Staff was friendly and helpful and reflected the sweet cozy country home feelings of the hotel. Rooms were beautifully decorated, nice-sized and the beds were really comfortable. We were very happy here for the one night we were in San Luis Obispo.

Awesome staff, great OUTSIDE scenery, but Trellis Court rooms are simply marginally-detailed motel rooms. VERY small (I can deal with that), but simple details lacking: outside paint is atrocious; no iron/microwave in room; only one towel hook for wet towels; no room light switch; queen bed MAY be queen in name only, only one night stand...the worst was the cloying, pervasive bleach smell from the 'disinfecting'. I get all the COVID scare, but the overpowering industrial stink of bleach never dissipated and not only killed every living bacteria/virus/germ in a thousand foot radius but also ruined any romantic getaway hope and destroyed every available scent receptor in our noses. Simply unacceptable. This was just a standard motel room, not anything like the quaint Apple Farm advertised. Finally (speaking of advertising), website and emails claim 'RESTAURANT OPEN!' Well, in the strictest sense, yes, but limited hours, limited days and stunningly limited menu. No mention of 'limited' anywhere. All in all? A disappointment on a grand scale.
