We sayed here in April 2015 for one night. The B&B is an old converted motel, but don't let that put you off. The room we had was charming (if a bit lacking in natural light) and very comfortable. There was a bit of road noise, but nothing too worriesome. It was an easy walk into the downtown area from... More

Nice little hotel with French ambiance. We found it a nice walk to the Thursday night farmer's market but it is farther than just a block or two. Our room was on the small side but comfortable. It was much preferable to sit out in the patio. The staff make every effort to make your stay enjoyable. Soon after we... More

This is not your typical bed and breakfast. You are much more than a guest here. You are a treasured friend and nothing is too good for you. Or your dog. We stayed in the Chanticleer Suite which carried the French rooster theme throughout---including the bed, lamps, pictures and various objet d'art. It was tres charming. There were so many... More

What a charming place. The wine tasting & tasty morsels served on the patio in the evening were wonderful. Homemade dog treats. Super friendly staff. Turn-down service is a knock on the door with a delicious truffle and info about breakfast & weather. Breakfast was wonderful: a leek & goat cheese strata for me, & gingerbread pancakes with a chocolate... More

Petit Soleil is a great little B&B. The rooms are comfortable and the service is impeccable. Their breakfasts are so unique and tasty. There's a little restaurant next store, Splash, that serves the best clam chowder. All-in-all you will definitely not be disappointed!!!!

We needed an overnight stop as we made our way to L.A. we came across this place. They were so family friendly (we have a 2 year old with us). The bedroom was big, the food was amazing, and they were all so hospitable like you really are spending the night at their house. It had the french charm from... More

We agreed that they had the best mattress that we have slept on in a long time. Our room was roomy with lots of space to stretch out and comfortable. Little things like turn down service with chocolates were a nice touch. The hosts and the staff were cordial and nice to visit with. There are two hot choices in... More

My husband and I were visiting our son during Thanksgiving and decided to explore a few towns on the way. We heard about this bed and breakfast from friends and San Luis Obispo was on our route. It was well worth the stop! Besides the town being so charming, this inn was just so welcoming and adorable. Our room was... More

An absolute jewel. The rooms are better than the pictures in the website and so is the B&B. The staff is wonderful and cannot say enough of their scrumptious breakfast (the quiche was to die for) and the social happy hour wine and home made appetizers. Thank you for giving travelers such a great place to stay.

We stayed at Petit Soleil during a brief trip to SLO, planned to avail ourselves of kayaking and hiking nearby. The property is lovely in everyday -- our room was comfortable and attractive, the breakfast outstanding, and - best of all - the staff was uniformly friendly, helpful and accessible. I look forward to staying there again.
