    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!"

    Great breakfast


    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.

    ... could have done the journey in a little over 39 hours and only 2,600 miles of driving. We took just a little longer than that and doubled the driving distance. It is such a good job the petrol is so cheap in the USA!

    So we have achieved what we set out to do, but we still have a few days left before catching our flight back to the UK from Los Angeles. Maybe we should actually just travel back overland as flying really will be cheating a little?


    The scenic part

    ... it was about 11.30 and still raining ..... So we had to scratch plans to explore the tide pool at JV Fitzgerald Marine Reserver at Point Lobos and we headed straight for McWay Falls in the hope the rain might have cleared enough for us to do a short hike. Today was the most scenic part of this southern drive, along the coast, the road like a ribbon along the edge of the cliffs. The houses built right - literally - on the ...

    ... a time.

    It was past 9:30pm when I finally arrived at my stop, Carlsbad Village, with only a few minutes delay, caused by getting stuck behind a slow freight train (they have those in America, too). Angie and her bright Yellow car (at first sight almost mistaken for a taxi), were waiting for me in front of the station and after swinging by the liquor store for some wine we were home in minutes. Since I hadn't seen here in seven years, we had some catching up to do!

    ... The beach front has a three mile boardwalk, where you can walk along, admire the views and do not even have to get the sand between your toes. There was a little craft market on at the seafront and we were told that there was going to be a big party in town that night. The Amgen Cycling Tour of California Stage 5 was due to start from Pismo Beach the following morning, so most of the cyclists, crew, marshals etc., were going to be ...

    ... to explore the grounds on our own and catch a bus back down. The house is another rich man's folly really, he wanted to bring some European grandeur over to the USA and collected a huge variety of stuff, statues, art, ceilings, church pews, furnishings and so on. Things from different cultures and different eras all in the same house. There were also unfinished things about the house as he eventually ran out of money and was unable to ...
