    Historical Traveler Reviews The Brentwood Inn Los Angeles

    Very Charming 'boutique' motor inn


    Wasn't sure what to expect. But from the signage, to the hospitality, to the many stylish room details this was a pleasurable experience. I'd relish another trip to LA for the Brentwood alone. The small grounds are established with Angel's Trumpets, Gardenias, Pomegranates, and other plantings making this New Yorker covetous. Great proximity to the Getty!

    Like a home away from home


    The Brentwood Inn is a quaint and charming place. Very unique for Los Angeles. I really enjoyed my stay there. The bed was so comfortable and I slept wonderfully. The room has a very zen-like ambiance. The decor is simple, yet tasteful and easy on the eyes. The rooms are also impeccably clean and fresh.

    Excellent location


    WE decided to go to this hotel because of the price, much more affordable than other hotels in the area and in Santa Monica. The location turned out to be perfect: close to the San Diego Freeway and Westwood and other attractions i.e. the new fantastic Paul Getty Museum. We liked the possibility to park the car in front of our room and be able to easily unload our luggage. The room and the bathroom were confortable and very clean. The only disappointment was the breakfast in the morning: they were doing some renovations so it was in the reception room, very ramped and no seats. Also the were only muffins and some staled pastries.

    Overall we think this hotel is an excellent value for your money.

    Cool little place


    I was pleasantly surprised by this tiny motor inn on the corner of Sunset and Kenter in Brentwood. Resident/owners JC & Kanuja Champaneri could not be any more devoted in terms of making sure guests are satisfied. Rooms are small, but they're clean and comfortable and have everything you need, including the aforementioned refrigerator (good-sized!), the free bottled water, complimentary high-speed internet, the Aveda goodies etc. I also loved being in Los Angeles and NOT having to pay $30 a day additional for valet parking (plus constant gratuities). Just pull right up and you're at your room. Loved that, and the convenience to nearby shops in the Village of Brentwood, including The Whole Foods. The only problem I encountered was an inability to work the remote for the heater/ac unit mounted high above. The bathroom is also very small, particularly the shower stall. I'm only 5'3" and I don't weigh very much, and I didn't have much room in any direction. Also ladies -- since the bathroom has a pedestal-type sink, there is almost no counter space, other than a narrow shelf above the toilet. So laying out the make-up, the hair brush, the blow-dryer, the curling iron, etc. was a bit of a challenge. (There is however an old fashioned medicine cabinet). Also, I found the driveway entrance a bit difficult to navigate due to its awkward location. Don't even try to make a left from Sunset, just go around the block. But these are not complaints, just observations. All in all, for the price, the service (including free muffins and fruit in the a.m; cookies in the afternoon), and its in-town location, there probably is no better buy in LA.

    Brentwood Inn, the only place in Brentwood, Ca


    We have been going to the Brentwood Inn for about 10 years and feel it is

    the only place to stay in Brentwood (Los Angeles), Ca. The owners are

    friendly and make you feel like family. The rooms are neat and tidy and

    recently remodeled. It is a pleasure to go there. They have high speed

    internet and give excellent concierge service. We have not even thought

    about another place to go in years, and we travel regularly to Brentwood. It

    is a pleasure to recommend them

    My Favorite Place to Stay!!!!


    I love the Brentwood Inn. (And I'm not fast to compliment things in general) And I only hesitate to write this review because The Brentwood Inn is a precious gem of a secret that I don't necessarily want to share.. but so much for being selfish.

    If you care about things like being treated in an incredbly wonderful polite civilized endearing fashion... go to The Brentwood Inn.

    If you enjoy a room and a bathroom that is exceptionally impecably clean and updated and perfect.. stay at The Brentwood Inn.

    If you relish in lying in bedding and linens with multiple pillows that are of higher quality and standards ... stay at The Brentwood Inn.

    If you like having modern lights and air conditioning and heating and a refridgerator always stocked with free bottles of water and a television and free internet access in your room that is completely modern and working with no problems... stay at the Brentwood Inn.

    If you understand what free easy accessible parking is all about in LA... stay at the Brnetwood Inn.

    If you want to be in the heart of LA and Beverly Hills and Santa Monica and the shopping and the promenade and the museums and the studios and the ocean and Venice Beach AND return to the comfort, peace and quiet of an exclusive residential neighborhood... stay at the Brentwood Inn.

    Simply.. if you want Politeness, Privacy, Parking and Perfection.. Stay at the Brentwood Inn.

    I am not related to the young sweet couple who own this Inn (although I feel like family) and I'm not their advertising person or anything.. BUT this is my third stay here within months (I'm a New Yorker) and I just wanted to note somewhere about this remarkable place. In a world where there are so many mistakes, it's refreshing to find that somebody got it right.

