I had no real issues with this motel. It is clean, the beds were comfortable, parking is free, and above all the location is superb if you are visiting someone at USC--a short 5-10 minute walk to campus. The motel has a retro, low-key feel, a throwback to a '60's-style motel. On the other hand, it is a bit pricey... More

Location and price are the attractions of this motel. Period. It is a short walk to the northeast entrance to USC. The only obvious extras are a small swimming pool, free parking, free coffee and a free (basic) continental breakfast. Housekeeping is indifferent. Deferred maintenance is abundant. This is not a family vacation destination. That said, office service is satisfactory... More

I have stayed here several times during the last couple of years. Every time is a complete pleasure. The location is convenient, especially if you have business at USC. The staff is fantastic.

It has a good localization and services. The team is friendly and helpful. The hotel offers some orientation about places to visit. The rooms are clean and comfortable. They offer all amenities necessary. The internet are free. The breakfast is satisfactory. They allow checkin early. The only problem is that the hotel is very expensive for a motel. Others offer...

I have stayed at this motel a couple of times and each time I was happy with the rooms. The front desk people (especially Josefina) are very nice and do everything they can to make your stay enjoyable.

My wife and I have stayed here several times since our daughter attended USC. It is walking distance to campus and convenient to several restaurants and entertainment venues.

Clean, simple. Kind of expensive at $150/night for what you are getting. Air conditioning worked well. Felt very safe in the area. Very short walk to USC's beautiful campus. Wifi worked well. Standard TV.

I stayed here one night with my wife and son for a visit to USC. The redeeming quality about this motel is that it's a block away from campus and is relatively value-priced. Other than that it's just your basic motel. I say motel because all the rooms open to the parking lot. While this is convenient if you're coming... More

The Vagabond Hotel is a very convenient place to stay if you are going to a concert at the nearby Shrine Auditorium. It is only two blocks away and makes getting to a show stress-free. The location, and the fact that they have a parking lot to park the rental car, was the prime reason we chose to stay here.... More
