San Luis Obispo hotel charms with country decor, eatery and gift shop

Conveniently located just off Highway 101, the 104-room property is the place to host weddings, go on a romantic getaway or wine tasting weekend. Visitors fall in love with all the little touches, from fireplaces to the on-site gift shop brimming with tea pots, soaps, framed prints and other Shabby Chic items.

  • Gift shop with country-influenced housewares
  • Restaurant and bakery serving everything from pies to seafood
  • Fireplaces, writing desks and free Wi-Fi in every room

Rooms
Apple Farm Inn channels a country theme in all 104 rooms. Guests sleep under floral comforters and ruffled canopies. Fluffy throw pillows in green and red and landscape-themed artwork adds to the garden feel. Cozy armchairs invite visitors to unwind in front of the fireplace on chilly nights. All rooms boast fireplaces, free Wi-Fi Internet access and writing desk. Upon arrival, guests are greeted by another treat: a welcome basket.  
Dining

Potted plants and patio tables set the scene for alfresco dining at The Apple Farm Restaurant & Bakery, where fresh ingredients make their way into signature dishes such as chicken and dumplings, turkey pot pie and chicken and gravy. Local seafood, baked goods – include standout pies and pastries – tempt with their simple goodness.

If you're there on a Thursday, don't miss a trolley ride down to the Farmers Market plus entertainment and great food choices in town. Catch it next door to the inn. SLO is a vibrant, fun place day or night.

old and in need of updating

I stayed here 10 years ago and had a cute room. I think we were given one of the cheaper rooms (although we paid a higher price [...] than the room type they gave us). The room was very dated, had wallpaper peeling off the wall and the shower was less than appealing. They do have a good restaurant for breakfast but the service was terribly slow, and it appears they were understaffed on a sold-out weekend.

Convenient Location-Room too small

We checked in late at night. Check in was easy. Upon arrival in the room we were immediately disappointed. Basically a redone motel room the size of a bathroom. Two people couldn't move at the same time. TV was small and outdated and there were stains on the sheets. I talked my fiance into not changing rooms as it was late. When she went to the front desk in the morning they dismissed her complaints and said that [...]rooms were always the less desirable and to book directly on their website next time if we wanted another room. There wont be next time. Disappointing as she had recommend the hotel to friends over the last few years.

"Cozy."

Our stay was comfortable. I wish that more info on the size of the standard room was given, it was small. I would have taken a suite with tub. The price was high for the size of the room w/shower. Location and staff were all very nice and helpful. I would not stay in the standard room again.

Apple Farm

The Apple Farm is a great place to stay..The hotel is like staying at a comfortable place like your own home instead of a hotel..It is clean, the staff is friendly and the grounds are beautiful filled with all types of plants and flowers. What more could you want....

pretty, but some drawbacks

We visit our daughter at CalPoly and have tried to find some nice places that aren't too expensive. This is more than we usually spend, but it is very pretty and we had heard so much about it we decided to try it. The restaurant is as good as advertised, and we enjoyed our meal there. The grounds and common areas are beautifully decorated, even though it is a bit like living in a gift shop.I felt a little more like I was staying at a Disney re-creation of a cozy inn, than in a real one. Still, as I say, nicely done. If you don't pay the top price and stay in the lodge and end up in the "traveler's court", the rooms are surprisingly tiny. Despite the four poster bed and the private hot tub, we were less comfortable than we expected, mainly due to a less than pristine cleaning job and the need to maneuver around the small space. Unless we felt like springing for a lodge room next time, we would probably try something else. I'd still have a meal here, though.
