This Hotel is a nice , affordable place to stay. Our room was very clean with a refrigerator and microwave. The refrigerator came in handy as I had my mom with me and she takes lots of medicine that requires it to stay cold. Our room had wood floors which I liked very much cause carpets are usually nasty.

I have never been to Hemet before and chose the Vagabond Inn based on previous reviews and the brand name. I was there to attend a baseball tournament. The hotel was very small and looked very run down. There were two tables in the small reception area for the Continental breakfast which looked uninviting. The room itself was small with... More

I stayed at this hotel because they advertised that they took pets. When I got here, they informed me that there would be an extra charge for the dog. Then they told me that I would have to stay in a smoking room, also because of the dog. (I asked if I had to sleep on the floor like the... More

The staff is great! The room I got was not so great; it smelled like smoke despite being a "non-smoking room". Perhaps it's non-smoking when a non-smoker stays there. The water pressure was excellent! I liked the Wi-Fi. For $60/night it's fine. Plan on your clothes and luggage smelling of smoke after your stay.

I stay at this motel whenever I visit Hemet and the manager Tony and his wife Yesenia are very friendly and always make me feel welcome. This is an older motel but the rooms are clean and you can't get a better price than theirs. If you don't need a pool or extra amenities that we pay extra for in... More

First things first. The desk and staff were helpful, friendly and accommodating, and their continental breakfast, while very limited, was still a nice touch. But these are the only "pros" I can honestly offer. To clarify, I am not a hotel snob, and I understand that a $60/night motel guest should not expect the Four Seasons ... but I regret... More

Although the Vagabond Inn is decently priced, the property is unappealing. The best I can say is that the rooms appear very clean, but the fixtures are old, the bathroom is dated and in spite of recent renovation, there are cracks in the walls, chipping paint and a general feeling of neglect. The person at the desk was friendly and... More

Stayed here pretty much by default and didn't like the looks of things when we got here (see review for Desert Lodge in Palm Springs). The glass wall with the key slot wasn't a welcoming sight when we got there, but the staff was nearly above reproach! They were all uber friendly and willing to help in any way. The... More
