Our favorite area hotel is undergoing renovations plus the Vagabond Inn was conveniently located to our destination; The Shrine Auditorium. For the price and location I was not expecting much so in that spirit, we were pleasantly surprised. It is clean, ample parking, fast and friendly staff... our room smelled a bit like stale smoke which I really didn't mind,... More

The only reason I can think to stay here is that it is within walking distance to USC. Very noisy, needs remodeled not very clean. Both bathroom and tub sinks extremely slow and took 2 days to have someone fix. There are many restaurants and a pharmacy within walking distance. Wifi does not work well.

If you're just looking for a semi-cheap place near the USC campus, this is for you. If you want any amenity advertised, find a different place. Not my choice to stay here as I had a gig nearby. They state that continental breakfast is included with the room. What actually happens is they put out some store bagels and doughnuts,... More

This is overpriced for what you get, but the trade of is location location location. If you are visiting USC it is about the only motel that is close and even close to being affordable. In our room, there was mold around the windows to the shower, the carpets were stained and the sheer curtains were so old that they... More

A wonderful location for visiting a child at College, decent restaurants nearby and pretty convenient for public transportation. The palm trees around the parking lot and pool add to the ambiance. The rooms are clean and functional and the breakfast is basic and very convenient.

Positives: Location is good in Figueroa street. Pricey for it's quality but comparably cheaper than most other hotels in that area. Bed was comfortable and clean bathroom with hot showers Negatives: A strong old motel smell which is a big turn off hence rated it as poor, ensure you come with a room spray. Very dirty and mediocre functioning old... More

We were having a horrible start to our day, but JOANNA went above and beyond and helped put smiles on our faces. We were so grateful. She even let me give her a hug ... I was so appreciative of her kind words and actions.
