We have been wanting to stay here for a while an finally found a weekend to go. Stayed a Friday and Saturday night. Great stay. Rooms are very uniquely decorated. Breakfast is to die for. We ate there two mornings and kept saying how great it was. Good location for walking downtown or getting out to SLO sites.

For a person in Europe this would be very good condition, I have an issue with tile and grout and if it is not good then it should be upgraded, but that is just me. and maybe that is on their list. I arrived and had to wait for a parking place. The parking lot is shared with a popular... More

We spent one night at Petit Soleil, on our way to Big Sur. We were so glad we did! Stephanie greeted us warmly and gave us great suggestions for dinner, and we arrived right in time for wine tasting and delicious appetizers! The rooms were beautifully decorated, very clean and quiet. Breakfast was wonderful! We loved our brief stay and... More

Found this B&B on another travel website specializing in dog friendly hotels. The pictures were inviting and we were happy when they had availability. What a terrific treat! Service was wonderful, all of the staff and the owners were class A. We brought our very friendly small-medium sized dog and he proceeded to great everyone too. The food was fresh... More

The room was spacious, clean and very comfortable. The bathroom products were top quality (Occitane)! The breakfast selection was very good because you had to choose between 2 options and both options were delicious!

Really enjoyed our 3 day stay with Le Petit Soleil. Got great recommendations for a nearby hike, they were very willing and able to accommodate my food allergies for breakfast and 5pm appetizers. Lovely little courtyard to relax in. Cozy room, slight musty smell in the beginning, but it aired out with the windows open for a day. Would definitely... More

This B&B has personality. It's charming and quaint. The breakfast is amazing. The wine and appetizers are a nice touch. The staff and owners are awesome. Went on a girl friends weekend and worked out great. Location is walking distance from downtown, 10 minutes from the beaches and 30 minutes from wine country. Staff and owners are very helpful with... More

It has been awhile since my last visit, but I was pleased that this B&B continues to please me. Nothing much has changed since my last visit. Our room was nicely decorated and clean. Best of all is the breakfast they provide--great coffee, buffet style food and a hot breakfast choice (there are two choices). We were even asked if... More

This is a nice bed and breakfast. Our room (29) was nicely decorated and got lots of natural light. This room is on the top corner facing the street and just by the stairs so it was noisy at times but nothing that prevented us from sleeping all night. Beware if you have a bad back, the mattress is quite... More

Oh my goodness! What a wonderful, charming find! Small B&B within walking distance to fantastic historic downtown SLO. Yes, it is pricey, but includes fantastic appetizers and drinks in the evening and a delicious, healthy breakfast.
