision we made!!!! Since it was mid-November, they had just decorated the whole hotel and gift shop for Christmas. It... More

I've been going to the Apple Farm for many years and am never disappointed with the beauty of the décor as well as the excellent customer service offered by all of the staff there. Half of the fun of going there has always been breakfast in bed followed by a superb massage at the hotel spa room, but that is... More

The Holiday pkg. was great for our granddaughters-they were so excited to get special stockings on their pillows before going to bed. Our granddaughter even found elf "Dash" in the gift shoppe and got a t-shirt and homemade family size pie from the bakery. The Apple Farm Inn is the place to go for your Holiday stay. It has been...

My husband and I could kick ourselves for not staying here earlier.

There were a number of nice touches like the cookies when you came and the newspapers, restaurant was good (not great) but it may depend on which part you stay in as to how great it is. We went there as a little getaway on the way up to Berkeley and came on Thursday specifically for the Farmer's Market. Unfortunately... More

As always the Apple Farm was wonderful. The service was excellent, the rooms immaculately clean, and personal great. My favorite place to stay in town…..also love the cookies that come with!!! The gift shop is always my downfall…..lots of wonderful things to purchase. And of course it was decorated so beautifully for Christmas.
