Our mini vacation at the Shorelight inn was much more than we had expected. Our room (5) has a balcony with a 180* views, and watching the sunset was very romantic! Ann's breakfasts were full of fresh fruit , English muffins, bagels , croissants and assorted sweet rolls, cereals and fresh juices as well as good coffee and teas. But... More

The room felt like being at home, wonderful views and close to great restaurants. Very cozy, considering a revisit. We wanted to stay longer, but our schedule didn't alow us to stay any longer. Parking would have been a problem if we discided to drive around and not get parking on a busy day.

The Inn is near the bay in a small town, which has its own charms. The owner/manager of the Inn is warm and helpful. No one is around during the late evening and overnight, instead you have to ring a buzzer to get through to them in emergencies. The suite was spacious, furnished with antiques and the like. The complimentary... More

Better than we expected as there is a large sitting room plus the bedroom and large bathroom. The space is beautiful. It is decorated in an authentically antique way but updated with modern amenities like the jacuzzi tub. The owners would extremely nice. The room is set with free snacks and cold water. The location is wonderful for walking along... More

This is the place to stay! The rooms are beautifully appointed with everything you need; WiFi, cable, coffee, fridge, microwave and a Jacuzzi tub! Breakfast was lovely and our visit with our hosts was delightful. I visit Benicia often so I plan on booking a different room each time until I've stayed in each one...then starting over. I can't imagine... More

Nestled in a real nice part of Benicia, right off First Street, Shorelight is very restful and clean. The rooms have seating areas, bedrooms and spacious bathrooms. This B&B could use some improvements: how about screens on the windows, portable AC units in the bedroom and fill the holes in the wall when you change the towel racks? It could... More

It was a nice view! The bathroom was clean. The room was nice, but the room was extremely hot when we came in. I opened up the window some more while we went to dinner. I tried to use the Thermostat in the bathroom. But it did not cool down, hot air was just blowing out. It cooled down in... More

The staff was friendly and helpful. We enjoyed the substantial continental breakfast, and being able to visit with the other guests. Wish we had more time to stay. (I think that covers it, but must provide 200 characters.)
