Honestly, it was shady. Do not rec. if you are travelling alone or with a girlfriend, as I was. Some of the patrons looked downright scary and attempted to converse with me. When we returned from dinner, the screen to our room was pried open. We were moved immediately. Check out the elephant bar next door!

I booked this hotel online and not a cheap room but over $200. I had a couple of questions but the hotel website was down 90% of the time. I sent them at least 10 emails, the last 3 telling them I would cancel if no response. I never heard a word back. I ended up having to cancel. I... More

Nice hotel, but I remebered it to be cheap or, at least, affordable. I ended paying more than 100$ per night, which is what you pay in the close Hollyday Inn or Mariott. The vagabond inn is structured like a motel, and so it should remain. There is no reason why its cost increases so much lately.

I usually have good luck at this hotel but this stay was horrible. The room didn't feel clean and it had a horrible urine smell. Very noisy too. The breakfast was ok but there's no seating and it was really crowded. We come to san Francisco quite often but we won't be staying here again.

The price was right for a last minute room. The room had a bit of an odor but bearable and clean. The hotel has two amazing restaurants right next door and a great continental breakfast in the morning.

It was possible for me to logon to the wifi, but it was so slow that I couldn't get any work done. I could load one web page every 10 minutes or so. Even low-bandwidth tools like ssh didn't work. This is a serious inconvenience for business travel. The Vagabond needs to pay attention to reality and put strict limiters... More

A quick shuttle ride from SFO takes you to this old lady of a hotel which looks like it belongs more on the remote islands of the Pacific than among its gleaming bland neighbours. Small but decent rooms, used by aircrew and budget smart travellers. It’s worth paying for an Oceanside room which is truly Oceanside with nice views. I... More

I have stayed at three other hotels at this area but found that Vagabond Inn is the best! Just the design of the hotel was pleasing to us. There are only two floors. There is a lift if you have heavy suitcases. We enjoyed the ability to just walk down and up the stairs when we did not have heavy... More

Clean, nice breakfast, affordable. Rooms have everything one needs. A bit noisy in some locations, the airport is just across the bay. Big plus for me is that one can open the windows. That the "airconditioning" is not really that but central heating or cooling may be a minus for people used to airconditioning. In the Bay area this is... More
