I would describe the Brentwood Inn as a "boutique motel." It's a very pleasant, quiet, conveniently located, and secluded-feeling place about five minutes west of the 405 Freeway. The rooms are small and nothing fancy, but they are well-designed, well-appointed, and very clean. I was running around on business all day, and this was a very nice place to come back to. The village of Brentwood is nearby, and it actually has the feeling of a neighborhood, which is hard to find unless you really know LA.
