We were planning a holiday in Los Angeles and San Francisco with our daughter and son in law and wanted something different for a stop between the two cities. What a great choice the Apple Farm and SLO turned out to be. Warning-if you like bland beige and brown décor and minimalism this is not for you! We loved our... More

whenever possible, we stay at The Apple Farm. The accommodations, service and hospitality is consistently wonderful. The welcome reception, spacious room (seating area, fireplace and complimentary water bottles and Martinelli's Cider, of course!) and delicious restaurant food make us feel at home. I can't wait to return

Very pleasant and comfortable. I found the fireplace quite relaxing. Great way to unwind at the end of the day. The only negative experience was that the outdoor jacuzzi was full of leaves and debrie from the trees. I only witnessed 2 people in the pool. Perhaps the outdoor amenities were not come up due to the minimal usage. The... More

Stayed many times and never disappointed service, rooms and guest amenities top notch. Staff super helpful with restraunts and directions. Wine reception in evening always nice to meet new friends and share a glass of wine. We love the main building and get room on creek side for pleasant view. Gas fireplace in room but usually not used always pleasant... More

The website doesn't do the rooms justice. When I walked into the room I was sharing with a friend, I was taken aback at the size and how tastefully it was decorated -- definitely to my liking. All the staff we encountered were extremely helpful. Both mornings we enjoyed breakfast in the dining room and both times we had Eduardo... More

I've passed by the Apple Farm in at least 4 times in the last decade or two and have never been able to stay there (they are always full when I arrive). I finally was able to stay in the Family Suite and it was a great stay. The road noise wasn't nearly as loud as they say on their... More

I travel a lot for business, and found this place to be a great change from the chain hotels that I've been staying in. This place made me feel right at home with it's charming furniture, fireplace, gift shop, and bakery. Can't forget the great complimentary wine, too! If I knew about this place sooner, I would've stayed here during... More

quiet, simple, beaucolic place in lovely SLO. good for weekend getaways if you like simple inn type accommodations, very slow service, and time away from a city. If you look for things to do or nightlife, wrong place... OK if you look to rest, enjoy the sun, CalPoly campus nearby, small town life. Long car ride from any major city... More

This was our first visit to Apple Farm and it will definitely not be our last. Our granddaughter is a freshman at Cal Poly so we will be returning over the next 3 years.
