We just stayed at the Shorelight Inn in Benicia CA, this was an awesome B&B. We stayed in the Bay View Suite, the views from the room and deck were of the Bay and the Carquinez Bridge. The sunset was spectacular, the breakfast was great, and the Inn Keeper (Peg) was extremely friendly and helpful. We will definitely return and... More

There is so much good about this place, it's hard to know where to start. My fiancé and I, on a long car trip from Los Angeles to Seattle, spent a night here and were dazed by how amazing it was. We have already vowed to come back, as we dawdled at breakfast trying to drag every second of enjoyment... More

The Shorelight Inn is a gem of a place in the cute little town of Benicia. We stayed in the Sunset Suite. It was very clean, nicely decorated and a good sized suite. The Jacuzzi tub in the bedroom was a nice touch. Peg, the manager/hostess, was especially warm and accommodating. She made sure everything was just right for us.... More

Regarding the prior post from my stay at the lovely Shorelight Inn, I did take this up with the manager, Peg. It turns out that the entrance to the B&B is on the 2nd level, which does have a bar area (where I assumed breakfast would be served). However, there is also a ground floor level that is used for...

People look at us funny when we say we are vacationing in Benicia, but this is a great little town, and the Shorelight Inn is our favorite place to stay. We used to stay on the far side of the interstate, a long walk from downtown. On one of our explorations we came across the Shorelight Inn, and were intrigued... More

I stayed at the Shorelight Inn for work in Benicia. Instead of commuting or staying at a chain (there is a Holiday Inn express), I stayed here. The TripAdvisor reviews do not lie, it is the best place in town. The owner and the other staff are just fantastic. The location cannot be beat. You can walk to all the... More

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. I loved that we were welcomed with soft drinks, water or wine- anytime!! The complimentary drinks are a plus when you are a thirsty traveler. Breakfast was great- coffee, juice, fruit, cereal, waffles,... More

I stayed here with two girlfriends. We found our room to be beautifully appointed and very clean. The Innkeeper was attentive and there to meet our every need. We found breakfast to be wonderful...nice variety and very satisfying for a help yourself breakfast, nicer than typical continental breakfasts. Our favorite part of our stay was the fabulous deck. We spent... 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
