“Just make sure you get a good room”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2014 via mobile

This hotel is really pretty and has good service, but the problem you can find is check with the hotel what you are getting first, I booked a 2 queen bedroom, when I check in they have me the room #2, it was really small with a full size bed, that's not what was posted in any site.

Then I go to the front desk to complain they showed me 2 more rooms, still not good enough, then they showed me the deluxe room, that was exactly what I thought I paid for but they are asking for $40 extra, the staff was really kind but not helpful, so I stop complaining they offered me cookies that they ofer every guest as a consolation, still I paid around $160.00 with no breakfast and the deluxe is just $20 extra with breakfast included.

Then I find out there is a special package in part of the hotel they call the trellis package (for $120 breakfast included), that's in the motel area, no baggage assistance, not a lot of privacy and I don't really think they care about the costumer, that's where I am right now when I paid 40 more dollars just for the room

So you just make sure the room you are getting is not in the motel.

I'll upload pictures of the rooms they offered me.

We stayed here for one night on a drive from SF to LA and, whilst it's a little out of the way, it's a great hotel. We were greeted by friendly staff and given cookies and drinks as soon as we walked in. The room was fantastic, large and spotlessly clean. The restaurant was good rather than great but the service was excellent. We would happily recommend it!!

We planned a last minute trip to Apple Farm San Luis Obispo based on being able to secure a reservation. Fortunately, we did. We had a wonderful, relaxing stay. The attention to detail at Apple Farm is second to none. My job demands attention to detail so I am highly tuned into that and this attribute is impressive at Apple Farm. Upon arrival, we felt very welcome by the staff members and all matters at check in were handled efficiently. The hotel is close and handy to the down town area. We would highly recommend a stay at the Apple Farm!

Stayed one night at the Apple Farm with my husband and 3 children. The check in was very efficient and staff were very helpful. All of us were pleasantly surprised by the lovely cookies we were given in arrival. We had two rooms which were unfortunately in completely different buildings. The room in the main building was lovely and had loads of space. Both rooms were very clean and comfortable. Also, we ate in the Apple Farm restaurant. The food was beautiful and everyone was more than happy with their choice. This hotel offers a very different experience to the usual corporate hotel options and is most definitely worth a visit.

Room Tip: Try to get a room in the main building.

We stayed in a Mill House room previously; those are over a real working mill with water pouring next to our jacuzzi tub balcony overlooking the lavishly-flowered, lush grounds replete with gardens of flowers and plants. Apple Farm is like the coolest hotel possible (light switch-controlled fireplaces and canopy beds, deluxe decor and all) set within country botanical gardens, for lack of a better description. This time we stayed in another specialty room with a big round high ceiling... Wow! Then there's the grist mill making real apple cider live, the amazing food and desserts of the on premises restaurant & bakery (we're talking homemade cobblers and grandma's apple pies, y'all) and the nicest staff possible :) We're all smiles here, folks!!! PS - Can be extremely romantic or family-like, depending on who you're with. Also, we took Amtrak from Los Angeles to get there.... easy to do and they are close to Amtrak and the incredible beach.

Room Tip: Although all their rooms are great, if you want to pay a bit more, get one of the Mill House rooms o...

WOW is all I can say! My daughter and I stayed one night in room 115 - a huge beautifully decorated room decorated in all light greens. This room has a huge four poster king size canopy bed (VERY comfortable), a seating area with a love seat, chair and coffee table under a bay window, a writing desk, a large flat screen TV, a gas fireplace, and a fridge. The bathroom is also very big with a full length mirror on one wall and a very large mirror over the sink. On the mirror over the sink was even a suction cup vase with two fresh mini carnations inside which was a very nice touch. Included in the room was the souviner apple decoration to take home (which now sits proudly on my living room end table!) two bottles of apple juice, and some Hershey kisses. I wish my bedroom and bathroom at home were even just half as big and beautiful. The hallways are all decorated in a floral country theme too - just beautiful! The grounds are immaculate and so pretty, especially at night with the lights in all the trees. At check in we were given two delicious chocolate chip cookies and a $5 gift credit to use in the gift shop, restaurant, or bakery - we choose the bakery after eating the yummy cookies and took a few cookies for the road. I wish all my rooms on our trip could have been as nice as the Apple Farm Inn and wish we could have stayed much longer. Also I got a fabulous deal through Groupon, so this made the stay even that much better! If we are ever in the area again we will definietly be staying here!
