We were heading to Davis for a celebration with friends on Saturday and so made the long drive north from LA on Friday to be in the vicinity. No time for Napa Valley or Point Reyes on this trip but we wanted to add something to help justify the choice to drive instead of fly. Benicia and the Shorelight Inn... More

Christina is the sweetest lady and will make certain that your stay is most pleasant! She absolutely goes out of her way to make your visit special.

Breakfast was great- coffee, juice, fruit, cereal, waffles,... More

What makes the Shoreline Inn the best is Christina. It is her attention to detail in all of the clean, tasteful rooms. Christina is the one that greets you and goes out of her way to make your visit special. A well stocked refrig and bar are complimentary. Pour your own drinks....no charge! The Inn is on the water with... More

We stayed at Shorelight for 5 nights while visiting Benicia in July, 2013. Christina could not have been a nicer hostess. The Inn was a wonderful find! Clean, quiet and well maintained. Do be aware that as a B&B there is no elevator so a room on the upper floor means lugging the suitcases up multiple flights of stairs. No... More

So in the past month me and my friend have stayed here over two weekends. The hospitality is first rate, Christina is the perfect host. The refrigerator is well stocked with water,... More

Have stayed here many times and never fails to disappoint. GORGEOUS suites (much larger than hotel room), all uniquely and beautifully decorated. GREAT location...on the water, downtown Benicia. Adore the innsdeepers....so kind and service oriented. Will be back!!

Overall we felt welcomed by the hosts. They had great wine and snacks when we came in. The rooms are very spacious. We loved the jacuzzi. I'd recommend doors on the bathroom, but other than that this is top-notch. The location is awesome as well. You can go for a walk right on the shore to start your day.

I had high hopes for the Shorelight Inn. We have been searching for a “home away from home” where we could stay while visiting our son who is living at a nearby college. I knew something was wrong when I received a voice mail from the manager, Lauren, around 3 pm asking me to confirm what time I was checking... More
