... Its beef, seasoned mostly with salt, pepper, lots of garlic and grilled over a wood or charcoal fire. The favorite way to serve this tasty meat is sliced on French or Sourdough bread. Bbq sauce or salsa is the condiment of choice. I had my first Tri Tip Sandwich over 10 years ago while visiting my friends Terry and Toni Clark and its something you just find out here in Cali.
... Years and years of chewed gum cover the walls of the whole alley. Just goes to show that anything can become a trend or a work of art ha! ha! We head back to the hotel for a couple of hours a the pool before sunset and an early evening as it has been a long day.
Next morning we head out to Pismo Beach. Pismo Beach is very much an old style Californian Beach, with fishing, several surf shops, coffee bars and a very laid ...

We arrived late the same day and spent the next two weeks enjoying the gracious hospitality of our hosts and long-time friends Marylou & Les.
It is never a dull moment when you spend time with the Goodwins and this visit was no exception.
Apart from the excellent home cooking and wine we found time to .........

... were sold out for the day, which kinda sucked, as I booked a room in San Luis Obispo, which was a 45 min drive away, thinking (hoping) we'd do the tour before continuing. But that was not to be, so we booked a tour for 9:45 the next morning so we would have to get up and go. We explored the gift shops and looked around so we wouldn't have to do that the next day, as after the tour, we had to head for Santa Barbara.

... They showed us how to put our fingers in the sea anemones and feel them curl around us. We spotted crab after crab and another little boy caught one. Then our kids felt they needed to catch one. No such luck, but it was an exciting game to try.
We retreated to watch the view of the ocean over a casual dinner outside, and then we enjoyed an in-room movie (an animated movie called "Escape from Planet Earth"). The perfect day.

Historical Traveler Reviews Petit Soleil, Bed and Breakfast San Luis Obispo
Worth a trip to SLO just to stay at Petit Soleil
A beautiful little inn just a short drive away from wine country that rivals the Napa Valley--but without the crowds. The innkeepers are gracious and welcoming, the atmosphere is charming and relaxing. and the breakfasts are truly wonderful.
We loved it!!
What fun!! A nice get-away home away from home. Breakfasts were delicious, wine in the patio was magnificent and the rooms were beautiful.Thank you, John and Diane, our two new friends.
One of the best of B & B's!
We recently stayed at Petit Soleil and found both the inn and the owners to be both gracious and charming. The wine hour and delicious breakfast provide opportunities to meet other guests from all over the globe. We hope to return soon!
A rave review for Petit Soleil
What a lovely, sophisticated respite from the world of chain motels. Our room was quite wonderful with an armoire and simple but chic furnishings...a European flair not common in the U.S. The breakfast and appetizers in the early evening were worthy of 5 stars. Can't wait to stay there again.
They should name it Itsy Bitsy Soleil!
Ugh. I wanted to like this hotel. The rooms are TINY! Plus this was supposed to be a romantic weekend away and the room reminded me of my little girl's room, it's all just a little too cutesy, which isn't too conducive to romance, if you know what I mean. The breakfasts are good, but I can't honestly say that is a good enough reason to ever stay in this hotel again.
"A Must Stay" B & B
We weren't sure what to expect when we reserved a room at Petit Soleil, but were wonderfully surprised. From our initial phone call until check out every detail was perfect. We felt like we were in Provence not in SLO. The beds are the BEST! The owners made sure our son had waffles for breakfast and everyone including the guests was friendly. The train at night adds a rural feeling. This B & B can't be beat!
Don't stay anywhere else!
My wife and I stayed here after learning about it on TripAdvisor. I was skeptical because of the low price but for places twice the cost, I've recieved much less luxury and especially much less personal attention.The place is brand spankin' new. The beds are super comfy. The breakfast is very tasty. The wine and hordourves were awesome!They have a really cozy patio area where you can just sit and enjoy your wine and conversate with guests or just read your paper. I'm telling you, wait til you sleep in their bed. Downtown is a few blocks away with some very good restaurants. Overall, for the price, this is a five-star establishment in my book! Well done, Petite Soleil!
By far the best B&B I have ever stayed in. Everything you need is close to the B&B, the breakfast and snack/wine are great. If you want clean - these rooms couldn't be any cleaner or more comfortable! The owners are so delightful!
A touch of Provence in the Heart of San Luis Obispo
"The detail, the colors, the HOT water, the comfortable beds, the colorful garden and the delicious morning breakfast.......ah, too many things to enjoy! We came upon a great find in a wonderful town. It seems that hospitality is the requisite for Petit Soleil. We will return often for a delightful sojourn!"
While the inn is not fancy or elegant, the rooms are very clean. The breakfast was fantastic and well worth the visit. The employees were very kind.