    The place, the people, and the PRICE are all right on target. BULLSEYE!

    If you want to be treated poorly and sleep on cardboard sheets and spend your time waiting for you car... there are plenty of other places you can stay at.

    But if you want to have complimentary afternoon/evening aromatic flavored teas and incredible oatmeal and chocholate chip cookies... stay at THE BRENTWOOD INN!

    Sincerely and warmly submitted by,

    A hidden gem


    The Brentwood is one of those rare hidden gems that you stumble upon in the hospitality industry. Our company requires alot of travel and we put all of our people in this lovely, romantic, sophisticated hotel.

    The rooms are very clean, they offer extras such as Aveda products in their bathrooms. There is ample parking (without extra charge!)

    The staff is very accommodating -- they got up to check us in at 2:00 a.m. and were so kind.

    I can't speak highly enough about this wonderful property and the owners. I wish we had one of these in all the cities we do business in!

    We love the Brentwood Inn!


    I never write reviews, but I decided to write about the Brentwood Motor Hotel because we had such an exceptionally good experience there. My husband and I stayed there for 1 week while visiting my mother in Santa Monica. It's a great place. The rooms, recently renovated, are tastefully done...elegant simplicity. Clean and well-cared for. Quiet. The family who runs the hotel were friendly and helpful. The room was large, the bed very comfortable, and the refrigerator very convenient. We were able to use our laptop computer with free high speed internet access.

    The location was incredibly convenient to Santa Monica, Brentwood, and the freeway. A great value. We will definitely stay there again!

    Whenever we're in Los Angeles, we're at The Brentwood Inn


    Deb and I have stayed at your facility for what I'm sure is over two decades by now and will continue to do so for as long as you will have us.

    Whenever we come to Los Angeles to see our beloved USC Trojans play football we stay nowhere else, nor would we even consider doing so save for a sellout condition on your which case we'd ask to be put on your waiting list and immediately cancel whatever else we had secured the minute The Brentwood offered us an opening.

    Deb and I are easy-to-please, low-maintenance people really, and your facility is everything for which we could ask: clean, comfortable, well

    maintained, well located, safe, accessible, competitively priced, proximate to shopping and dining and freeway-friendly among other things. In short, as far as we are concerned The Brentwood really has no peer in Los Angeles.

    But even if there were a close second to The Brentwood in town, we'd find ourselves at your place. What makes The Brentwood our first choice in Los Angeles hospitality locations is just that: the hospitality! We're somehow more than "guests" at The Brentwood, although that is the generic industry term for our relationship with you there and we know that.

    We're extended a level of personal attention and awareness at The Brentwood EVERY time we show our faces at your door. You know us by our first names (which we have to keep insisting you use) and you're known to us by yours. You go out of your way to accommodate an ultra-early or drainingly-late arrival on our part. We certainly endeavor to keep special requests to an absolute minimum, and in return we can't recall one thing we've asked of you over the years you haven't made every attempt to accomplish. For this we gratefully tender a thunderous "thank you."

    Certainly we're not authentic "family", nor do we own a piece of the enterprise. But that having been said, I'm not all that sure an outside observer wouldn't think as much were they to concentrate on how we are treated at The Brentwood Inn. In short, you're a unique and special group to us, we are most appreciative of your efforts on our behalf and we always look to reciprocate the courtesies whenever we are privileged to be under your roof.

    This wasn't meant to be the lengthy testimonial but it appears to have become. However, if you care to save a copy or use it for promotional purposes please feel free to do so. We just thought it high time we acknowledged your success in making everything as natural and effortless as you make it for your guests.

    Excellent Stay


    The Brentwood Motor Hotel was clean, quiet and peaceful. It is a quick drive (pending traffic) from LAX and easy to find. The staff was excellent and went above and beyond the usual customer service I've experienced at other hotels. Large muffins and fruit were served during a continental breakfast and cookies/milk were available in the afternoon.

    A location bonus is their close proximity to the ocean and UCLA. I would highly recommend it for single travelers/couples who want to be close to attractions but want to be away from the tourist mahem.

They were a break dancing crew but also did some flips and stuff. It was pretty good! The beach was also really beautiful. I love that all the beaches on the coast always have a lot of surfers. Now heading north on the Pacific Coastal Highway ...

I wasn't afraid to be more in the front, now that I'd taken her class before. Just before the warm up started she walked around to say hi to people and she told me: a gorgeous face like that I'll never forget, it's so good to see you in class today. That made me shine from the inside out. She is just such ...
