The counter is gracious, willing to help and answer questions. The room is not big but clean. The location is best as it is close to USC and convenient for eating and shopping. Overall I enjoyed the stay.

I was actually impressed by this hotel room. It's really dated, but it was very clean and the bed was really comfortable. I had a queen room next to the pool and it was a very large room with a microwave and refrigerator. The staff was friendly and helpful and they had a decent free continental breakfast and coffee in... More

Stayed here for one night during a visit to USC. Not impressive from the outside, but rooms are spacious enough and very clean. If you're looking for a less expensive alternative to the Radisson down the street, this is the place for you. With this being a motel, you get a bit more street noise in the morning than with...

I was organizing a group of 10 (I was one of the group) for an overnight stay in Los Angeles. I found the Vagabond Inn by searching online for an affordable place to stay in LA that was near to both our destinations. I was very impressed with their reviews that I read on TripAdvisor -- and now that I... More

Having stayed at the location previously, some seven-eight years ago, I certainly wasn't disappointed at all. Just as good as I remember. Convenient location to the college I studied at and other locations throughout LA, this was a great budget stay.

This hotel was actually tucked away and a bit hard to find - but once we figured it out, we were very happy. Rooms are clean ,plenty of parking and we felt safe. We have stayed here twice while visiting out student at USC.

If you need to spend one or two days in USC this motel is close and save parking fee. Motel is just ok, not the best hotel around but is good price, It old motel but look clean. Look safe, but it close to downtown.
