The rooms are comfortable, including the bed. It's great to have the kitchenette, which includes a microwave, mini fridge, and Keurig. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The included breakfast is nice -- it's largely bread/muffins, some fruit, some deli meats, yogurt, oatmeal, and cheese. Best of all is the location: you can walk practically anywhere on campus from... More

Given the difficulty of finding anything decent for under $200 in that area, the Guest House is a gem. Even the regular chains are bad or very expensive. Guest House rooms are clean, and sufficient. The breakfast is very good for that level of hotel. Parking is safe. It's where I stay when in that area of the West end.... More

I'm a UCLA alum and stay at the UCLA Guest House whenever I'm back on campus for business. I've stayed there about four times in the last few years. For those familiar with the area, it's right behind the public policy building/LuValle commons, and I love being able to walk out the door and be right on campus in seconds.... More

We had a great room and stay while our son was looking at UCLA. USC was a 20 minute car ride and it was the perfect spot to use as a hub. Plentiful, interesting breakfast items. Cold meat and cheese, lots of carb options, cereals and more. Room was small for three (needed a cot for my son) but we... More

Stayed here last month visiting a former athlete of mine from High School. Friendly check in and nice first floor room. Bed was super comfy and room overall was more than I expected with wet bar and microwave. Location is great being right on campus unfortunately my athlete was swimming all the way over on the west side of campus.... More

This is our fifth year of staying here as we visit our children/students at UCLA. Love the location near the sculpture garden and an easy walk to the heart of the campus/Pauley/performances. Closest you can come to feeling like a "student". Breakfast is always good and ample. Love the coffee and tea set out 24/7. Rooms have been comfortably remodeled... More

Nobody accuses the UCLA guest House of being luxurious. The property has exceedingly modest ambitions and for the most part achieves them. The goal is to offer the comfort and most of the amenities of a midrange motel chain but on the UCLA campus. My room (on the 3rd floor) was serviceable, if noisy. The bed was comfortable enough and... More

For second time this was the best deal we got near Westwood. It has an "inn-ish" feeling to it. The staff is nice. If you are lucky you get complimentary parking. If not you have to park about 300 yards away and pay for the night and then wake up real early to make sure you do not get a... More

Being in UCLA guest house is a great experience. Not only is it close to the facilities, but the guest house is also cozy and commodious. Being in the guest house definitely help me to be more motivated in order to be a Bruin.

I was so lucky to find the Guest House. I had surgery, stayed overnight in the hospital and then one day at the Inn to recover. The room was wonderful, although it was facing the street so it was noisy. If the noise bothers you ask for a quite room. The transportation to the hospital was wonderful. The UCLA bus... More
