Spending 3 nights in the Commandants Quarters. Comfy bed and amazing bathroom with an actual sauna. Short walk to sister property for breakfast (see picture) with amazing view. First street is just down the road for shopping. We like our privacy and this place was perfect!

This quaint little place is well located. Nice gardens out front, white picket fence, it presents itself well. My room was spacious, well decorated and quite comfortable. The bed was firm which I like and appointed with the proper quality sheets, pillows and covers. The staff is almost never there unless they know someone is checking in. Do not expect...

We stayed here recently when we could not find anywhere open in Napa on a Saturday night. Wonderful discoveries - both the Inn and Benicia! The room was spacious, clean, quiet, and nicely decorated. Ann was flexible with our late arrival and made sure music was playing in the room, and a light was on for us inside. Breakfast was...

Spent one night in the Casablanca suite. With its high ceilings, generous space, super comfortable bed, plush carpet, well kept furniture and well appointed bathroom, this could easily have been a thousand dollar / night room in Four Seasons or the Breakers. The hostess Ann was very helpful, made my late arrival work without a hiccup. Breakfast was decent and...

We went back and forth between staying here or at their sister property, The Shorelight Inn, a couple of blocks away. Since Shorelight doesn't have a/c in the rooms, we settled on the Inn at Benicia Bay. (Ironically, the weather was so mild, Shorelight would have been fine!) We stayed in Celia's Garden - a second floor room on the...

Very sweet little B&B. We loved our room and it was pretty quiet. Nice little outdoor area and porch. Very close to the Main Street and the water. Trip Advisor does say that it has a bar and restaurant which it does not. Also if we wanted breakfast we would have had to go to the other location so that...

We booked the Capt. Dillingham as it was the last room available this weekend. We were told it's the smallest room at the Inn but we were more than comfortable, had plenty of room and the bathroom was a nice size, plus the room has free wi-fi and the tv selections are great. The room also has a mini fridge...

We were looking to make reservations at their other property but they were booked up for a wedding. Ann was very helpful in offering a room at this property and was very friendly during the whole process. The room we were in was very nicely decorated and comfortable. They offered breakfast at their other property a short block walk to...

All in all a great stay! The inn keepers are all very nice and personable. The grounds are very clean, quiet and safe. We were in the room on a lower level, west side (forgot the name and it's not on the site anymore). It has a nice terrace, good AC and a fan. All in all a great stay,...

“Four rooms face the front yard - 2 on top, 2 on bottom. Top rooms - Ceilia's Garden & Casablanca would be the quietest. Any would be nice.”
