“Great Place”
Reviewed November 20, 2012

Loved the Apple Farm Inn. Our room was very spacious and had a fireplace. Great location, because it is right next to CalPoly. We recommend the restaurant for breakfast. The farm is has goats and other animals.

This was a great place to stay with the family. Room was large, well-appointed, and clean. Bathtub for washing up the boys was helpful. The hotel is what you'd expect it to be: a country kitchen feel. The restaurant served hardy food and catered to the boys too. In-room breakfast was a basket of piping hot basket of what appeared to be fresh baked muffins. The grounds were fun for the family to explore. The gift shop provided an hour of entertainment in and of itself. We were able to take quick drives to Morro Bay, Avila Beach (the lighthouse was not open on a Friday), and the mission. The hotel is also close to the cool little downtown of SLO. All in all, a great find.

This place is amazing. A step back in time.

Courteous helpful service, beautiful grounds and delightful rooms. There was not a thing that my wife and I did not like about this place. I cannot praise it enough.

Their web site and photo shots don't do it justice

Room Tip: All rooms are amazing. Should be more than 5*

The Apple Farm Inn, in San Luis Obispo, California, has been a favorite of many travelers to Central California. Once you go to the Apple Farm..you will never forget it.
With rooms in the main Inn, to rooms in several smaller buildings, there is something for everyone.
Each room is it's own distinctive style, and each offers a unique perspective.
Impeccable decor, immaculately clean, and tastefully decorated, you can't go wrong.
The Apple Farm Restaurant is on site, and has the tastiest food imaginable. Huge portions make it well worth the reasonable price. Save room for dessert!! You won't want to miss out. Try their famous Apple Dumpling, and be sure to get it a la mode..it's to die for!

Room Tip: Rooms in back are my favorite..walking through the beautiful garden is a must, and the creek that ru...

We stayed here with our 5-year-old son. All of the staff was warm and welcoming even with a a child in a "nicer" hotel. We enjoyed the heated pool and hot tub, daily reception, apple cider and the attentive service. We highly recommend the Apple Farm. The only drawback was that the bed was a too soft. We look forward to our next stay.

We stayed in the trellis rooms which adjoin. They are quaint, a little small and not very quiet. The decor is what you would expect from an Apple Farm Inn. The bathroom was on the small side too. The welcoming cider and coffee in the lobby are great when you are pulling in tired. The room towels are adequate.
