Apple Farm isn’t what it once was. My husband and I have visited numerous times throughout the years. After this visit, never again. Must be under new management. Definable not a “luxury hotel” and most definitely not worth the price. Among other things, word to the wise. If you decide to stay here, make sure to bring you own pillow!

I leave this review with a bad taste in my mouth. I left very expensive clothing in my room and checked out. When I called the hotel they couldn't find the items. I won't stay there again. Either their lost and found system is not sufficient or someone walked off with my clothes. It was a bad end to a good trip.

This hotel is one of the worst we have ever stayed in. What makes it worse is the price. $330 for one night, I would still regret paying $50. Unfriendly welcome at check in, then discovered our room was next to the road and looks like a roadside motel. Inside the room it stunk of sewage, was generally dirty, so tired and outdated, very uncomfortable bed with low quality bedding, tiny television, wifi that is very temperamental, and generally very basic amenities for the price. We are on a 3 week holiday (thankfully only here for one night!) and this is by far the most expensive hotel we’ve stayed in (amongst Fairmonts and other nicer hotels and sweet inns!) which are incomparable to Apple Farm Inn. I’ve never stayed anywhere as bad.

Room extremely small. Tiny shower, barely any room to move. Clostrophobic, noisy. Akin to a cheap motel. My husband and had a better experience years ago when we stayed here. Glad it's just one night or we'd have to move. This stsy was very expensive and were so disappointed.

We have stayed here many times and were always happy. This time not so much. The store has a new owner. I am wondering if the hotel does also. Our room was tired looking & dirty carpeting & they would not let us change rooms. Welcome chocolate chip cookies, 4 free wine tastings & water & apple cider in the room was nice. Coffee in lobby in the morning was not hot, bath in the morning was barely warm & lunch dining closed 2 hrs early!! Grounds are really pretty. Gas fireplace is always nice. Bed is comfy & lots of cute lamps & comfy wingback chair.

Asked to sit outside. Lots of tables outside in view. Told those who are immune compromised are seated inside but not near other customers (where unmasked waiters breathe on you, no one wears masks) and that we would have to have a dog to sit outside. That's right, at Apple Farm dogs have more rights than the disabked. Shame on you! The room itself was great. The Apple cider was incredible, I only wish it was around outside happy hour. 2 stars for treating me like a second class animal.

Apple Farm Inn was convenient, relatively comfortable and quiet, but far from the "luxury" accommodations advertised on the website and at the $350 per night price point. Bed was comfortable enough. Check-in process very easy. Little extras like fresh cookies and sparkling Martinelli's in the room, and a wine reception (we were worn out from the road and didn't get to attend). The Market attached to the restaurant had lots of different local items from producers in the area of the Inn. The restaurant only had 7 things on the breakfast menu which was very little variety so we went down the highway to Pismo Beach for breakfast instead. For $350 including tax, which was for a King Specialty room (as opposed to a regular King room), we were pretty disappointed. Perhaps we didn't get to perceive the full value because we were only stopping for one night, but the Inn is definitely showing its age. In our room we could see where the former decorative swirling pattern on the carpet was worn off of high-traffic areas in the room but clearly present under the console table and in the corners, for example. The wall in the bathroom had been painted in a striped pattern but there were clearly places that the wall had been damaged and had drywall or plaster repaired that weren't smoothed out to match the rest of the wall and were just painted over. The bathroom tile and fixtures hadn't been updated in quite some time and we perceived it as mostly just okay. We were driving the Pacific Coast Highway on a couples vacation and the Apple Farm Inn was easily the most expensive room we stayed in, including places like Mendocino and San Francisco, so I imagined details like that would have been considered given the price of the room. I understand that the aesthetic of the Inn is sort of a vintage country style, so my observations have nothing to do with the vintage style of the furniture or the wallpaper, etc., and more to do with old fixtures, old carpet, and other details that were below my expectations for the price point. Considering the website bills the property as "luxury" lodging and that the King Specialty rooms are described as "Luxurious" with "exquisite attention to detail," in this way the Apple Farm Inn failed to meet the mark. It was a quiet and pretty comfortable place to sleep, but nothing about the property was perceived as luxury or exquisite especially for $350 a night.

Situated outside of town but handily placed for the freeway and other restaurants around. Quite comfortable and friendly staff. Good value for money and great bakery on site! Comfortable and good sized rooms. Would stay again and SLO is charming.

Although the room decor is charming and it’s nice to have hot coffee in the lobby, I find the most important aspect of the room is the quality of the mattress, the bedding, and the pillows. Unfortunately the pillows are extremely lumpy and old, the bedding is not soft, and the mattress has no support. I must say that it was so nice and quiet but the bed was just so terribly uncomfortable. The carpets seem old and stained and the bathroom is dated. I find the “resort fee“ to cover the cost of Apple cider which was not hot, and parking quite ridiculous. For the price of this Inn, at least there should be better pillows on the bed.

What a darling hotel! I’ve been here several times for girls getaways and finally brought my husband . He loves it! Beautiful decor , cozy atmosphere, great service. The beds are comfortable and the rooms have a romantic feel. The surrounding grounds are lovely and quaint. The hotel is missing just two things: there are no streaming options for the tv. After a long day of travel , dinner and a swim in the pool, being able to watch a movie would be very nice. Also, being able to stream music would add nicely to the atmosphere. The other issue is the fireplace . The last couple of times I’ve visited, I noticed that the fire only turns on to a very, very very low flame. It’s mostly blue and basically is a waste of space. Please fix this! We called the office and they said that’s as high as it goes. Don’t advertise rooms with fireplaces if you can’t fix this issue.
