On our road trip on the west coast we had 2 nights at this lovely B&B in long beach: perfect location (close to the beach as well as to the restaurants and bars), very nice, individual and comfortable room, very good breakfast and very kind hosts. We would definitely come again and can highly recommend this place!!!

Welcoming the Sunshine

We stayed two nights on our vacation. Had a wonderful stay in February, escaping the Cleveland OH cold weather for some sunshine. Nice weather when we were there. Lots of places within walking distance for and dining out or a stroll on the beach. House is located on a busy street corner, but out of the way enough, has beautiful private yard to relax. Great breakfast and all you could expect and more from the inn keepers.

Wonderful B&B

This was an adorable B&B. We were met with great service and a lovely room! It was in a great location, and we really enjoyed getting to know the other patrons during breakfast. Definitely recommend this B&B!

Hidden Gem

We stayed at the beachrunners inn on February 17, 2016 pre-cruise. Our host Pat was wonderful and provided us with a wealth of information regarding restaurants and shopping. We awoke to a beautiful breakfast and then went for a walk along the ocean which is only 2 blocks away. It is also only a 15 minute taxi ride to the cruise terminal. My only regret is that we could not stay longer, but we will certainly be back!!

Attractive property, wonderful host

Stayed four nights in advance of our cruise out of nearby San Pedro cruiseport. We were very pleased to find a beautiful historic house, nicely furnished with comfortable accomodations. Our host, Patricia, was friendly and informative about Long Beach attractions and dining options. Her breakfasts were delicious and well presented. Would stay here again and have already recommended others.,

Pleasant surprise

Beach runners B & B was our first experience. Our hostess Patricia was amazing! Her information about Long Beach & local area was excellent. I would not hesitate to return if we are in the area again!

Great Stay!!!

Location was an easy drive to many desired areas outside of Longbeach such as Hermosa, Rodondo, and Venice Beach. Nice neighborhood to walk around. Owner was very helpful with any questions!!

Beachrunners has long been a favorite of mine and one I always recommend to anyone going to So. Cal. It's close enough to the freeway to get you most anywhere but far enough away from the city so you feel like you can actually relax! It is more akin to being in a home which it is than anything else. Patricia and her daughter make you feel quite at easy and are able to point any number of things to do locally in Long Beach which is a great city in itself. If you love Craftsman homes as I do then you'll appreciate Beachrunners which is now 100 years old! Also the area of Carrol Park where it is located is loaded with California Bungalow and tons of Craftsman homes. (Take down Broadway for more. ) Beachrunners has a variety of rooms in varied sizes and each one is a gem.
