“Great Guest House on UCLA Campus”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2012

This was out first stay at the UCLA Guest House and what a delightful find. Staff was very accommodating, especially with early check in at a busy time. It was very clean, comfortable and well appointed. The continental breakfast exceeded expectation in many ways. Free parking as well. We will be back.

Room Tip: Request a room not opening onto the multi-level lobby area.

Great place to stay when you visit campus as a parent .Cosy and comfortable . Well maintained rooms and extremely efficient and cheerful front desk and very helpful Manager . Great breakfast spread and 24 hour hot coffee . No restaurant and therefore lunch/dinner has to be planned 30 minutes earlier by ordering on phone a takeaway burger/pizza or visiting any of the Westwood restaurants or even the Ackerman building which has a food outlet till around 9pm except Sunday for by well connected campus buses or even a comfortable 20 min walk. Situated on a vast and beautiful campus. As a family,best to reach there direct by taxi/shuttle (usd 50) from the airport than take a FLYAWAY bus (USD 10 per head ) an a cab (further US 7-10)from there .It is located on the edge of the campus and may seem isolated in a lush green forest atmosphere but is quite well connected .Local transport can be by hiring a ca which is easily organised thru front desk, connecting thru a campus bus or by taking Metro buses just close by which can take you straight thru Hollywood , Sunset Blvd etc .

Room Tip: Ground floor rooms are good and convenient to walk down to reception area and have a beautiful vie...

Stayed for New Student Orientation. Lovely place, good location, comfy rooms, free internet, iPod charger and VERY helpful staff. Breakfast ample, but only one table, everyone else had to balance their tray on their lap.

There is a nice cold breakfast but that is all the food here. Bring your own teabags because there are only flavored teas at breakfast. You are not near any restaurants although Westwood restaurants will deliver to the hotel. One vending machine has cookies & chips. The soda machine was broken. The free campus shuttle stops here but does not run on weekends. The beds are comfortable and the decorations were nice.

Room Tip: Rooms facing Charles E Young Dr are quieter. Hilgard Ave has a lot of traffic & rumble strips.

We stayed here for 4 nights for student and family orientation. Our experience was a very good one. We travelled with 2 little kids and a 18 year old. We were given inter connecting rooms. The beds and pillows were soft and lovely. The iPhone dock with charger was another bonus. Breakfast of a selection of pastries/ cold meat/ cereal and everything else was perfect. I would recommend anyone to stay here . The staff are friendly and very helpful.

Very clean rooms decorated with antique furniture (in the positive sense); our beds were superb and soft - no plywood as mentioned before. Strange how different experiences can be. The brekafast was very good but somehow odd because there are no proper tables to eat - either you sit on a sofa with your plate on the knees or you take the food to your room. Staff at the reception were not especially friendly. Actually the cleaning staff were more friendly and cheerful. Big plus point is the parking garage with direct elevator access to the room floors. Neverthelles, the place is too expensive for what you get - at the end it is a guesthouse and not a 4 star hotel.We will go somewhere else next time. The best of the hotel are the pictures hanging at the walls showing old scenes from Westwood and UCLA.

Don't let the "guesthouse" fool you - this is a proper hotel with wonderful staff, clean rooms, great windows and accents, and a lovely lobby and seating area with couches and a fireplace! I spent a few nights lounging near the fire, reading a book. This area also doubles as the breakfast serving area during the mornings - they have a great spread with cheeses, cereals, fruit, bagels, pastries, coffee, juices and teas. The coffee/tea area is self-serve and stocked all day and night, so you can grab an herbal tea with hot water at bedtime! The office boasts a work table, and a few public computers with printing capabilities. From what I heard through my other colleagues, mine was the best hotel in the UCLA vicinity. The location on campus makes access so easy, and the spot is right near the statue garden, a peaceful outdoor space to relax. I stayed in a regular room, without the kitchenette space, so can't comment on those amenities, but that sounds very attractive for a longer stay. Highly recommended!
