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 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

Dirtiest hotel I have ever stayed in. Sperm stain on the wall above the head board that was so large and obvious you would need to be blind not to see it. An inch of dust behind the bed stand. The fan in the bathroom so caked in dust that it was not able to function and it stunk so... More

I stayed at the Vagabond Inn for three nights while attending a convention this December. The room was clean, however, a bit "tired". The curtain was stained from condensation off the windows and the door to the bathroom would not close completely and had appeared to have been punched or kicked sometime in the past. I was also a bit... More

I booked a group of rooms for guests for my wedding...the hotel charged me for a night's no show, turned out that they claimed one of my guests didn't use the booking I gave her, and booked her own room. My guest said that was absolutely not true! I spoke to the manager but he refused to refund the charge...for... More

Run away !! This hotel is very dirty. There are mice in the mattress and a lot in the room. We have not been able to sleep all night long, awakened by rats. The room cleaning is not done. Rooms are ugly and the equipment of the hotel is dated. Staff is very strange, not very friendly.

Friendly and competent staff and a very good location. Reasonably priced and clean, quiet and comfortable accommodations. This was a last minute accommodation booked on the hotel website. I received the senior rate and the process was much easier than the booking sites.
