Great location. Quaint size.

Posted Aug 7, 2017
Great location. Needs upgrade. Rooms and furniture a bit beat up. Good local feel. Staff on arrival was a bit grumpy..not particularly welcoming. Great location for UCLA. Convenient and quiet although we could small smoke from cigarettes even though non smoking. .......................................

Close to UCLA campus.

Posted Jul 24, 2017
Pros: Quiet and close to UCLA campus
Cons: Parking
We had a visit to UCLA for one day and found that this was the best option for staying close to campus on a budget. It was a nice place to stay, very quiet.

terrific location near UCLA and services

Posted Jul 20, 2017
Though not a "fancy-shmancy" hotel, this place has old world style, so if you don't need modern bling, this is a great find. Restaurants, groceries, other services are just steps away. Hotel staff is extremely friendly and helpful. For our purposes, having it so crazy close to UCLA sealed the deal. This will be our "go to" hotel when we're in the area. (Our only knock would be the continental breakfast is a bit "meh". All the other positives outweigh that, though and there are a ton of other food options nearby.) It also helped that there is a row of taxis seemingly always available across the street at a competitor's site. Super convenient!!!

Super convenient location

Posted May 20, 2017
Pros: Spacious room, whirlpool tub, pleasant ambiance, and a book exchange in the lobby.
Cons: The continental breakfast wasn't worth getting up for. Wi-fi was really slow.
Location: An easy walk to UCLA campus.
This old-school hotel is a block away from UCLA and within an easy walk of restaurants and theaters. It has a fun euro-shabby-chic and the room was large, clean and well appointed. It's pricey but in line with the other hotels in the area.

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at The Hilgard House!

I really enjoyed the coziness of this hotel and the location. The customer service was outstanding. If you want a quiet hotel with upscale clientele near UCLA, this is a great hotel.

It is convenient to UCLA but that is about all

Posted Apr 26, 2017
Pros: Convenient
Cons: Complete rehab.
Location: Visit UCLA -- nothing else since Westwood is as bleak as ever
Convenient to UCLA, and generally clean, but old, minimal resources (the donuts were good), and too expensive considering the condition. They can only charge what they do because of the area. You may as well pay a bit more and get something more updated.
