I love coming here. it is so relaxing and calming. It is very country with lots of flower wall paper, vases, pictures and everything else country... so If you dont like country this is not for you. Yes it is a older hotel, but I still love it. I love sitting in the lobby having coffee every morning, or hot... More

A fabulous find in SLO. The restaurant serves excellent food at a great price. The portions are very American size, so go easy. The room deco is very old fashioned and not in a good way. Floral curtains, matching wall paper etc.

I stayed for one night with my husband in September 2011. Our stay was pleasant, we had to wait about 10 minutes to check in but that was fine. We enjoyed a cookie whilst we were waiting! Our room was huge and at the back of the hotel. A king size bed, very comfortable (although quite high off the ground!).... More

We stayed here recently for two nights as part of our trip to CA this summer. I saw this place on travelzoo.com with their special deal. We booked a room in the inn - I think it was called the queen deluxe room. When we arrived, so tired, it was nice to see a lovely lobby and we were delighted... More

Beautiful grounds and atmosphere. Rooms decorated very quaintly. However, no place to sit in the room to watch the TV except the bed due to the arrangement even though there is a couch and chair in the room. Restaurant food is very good especially breakfast but a bit pricey as well. The grounds are a delight to walk around and... More

We booked this by telephone as we were on the road about ten miles from San Luis Obispo. A friend had highly recommended it. They quoted $199 and we accepted, again based on the comments from our friend. What we didn't know was that we wouldn't be in the main building, but in the adjacent old motel building. The room...

My sister and I stayed at Apple Farm for two nights and were highly pleased at the professionalism of the staff and the room accomodations. The room was large with a large bathroom and everything at the hotel was immaculately clean. Walking through the halls was like visiting a museum with all of the decorations.

We made a point going out of our way on our drive from north to south California to stay at this hotel again. It truly is a wonderful experience staying here.

We stayed here with our toddler in Sept 2011. We decided to do so based on the reviews and also advice from family. Also the location is good next to 101 and with a trolley stop right outside. This hotel is a very cozy place, much like an oversized B & B. The decor is definitely "older", but that seems... More
