After our one night stay I find out by the front desk staff that room # 35 is the smallest and always the last room filled when the hotel is totally booked. There is no place for your luggage except on the couch. The bathroom is tiny and to make coffee in the morning you have to get the coffee... More

Stayed at the Apple Farm Inn for 1 night with my mother. Beautiful and peaceful. Lots of flowers and plants around the property. Very cozy inside. Decorated with lovely antiques everywhere. Best chocolate chips cookies upon arrival. Loved the hot apple cider in the lobby. The staff was very nice. Easily located right off Highway 101. Walked to downtown San... More

We only stayed for one night whilst travelling from Monterey to Santa Barbara, but would have liked to have stayed longer. The decor might not be to everyone's taste but it is a complete contrast to some of the corporate hotel chains. Our room was in the main building and was spacious and clean with a 4 poster bed. We...

Won a free nights stay at a travel show and used it to stay in SLO on a college exploration trip visiting Cal Poly. Room is very roomy, clean and comfortable. Nice size bathroom and good size sitting area with a bench seat under shuttered windows. Decorated in kind of a French country style. Bed was comfortable. The room over... More

By far our favourite place on our road trip. Apple Farm is friendly, clean, cosy and just a very happy place to be. You get cookies and wine on arrival and parking is easy as you can pull up right outside your room (it's free too!). The rooms have lots of character and the shower we had was amazing. Bed... More

Apple Farm lists themselves as a 3 star facility. They are probably about a 2 star. The room quality was poor -- extremely small and the air conditioning unit couldn't cool the room down (and was very loud) so that the room was super hot all night long. The interior decor is very tacky and a little grimy. They force... More

When I say step back in time, I only mean that it feels like you are spending the summer with great-aunt Mabel because of the decor. Flowers, flowers, and more flowers decorate most of the rooms. Look at the pictures they put up on their website. The rooms seriously are just like that. The bedspreads, wallpaper, drapes, and furniture all... More

Excellent check in and out, reception very knowledgable about the local area. The room was spacious and very well equipped. Nice touches almost hidden - explore around the room - we found bottles of sparkling apple juice, bottles of water, & chocolate cookies. All of which can also be purchased in the excellent gift shop situated on site. The restaurant... More
