Comfortable with a friendly staff in a superb location----close enough to downtown, but far enough away to avoid the noise. And the included breakfast is a plus and if you're not embarrassed you can take enough for a light lunch or snack.

Pros: Value, convenience to USC, staff friendliness, free parking Cons: Old and a bit run-down Executive summary: A good enough place for a bargain traveler who doesn't spend much time in the motel room. I've stayed here several times and it is the best value of places near USC. It is chiefly due to the relative value and location that... More

Vagabond Inn is very close to USC, which makes it a good choice when you need to be there. It has a motel-type setup, meaning two levels of rooms alongside a parking lot. Access to the rooms is directly from the parking lot. Lobby is a small space at the site entrance, where they also serve breakfast in the morning.... More

The location of the Vagabond Inn is extremely convenient for us. Some of the rooms are quite outdated, but each time we stay there we can depend on the room to be clean. The employees there are always kind and helpful.

I really wanted to recommend this motel. The staff was very nice, but this place scared me. As a mom travelling with a teenaged daughter, I was terrified the entire night. Our ground floor room in a dark corner far from the office had a broken slider window in the shower, as well as a broken shower control. The safety... More

Perfect hotel for weekend USC games!! Nothing fancy but clean, friendly staff, free parking and walking distance to USC. Great for football tailgating. Free WiFi is great & the continental breakfast in the lobby was perfect.

I stayed 3 nights in the Inn and found it very convenient in term of location. The free breakfast is quite basic and simple, while a lot other cheap and fast meal choices available nearby. There seem to be some long term renters living in the inn, making it a little noisy. Overall, I would recommend it to people looking... More

In Downtown LA. There are very high end Hotels and very pricey, and ant the other extreme there are very low quality and cheap Hotels. The Vagabond Hotel is in the middle of both extremes I really believe is the best value Downtown LA.
