What a gem!

I adored staying at the Beachrunners Inn, the owners and staff were very friendly and accomodating. The breakfast was substantial and very tasty and my room was adorable. I loved the antiques in the room and the common areas, the owners take great care to make it comfortable and inviting. Plus the location is awesome, just a short walk to the beach, museums and shops. I will plan to go back on my next trip to Southern California and will recommend to friends!

Just ok

The stay was OK, but definately nothing special. The Inn is tired and needs some sprucing up. They don't take any extra time for breakfast, just jars of PB&J and bread and a dry egg mcmuffin in a warmer.

A Brief Visit to Long Beach

We spent two nights in this lovely B&B. It is conveniently located and the Pat and Courtney were friendly and helpful. We look forward to our next stay. Nan and Larry Andersson

Great B&B

Found a gem in Long Beach. Hosts were welcoming and very accommodating. Hot breakfasts were good. Will keep this in mind for future trips to LB.

Best value in Long Beach

This B&B is outside of the downtown area, but still a great location! Walk to the beach, art museum, library, coffee shop, and cool vintage shopping. Also right on a bus line, so easy to get anywhere, including the airport. The building itself is a real gem, with arts & crafts architecture and furnishings. Owner and staff provide great service. The price is very reasonable, making this the best value in Long Beach!

Beachrunners is very conveniently located near Retro Row Long Beach. It’s a lovely craftsman dwelling. The service is excellent. The internet was a bit dodgy. The food is ok but not as one usually finds in a B&B for this price.

Great location in Retro Row Long Beach CA. Close to the beach, dinning and a great neighborhood for walking.

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!!!!
