The room is pretty outdated with really thin walls. My family was chatting with inside voices, yet around 10.30p we got the knock on the door by a security guard for a noise disturbance, which made us really upset since we weren't even partying or screaming, plus we were on vacation, no one is planning to go to sleep early! We stayed in a lot of hotels throughout our lives and this is our first and only time getting a complaint about noise disturbance!! The bathroom sliding doors both upstairs and downstairs also weren't working properly. They kept going out of the alignment so it can't be opened from inside, someone else has to push it in to make it back in line to open it. My friend and my daughter got locked in twice! It could've been devastating if no one else weren't around!! The service was great though, everyone was really friendly and helpful. And they have a lot of activity on campus, good for all ages.

Great place to bring the family. Lots of activities available at no extra charge (tennis, basketball, volleyball, shuffleboard, pool, fitness center) on addition to the beautiful grounds. We stayed in the deluxe chalet which was perfect for wife and I and three kids.

This was truly a good old fashion family summer camp. A plethora of activities for each member of our family. Not a boring moment for our granddaughters! The three daily meals were outstanding, as were the staff members! I would highly recommend it!!!

Wonderful family weekend in a 2 bedroom Chalet. The lodge and property are lovely and great for families with children. The food was excellent as was the service staff. The grounds are fun to explore with many fun things for kids like, a tree house, challenge course, etc. The smores were also very fun and an nice touch. We will most certainly return.

We enjoyed hiking, spending time in lovely surroundings with son and daughter-in-law and granddaughter. We had a lovely fire in the fireplace, enjoyed a delicious breakfast, and will return.

Great location and now that it’s open to the general public I’m glad my family got to experience this once exclusive to UCLA affiliation properties. Grounds are beautiful and offer so many different activities fir families.

Chalets (rooms) are dated but very clean and luxurious in that they offer 2-level sleeping quarters and each with its own full bathroom. The linens are brand new but low quality - pack your own if you’re picky. No TVs which is great! Great wifi. Meals are delicious and onsite but pricey for a budget conscious family. We were thankful for the Travelzoo deal that included two breakfasts for 2 adults daily. Huge portions and all great hot food. It would be a fantastic place for a large family reunion.
