“Very pleasant visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013

We got a great deal from Groupon and decided to stay a couple of nights at Apple Farm Inn. While we are not "country style" fans, our King Speciality Room was very large and lovely, not too over the top with flowers. The room was very spacious and clean, with sitting area separate from the bed area. My only complaint about the room was that for the size and ammenities of the room, there were only two small drawers for clothes and personal items.

The Inn has a very lovely wine and appetizer gathering in the afternoon, which was a pleasant way to relax and enjoy local wines while meeting other guests. $5 off coupon per person was used in the restaurant for breakfast.

Every staff member we encountered was very nice, friendly and accommodating.

Despite the floral motiff, we will be back.

As many times we have stopped, have not been disappointed, the service sometimes can be a little slow, especially when they are real busy, If you don:t like the food , you will like the gift shop, something for everyone,

Room Tip: have not stayed here , just stopped to eat and shop,

The staff at Apple Farm Inn were incredible friendly and the room was spacious, clean, and comfortable. Some people may find the country theme overbearing and it was a bit out of place in its urban setting, but I enjoyed the touches (complimentary fresh baked cookies upon arrival, lemon water and coffee in the lobby, a fireplace and seating area in the room) and they made us feel rather like we were visiting our grandmother's house.

The Apple Farm is a very quaint and lovely place to stay. We had visited before, but had never stayed at the Inn. Upon our arrival, we received wonderful customer service. The rooms are very nice, the beds were comfortable, and they're were plenty of pillows! We absolutely loved the Apple Farm and would definitely stay again!

Went for a visit to see CalPoly so our actual time at the hotel was limited to evening. Our room was clean and nice. Didn't hear any freeway noise and the staff was friendly and helpful. We did eat breakfast at the restaurant, meal was decent and service was good. We stayed in the newer remodeled part (rm 315) so not sure about other sections of hotel.

We have been regulars staying at Apple Farm every year for maybe twenty years. Always enjoyed it but a couple of years ago noticed it was getting long in the tooth and really is in need of a remodel. The TV,s must be over twenty years old. Furniture is torn in places and all surfaces show wear. Yes, the rooms are a good size and clean but dated. This visit we find they have added a $4.99 facilities charge for first time. Front desk said it was for wifi and the afternoon wine reception (previously free). This is a policy mistake. We have some friends who have told us they will no longer stay here. Also, resturant on property has gotten more and more expensive without offering the service or menu that made them special. We only ate here because they offered a dinner credit as part of room price.

Very nice hotel. Kind of old fashion, but elegant. Very nice staff. Yummy cookies and beautiful setting. You wouldn't know that it was right off the freeway. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will try to go back and bring our friends. The bakery had wonderful goodies too!
