The Vagabond in Chula Vista is conveniently located just off the I-5, E street exit and close to CA 54. Convenient to the mall, restaurants, and other shopping. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Pool on the premises. Not high end - but comfortable and affordable. A reasonable price and nice place to stay when in the area. We stay there... More

We were in town for our girls to go to ComicCon and needed the best value we could get. We stayed 5 nights here. This hotel is a bit outdated. The windows are the old style with louvers, which didn't close. Some had gaps of almost an inch. And the air conditioners have a motion sensor, so they shut off... More

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
