This B&B is beautifully decorated, comfortable, quiet and well run.  Robes, soaps, lotions and hair dryer are supplied for your convenience.  The family who owns Beachrunner's Inn are warm and friendly.  Everything is spotlessly clean.  Next time my husband and I are in Long Beach, we know where we'll be staying.  Hint:  If you're thinking about booking a room for either Thanksgiving or Christmas, March is not too early to call.

my honey surprised me with a night up in long beach and a gondola ride through the naples bay waterways.  she booked last minute and picked beachrunners, one of only two B & B's that appeared on a google search for Long Beach.

this B & B isn't very fancy--it doesn't really feel like a hotel of any sort; it just feels like you're staying in someone's home.  the furniture downstairs is gently worn and it feels homey.  i really liked that about it, but it wouldn't be ideal for everyone.  the rooms are tiny, nicely decorated, and spotlessly clean.  our room (the kennebec room) had a queen bed, a private shower/toilet, and a nice bank of windows that open onto the street.  the owners saw to all the little details--even the soaps included were high quality, and i noticed there are robes in the closet.  despite that the rooms are obviously very close together, we didn't hear any one else around, but that may be because we were the only guests.  they have a hot tub, but we were in and out and didn't get to use it.

i liked the family-owners a lot.  i found pat to be warm and professional, her daughter was helpful in the morning with a place to eat some breakfast (we didn't wake up early enough for theirs), and her husband moses was such a character.  he--nodding off in his armchair with his unlit cigarette in his hand (i assume he quit, hence the unlit part)--was my favorite.

the B & B is located in a working class (ha! overpriced working class, like so much of OC) neighborhood, a convenient drive from the belmont shore and ocean areas.  we decided when we return to long beach that we'll try the other B & B, just to compare and because the other one is owned by queer "family," but we'd go back to Beachrunner's for an affordable, comfortable night's stay.

My husband and I enjoyed the beachrunners inn back in January. However, the day after we returned I broke out in a terrible rash. I contacted Pat right away and she informed me that the hot tub had been treated the morning we used it. I spent over $100 on medical bills to treat this allergic reaction ( the chemical levels were off). Pat was apologetic and said she would send us a voucher to come for a future visit. This was over a month ago and I still haven't received the voucher. I have sent 2 follow up emails. Although we enjoyed our stay, the customer service could use improvement. And I would not recommend using the hot tub.

Beautiful home in a very convenient area.
Stayed here for 3 nights in October of 2013 and enjoyed our stay, as well as the delicious breakfast.
A comfortable and relaxing stay.
WE will be back soon.

We stayed with Pat at Beachrunners in April 2014. It was the perfect location for us. A couple of blocks from the beach, plenty of restaurants within walking distance and downtown was a quick bus ride away. We were so relaxed that we ended up staying an extra night. The room was nice, clean, and maintained. I borrowed a book from the communal shelf and dvd's to watch on the dvd player in the room. The long beach Museum was super close, and we tried a new coffee shop in the area every morning. The complimentary soap, shampoo, etc was high quality. We never met Courtney.

We stayed in Beachrunners Inn at the beginning of March and found it most comfortable .it was great after a day walking around the city to come back to our very "homely" room with the kitchen so we could make our own snacks/dinner or whatever we felt like. Beachrunners Inn is in a great location.

Our apartment is small so my in-laws stayed here while they were in town visiting last holiday season. The prices were fair, the rooms were extremely clean, and the family who owns the place was super friendly.

The only complaint was that the room smelled of perfume and my in-laws are very sensitive to scented stuff. The owner said that it was due to the previous guests and she makes sure to wash everything in fragrance-free detergent. The street noise can also be a bit loud as Broadway is such a main drag. Neither are worth knocking off a star, in my opinion.

Will be booking a room for my parents soon!
