We choose this hotel due to its convenience to the airport since we were arriving late and then heading north the next morning. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. The hotel does need a little updating. There is little individual room temperature since it is on a boiler system and is only on heat or AC for... More

Tiny dining area, but patio & lobby offers bit more seating. Food selection great; hot items as potato cakes & couple meats besides eggs offered. 2 types of waffle-making w/ strawberry topping & whipped cream available. Variety of juices & flavored cream for coffee. Items replenished often, didn't wait long. Coffee access throughout day w/ yummy cookies.

I was pretty worried having read some of the posts but the hotel was ok and in a perfect location. Nice path to run along the Bay, safe and clean. There was a free breakfast in the morning that offered a good range of warm food to include bacon.

Arrived an hour early to check in, they refused to let us have a room. Okay, I understand the policy. But they proceeded to ignore us and check in three families before the time they told us. The two staff at the desk were goofing off and making personal calls the entire time- sorry ladies trash talking in Spanish isn't... More

Avoid this motel, management does not care about your safety. Terrible service from the surly young front desk representative. No name tag. Same girl it turns out who also made my reservation experience over the phone so miserable. She gave me a ground floor unit by shoving my key across the counter without so much as a welcome. When I... More

We stayed in the Vagabond Inn just one night in March 2015. On the whole our experience was quite positive. The room was fine, though quite “tired” and a bit run-down-looking (didn’t bother us at all). But it was clean, was inexpensive, and close to the airport, and offered a free shuttle (every half hour) and a free “breakfast”. One... More

Whenever traveling on business to my Hayward office, I always stay at this location. Get the room with the bay view on second or third floors. The view of the bay is great and if you get a balcony, can sit out and enjoy the view. Rooms have been updated and are clean and comfortable. I personally love listening to... More

This is a nice little old-fashion Inn. Complimentary breakfast is from 6-9 in the morning, the free airport shuttle leaves every half hour, and the room is furnished with all necessary stuff. It is highly recommended to take a walk along the seaside to get a wonderful view of the bay area. You can see the golden great bridge if... More

Good value for a place near SFO with a free shuttle. It was clean and right next to a good walk along the shore. Breakfast was not too good but there was outdoor seating in the sunshine which make it better.
