The UCLA Guesthouse is right on the northeast edge of campus. The rooms are generously sized, though they can be kind of dark. Perhaps that's a response to the endless California sun. We've stayed there twice now, both times for business on campus. It is very convenient for that, and makes for a very comfortable sty. Breakfast offers a very... More

Excellent friendly and efficient staff. Rooms comfortable and clean. Access to UCLA transportation is but only 100 ft away. Breakfast buffet is the tops- Fresh and plentiful If you can qualify and need a great place to stay, the UCLA Guest House is above the rest within the neighborhood. I know I will.

This was the second time I have stayed at the Guest House while at UCLA for business. It is the best deal in regards to location and everything you get: nice rooms, free wi-fi, free parking, free breakfast. You can't get anything equivalent for the price near UCLA. The staff have always been very friendly and helpful. The rooms are... More

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.

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
