I got two rooms for my sister and me. I used the travelzoo discount I received in an email and saved hundreds of dollars. I figured with the discounts we would be put in the motel part of the hotel. Nope. We had great big rooms in the big house. The flowery country patterns sort of make me dizzy, but that's the atmosphere here. It was very clean, staff was nice, easy parking. Fun place to stay.

Room Tip: I think a room on the back side of the main inn would be nicer as you look at the forest behind the...

My wife and I stayed here on our honeymoon and enjoyed this hotel. It was a lot different from other hotels where we have stayed. Our room was large, was very clean and had a fireplace as well as a sitting area. The decor may not be for everyone, but both of us thought it was great. The restaurant on site had good food, but we felt it was over priced. However, there are a number of great restaurants in town choose from. The service at the front desk was exceptional. The host politely answered all of our questions and provided a lot of information about San Luis Obispo and current and upcoming events that we may want to check out during our stay.

We knew from the website this hotel looked different and that's why we chose it. Good choice! It has a unique design to it, almost old fashioned, but in a nice, homely way!

Fabulous welcome, wines offered (tho we don't drink wine) and lots of fresh coffee and hot cider. Cookies on arrival too all made for a very pleasant check in!

Our room was pretty big and really nice, although a bit dark. The cd/cd player fitted perfectly with the hotel. It was quaint!

Pool and spa were a lovely surprise....though both temps could do with adjusting. One too hot, other too cold!

The $5 voucher was used for lots of cookies to take on our road trip and the gift shop was great.

Food in the restaurant was very good.

Room service breakfast was a bit disappointing. The muffin selection was much more limited than the bakery had and too many nuts! (Allergies in the family)

We would've happily stayed longer than our one night passing through. A very relaxing ambience here!!

We just experienced our second stay at the delightful and charming Apple Farm Inn. Although, the room was not as quaint and cute as the first time we stayed, it still displayed the "Victorian" touches. I would have preferred to be on the second or third floor but supposedly this was a renovated room on the first floor. The beds were not as comfortable this time but outside of those two small issues, I would highly recommend staying here and experiencing the wonderful service and vibe the inn gives off. The restaurant is also enjoyable to eat at, however extremely pricey for breakfast. San Luis Obispo is an incredibly friendly and happy town as the reviews state. Will be back again for another stay!

Room Tip: Ask to stay on the third floor. The rooms are really delightfully decorated.

We recently spent 2 nights in one of the king Trellis Court rooms. The room was FILTHY! The bedspread was beyond washing with many stains of various colors. The carpet was loaded with stains and burn marks. The "cute" sofa and chair were black along the seats and arms. The furniture was very marred and scratched. It's one thing for a room to be older, but it can be cleaned. The bathroom had alot of black in the corners as well, and the towel rack fell off, useless.
Also, I reserved by phone, forgot about my AAA, was not asked about discounts by the receptionist. When we arrived, the desk told us "TOO LATE" she was "LOCKED OUT" and could not apply the discount! Ridiculous and insulting!

Thank you for your review and recent stay with us. Please know that we take all comments to heart and we use them to improve any way that we can. We sincerely apologize for the condition of the room that you stayed in. This is clearly not up to our high standards of housekeeping and we will be looking into this immediately. We are working on renovating all of our Trellis Court rooms and the king rooms are next on our list. This does not excuse the condition you found it in though and we are concerned by this. We also appreciate your comments about your check-in experience. We agree that the AAA discount should have been honored and we have already retrained our staff on our discount policy. Once again, thank you for all of your comments. We would love an opportunity to speak with you directly regarding your stay. Please feel free to contact us at your earliest convenience.

We just stayed the night while driving through Route One..would have loved to stay longer and explore the hotel and the surrounding sights.

The hotel "carries off" the victorian touches very well.. Well appointed rooms, huge bathroom with all the right touches.

The staff went out of their way to help us with our needs (a good guide book and map and an extended brunch!).

Will deifinitely stay here again if we visit the region.
