Great Location and very nice host! I was there for 1 night and simply loved the house and cleanliness, the owner even accommodated my request to pick the key early as I was going to Catalina Island for the day.

Quaint B&B close to the beachPosted Jul 9, 2016
The owners were so hospitable and made us feel welcome. The B&B is the cutest little place I have stayed and I highly recommend. The breakfast was awesome too! This place is definitely a gem.

Welcoming and convenient.Posted Jul 1, 2016
The owner and operator Pat is very kind and welcoming. The place is very clean and beautiful as it is a Victorian style house. Pat serves a nice cooked breakfast each morning which is a definite plus. Since I live in a fairly quiet neighborhood, I had to get used to the usual noises from the street and neighboring apartment. But this is not a main detractor.

Absolutely charming, friendly B&B near beach!Posted May 26, 2016
Pros: The Beachrunner is a charming 100 year old craftsman style home. Pat, the owner, is delightful, and makes an excellent breakfast every morning!
Cons: No suggestions- the Catalina Room I stayed in was conveniently located on the first floor, but is small- it was fine for a solo traveler.
Location: Three blocks from the beach, and centrally located 5 minutes from the Queen Mary, downtown shopping, and 2nd Ave shops and restaurants.
This was my first visit to Long Beach and I was interested in being near the beach, and reasonably close to Cal State Long Beach. This was a perfect choice, as I also wanted to get to know the neighborhoods and local vibe; my daughter and I were apartment hunting for her for graduate school. This location is excellent for running or walking on the beach, visiting nearby cafes and restaurants, and has easy access to the college as well as other shopping and site-seeing destinations. I spent three nights at the Beachrunner, and will be back again, I'm sure!

Visit for Long Beach LGBT PridePosted May 26, 2016 on Hotels
I was greeted and checked in very nicely by the owner-operator of the bed and breakfast. She showed me around to get acquainted with the layout of the house.My room was somewhat small, but since I was there for three days, I did not mind.All lights,fans and faucets were found to be in working order.The bed was mid-firm with no squeaks heard and has several pillows to make anyone comfortable.The wi-fi system uses WPA2 protection so any device you bring will work at the hotel.Breakfast is served 7AM to 9 AM.The breakfast is served on a old fashioned dining table that seats up to 8 people.Cold cereal,hot coffee,an egg dish and a fruit cup is served proudly by the owner.Be aware if you get a room facing the street (Broadway Ave.), you will get a lot of traffic noise since the house is very close to the sidewalk.The neighborhood is a mix of single family homes and multi-residential buildings,so parking will be sparse around the bed and breakfast.The house was decorated by the owner and is very tastefully done.The house was built in 1913 in the Craftsmen style, so you will find a lot of nicks and cuts that shows the age of the house.Be sure to check out the small piano in the living room.Good luck with your visit.

Wonderful B&B with Old World CharmPosted Apr 13, 2016
Pros: it was warm, welcoming, and a ideal location.
Cons: amenities could be updated, but also, the way it is now gives true feelings of a simpler era
I grew up in Long Beach. I was returning for a reunion of old friends. I chose to stay at the Beachrunner's Inn because I wanted to be reminded of what it felt like being a part of the city. I lived in 2 different places, both blocks away from the Inn. Not only was it nostalgic, but it felt like home. Simple, the beach just a few blocks away, independent shops off Broadway and 4th Street, the Belmont Shore a short 5 minute drive. The hostess even greeted us warmly though we had to arrive at 1 in the morning. I would highly recommend the Beachrunner's Inn if you want to feel like you live in the city, and want to be a part of the city, and not just feel like a tourist staying in a downtown hotel.
