"Restful and convenient stay"
I needed a place to stay in Long Beach that would be close to where my family lived and be convenient for entertaining my self with local sightseeing and activities. Beachrunners has a great location so one can walk to attractions, restaurants and a farmers market that happens twice a week, if I read correctly. Long Beach is parking-scarce to parking-difficult and is stressful for me wherever I visit. Beachrunners has parking spaces specifically for their guests. That said, drive a small to medium size car as spaces are tight for any larger vehicles to share the room. I am eating vegan and Beachrunners was willing and able to accommodate me. I enjoyed a vegan hot entree each morning as well as access to whole grain cereals, fresh fruit, juice, coffee and non-dairy 'milk'. My fellow diners eating animal products had very tasty meals as well; they told me so. I could have stayed in a motel for somewhat less money, but my savings would have been offset by more driving, more money spent on meals, less convenience and less opportunity to socialize and to get my walking in. B&Bs are such a pleasant and personal option. I will stay with Beachrunners again next time I'm going to Long Beach.

"Great Host"
Everything was great except for the room temperature (no AC). Pat was a great host and the overall experience was good. If you opened the window the room temp was good except for the street noise. I would still recommend this bed and breakfast.

"Classic Long Beach B&B"
Local B&B in a 1915 vintage home. Very comfortable room would be tight for two. Since I was on a business trip and up early - out late, it was perfect. In an area of very tight parking, they have reserved spaces located conveniently nearby. The owner (Pat) was a delight. The only negative - located on a busy street; however, the room came with both earplugs and sleep mask should one have trouble falling asleep. Was a very nice touch and appreciated. Would stay there again.

"Beautiful place and easy walking to beach"
This is a B&B, and the only reason I don't give it a 5.0 is because the room has no AC. This is a restored 102 year old home. It is only a few blocks from the beach and Pat, the owner, was as nice as she could be. Rooms are clean, towels and even plush robes are awesome. Our particular room "Long Beach", is small, only room for a bed and TV. So with a bad back, it was a bit troublesome for me, but not for my wife. :-) Still I would stay here again as long as it is not hot out.

"Another home away from home"
Had to go to Long Beach with my daughter so she could check out CSULB, and although I had grown up in the area, it has changed so much, it was a different city. Going from the Amtrak station to the B&B was a bit scary, but once I entered the doors, I felt like I was at home. Pat treats everyone like they're extended family members, and that's nicer than a regular hotel where you're Room #. The only downsides are that since this B&B is over 100 years old, there is no air-conditioning, but you do have windows that open, and if you're not used to noise, Broadway and Kennebec are VERY busy streets. Overall, though, these are so minor.

"Beachrunner's Inn-yes, morning run on beach"
Great getaway to Long Beach. Convenient to beach and a short bike ride, walk or bus trip downtown. Comfortable and offered a nice sitting patio area in the back. The bed was VERY comfortable - just for that, would stay again. Appreciated the Wi-Fi for morning work. Pat and staff are friendly. Ultimately the question is, would I stay again? Yes. The B&B is on a busier street. Request room away from road to be on the quiet side.

My wife and I made the short trip from Los Angeles to stay at this place for the first time. We rode our bicycles down the LA River Path; when we showed up exhausted, the staff let us wheel our bikes into the back yard right away. The hosts were amazing, and we especially loved the hot tub! The location is also great, just next to Bixby Park and plenty of good bars and restaurants. I will definitely stay here again next time we're in town.

"A Charming Home Away from Home"
I can't say enough good things about the Beachrunners' Inn. The hostess/owner, Pat, is as friendly and gracious as they come and her breakfasts are delicious. They include a cup of fresh fruit, which was my favorite part. The Inn itself is charming and evokes a pristeen nostalgia while kept immaculately clean. The location is just three blocks from the ocean and one block from a park that runs to the beach -- a very nice area of Long Beach. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will, no doubt, be returning.

Beachrunner's was the perfect place to stay and have a quiet retreat away from the hustle and bustle I needed to attend to at the convention center. While its not walking distance to the convention center like some other big hotels, it was only a 6.00 ride on Uber. Pat was a gracious and warm hostess and I really enjoyed our conversations. I'll definitely be back when I'm in Long Beach.

"Beautiful historic home close to the beach"
We enjoyed our stay at the Beachrunner's Inn B&B. Pat was very accommodating and our room was immaculate. The room was small but well designed to maximize space. There is no air-conditioning and it became somewhat humid when the shower was used with the only ventilation being windows that could be viewed from the adjacent apartment/condos. Breakfast was much more than a traditional continental breakfast with fresh fruit and lots of choices. We loved the fact that it is a short distance from the beach and we could store our bikes i the back garden then ride our bikes to the beach bike path. We will definitely return but will try the room with the king size bed next time!

