We made a reservation to stay at Apple Farm Inn but had to change the dates. There was no problem with making the date changes, our complaint is with the lack of manners shown by the Reservation Staff member who answered the phone. Rude, rude, rude! In fact he was sooooo rude we totally canceled our reservation and made them... More

I was in LA on business and decided to go up the coast for a day. This was a great drive once you got out of Ventura (seemed like the end of the megaplex) . .. I went to Morro Bay, then turned around to return to San Luis Obispo for the night. I stopped at the Apple Farm and... More

I love the Apple Farm and come here multiple times a year. My one complaint this trip is a game the hotel has during the holidays. Guests are encouraged to find the missing elf, Dash, in exchange for a chance to win a two night stay. A little elf doll is hidden in the gift shop for guests to find.... More

San Luis Obispo is a quaint down to earth town, and I cannot think of a better place to spend time in this town than the Apple Farm Inn. This property has a charm of its own with extremely friendly staff, quaint old style rooms, with a fireplace and well appointed but not luurious decor. There is a gift shop... More

The Christmas decoration is truly unique and I have to say we liked a lot that idea. We loved the fireplace in our room!! Excellent idea with free tea, coffee and cider in the lobby.

We stayed here for Thanksgiving weekend. We thoughly enjoyed our stay. The room doors were decorated,and the hallways were even decorated. It really felt like a holiday. When we registered we were given wine, cookies, cider, meal vouchers, and an invitation to a guest reception (held every day). We felt like celebrities!! The gift shop was great.

Loved the Apple Farm Inn. Our room was very spacious and had a fireplace. Great location, because it is right next to CalPoly. We recommend the restaurant for breakfast. The farm is has goats and other animals.

This was a great place to stay with the family. Room was large, well-appointed, and clean. Bathtub for washing up the boys was helpful.

This place is amazing. A step back in time. Courteous helpful service, beautiful grounds and delightful rooms. There was not a thing that my wife and I did not like about this place. I cannot praise it enough. Their web site and photo shots don't do it justice
