Reviewed 26 May 2013

We loved the history and beauty of this house and our room was immaculately clean, with all the amenities. Pat, the owner, was very nice, and made us feel welcome. She has done an excellent job of maintaining the integrity of this Craftsman home. We were very pleased with our accommodations and would happily return; the price was great considering we would have paid almost as much to stay in a chain hotel. We'd rather have the charm, the "family" feel and the history!

Room Tip: We stayed in the Catalina suite; it was a little small, but we didn't plan to hang out in the ro...

What a great place to stay in Long Beach! We had a rather large party that reserved the whole B&B for the first night and 4/5's of it for the second night. We also were on a very weird schedule, as we were working all weekend in Long Beach. The owner, Pat, was absolutely super in supporting our early-out-in-the-morning routine (on the road by 6:00am) with a nutritious and satisfying breakfast. I just feel she and her family went above and beyond the call of duty in making sure we were comfy and very well taken care of.

Honestly, this was my first B&B stay and did not know exactly what to expect, but I was delighted with the service, food, friendliness and spirit of the Beachrunners Inn.

Room Tip: Although I did not stay in the front bedroom, one person in the party said there was a bit of traffi...

The B&B is in a lovely neighborhood filled with gorgeous Craftsman-style homes. It was lovely to walk around. It was also very convenient for going further afield - we got to LAX in about 30 minutes. We walked to dinner all 4 nights we were there - Cafe Piccolo and Lola's are highly recommended. Breakfast was delicious and they accommodated my dietary preferences well and without complaint. The B&B is right on the corner of Broadway, which is fairly busy. The rooms had good windows, but you can hear the traffic and in the summer if you had the windows open, this might be an issue. The rooms that face south face Broadway. We had the Long Beach room, and it was small. There's no desk (although there's one downstairs in the common area) but the TV selection was very good. I would stay here again. The owner was very friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: A room that faces north would be the quietest.

I enjoyed staying here for two nights. As the other reviews mentioned, the B&B is clean and comfortable. Pat and Courtney own and operate the B&B, live on premises, provide a nice breakfast (much more than standard continental breakfasts, including custom omeletes), and gladly answered questions about visiting Long Beach. The vicinity is not the best part of town, but it is not dangerous, the house is well maintained indoors (they probably hired an interior decorator), and you are a short bus ride or drive from downtown. I would stay here again if I am in Long Beach!

This is a lovely bed and breakfast. Our room, the Long Beach room, was on the second floor with a distant view of the beach, which is about two blocks away. Although a bit small, it was very comfortable and clean. The breakfast was delicious. It is about a ten-minute drive to the marina and downtown area.

We stayed in the sunset room, which looks down the street directly to the ocean. Only a 7 minture drive to the cruise port or a 5min walk to bus to the cruise port. Parking was only 20$ for the entire week. Rooms are cozy but comes with full Cable Box/DVD/VCR and High Speed internet. The house is gorgoues and they make a awesome lil breakfast in the morning. As innkeeper myself I know the value of a good B&B and this place is top notch. Great DVD selection & large living room that is open for guest to hang out.

Room Tip: Sunset is a lttle smaller but has all the amenities of a good room.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Beachrunner. The room was clean & comfortable. The location is within walking distance of the beach. The hostess was very pleasant. The breakfast served was one of the best anyone could ask for. I highly recommend this place for anyone planning a visit to the Long Beach area.
