UCLA Tiverton House
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 17 June 2014

We have to go to UCLA for my husbands treatments and we prefer Tiverton House over all the others in the area. It is very hard to find availability so I have to call every day but it is so worth it. Rooms clean. Staff helpful. Shuttle a must and always available. Complementary parking so we just stash the car and use the shuttle. A big Ralph's grocery store is across the street so we can get hot food or groceries any time. Complementary breakfast is helpful. I just wish I knew the secret to getting a room when I need it. Planning ahead is not an option unfortunately. We had to take a room with a Murphy bed this time but it was even nice although the small bed (full) was cramped for us.

I had business recently at UCLA Medical Centre and found mention of Tiverton House Hotel online. I called and booked the four nights I needed. I can only give high marks for the entire experience. The rooms were fairly large (mine had two double beds, a flat screen TV, small fridge, ample closet space, large sunny window, and well appointed bathroom with shampoo, skin cream, mouthwash etc. The facility is run by UCLA for those having business at UCLA Medical Centre (and families) and it could not have been nicer. The common areas include a well stocked library, a business centre with two computers, a lovely lounge with patio, even a gym and a child play area. I have had less available at so-called luxury hotels. A shuttle bus can get you back and forth to the medical centre buildings. Or it can be walked if not too hot out in a few minutes. Best of all it is located in a great spot...just a short stroll away from shops, restaurants/pubs, pharmacies, a Target store, two large supermarkets, ice cream and bakery establishments in the area called Westwood. I loved my stay in the area -- I found it quiet, pretty and charming. And if I ever have business back there again....would stay no place else. Staff seemed more friendly/helpful in afternoon and evening than the morning desk folks. The hotel is across the road from UCLA's botanical gardens, so one can go for a stroll through there to pass the time. I give this an A-plus rating for the low cost of the rooms. An added value is the included breakfast. It had every manner or pastry, bagel or toast, four kinds of cereal, fresh fruits, fresh juice, tea, coffee, cream cheese for the bagels, hard boiled eggs and so on. For a cold breakfast it was one of the better ones I have run across. Wi-Fi worked great too...checked my computer in my room every day and never missed a connection.

Room Tip: Stay on the back away from the street and it will be quieter...but it is a longer walk to the lobby...

Good breakfast. WI-FI and public use of PC. Quiet neighborhood with enough buslines to the center of the city or to the ocean. 20 minutes walk to UCLA. Many restaurants, shops and supermarkets near by.

I stayed at the Tiverton House while a relative was in the UCLA Ronald Reagan Hospital. The rooms were clean, if a bit austere. The proximity to the hospital and good restaurants was a plus. Transportation was provided, 24-7, to and from the hospital which is what makes this hotel special. Daytime front desk staff were always excellent; night staff not quite so helpful. The complimentary garage parking, as well as continental breakfast, were added touches.

Room Tip: There were two types of rooms: an efficiency with a mini-kitchen and a murphy bed, and a 2-queen be...

This location is stellar for visits to UCLA or Westwood area. Walking to restaurants & theaters is easy. Breakfast can be crowded. Service runs warm to very cold at the front desk. Rooms satisfactory at price point.

Had an extended stay while wife underwent treatment at UCLA Medical Center. This is a great location while visiting UCLA. Target and Ralph's groceries are across the street and Trader Joe's is another 100 feet. Plenty of restaurants within easy walking distance and public transportation is nearby. The hotel is a fair condition and the rooms are okay with sparse furnishings. The staff though is very helpful. Amenities include a kitchen for use by guest which comes in handy when you are already spending plenty on medical issues. There is also on site parking (though we did not need a car due to the proximity to groceries, dining and entertainment), free continental breakfast, internet access (limited - I had trouble getting some email), use of a computer and a small library. The room includes TV, iron and ironing board and small frig but no safe. For the area it is very reasonably priced.

Stayed at Tiverton House for 1 night for a campus visit to UCLA with my child. Shared a murphy bed (the roll away was not comfy so they didn't end up charging us for it-good customer service). The location of Tiverton House is excellent. Easy walk across the street to campus and many places to eat and shop within a couple of blocks (restaurants, grocery stores-Trader Joe's, Ralph's- and other places for necessities like CVS or Target City). Staff was helpful. Scott was very welcoming when checking in and provided lots of information. Stored bags for us and they have easy parking. I would recommend to others.

Room Tip: Don't know about other rooms but ours was quiet even though the window overlooked the street.
