We planned to stay in this hotel for 2 nights but the morning after our first night, when I went to take a shower I discovered ants all around the bathtub. They were pharaoh ants and coming from inside the walls. Knowing a bit about ants, I realize that these are a huge issue and very difficult to get rid... More

I recently had a family emergency and had to stay in the area so I decided to check into the Vagabond inn. When I checked in it was 1:30 am, upon arrival I was greeted at the front desk by a kind gentlemen with a friendly smile asking me how he could assist me. When I got to my room... More

After several other hotels told us they were completely booked, we came to this place. The person at the lobby was very friendly and gave us a 2-bed, non-smoking room which from what I saw was pretty clean. The bathroom was clean as well and I had no issues whatsoever with my stay. Although it's not a prime location it... More

This place was so philthy and on top of that the hot water does not work!! They must have an electrical problem because the lights kept turning off. Also the ront desk lady "Melissa" was very rude. Do your self a favor and pass on this one.

Run away!! This hotel is super ghetto. The area is awful. Directly behind the hotel is a run down sketchy trailer park with barb wire fencing that run right up to the stairs of the hotel. There were police lights every night across the street. Homeless people and crackheads galore. The rooms are dirty and old. The furniture is chipped... More

Found exposed electrical wire in the grass outside my room. Was part of the landscape lighting but was not covered. Exposed wires wet from the sprinklers were black and chard from electrical discharge.Notified the manger next mourning but he didn't seem to care.

The staff is okay. The room has all your basic needs and they clean it every day. A big plus is they offer free WIFI. it's fairly close to the trolley station though there are several hotels in the area that are even closer. they only have one electrical outlet in the room though, and i kind of needed more....

This hotel was one of our stops during a road trip. We really just needed a place to crash for a night so didn't need a palace. It was cheap and looked OK on the website. Location was convenient - close to the highway- as we needed to hit the road early in the morning, but the area itself is... More
