I absolutely love this place. Have been going regularly for over 20 years. I feel so comfortable here. The rooms are all unique, like they would be at your house. It's very peaceful & quiet & beautiful. It's a place to go just to relax & enjoy the countryside. I am disappointed about the Mill House no longer being a... More

We've been visiting the Apple Farm for at least 12 years always in December. The decorations are typically over-the-top and amazingly beautiful. This year, however, it felt as though the decorations were incomplete. Inside the lobby and down the hallways were amazing, but usually right outside the front door are a lot of decorations and this year they were missing.... More

It is pretty kitsch and I love it. We have stayed in the court area and inn. Love them both. It felt clean, comfortable rooms, staff was great, free wine, and nice to walk around with good coffee on site. You can walk downtown from here. I always opt to stay here when possible when in SLO.

We stayed here because of the proximity to the freeway on our way to San Francisco for the holidays. There are other hotels nearby, but we knew from our great dining experience, that we wanted to stay at Apple Farm. The bed was really comfortable, easy-to-use television, very clean room and bathroom. We really enjoyed walking around the sweet San... More

I've been coming to Apple Farm for years now, And it is sad to say, but the quality is changing and gradually going downhill each year. :-( I still love their Christmas decorations, which are out of this world, and the service people are still very nice and sweet, but the building is getting old, and they aren't maintaining it....
