What a sad little place. We waited 10 minutes for a clerk to show up to check us in - the foyer looks like a tired brothel waiting room. The door opened up into a seamy room with torn curtains and beat up accoutrements- and then they had the nerve to offer up their branded water at $1.50 a bottle... More

We stayed one night in Vagabond Inn. Our experience in a nutshell: Worst hotel I ever stayed. They have bed bugs, they have mice, they don't clean the room (not even the toilet seat) and they don't even accept to refund. Stay healthy, don't book this hotel! Short story long: First room: We found lot of mouse dirt and asked... More

I've stayed at this property a few times, and it's always been modest but acceptable, but so many things were shabby this time: non-working TV, minimally functioning A-C, stained furniture, dirt/debris in the bathroom sink. It really is in desperate need of a massive renovation. The common areas are getting very dingy and tattered as well. It is not really... More

This DIRTY place should not charge the rates that they do! After reading all the mixed reviews I decided to roll the dice, thank goodness it was only one night. The front desk clerk was not welcoming at all. We got to the room and I was literally afraid to touch anything, let alone sit on the bed. At least... More

I stayed in this hotel based on the reviews I had read. They didn't match what I had hoped for. The hallway was dingy and had a bad odor. The room also had a very bad odor. The bathroom was very small, old, and the tub looked dirty. The curtains were filthy, the blanket on the bed had black stains.... More

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.
