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 by it and its perfect location. We went in to get some information and were given a tour of the open rooms, and at that point decided that our next trip we would use this inn as our base of operations. The inn was once a small hotel called the Pink Palace, and was moved to a new foundation right on the bay. Apparently the funding at the time wasn’t sufficient and the inn didn’t open for years, under a new owner. Now it is a great place to stay. The first time we stayed in the Pink Palace room, which is on the top floor and has the biggest balcony. It is, however, one of the smallest rooms, and this April we stayed in the Benicia Bay suite which has the same view from the balcony and is much larger, with a two person Jacuzzi and a very pleasant sitting room, complete with a bar area. This is now our favorite room. Peggy has taken over as manager from Christina, and she is doing a fantastic job and made our stay very pleasant. We look forward to visiting again.
