My husband and I spent a few days here with another couple and it was very relaxing. We stayed in one of the updated rooms and it was beautiful. The room was much more contemporary although it still had that country inn feel. We loved the black and white decor accented with silver and light purples. My husband especially enjoyed the new flat screen television!! The only thing missing was the "handy-dandy" information binder normally found in the rooms with all the Inn information. I think they were working on updating those as well but because that was missing we didn't really have important details about the Manager's wine tasting reception. We left for the day and returned to learn the reception was over. The front desk check-in person didn't give us any information either. Next time we know to ask so we can plan a little better. All in all, the Apple Farm Inn is wonderful and we always come back for much needed rest and relaxation!

Room Tip: All the rooms are wonderful but a room on the creek side are normally the quieter ones because they...

Thank you for taking the time to post a review and for your recent stay at our property. It sounds like you had a wonderful time and we are glad to hear it. We are pleased that you enjoyed the new decor in your room and the flat screen television. You are correct in saying that we are working on our Guest Information Binders and they should be finished very soon. That being said, we most definitely should have informed you of our Guest Wine Tasting Reception. We do apologize that this did not happen. We have retrained our staff on this and we look forward to welcoming you again soon!

This is our go-to place when we need some time to relax and reconnect. The hospitality of the staff is top notch and the details like a welcome basket in each room, evening turn down service, daily guest reception etc...leave us feeling pampered. The restaurant food is delicious! We have recommended the Apple Farm to all our friends and family. Can't wait to go back again!

My wife and I have eaten at the excellent Apple Farm restaurant several times when passing through the area but have never stayed sat the Inn. We decided this time to stay as we had an engagement in Pismo Beach on a thurday evening and decided to stay through the weekend. We were both in need of some rest and just some peace and quiet. The room was charming and the staff was very accomodating and friendly even down to the cleaning crew. The private hot tub and patio was a welcome addition. We had a very relaxing time and will definitely come back.

We called to San Luis Obispo on our tour of the cal coast and we were sorry we did not stay more than the one night we did. It is a really nice relaxing hotel with beautiful rooms and friendly staff. The following morning we had breakfast at the restaurant and it was really super . We wont forget our stay here ...full marks. P S the shop is also a nice place to visit.

My wife and I have always enjoyed stopping at the Apple Farm restaurant while traveling on 101. One year, we decided to come here to stay at the Inn and had a wonderful, restful week end. There is much to see in the area and we enjoy the break from the busyness of the Bay Area. Over the years, as our children have grown, we have grown weary of providing a full blown Thanksgiving Dinner for family and guests. We chose to come to this peaceful spot for the holiday with our teenage sons last year and had such a wonderful experience, we will be returning. Our room was nicely decorated and quiet. The grounds are beautiful with fresh flowers. The staff is attentive and friendly. Our boys love the fresh baked cookies placed in the hotel lobby for guests each evening. If a family needs a break from the hustle and bustle of life, this is a great getaway destination. The grounds are very nicely decorated for the holidays. Highly recommend staying here if ambience and quiet are on your list of requirements.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back of the property, off the creek are quiet.

This is a homely retreat with inviting reception on arrival and our unit had a lovely 4 poster bed and reminded us of a dolls house with its unique decor. No breakfast included but the bakery on site was more than adequate to get us going
