I booked 3 nights here at the beginning of August. I was surprised how run down this place looked, but decided to stay anyway (big mistake). The room smelled bad, but I thought it was because the air conditioning wasn't turned on. I noticed there were ants by the door and in the bathroom. The next day I went to... More

I have family in the area, so whenever we are in town for a big bash we are looking for a place to crash! This place was great!!!!!! The set up was a little old school, but it was clean and quiet. The jacuzzi was quite busy, but that's not a bad thing. All in all I wouldn't mind staying... More

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
