“Once again a very nice stay.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013

Had to wait for the room this time, but it was a very nice and comfortable setting. Not sure whether we got the room we had asked for "King Special, King bed, Newly updated", but it was still very nice. However, the restaurant associated with this Inn, has gone down hill. I know that we shouldn't expect too very much from college kid's doing the serving, etc. but still 20 min's to prepare two sandwiches when not very busy (5-5:15pm, 8-10 total customers), give me a break. Will probably stay here again, but won't use the restaurant.

We have stayed numerous times at the Apple Farm in the Trellis Court. The rooms are old but meticulously cared for and each has a private patio with a Jacuzzi. We have also stayed in the newer rooms and found them to be quite comfortable as well. If you're looking for high-end accommodations where staff caters to your every whim... This is not the place for you. The staff and atmosphere here caters to those looking for a peaceful, relaxing, almost whimsical experience. My wife and I are always surprised by how quite the grounds are. The hotel is just a very short drive from downtown San Luis Obispo and world class shopping and dinning.

We have been going to the Apple Farm for many years and have always enjoyed its ambience, service and proximity to so many beautiful locations. The rooms are immaculate, the restaurant delicious and the services and amenities beyond expectation. Make sure if you are in this area to sto pfor anight, you will not be disappointed!

Room Tip: I would stay in the newly remodeled main hotel, the trellis court is nice but to me not as nice.

This is a first-rate hotel and I highly recommend it. Our room was beautifully decorated, with the attention to detail most impressive. The hotel rooms are so unlike the typical hotel/motel cookie-cutter rooms...the room was well furnished and comfortable and made us feel at home. The staff was friendly and helpful. I can't say enough good things about the Inn and will certainly stay there again.

Room Tip: We stayed in the main hotel building in which the rooms are larger than in the newer one story "...

Arriving at the Apple Farm Inn after a day of driving the PCH from San Fran was a welcome sight !! from the outside it looks like an old time farm kinda place full of character and charm and very very cute!
Once inside we were taken back to like an old movie world farm house I expected Strawberry Shortcakes to pop out at any minute !
The front of house staff were warm and welcoming and very friendly and helpful We were offered cookies that were Yummy !!
The room was situated on the lower ground floor.It was a good size !! with a four poster bed and full of charm and character Again it was ver very cute and something out of a Laura Ashley Show home !! all in all it was lovely a bit like Granny's cottage !
We went for dinner at the Inns own restaurant where the food was Very good and the staff also lovely Our waiter I think was called Harvey was very good ! good food and cheap
A great night sleep followed I just wish we had time in the morning to have breakfast ! I would deffo stay again !!!

My husband and I have visited Apple Farm on several occasions and definitely for Anniversaries & Birthdays. If you want a place for a nice get-away with a classy-country flare to the rooms, this is the place! You enter your room with a welcome basket and music. They offer a daily wine reception and coffee and fresh baked cookies from their bakery in the evening. There is a beautiful restaurant, bakery and gift shop on the premises.

Room Tip: The Trellis Court is near the freeways; so should you be bothered by noise, make and book in the inn...

During my honeymoon I spent a night at the Apple Farm Inn. The hotel is really nice and full, composed of a central part and a motel, a restaurant, a bakery and shop. In addition to the pool and to a real mill. We spent the afternoon relaxing by the pool. For the night we chose to sleep in the motel room to nothing was missing, she was beautiful and functional. The next morning we asked for breakfast in the room which was very complete and tasty. In the evening we had dinner at the restaurant and it was wonderful: great atmosphere, great food ... Must try the lemon meringue!

Room Tip: I slept in Trellis Court Queen: excellent value for money.