"Long Beach Business Trip"
I had reserved a room for two nights, paid in advance. Travel disruptions prevented me from arriving the first night, but I did arrive the next day. On the afternoon of the second day, I attempted to check in but nobody was there and the establishment was locked and appeared to be closed. I called the office number and left a message, then waited for an hour for either a call back or the appearance of anyone else inside the building. I was forced to locate alternative lodging for the second night. The next day, I received a call back with an apology, which i appreciated but it was too late to correct the situation. I am out for the cost of two nights, since they were paid in advance. Being charged for the first night is understandable--my travel disruption is not the fault of the establishment, but I should be reimbursed for the second night since I was there but they were not. I await the reimbursement.

"Misleading and rude staff!"
No where on the hotels.com description does it say this is a bed and breakfast! The rooms are TINY and I booked 4 people to stay here. We were turned away by the staff when we arrived because she said four people could not fit in the tiny rooms and another room wasn't available. She also said she has been having trouble with hotels.com allowing customers to book more than two people per room. No more than 2 people can stay in a room according to the staff. We were forced to cancel our reservation upon arrival and the staff would not refund our full amount due to "policy" even though we aren't the only ones this has happened to. I'm am extremely disappointed with hotels.com in addition to Beachrunners Inn. There should be a description somewhere saying this is a B&B and no more than 2 people can stay in one room. I will not be using hotels.com again.

"Loud, hot nights"
Our first night we had a tiny "queen" bed that was barely big enough for both of us. There is no a/c (typical for California) and only one slightly ok ceiling fan that did not provide much for air movement. We slept with the two windows open. I had ear plugs in the whole night but still was awoke several times during the night. My boyfriend is mostly deaf and can sleep through almost anything but he woke up constantly and even woke up in a fright at one point because a car almost crashed on the street next to us. Now, to clarify, the adjacent street is Broadway. By adjacent I mean there is a side walk literally right outside the house and you are literally only a few feet from the street. That means there are cars whizzing past all night long and people walking on the sidewalk (yelling at each other) all night long. We stayed in the Sunset View room. If you can stay at any of the rooms stay down stairs. They are all on the opposite side of the house and are probably much quieter. If it hadn't been for the fact that we couldn't sleep this wouldn't be a bad place to stay. It is cute and has a nice little outside area where you can smoke or hang out. But this is also right next to Broadway and a shady apartment building, where people will walk by with their laundry and stare at you. I was excited because it was my first B&B but I will know better next time and only stay at a B&B when it is secluded.

"Day of Rest"
The Beachrunners Inn was like being at home in our living room. We were very warmly welcomed into their home. We were exhausted from our travels and we just ended up vegging on their living room couch, ordered a pizza for delivery and watched a move from their DVD collection. The next morning there was a Wonderful Breakfast spread and eggs made any way you liked them. The food and hospitality were wonderful. If I have to give any negative, it was how very warm it is in the upstairs bedrooms, there is no air conditioning and the street noise is very loud. We were so exhausted that we fell right to sleep and the bed was very comfortable. We do, recommend this B&B if you don't mind no air conditioning in the summer.

"One night at a time."
We spent one evening there enroute to another. Top notch breakfast and friendly staff. The decor was very pleasant to look around the establishment. We stayed in the smallest room in the place. The full size bed was adequate for the two of us. Not the size of room you would get at a chain hotel but a lot more character. The one major drawback is the rooms temperature is controlled by having the windows open and fans on. Not so bad this time of year. We were glad it was not any warmer. All and all good experience, just have to remember B&B are more about charm than the extras from a chain hotel. Your choice.

"Awesome B&B!!"
Our experience began with a nice surprise upon arrival. Our flight arrived very early in the morning and we arrived at the B&B at 9AM. Our hopes were to store our bags and head to a local restaurant until a room was ready. We were really surprised when Pat told us she had a room ready for us and we could check in early. The B&B is beautiful and our room was very comfortable. The staff was more than helpful...they really treated us like family. We were only a few blocks from a very large and clean beach. Shopping and dining were within walking distance. The next day when we asked if we could leave our bags until 4 because the cruise send a notice that they were delayed in boarding. Pat let us stay in the B&B until we needed to leave. We checked out of the room on time but enjoyed the rest of the B&B for another 5 hours. I can't say enough great things about Pat and this B&B. I plan to return to Long Beach and WILL stay here again.
