Petit Soleil, Bed and Breakfast
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 3, 2012

This is a quaint Bed and Breakfast, and perfect for our stay in SLO. It is very walkable to downtown, and nearby to great eateries. It offers a wonderful hot breakfast each morning. It's difficult to choose which meal to eat. It has a charming courtyard, and a delicious wine and appetizer offering each day at 5:00. We enjoyed our room, and would definately stay here again.

We really don't have anything bad to say about this hotel! It's absolutely wonderful. We recommend it to anyone. The staff is so friendly! The rooms are each uniquely decorated. Ours had a sunflower theme. They have complimentary wine, beer and appetizers in the evening. You sit in a cute courtyard and enjoy the home cooked food while they turn down your beds and place homemade truffles on your pillows. The hotel is a short distance from the downtown area. They have 4 bicycles they will loan you. We used then to bike into downtown for dinner. The next morning the has a buffet, coffee, and homemade quiche or waffles. They also have vegetarian and vegan options. Overall, an amazing b&b. Check it out if you're in SLO.

We took the train from Santa Barbara to celebrate our anniversary, and chose to stay at Petit Soleil. It was a perfect stay, for a short trip. We found champagne and truffles, and a note for us in our room when we arrived. Breakfast was amazing- two hot meal options, along with fruit and fresh baked goodies. We were able to borrow bicycles for a ride around the city, just a few minutes down to downtown.

We stayed for only 1 night, but would have happily stayed longer if time had allowed. We were welcomed with wine and appetizers served in a cute courtyard. Our king room was nicely decorated and very comfortable. Breakfast was delicious. The inn is within walking distance of downtown. We were fortunate to stay on a Thursday night when the town has a farmers' market and street entertainment. We found the staff to be friendly and helpful. We would stay here again.

Room Tip: Parking can be an issue. It can be a distance to carry your luggage.

We generally drive from N. California to the L.A. area several times a year to visit family -- and we always choose the coast route south of San Francisco. It's a longer trip than down I-5, but the stop in San Luis Obispo makes it a comfortable drive. We always stay at Petit Soleil. This little "French" inn is delightful. The rooms -- though a bit dark -- are comfortable and stylish. Our last stay was in a room with a huge metal sunburst over the bed. At night there is always turn-down service, complete with complimentary truffles (the cookie jar in the dining area is always full at night -- yum!). In the morning, Petit Soleil offers a tasty breakfast -- we almost always opt for the daily quiche, a house speciality. In the late afternoon, there is always a complementary selection of local wines. We often spend time reading or journal-writing in the lovely little patio area. In short, Petit Soleil is the perfect stopover after a long drive.

Room Tip: If you don't mind climbing stairs, you may find the upstairs rooms have more light.

We stayed only one night but it was very nice. Clean, great brealfast. As other have said, a bit noisy but not objectionable to me.

Room Tip: My choice, downstairs (due to the stairs and no elevator) but they all seem fine.

We have been staying at another hotel on our last three visits to SLO, but due to a recommendation by our son (who is grinding away at Cal Poly) we decided to stay at Petit Soleil on Monterey Street.

This was a great choice! Bedrooms are whimsical yet very relaxed. Breakfast is divine and the bicycles on hand to borrow were a delightful way to visit and explore the town. Monterey Street becomes very tranquil at night so we had a quiet and peaceful sleep for two nights. My wife is a bed snob, so get a smile and a sigh of happiness out of her is remarkable!

We want to thank the owners and the enchanting staff at Petit Soleil. See you soon!
