For a nice change, the Apple Farm Inn is different than most motels with it's cozy, country charm. We've stayed here before and always enjoy coming back when we are in San Luis Obispo. I've never had so many pillows on a bed as the one we had in our room this time - 14! James was very helpful to... More

Thank you for reviewing the Apple Farm. We are glad you had a cozy stay with us. Our beds do tend to have a lot of pillows on them but 14 might be the most! The best part is that you you do not have to worry about putting them back in their place. Thank you again for your review.... More

We stayed in one of the updated rooms this time. Comfortable, attractive -- more sleek but still very homey. Polite and friendly service. Very well kept up property, nice flowerbeds. Great baked goods in the restaurant. Menu limited, but food is good though a little pricey.

We stayed here during Thanksgiving week a while back and it was decorated for the holidays in the most wonderful way! There is a large gift shop which features holiday items, and another cider wheel house with more treasures. The lobby of the hotel is beautiful, the restaurant is excellent and the breakfast is amazing! The grounds are just gorgeous.... More

We recently spent another anniversary in San Luis Obispo at the Apple Farm Inn. We've stayed in the inn several times over the years, in both the main inn and the Trellis Court, which is the smaller, less pricey annex. Both are decorated in country Americana with lovely wallpaper and canapy beds. Fresh cookies are given at check-in, and coffee,... More

This was my second time to stay at the Apple Farm. On this trip I realized it's really nothing different than the other major hotel chain. Sure the rooms are charming with 4-post beds and flower wallpaper. But, the rooms are SMALL, and bathrooms even SMALLER. There is so much furniture in the rooms it is difficult to keep bags... More

Nice to stay in a room with great American tradition--from the nice 4-poster bed to the comfortable settee, to the quaint writing desk, and the nice fireplace.

My wife & I have stayed here for many years. Our stay last weekend was wonderful as usual. The rooms are beautiful as always and the staff is excellent. The only negative I can come up with is that they serve too LARGE of portions in the restaurant ;-) This is a great location for wandering around the central coast.
