Great feature hotel. Only stayed for one night but enjoyed the old farm days theme of the place and the check in & wait staff were all very friendly.

The whole place was full to the brim with nick nacks, old furniture and ornaments, but it worked well to make this place something out of the ordinary.

Missed out on the free cookies, but had breakfast in the restaurant which was filling. Again breakfast area continues the old world theme and was nice, cakes & cookies from the bakery looked pretty good but we were sugar'd out.

If stopping in SLO, make sure you check out the "drive in movie" theater in town to continue the nostalgic theme and get a hot dog or two from Franks.

We decided to take an all girl's weekend trip to SLO. its a gorgeous city with lots of arts/crafts. We stayed at the apple inn and had a wonderful time. its a cute and charming little inn. it felt quite homely and we loved the way our room smelled. hotel provides free cookies in evening and coffee/apple cider during the day/afternoon. Staff was very nice and breakfast on location(not included as part of the stay) was quite yummy! Overall, a very pleasant experience and i'd love to return!

Best potato pancakes ever and big omelettes, good sized portions for the men and the most beautiful grounds...I love meandering thru the gift shop. The place is very country victorian and charming. We have never stayed here in the inn but would love to the next time we visit San Luis. We have eaten here several times and had always had great food and great service.

Reviewed 29 February 2012

this place is country layered upon farmhouse layered upon victorian. Felt like I was in my grandmother's house. If they had put this much effort and expense into decorating for the business traveler it would be outstanding. But that is not what they are trying to do so i can';t judge them on this basis.

If I were looking for a place to take my wife for the weekend this would be good. they appoint the rooms very well according to the style , however, I just personally don't care for this style. But if it is country that you ARE looking for, this is it baby!!!

Staff are excellent. restaurant on site is adequate but I think it could be better. Most of the time there is cider, coffee, etc in the lobby, and homemade cookies at times which I always seemed to miss. Rooms are very well-appointed but laid out for the benefit of the furniture rather than the traveler. for example, in my room there are two big armchairs with a table between in front of a sofa in front of the windows in the very nice corner bay-out turret. this looks great but none of these furnishings can actually be used because they are just arranged as if staged for a photograph with no way to use them - and they are generally too big to move. I had to move both chairs and the table out of the way and knee-walk the sofa just to open the (very nice) plantation shutters. The corner sitting area is really nice too with a raised ceiling with chandelier, crown molding, etc. I hope the owner read these reviews.The furniture ruins an outstanding architectural job.

Really countryish, like a very sweet apple pie.
Comfortable beds.
Wood floors so can be noisy if crowded.
Good staff.

Room Tip: you might have a lot of foot noise if not on the top floor

Thank you for taking the time to review the Apple Farm. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us! Our country decor certainly appeals to some more than others. However, all of our rooms are completely different from one another so if the traditional decor does not suite your taste we have many renovated rooms that are more contemporary which you might enjoy. All of our rooms in the Inn are quite spacious, so we have designed furniture to provide a seating area for our guests. One of the best things about a trip to the Apple Farm is sitting back and relaxing so we have made sure that there are plenty of ways to do this in the room. Thank you again for your comments. We look forward to welcoming you back again soon!
