Pros: Close to the beach, friendly owner, very convenient and wonderful value for the price.
Location: It's easy to get to the aquarium, the Queen Mary and Scorpion, pier, etc. There are lots of restaurants along broadway.
Wonderful, small B&B 5 minutes from the beach. The breakfast is great (fresh fruit, yogurt, toast, oatmeal, hot eggs), help yourself style. The rooms are nicely decorated and unique, and the common areas are very nice as well. There is a small fridge with drinks and a snack basket.

First time in LA!

Posted Oct 31, 2014
We arrived in LA at 7.30pm, and had no troubles finding this little gem. We checked in around 9pm with no hassle. Very friendly staff always smiling and making the most amazing breakfasts every morning! Fresh fruit available at all times, a complementary snack box for any and all guests, and all they ask is for $1 for each fizzy drink from the fridge. Very comfortable bed and everything you could need provided for you with a smile!! Would definatly stay here again!!!! Loved it.

Beautiful historic home close to the beach

Posted Sep 3, 2014
Pros: Close to the beach. Very clean and inviting. Charming get-away.
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

Posted Aug 13, 2014 on Hotels.com
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!

Posted Jul 31, 2014 on Hotels.com
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.

Very Quaint

Beautiful house and breakfast every morning was wonderful. The only draw back was there was no AC in the room.

Loud, hot nights

Posted Jul 24, 2014 on Hotels.com
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.
