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.

we had been in contact with the manager for months with a July wedding planned and then moved the wedding to end of August. We had made arrangements to book about 30 rooms. We continued to check-in to monitor the situation with hotel rooms and closures due to Covid. Each time we needed to talk to someone, it required emails, phone messages, and then do that again because no one returned calls or emails quickly. Well, come to find out that the larger hotel section of the Inn was closed- the motel section was open but the hotel was a place for essential workers. We called multiple times to ask if the Inn would open and if they would be able to accommodate our group. By the end of July, still no answer with a definite yes or no- just a maybe. SO, we had to look around the area to find a place to take our group. Not once did the Apple Farm reach out to us to let us know that our reservations might not be available- we only found out because we called and emailed several times. The lack of communication is awful. Luckily we were able to book a block of rooms at another hotel in the area and they actually gave us a better rate than the Apple Farm. Too bad because the Inn is super sweet and a fun place to stay. Unfortunately, when we return to this area, we will NOT give them our business. Read less

This is where you go to feel like you are back in time, want great service, desire alternative amenities, and enjoy boutique places. You won't find marble everywhere and bellhops in tuxes; you will find lots of charm and it's well worth it.

And we have... my husband and I again enjoyed a great breakfast at the Apple Farm. Consistently great food, good service and nice atmosphere. Be sure to visit the shop, upstairs and downstairs and of course, the bakery. We will be back for either lunch or dinner.
