"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. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"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. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Beautiful house and breakfast every morning was wonderful. The only draw back was there was no AC in the room.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"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. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
What can I say? If you're looking for a B&B in Long Beach, this is definitely the place to go! Conveniently located, lovely rooms, fantastic service, and Pat was awesome. I couldn't have asked for a better experience.Genuine Expedia guest review
My wife and I had early meetings, so it was easier to stay than fight traffic. The home is wonderful, and Pat was very welcoming. We highly recommend Beachrunners!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"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. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"quaint and very beautiful"
Beautiful little place, very nice woman in charge. Don't miss that it is a "bed and breakfast". Small rooms in a large house. Shared kitchen, and living room and thin walls. Perfect location, however, and immaculate. Would stay again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice Bed & Breakfast"
Great staff and good food. Stayed 5 nights and everyday breakfast was great. Be sure and check your windows as we arrived late a night and the road noise was pretty loud. After some investigation i found the top window of the the double hung was open at the top.Genuine Expedia guest review
"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. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Would definitely stay there again. Staff was very friendlyGenuine Expedia guest review
This is a great little B&B .. the only downside is that the rooms on Broadway have to listen to the automated bus message since the Beachrunner is located on a bus stop.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A wonderful B&B close to the beach in Long Beach"
I really enjoyed my week's stay at the Beachrunner's Inn. Pat, the innkeeper, was very kind, helpful, and served an awesome breakfast each morning. The Inn was very quiet, peaceful, and immaculate and I truly had a relaxing week. I would return there to stay in a flash!Genuine Expedia guest review
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. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Lovely B and B in Long Beach"
Pat was wonderful. She was welcoming and helpful;she created delicious breakfasts. Also, the location of Beachrunners is great--a short walk to the beach. The room was pleasant and very clean. I will certainly stay again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Long Beach Beachrunners"
Beachrunners is conveniently located two blocks from Pacific Ocean swimming. A good, family-owned pizza place is a block away. City bus transportation is available nearby with multiple routes including going downtown Long Beach. Bus transportation connects with the train to Los Angeles frequently arriving and departing until late evening. Excursions […] to Catalina Island depart from downtown Long Beach. Now--about the hotel. It is a family-run bed and breakfast in a home which just turned one hundred years old. The daily hot breakfast is excellent iincluding hot foods and fruit and cereal as well as coffee and hot tea. Tourist information is available on all the important things to visit in the area. A daily newspaper from Long Beach and Los Angeles is on the coffee table in the living room if you prefer your news hard copy. Internet access is available as well. A nice laundromat is a ten-minute walk away. Pat will answer all your questions. Highly recommend. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Room was a little small. Parking was a little weird. The owners were very nice. Excellent breakfasts! We would definitely stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Lovely little B&B"
Pat and Courtney were so sweet! I wasn't terribly awake when I arrived at their inn and as a result they had to explain to me how to work the front door lock twice, but thankfully they were tremendously patient. My room was beautiful and clean, and they made a lovely omelet for me on Wednesday morning. I had a lovely time walking to the beach near the […] inn and just relaxing for a day before I had to leave Long Beach. I highly recommend this bed and breakfast, the owners are great people. There was a bit of traffic that was loud before I shut the windows, but they also provided a complimentary eye mask and earplugs for me, so I couldn't complain~ Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
After reading the other reviews on Beach Runners on hotels.com it sounded like a great place. We were very let down by our four night stay there. We arrived on wendsday morning and no one was there to let us in to the B&B . not a huge deal so we walked down to the beach for a while. when we arrived back at the B&B we were greeted by Pam. which by all […] the other reviews you would have expected her to be a ray of sunshine. we experienced quite the opposite. Pam was very cold to us, almost seemed more hospitable to the other guests. And when staying at a B&B the last thing you want is to be uncomfortable around the inkeeper. She gave us our tour and showed us our room. we asked twice if the hot tub was in working order and she assured us it was. Well at 8 o'clock that night I uncover the hot tub to find cold rust colored water. I informed Pam of this and even offered to drain and refill the hot tub for her before the weekend arrived. She said she thank you but she would take care of it. Well 2 days later it was finally hot (too hot) and the water was still filthy. She was made aware of a problem in her "business" and ignored it. We made the best of the rest of the trip but needless to say will not be returning. I write this review not to complain but to warn other travelers. cheers and safe travels.

