We stopped for one night at the Apple Farm Inn on our trip from LA to San Francisco. We found the room in the main guest house (where the lobby is located) to be larger than most hotel rooms we have stayed in. The room had 2 queen size beds and a sitting area with a love seat, chair and... More

I planned an anniversary trip up the coast and this was one of the stops. It is a decent hotel, however, it is definitely for the older crowd. I am in my mid-20s and I felt very out of place. The staff was friendly. The wine reception for guests was nice as well.

Thank you for taking the time to review our property. You are right, our Inn has a unique feel that tends to attract a certain crowd. We are in the process of updating all of our rooms to create a more temporary feel throughout the hotel while still keeping our country charm. I am glad you were able to enjoy... More

The Apple Farm has one teeny tiny room available in the Trellis Court area. It is perfect if you are just looking for a spot to crash and don't want to spend a lot of money. The room was cute, cozy and clean. It also has a gas fireplace!! The decor isn't something I would like in my own house,... More

Thank you for reviewing our hotel on TripAvisor. I am glad you enjoyed our rooms in the Trellis Court. They certainly are great for a quick trip passing through town! The main difference between the Trellis Court rooms and the Inn is the size so you can still experience all of our amenities such as fire place. We look forward... More

This was our second stay at the Apple Farm since April 2007. We loved the overall feel of the whole complex. Relaxing country charm. We love checking out the country store & the mill house. We like to hangout in the lobby area where they provide refreshments. The guestroom hallway is transformed into a display gallery for all the goodies... More

When we drove up to the Apple Farm Inn we were already impressed. The ground were beautiful, lots of parking, amazing scenery. We were there very early and check in is really late.

We had high hopes for our stay at Apple Farm. The website photos looked charming, and the location was a good rest stop along the way to northern California. In reality, the rooms and public areas were worn and tired, and the service is the absolute worst. Upon check-in, we were given a room with one bed, even though we... More

We stayed here on a Sat. night to celebrate our anniversary. There was plenty of parking & check-in was fast & easy. There is hot apple cider, coffee and tea available in the lobby nearly all day, and the cider was delicious. They bring out cookies from the bakery at 7 p.m. as well which was a nice touch. The...

We spent one night here in August 2011 on our way to Los Angeles. We found the hotel to be quirky, quaint and very clean and tidy. We are a family of two adults plus one sixteen year old son.

The hotel was in a good location - near to downtown, the staff was friendly, the restaurant was great (well for breakfast at least), the rooms were clean and comfortable...a very nice place overall, but the interior decor was a little over the top. There were just too many flowers in in the curtains, wall paper etc.
