We stayed at the Long Beach Vagabond Inn over the Fourth of July weekend. We weren't sure what to expect after reading mixed reviews, but I think our experience was what a person might expect from a budget hotel. The bed was comfortable, the pillows were average. They gave us extra pillows and towels when we requested them. The front... More

The hotel is conveniently located walking distance to the convention centre, the Long Beach Aquarium, performance centre etc... Rooms are quite spacious, the beds and linen are fine.. What turns you off are the curtains, the curtains are dirty, stained. I basically did not want to touch them, the air conditioner was so noisy it can be heard from the... More

Did NOT find other poor reviews valid. We will definitely stay here if we visit Long Beach again! Not a super-fancy hotel but we always have found the beds comfortable & rooms clean! The staff has always been pleasant & accommodating.

I would say the cleanliness of the room was good. Pool is nice. Breakfast was just muffins and cereal. We only stayed here for about 16 hrs as a stop over. Right in downtown Long Beach so close to everything.

I spent 4 nights here in February... 1st room - I was accidentally sent to a dirty room.. 2nd room - right by the elevator and ice machine (no sleep)... 3rd room on 3rd floor and descent... Breakfast - not much selection... Staff - apologetic and accommodating with the room issues.. Location - descent... Close walk to downtown...

I have stayed here more than once, generally when there was no other nearby accommodation available. It would be a last resort as it's older and a bit grubby, lots of yelling and drunks on the street outside at night and early hours. Rooms were air conditioned. Pool was clean. Breakfast was basic. There are certainly worse places to stay... More

There is no hot water in this hotel. Lukewarm in the evening, cold in the morning. Upon arrival, the front desk employee would argue with me on every single request : why do you want to see the room beforehand, why do you want a room facing the back (away from the busy street) ?.... Quiet night, but at 8... More
