“Alumni rate is great!”
Reviewed 25 September 2011

No way are you getting a better view for a cheaper price in Malibu. To be able to stay on the Pepperdine campus and be right in the middle of Malibu you can't beat it. I have stayed here twice now and both times have been great. Plenty of rooms almost all with an ocean view. You are on top of the campus so there is really no better view. 24 hour reception desk so you can check in anytime. I am definitely coming back!

I was getting married at the Pepperdine Chapel and wanted all of my preparing to be done close-by. Although not what you think of as a full-service hotel(no room-service, etc.), my room was LOVELY, quiet, and had an ocean view. It was perfect for me.

Loved this hotel. The rooms were very attractive and our room with a magnificent view of the ocean was totally worth the extra $20/night. It was a great location while touring Pepperdine. We have stayed in another hotel in Malibu on the beach and it was more and while it was on the beach, it really didn't have a view from the room and it was tiny. I liked being on campus - just wished that you could get food in the room. You can go to the campus dining facilities or any of the great restaurants in Malibu. The staff was very helpful. It is used for business meetings, but we didn't feel out of place at all. Just sitting on the deck as the sun set over the ocean overlooking the gorgeous campus was such a treat. Would definitely stay there again.

My husband & I have stayed at the Graziadio three times now, & we love this little hidden gem of a hotel. We've never had a view of the Pacific, but our rooms that faced the Santa Monica Mtns. were lovely----clean, modern, & the bed & linens so comfortable & sparkling white. The atmosphere is serene & so quiet at night. We loved having a cup of Starbucks coffee every morning in the lobby before we left to sightsee or participate in a conference on the Pepperdine campus below the hotel.

The only drawback for us is there is no place to eat even a continental breakfast unless one goes down on the campus. We wish the lobby had croissants & fruit on hand by the coffee station.

  • Liked — Where it sits----high above the Pacific on the lovely Pepperdine campus. Also, how clean & quiet it is.
  • Disliked — Not even a continental breakfast.

Disclaimer: I am a Pepperdine grad (I'll leave out how many years ago that was :) and absolutely loved living on the campus.

I stayed at the Villa for 4 nights in the W building while attending a conference at the law school. The rate was half of what I would have paid at comparable nearby hotels. The views were sensational - unobstructed vistas of the Pacific Ocean and Santa Monica Mountains. The room was huge for the price, the linens were extremely comfortable, and the business set-up was great. As an added plus, it was extremely quite in my room - none of the PCH or freeway traffic you can get with some other hotels in the area.

No room service and Pepperdine is still a dry campus, so you'll need a car to get to area restaurants (try Coral Beach Cantina for the best burritos in town or fresh fish at Neptune's Net to the north or Duke's to the south). Otherwise you can rely on campus services and delivery. But you'll need that car anyway for a scenic drive up the coast or hiking through the canyons.

If you're coming to Pepperdine for a conference or other event, you simply can't beat the Villa - enjoy your time in Malibu!
