My boyfriend and I had to stay in San Luis Obispo unexpectedly this past weekend because our car broke down on the way back from a trip to Big Sur. We decided to try the Apple Farm just because it looked different, and I couldn't bear the thought of a dull chain hotel. Well, we couldn't have asked for more... More

If you're seeking a nice place to stay for a reasonable price in the Central Coast area of California the Apple Farm in San Luis Obispo may be just the place. We stayed a couple of nights in this wonderful college town in the middle of California. The hotel has long been a favorite with parents visiting the Cal Poly... More

Unpleasant experience. We needed a stall shower and direct access from the car, so they booked us into the Trellis section. The Trellis section is an old motel with tiny rooms that is adjacent to the highway. I requested a quiet room with a king bed when I made the reservation on the telephone. The room that they gave us... More

Personal business caused us to be on the road during the New Years holidays. A web search, including using TravelAdvisor, helped us to narrow our focus onto The Apple Farm. The Apple Farm web site featured an internet special for seniors that caused me to call their reservations desk. That was the beginning of a wonderful experience! They locked on... More

My husband and I received a night at the Apple Farm as a wedding gift, and since we had not stayed there before, it was a great way to try out this hotel. We had heard good things about the Apple Farm from our friends, so we had pretty high expectations. Overall, the Inn was very nice. The rooms were... More

I've stayed at the Apple Farm several times over the years. I guess the fact that I keep going back means the place mustn't be too bad. The rooms are beautiful and if you go in December the entire hotel is decorated beautifully for Christmas. The rooms are also very clean. The entire place has a very lovely feel of... More

We were on an 8 day wandering trek of California from Monterey down, and found this place by accident. Stayed 2 nights! Rooms are spotless and well decorated. Staff is attentive and special features abound. Mill house is a must see. We would return from Phoenix just to stay again.

I recently stayed at the Apple Farm's Trellis Court - booked online and saved $10, with a $5 breakfast credit if the meal is charged to your room. With friendly and attentive staff and an afternoon wine-tasting reception the ambience and service is more like that of a B+B than a hotel. If you like frilly the decor is for... More

We found the hotel to be average. The room was nothing special and located right next to the freeway so it was noisy. The shower had problems - it kept running hot and cold. Overall not a great stay for us.

Everyone has heard about the Apple Farm and how beautiful and classic and elegant it is. We've always wanted to stay here, and so decided to book here for an overnight visit to SLO. We wanted to save some money, so we opted to not stay in the main building (We stayed in the one story building that featured room... More
