“Excellent area of Los angeles”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2014

The Brentwood Inn is in a lovely Los Angeles residential neighborhood and is a good value and quiet even though it is adjacent to Sunset Boulevard. The rooms are small and could use an upgrade to hardwood floors (many good hotels no longer use carpet on the floor) if they would like a more upscale look in the rooms and a more discerning clientele. Also, the sheets seemed to be in less than perfect condition. It is a rehabbed motel from the 60's in an absolutely terrific location for travel around Santa Monica and environs.
However, The staff on duty was extremely courteous and wonderfully helpful at all times and we enjoyed our stay there very much and will return.

The Brentwood staff is super accommodating , I didn't have a reservation, but they found me a room next to the lobby ( I'm a senior female solo traveller ). the room was modern , super clean with plenty of towels, very good quality towels may I add.
In the morning croissants, yogurts, fruits, coffee , tea, milk....... was available as well as trays ,if one would rather have breakfast in their room or on the patio next to the reception area.
Before starting out for my morning walk , I was offered a bottle of water and suggested routes.
I would recommend this motel.

Room Tip: I really like my room next to the lobby, but was shown other rooms, some with private patio, looks v...

My son and I stayed here for three nights while doing a college tour of UCLA and Pepperdine, and SoCal. We arrived very late and, after trying to find something open (it was 11pm) we finally came back to the hotel. I went to the lobby to get a cookie and fruit for my son (starving teenager) and the guy at front desk said 'hey, let's see what else we have" and found muffins, pastries, fruit, and juice for me to take back. *win* We encountered 5 different hotel hosts and each was equally as professional and accommodating as the last. Rooms are very comfortable and location was perfect for us. More value than the price, that's for sure. Cleaning crew provided us with extra towels to take to the beach (it's California, right??) I adored it. very clean. very safe neighborhood. Will stay here again. Sure, everything is a bit small (but super clean)-but if you come to LA just to stay in a hotel room, you are missing out.

Room Tip: Sunset Blvd is very busy, Fire hall is very close by. Unless you are planning to sleep all day, th...

Everything here is small, the rooms, the bathrooms, the parking lot, the reception area, the breakfast serving nook - but - everything was very comfortable, well designed, and met our needs. We had a room toward the back of the property and street noise was not an issue for us. We had easy driving access to all points of interest, and it was a comfortable walk to Wilshire Blvd. and lots of restaurants. For an LA property, it was reasonably priced and we would stay here again.

The staff was very nice and very helpful. The answered all my questions, provided directions and recommendations and even got me a cookie before it was tie for afternoon cookies and milk. The down side was the bathroom was tiny and the air conditioning unit would go on the fritz.

Room Tip: Choose a room towards the back. Certain times of the day the road traffic is a bit loud.

The rooms at the Brentwood Inn look like a boutique hotel rather than a motel. There are little touches of comfort that we didn't anticipate. The staff are very friendly and helpful, and we loved eating breakfast outside on the little terrace with its fountain. The location was perfect, in a lovely neighbourhood, within easy driving distance to the beach at Santa Monica (about 10 - 15 mins) and to all the tourist attractions in Hollywood. Highly recommended as a base to see LA.

The Brentwood Inn is an ideal place if you have lots to do in the Santa Monica, West LA, Brentwood area of LA. The parking is easy, the staff is very helpful and the morning coffee and pastries are nice. We knew we would not be in any hotel for any amount of time, and we wanted to be happy when the day was over to be in a clean nice room. The Brentwood Inn was perfect for our stay.

Room Tip: we started in a queen bed room then moved when a king room was available. The rooms were identical...
