“Very Charming”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

We usually stay in 4 to 5 star hotels but wanted to try a B & B. We were not disappointed. The rooms were very well furnished and the staff was helpful. The breakfast was designed to make you want to stay and have another cup of coffee and the afternoon appetizers and wine were first rate. We would do this again.

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.
