This hotel is very conveniently located only a few blocks from the University of Southern California in Los Angeles. The front desk people have consistently been helpful, and there is a hospitality/maid supervisor Maria who has always been extremely kind and gracious.

we've stayed here several times visiting our daughter, a student at USC. You cannot beat the location. The rooms are clean and the staff is welcoming. A shout out to Maria in Housekeeping who always makes sure we have whatever we need.

Kat checked me in. She was polite and very personable. Parking was free and convenient. The room was clean, neat, and comfortable. Ricardo checked me out. He was also very polite, helpful, and concerned that my stay at the Vagabond Inn was pleasant, which it was. I couldn't have asked for a nicer experience.

Conveniently located in an okay, but not what I would call safe, part of LA. Old motel (about 1970) with well maintained grounds and pleasant staff. Aside from some minor upgrades (e.g., tile floor in bathroom) the rooms don't appear to have been renovated since the 70's. The room was clean enough (aside from old stained carpet and ants) and...

There are people who will only give 5 stars to 5 star hotels. Aren't we EXPECTING a five star experience at a five star hotel?? Sometimes it's possible to have a 4 or 5 star experience at a 2 or 3 star hotel. This isn't the case. I chose this place because as far as I can tell, there are... More

I slept on the floor because: 1. even though we had booked a double room, they gave our room away. The only room left was a single...and we are a family of three. 2. even though they had offered to give us a roll away bed for the third person, this "roll away" was literally shaped like a hammock. I... More

This hotel is within walking distance of USC and the Science Museum. It offers easy access to the metro transportation system. The hotel offered a light continental breakfast, but it could have been improved a lot by offering fruit. The hotel is located on a busy street, so request a room in back.

Stayed here early in March 2015, to stay close to the USC, the California Science Center, and the Colosseum. Basic hotel, clean, friendly staff, with banks and restaurants in the neighborhood. Great for a short stay. Would definitely stay here again!!!
