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. Yes, our sone was graduating with his masters degree from Cal Poly and all our visits to San Luis Obispo was at the Embassy Suites because we were familiar with the Hilton brand. We didn't know what we missed out on until we had to switch hotels because... More

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.

I was so excited to stay at the Apple Farm Inn on our 5 week trip to USA and its safe to say the motel did live up to my expectations. It was home away from home. Exactly what you expected after seeing the website. Gorgeous and comfortable rooms. 4 of us stayed in the family room. The restaurant was... More

Apple farm is our place, honey and I. We go at least twice a year, always close to Christmas as we enjoy the drive up to SLO in Dec. We love to take a room with a hot tub for chilly albeit romantic nights. My new favorite is the room over the general store. I love how very very quaint... More

This hotel is very quaint and unusual for California. The staff was very professional. The rooms are unusual and it is nice and quiet for sleeping. The cons would be the Christmas decorations that were being put up on a busy parents weekend in october before Halloween. Also, the maids kept knocking on the door. In my opinion, this hotel...

Couple of years since we stayed and of course things do change for good or bad ! This is a much larger hotel than brochures and websites seem to portray. Whilst we were there, heavy rain caused our room to flood and we had to be moved somewhere a little drier ! Decor attractive. Excellent food and drink. Great dining... More

We have periodically thought about staying at the Apple Farm Inn but when driving 250 miles and crossing Los Angeles during rush hour it never seemed worth the relatively expensive rooms. However, while planning a trip to Northern California when we could leave early and arrive early enough to enjoy the hotel and San Luis I also happened to receive... More
