Couldn't be better

This was my first stay at Beachrunners and after searching for a few years for a decent place to stay in Long Beach, I hit the jackpot. It was mellow, friendly, quiet, incredibly comfortable, and not-fussy. It's a wonderful place and I'll certainly be back.

Warm and comfortable

We were very happy with our stay! The owners treated us like family and were very helpful and accommodating. It was very easy and reasonable to use Uber to get around and there was always one nearby. We will definitely stay there again.

Home Again!

This place really felt like home, from the pleasant conversation to the very comfortable rooms. I loved that they had a fan that sucked out all of the hot air on the second floor. Quiet, never heard the door jingle when people came and went. We were able to walk ten minutes to the beach (I walk slow LOL!) I am vegan and the breakfast suited my needs perfectly! This place is a must see!!!!

Good for a budget

Decent bed and breakfast for the price. The staff was courteous but not as friendly and helpful as I've become accustomed to at other BnBs. Also, the rooms do not have A/C, I didn't see that anywhere prior to booking and was surprised upon check in, not bad at night but the rooms are definitely hot in the middle of the afternoon. Overall, if you're looking for a place to stay on a budget this place will suit your needs.

Pleasant hosts, good food

I enjoyed my stay, which was in late June. I went in knowing ahead of time there would be no air-conditioning, but the fans helped, and it was no uncomfortable. The food was delicious, and the hosts were very nice.

Cozy, comfortable, affordable in Long Beach

Stayed two nights during a vacation touring Southern California. Our hostess, Pat, and her staff, were excellent--friendly, very attentive, and breakfast was great, with a hot entree, and complete selection of breakfast choices.

Wonderful bed and breakfast in good neighborhood

I had a great time staying in Beachrunner's Inn in February 2017. The Hosts are very welcoming and friendly.. The house is eutifully furnished. My room was great. Everything is very clean. The breakfast was delicious. The Lobby, Dining room, living room and kitchen are free to use for all guests (6 rooms), so it was like staying in a private home. There is a free car park. The Inn is located in a very good neighborhood, within walking distance to the beach.

Extremely friendly and welcoming host family and excellent breakfast. Very spacious and clean house with nicely decorated rooms and free car park. Perfect to relax and feel at home. Also ideal for Business trips. Definitely to be recommended! Onsite Dining is possible for those who bring their own food and heat it in the microwave. Kitchen, Dining room, Living room and Lobby are comfortable and free to use for all guests.

B&B review

Beautiful home, clean, great breakfast. My only complaint would be the loud,noisy creeking bed and uncomfortable pillows.

Pleasant stay

We were at the Beachrunner for two nights. Room was small with a queen sized bed. BnB was convenient to beach, Long Beach downtown and Belmont Shore/Naples. Clean room and common area, good breakfast and pleasant owner.
