Petit Soleil, Bed and Breakfast
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 4, 2013

We stayed here for just one night on our way from L.A to San Francisco and came across Petit Soleil on chance.
With the warmest of welcome and the hugest of smiles we were shown to our French room which was just wonderful. For those who take life a little too seriously then think again about staying here but if you don't mind a little bit of french style cosy kitsch in your life, then this may be the B&B for you.
Quality has not been overlooked for theme. The shower was AMAZING, the toiletries L'Occitane, the bed was incredibly comfortable and the bath robes were the finest I've ever I've seen. Excellent WiFi and a decent TV were modern touches in what otherwise felt very much like a French country farmhouse room.
Last, but not least, HAVE BREAKFAST! There are the usual cereals, croissants, fruit etc but they also serve 2 'specials' a day which are home cooked from scratch. We had nutella baked homemade French toast. And yes. It was as good as it sounds.
A marvellous and happy B&B run by true Francophiles that know how to make guests happy.

Nice 10 minute walk to main area of downtown. Really friendly service. Great wine and appetizers. I would honestly have preferred the more informal approach most bnbs have with help yourself vs being served because it allows you to talk to other guests but it was nice. Breakfast was lovely. The rooms were nice, clean, and the soaps etc were in unique bottles. I am rating this as more of a 4 star experience because of the loud trash truck at 5:30 am on a Sunday morning and I think it is about 40$ overpriced. We payed 219 plus tax for a room on a Saturday night. If it was a little cheaper 5 all the way.

We have stayed at this hotel 3+ times and LOVE, LOVE it! The staff is fantastic, the food is great and the rooms are decorated very shabby chic! Very tastefully decorated and clean. Their turndown service is also much appreciated!

The hotel is a great location to downtown SLO and you can walk (or ride one of the hote's FREE cruiser bikes!). This hotel helped us fall in love with San Luis Obispo. Also, every single time the hotel has recommended a place to eat or shop, it has been worth it!

As others have noted, this is a cute little hotel decorated in a French country style. We stayed there mid-week in a downstairs room called the Chanticleer. The room was nicely decorated with roosters as the theme, and had a comfortable king size bed, fair size bathroom with tub and shower, and a 24"-26" size flat panel tv located inside the amoire. We genuinely enjoyed the CD music player playing French and Parisian themed music which added to the overall experience. We didn't experience any overt noise problems which some reviewers have alluded to, and slept restfully in our unit, albeit with the windows closed.

The breakfast room is nicely decorated in a French country style and offers about six tables, with another five in an adjacent outdoor courtyard with fountain. Once again, they have French music playing during the breakfast which adds to the ambience of the hotel. We had the French toast which were good sized and quite tasty, All the while, the staff was very friendly and helpful. All in all, we recommend this hotel for its charm, value, and friendly service.

This B& B was not up to expectations set by its website. Room was hot and stuffy. Commode kept running. Room did not overlook courtyard. Fruit for breakfast was not well cut or presented. However, staff and owners were very cordial. Overall, a bit too much like camping out.

This is a lovely little hotel near the centre of town, and a great place to stop if you are driving the coast road as we were. The staff are very friendly and helpful, and the whole place is very tastefully decorated in a French style. The breakfast was exceptionally good and they also lay on wine and snacks each evening in the courtyard.

My sisters and I drove from San Francisco to visit SLO and decided on Petit Soleil because of it's affordability and proximity to downtown San Luis Obispo. Check-in was quick and easy! We booked the queen room with trundle bed that accommodated the three of us perfectly. The room was clean, quiet, and very, very comfortable. The breakfast was delicious and the staff was friendly. We loved our stay and will be back.