"great bed and breakfast, clean, cute, near beach!"
i love this Bed and Breakfast and will only stay here when i go to Long Beach. Pat is a great hostess, the rooms are cute and clean and the breakfast is yummy (always something warm with a lot of other choices and the fruit bowl is my favorite). waterbottles in the room and more for a small fee if you need it. conveniently located 3 blocks from the […] beach and a few restaurants within walking distance as well. the street can be noisey but Pat provides ear plugs (which i don't actually need). LOVE IT HERE! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Homey B&B near the beach"
Friendly, family owned B&B in a decent neighborhood within walking distance to grocery, ect. We were presented with a gluten-free and tasty cupcake for our anniversary! Ask about where to park, as this is a little tricky. They have an area, but it's through an ally; street parking is brutal!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Pleasant stay, will come back again"
I stayed here in 2011 after a hectic conference in LA, I came back again in 2013, after similar conference. The place is very clean, confortable, the atmosphere warm and convivial. The hostess makes an excellent breakfast. Ask for a room away from E. Broadway street, if possible. There are some good places to eat nearby. The beach is a couple of blocks […] away. I will definitely come back again Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Like a home away from home on the Belmont Shore!"
I lived in Long Beach, CA in 1991, and then again from 1994-1998. I really loved my time on the Belmont Shore, but I have to admit that the area is even nicer today than it was 15 years ago! That said, I booked the Beachrunners' Inn for my wife and I to spend a night near friends before heading to points south for a wedding. We were greeted at the door […] by Pat, the lovely owner, and she made us feel immediately at home! Our 24 hours on the Belmont Shore ended up being a highlight of our 4-day trip to Southern California! We enjoyed a Gondola ride at sunset in Alamitos Bay, met friends for a drink at the Belmont Brewing Company, and enjoyed the best breakfast I've had in 2013 in the comfy dining room at the Beachrunners' Inn! Pat made this amazing "baked french toast" that I should have gotten the recipe for! And we enjoyed relaxing after a long beach walk in the backyard hot tub. What a perfect start to our vacation!

"Great one night stay"
Due to late plane and slow car rental agency, I arrived at 11 PM. Owner was wonderfully welcoming. Breakfast was a plentiful offering of many choices and cooked food was prepared well. Some B&B's offer too much food, and it is hard to resist and then you feel too full. This one was just right and quite healthy. My room (I think it was South Beach) was […] small and would have been cramped feeling if I had not been alone. Lovely home and very nice owners made me wish I was staying longer. In a great neighborhood also! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Couple from Las Vegas"
This was our first stay at a B&B. We were always hesitant staying at a B&B because some of the online photos were not inviting. My husband did his research and felt good about the Beachrunner Inn. First impression was great because when I called to see about checking in early, around noon, Pat the innkeeper said to come on.....the Inn is a historic […] mark in the community and is well cared for. Our room was cozy and very very comfortable. The Inn felt like it was your home away from home. Breakfast was very good and being it was our first B&B, eating at the main table was not bad, met some very nice people. The beach was within walking distance and many other shops on Broadway. Polly's Pies at 3490 Atlantic Blvd is the place for comfort food and great pies. The Farmer's Market downtown was cool, we had a bacon wrapped hot link, so goood! Staying at the Beachrunner Inn was a great B&B experience and a great way to spend our 10th anniversary. Pat has set some high standards for our next B&B experience. Thank you to the Beachrunner Inn family. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"A+ for the Beachrunners' Inn family"
A very welcoming family runs this B&B. They serve wonderful breakfast, coffee, juice, and enjoyable conversation around the breakfast table. Comfortable, clean rooms with roomy, hot shower. Small room, but excellent use of space for room amenities. Larger rooms are available. We did not spend a lot of time in the room so it was fine. Enjoyed the courtyard […] area a great deal. It was under some remodeling but we worked around it. Looking forward to next visit and seeing the completed renovations. The location is centrally located to many places to visit. Only 3 blocks from the beach and shuttle bus near by to take you to shopping areas. A+ for the Beachrunners' Inn B&B. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Close to the beach"
The B&B was very comfortable and clean. It is about 3 blocks away from a public entrance to the beach and even it is located on a semi-busy street, the noise level was minimal. The breakfast we has in the morning was good and the owner was very friendly.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"My new home in Long Beach."
Very relaxing atmosphere. Loved the breakfast and the proprietors were warm and friendly.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Not a destination, but a wonderful place to stay."
We were a little doubtful about booking a room at Beachrunner's, due a few reviews we'd read which complained about small rooms. We booked the Laguna Beach room and couldn't have been happier with it or the inn. The bed, my primary concern wherever I stay, was the most comfortable king I think I've ever slept on. The room itself was pleasantly and adequately […] furnished and the television was equipped with more channels than I could scroll through as I relaxed after a long day running about town. The bathroom more than adequate to our needs: plenty of huge towels, an abundance of very hot water, and robes which we never bothered to wear. The house is quite nice, including the dining room where we had a large choice of items, including an egg dish each morning. (The owner even expressed her concern that I hadn't finished my eggs our last morning, but that was only because I like my scrambled eggs very dry. The plentiful bacon more than made up for that.) As the owner told us, this is not a "destination" bed and breakfast but one for those who plan to spend their days and nights exploring the community. And for that, you couldn't find a better location, only blocks off the beach and halfway between downtown and the trendy Belmont Shore area of 2nd St. We will return when we re-visit LB.

First time expericne in a B&B facility. Very courteous people and clean rooms; however, it was a bit more expensive than what I would have paid for this kind of a facilityGenuine Expedia guest review

"FELT JUST LIKE WE WERE GUESTS"
This beautiful 1900's home's family/staff and atmosphere made us feel just as if we were anticipated and welcomed visiting guests. Our room was comfortable, the proprietor was extremely helpful and knowledgeable about the Inn's history, as well as that of the surrounding neighborhood. The breakfasts were delicious, and the dining table talk enjoyable. […] The Inn provides parking in the back, off the street, even for motorcycles. Across the street is an equally delightful antique shop which has made it its mission to minister to the less fortunate. A wonderful place to stay if you are looking for a calm, quiet retreat.
