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.

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

A wonderful place to stay in this quaint town. Located right on the bay, a second story common porch offers a lovely view. It is one block off the main street filled with lovely shops and restaurants. Our room, the Blue Lagoon Suite, was exceptionally clean and larger than expected. Beautiful bedding and well-appointed decor. Bathroom had separate tub and... More

We walked into the Shorelight Inn after a day of air travel and an afternoon in San Francisco and immediately felt relaxed and right at home! Our vacation included 5 days in the wine country and our last night was not planned so we decided on the spot to spend the last night of our vacation back in Benicia at... More
