Apple Farm

San Luis Obispo, California Coast

The hotel

This is where gourmet foodies and wine buffs wrap themselves in the delights of the west coast with a genuine welcome that's as warm and inviting as the Californian sunshine. Apple Farm is slap-bang in the centre of San Luis Obispo's world-famous boutique vineyards and farmers' markets, with plenty of chances to try before you buy more than adding to the allure of the country spirit. Hearst Castle, golf courses and Pismo Beach are all just a short drive away and, thanks to the fabulous home-cooked aromas emanating from Apple Farm's bakery and restaurant, you're bound to enjoy coming back to base. When it’s time to hit the sack, head to your cosy room at either Apple Farm or Trellis Court Motel.

Stayed here with the wife on a recent trip. The rooms are very nice, spacious and clean. Overall the Apple Farm is a very cute place. The location is very convenient to the university, the business districts and to U.S. Highway 101. Overall a very nice place to stay.

We are in our way to Napa from LA and wanted to break our trip in half. SLO seemed a good place to do that and we discovered this beautiful place. We had a king room magnificently decorated. Comfortably large with our own gas chimney in the room. The restaurant is great and service warm and friendly. A simple stopover made us discover a new… Read more

My wife and I stayed here on New Year's Eve. The Apple Farm Inn was still done up in it's holiday splendor. It is a beautiful Inn. We stayed in one of the larger rooms in the main building. It has a canopy king sized bed a fireplace a sitting couch and a lovely glass ice bucket. It is a very romantic room perfect for a couple on a romantic get away. WiFi was a problem in the room - the staff said it was a hotel wide technical issue that could not be resolved due to the holiday - but I must say we have stayed in the that room before and had the exact same wifi issue. But given the romantic nature of the room maybe a couple should be doing something else other than looking at their phones😉 Read less

Looking for a get away on Christmas Day we decided to try the Apple Farm. We have stopped by the restaurant numerous times and enjoyed our time. Luckily we were able to get a room for 2 nights! We had an amazing experience from check in to check out. Every staff member we met was friendly and helpful. You can tell they love their jobs! At check in we were greeted by beautiful Christmas decorations, Chardonnay, hot Apple cider and chocolate chip cookies. Our room was huge! A fireplace and a nice sitting area. The decor gave a warm homey feeling. The unique design gave each room a bay window and we found them to be very quiet. We even found sparkling apple cider, chocolate and an Apple memento to take. We had a tasty Christmas dinner at the restaurant, enjoyed complimentary wine tasting and holiday decor shopping at 50% off. As someone who is gluten sensitive I enjoy the wheat free deserts at the bakery. We will definitely be back! Thank you Apple farm for making our Christmas special! Read less
