Nice place to stay but a bit pricey IMO.
We have stayed at the Apple Farm before. The first time, our standard room was unacceptable because the carpet was soaking wet. They had a pipe burst in an adjoining room. They moved us to one of their best rooms near the lobby which was quite nice. We decided to go back for a subsequent visit to SLO. We went for a higher priced room. Our room was on the floor below the lobby on the parking lot side. The room was nicely appointed though the bathroom only had one sink which was a drag. The problem with the room is that is felt like a dungeon. If you looked out the window, there were plants but behind the plants was a concrete wall since we were below the parking lot level. Also, breakfast is not included with the room. For the price charged, I expect a bit more. We frequent the Mendocino coast in Northern CA and for the same price stay in a beautiful cottage on a cliff overlooking the Pacific Ocean where we can see whales from our room and included with the room price is a fabulous breakfast in their outstanding restaurant. I'm sorry, but the Apple Farm doesn't measure up to that standard even with the free chocolate chip cookies for the guests.
The Apple Farm offers an afternoon "cocktail hour" which is nice. Good wine but the appetizers? Cut up frozen chicken strips with bottled BBQ sauce for dipping. Kind of lame. How about some cheese, crackers and olives or something? Next time we visit SLO, I think we will look around for something better.
