Google maps does not provide GIS functions to select the coordinates inside a polygon. You could do using the spatial extension ( data type GEOMETRY) for mysql .. and for this you can go into that .. for mysql doc.

A simple way to select locations (points) in google maps is to use the extreme values of the coordinates of the polygon points to get the equivalent to the coordinates of the rectangle that contains the polygon vertices and then perform a select

  select location  
  from my_table 
  where location_lat >= minLat_polygon
  AND location_lat  <=  maxLat_poligon
  AND location_lng  <=  maxLng_polygon
  AND location_lng  >=  minLng_polygon
