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.

Being our first time in California this Inn was a great place to stay. Minutes from the airport and a short drive from downtown this Inn helped us really enjoy the area. Loved their breakfast, the food tasted very nice

Great location nice location for restaurants and jog along the bay. Service was subpar by employees, guest were very outgoing, and may go back. Beds were not as soft add we would have liked, ran out of soap, breakfast was very appealing.
