Our 1 night stop over welcome was excellent. Friendly staff offering a complimentary glass of wine, including freely available tea/coffee cookies. We suppose someone has to stay in the Trellis part of this attractive motel, our small room was only one removed from the busy road, which wasn't too bad, however we'd have preferred the main building, but the hotel...

We needed an overnight between LA and San Francisco, and San Luis appealed as we had stopped for lunch on a previous trip, so I wanted to explore more. Our welcome could not have been finer with excellent cookies to boot. Our room for 3 adults was well sized and the decoration was very flowery. All along the corridors were... More

Apple Farm restaurant is on the same property but a separate building. Had a confirmed dinner reservation for 9PM. Showed up at 9:10PM and the doors were locked. Front desk confirmed... More

This is our third stay at this hotel, but it is the first time we stayed in the Trellis portion of the hotel. We love the Main hotel which is pretty and more set up like an inn. The Trellis on the other hand is "very small" bearly fit in a queen size bed. The bed isn't comfy like those... More

Our family just stayed at the Apple Farm for Parent Weekend at Cal Poly. What a treat! The moment you walk into the lobby, guests are offered a chilled glass of chardonnay and yummy chocolate chip cookies. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. The rooms are beautifully decorated - we stay in a different room each time. It is... More

Apple Farm is a nice location, proximate to the Cal Poly Campus. The charm is inviting, kind of like staying at grandma's house. However, they need to update their look. 80's calico country clutter is tiresome and annoying. They should go with a sleeker, more modern country theme of decor. Otherwise, nice place if you don't mind all the stuff.... More
