I inquired if there was room is available, and the front desk asked me if I am coming for pleasure or work??? I asked him why would this change the rates? He rudely told me to look on Expedia and hang up the phone... Not sure if this is the way to treat a future customer. Ended up in front... More

I stayed at this hotel because I was doing research at UCLA. It was a reasonable price for the area. It didn't have any transportation and this hotel was within walking distance not only of the university, but also of stores (Target, Ralphs), tons of restaurants, a movie theater, etc. Centrally located for those visiting the university or the medical...

I admit, after reading some of the reviews I was a bit tentative about booking this hotel. However, we decided to go for it as it was very close to UCLA and the purpose of going to LA was to visit our daughter who attends the school. I was so glad we did! Yes, it's not a five-star hotel, and... More

Simple and clean with a knowledgeable and helpful staff. Free parking is a bonus in LA. I spent 14 days there on business and was very pleased. Within easy walking distance to downtown Westwood, UCLA, shops, movies, and eateries.

Each staff member at the Hilgard is extremely courteous . The location is perfect, located on a tree lined street not on a congested LA boulevard. The Higard is older a older hotel but I found it to be charming and very comfortable. The Hilgard will definitely be my place to stay the next time I visit LA..

Hotel is a good value, quiet and convenient location, but showing wear and tear inside and out. Continental breakfast in tight lobby area is not inviting. This could be a GREAT boutique hotel if properly renovated.

We needed a place to stay in LA for our son's graduation at UCLA. The Hilgard House is just south of the campus, and we were able to walk up to the ceremony. But beyond location, this is a small boutique hotel that was just perfect. Our room was comfortable, clean and classy. It had everything we needed in the... More

I was delighted with my experience at the Hilgard House. This was my first time visiting but it won't be my last. The hotel is charming and the staff was wonderful. Walking distance to restaurants, etc - highly recommend.

My husband and I spent 1 week at the Hilgard as we were visiting UCLA. The rooms are nice and clean, teh staff is super-friendly and helpful, but the breakfast arranged in the lobby is not what you want to start the day. You can take it to your own room, however, or you can choose to go to the... More
