I had to do an overnight trip to Westwood to apply for a work visa at the Czech consulate. This was by far the closest hotel to the consulate on Wilshire Boulevard, so i decided to give it a try, since the reviews here on TripAdvisor were good. I wasn't disappointed in my choice.
If you are looking for a luxurious and spacious room, then stay somewhere else. If you are looking for a better-than adequate room in a quiet location in Westwood, then stay here! The building itself was probably built near the middle of the last century, but the rooms are modern and well equipped. I stayed in a queen room, and the space was great for one person. The room was not large, but I didn't feel cramped at all. The flat screen TV was easy to watch from the bed, the bed as well as the desk and chair were comfortable. Decent sized mini-fridge and microwave also in the room. The air conditioning unit was not exactly quiet...but not really loud either. It did not keep me awake or prevent me from sleeping. I stayed on the ground floor, which had an enclosed patio with two chairs and a small table. I think the rooms on the upper floors have balconies, which would be an added plus.
The hotel was an easy four block walk from the "Fly Away" bus stop on Kinross which brought me to and from LAX. $10 each way...a deal I would recommend instead of taking a taxi or renting a car.
Upon checking in the hotel clerk was eager to assist me with maps of UCLA and the surrounding area, as well as how to get to the Czech consulate. Outstanding service...above and beyond the call of duty!
The free breakfast was decent, a little better than average. Coffee and cream was always available when I wanted it. Thumbs up!
I really liked the area around the hotel...Westwood Village has lots of shops, restaurants and bars to choose from. The hotel is an easy walk to the UCLA campus as well.
If you need a no-frills place to stay near UCLA, I would recommend this property. I would stay here again, no questions asked. A hidden gem in Westwood. :)
