Cozy, comfortable, affordable in Long Beach

4.8 on March 10, 2017

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.


Great location, and friendly staff and guests!

This is the second time we've stayed at Beachrunners Inn, and it was as enjoyable as our first. The rooms are good-sized, considering each has its own en suite bathroom. Breakfast was good and the availability of fresh fruit and snacks was welcome. We enjoyed a bottle of wine in the backyard in the evening beneath a canopy of shade and that was very nice, also. The location is great to walk to the cliff or the beach for a stroll in the evening, or a run in the morning. The value for money is very good. We'll stay here again when we're in the area, and can recommend it to anyone. (There is free parking, also!)


Best place to stay in Long Beach

4.8 on June 28, 2016

My husband and I stayed 5 nights at this wonderful home. The location can't be beat. We were able to walk to the beach, the "Pirate Invasion", church, 2nd street, restaurants, shops, etc... , little need for a car. Owner, Patricia made us feel very welcome and cooked awesome breakfasts. Room was very clean and comfortable although if the weather were to get hot there is no air conditioning, a fan in the window was comfortable enough for us. I will definitely stay here again! Sure beats a generic hotel.


Homey, Comfortable, welcoming, great breakfasts

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

4.0 on March 17, 2016

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.
