The Apple Farm is a quaint, homey inn that was quiet and comfortable. Service was good with a welcome glass of wine and homemade cookies. The rooms are spacious and the bed was comfortable. Very easy to find, right off the highway. Skip the restaurant on property, there are too many great places just minutes away.

Room Tip: Our room on the first floor was quiet and overlooked a garden.

We were greeted upon arrival with fresh baked choc chip cookies, yum. The rooms were very old world but fantastic. You were given a $5 voucher to be used in the bakery or restaurant. We used it for breakfast the next morning and although it wasn't cheap it was very good !!
We didn't have to pay for parking or Wi-Fi either so thumbs up from us !!

Just a one night stay on our journey north from LA to Carmel but we wished it had been longer. Apple Farm is delightful and we had a very comfortable stay. A little confused on arriving because we believed the building shown on the website was the hotel but this turned out to be the restaurant. This did not matter because the hotel was very nice indeed. The staff were friendly and helpful and our creekside view room was more than we expected, being large excellently furnished well decorated and spotless clean. The free wifi extended to the room which we found was not true of other 'free wifi' hotels. This was an excellent place to stay in the charming town of San Luis Obisbo which we wanted to explore more than we did. We had a very enjoyable evening meal and breakfast at the Apple Farm restaurant.

Room Tip: We had a creekside view room which was very quiet and very comfortable

My daughter and I had the pleasure of staying at the Apple Farm Inn for a quick trip to SLO. The room was spacious and clean and the guest service personnel at check-in were helpful and polite. The warm cookies, cider and complimentary glass of wine upon our arrival was a nice touch. The property is within walking distance to the vibrant downtown area and freeway close for longer day trips to the many nearby attractions. We enjoyed eating breakfast at the restaurant on the property, where we found the food fresh and the portions healthy (I recommend the fresh baked granola and/or blueberry muffin). The grounds are meticulously maintained and seem bigger than they actually are. We met a number of European travelers during our brief visit. I will definitely place the Apple Farm Inn on my list of "must stay" properties for any future visit to the central California coast.

I know people don't like long reviews- but hard to fit all the Apple Farm kudos without it! From the classical music to sparkling decor, fabulous helpful staff, home-cooked meals, serene atmosphere, to the card kept under the bed which reads 'YES we clean under here too!'... You cannot go wrong. With service like this, the Apple Farm deserves your business.

My siblings and I go on an annual vacation. This year we decided to go to San Luis Obispo, CA. To enjoy the wineries close by and visit Hearst Castle. Upon check in at The Apple Farm we were welcome with freshly baked chocolate chip cookies. Which were great! All their employees were super helpful. Specially Evelyn and James. I can not say enough about The Apple Farm and their employees. Sure some room may need upgrading, but they have very comfortable beds. I usually miss my bed when I'm on vacation, but not this time. Another thing is that I'm very particular about clean rooms, but let me tell you. The room where we stay were very clean. If you're looking for a hotel to party this one is not for you, but if you want to relax and enjoy a wonderful time then look no more. We will definitely come back!
