We loved our stay and couldn't have been more comfortable. The location is perfect--in downtown yet overlooking the water. You can't pick a bad room in the house. Bring a good jacket so you can enjoy sitting on the porch which takes on the wind (in a good way) even in July. Manager Patti is delightful and so accommodating. We... More

Great place to stay when you are in the Vallejo area for work. You never have to worry about parking and its the perfect location for a quite sundowner on the deck. Unfortunately the internet was a bit slow and at times non existing, but the Manager said that they are getting people in to have a look at it.... More

1 stop location if visiting this area. 100m from main street coffee shops etc restaurants and set on the waters front. Absolutely loved our 3 days here. I was working up at Cal Maritime for 3 days and was perfect. It took me 12-15mins every day and never hit traffic on any occasion. The room was set out to have... More

First time I have stayed at this B&B. Great setting and views but the rooms are decorated from the 70's! Very out of sync with the setting and what I want in a B&B experience. I hope they didn't pay someone to come in and do decorate for them... if so, they should get there money back! The only thing... More

I visited Benicia for a work trip and was so happy I stayed at The Shorelight Inn. It was quiet, clean, and comfortable with friendly service. My room was large but cozy with a sitting area which included a kitchenette. There was also a large bathroom with a jacuzzi tub and plenty of closet/storage space. Outside there is a nice... More

If you love a room with a balcony on the water this place is for you. The rooms are charming and the setting is so peaceful. Benicia is a delightful low-key town. This is a great place to stay in the bay area. Don't miss a walk to the marina. And the service was exquisite. We will definitely go back.

We spent three nights in this lovely inn set directly on the water. Our suite was attractive and comfortable with a balcony looking out over the water. Breakfast was simple but delicious with optional waffles made by our warm and welcoming hostess.

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Shorelight Inn for our 3 year anniversary. After reading the wonderful reviews I decided to give this B&B a shot! This place surely lives up to everyone's comments. Pros: -Welcoming atmosphere -Conveniently located near a paved trail right along the water -Complimentary beverages in the lobby (2nd floor) -Our room, the Sunset Suite,... More

I recently stayed in the Pink Palace suite while I was visiting Benicia for my mother's wedding. The view from the spacious deck of Benicia bay is stunning! Sunsets and even a rare rainbow..so pretty. Peggy is a gracious hostess and the breakfast is delicious -- try one of her waffles with berries on top! Many friends from the wedding... More
