The best way to describe staying here is like staying at someone's grandmother's house in Kansas in the 1980s. The decor, furnishings, beds, and wallpaper is all from that era. Only the TVs seem to have been updated. The hotel has seen better days. We stayed in the "main" building. The loud wallpaper (which covers every inch of every wall...

Apple Farm is not just a place to stay - it's an experience. Our room was small but well planned and everything was spotless. I loved walking to the waterwheel and around the grounds. Breakfast was awesome. Plenty of parking and convenient to CalPoly. Can't wait to go back!

This was our 3rd visit over the years and it's still a special place. We stayed in the main building and the room was spacious and comfortable, and very nicely decorated. The entire building and grounds, and restaurant and gift shop, are very nice. The only thing that bothered me was that they charged a "resort fee" - it's not...

This is the second time my friend and I have spent a week at the Millhouse Suite B at the Apple Farm. It is a complete get-away for us. We don't see or hear anyone unless we choose. The Suite is luxurious with every appointment one could ask for. All interactions with employees were exceptional. Everyone was so helpful and...

From my first phone call to Deborah for reservations to our quick check out, everything was top notch. Fresh baked cookies upon arrival were just what my weary kids needed. The rooms were very comfortable and ours were very quiet. Even though it was Easter morning, we were able to get a table at the restaurant for a delicious breakfast....

The vintage French country style decor gives a unique and romantic atmosphere to the hotel. I enjoyed the Easter weekend there and it couldn't be any sweeter. We were welcomed with local wine, tea, apple cider and cookies as soon as we arrived. Our room was spacious and very well decorated. The bathroom offered good amenities and the bed was...

I asked for and was provided with a quiet room which was room 11 on the ground floor in the Trellis Court building which is just like a 2-story motel. We were right next to the stairs but it was not an issue. This room is really really small. I think if you only had carry-on sized luggage it would...

Have stayed here many times while visiting our student at Cal Poly. Decorations on the fancy side, florals and farm house style. Very comfortable rooms, rather large in main building. Great breakfast restaurant and cute gift shop. They offer cookies when signing in.

We were so disappointed. We went there to have our favorite breakfast. Mine was the potato pancakes which they no longer have and my husband wanted his berry waffle which they don't do the same as they use to. Waffle use to come out with the berry on the waffle with whip cream all around. This time the waffle came...

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience. We took the potato pancakes off the breakfast menu because they were not a terrific seller. We serve a potato pancake slider on our appetizer menu which uses the same batter and if the batter is made up, they can do a potato pancake for you. Hopefully we can prepare...

I am disappointed with both TripAdvisor and Apple Farm Inn. Today looked at the TripAdvisor reviews for Apple Farm Inn. They looked good to me, plus the TripAdvisor website shows a special rate for a "standard" room with two queen beds for $120. Not being that comfortable with booking through a third party, I called Apple Farm Inn and asked...
