The Vagabond is always our choice for an overnight on the night before cruising out of San Pedro on Princess Cruise Lines. It always clean, there is a simple but adequate continental breakfast, the free van takes you to the port (just 5 minutes away), and when you return your car is still in the FREE parking lot without any...

This is the second time I stayed here for a pre-night cruise vacation. My stay was pleasant. I noticed that the property has had some renovations and updating since my previous stay in 2010. Check in was quick. The front desk clerk answered all my questions about the property. The room in which I was assigned was clean and comfortable.... More

This hotel is old but well kept up. Paint was peeling in some places but the hotel was clean. This hotel offers cruise parking with a stay at the hotel. There is a shuttle to the pier but you have to take a taxi back after the cruise (approx. $8.00).

I was in a party of 26 people attending a wedding. The staff were great and catered to our every whim! The place is older but spotlessly clean. I loved the pool area and the little bar. You could take your drinks out to the clean little pool or hot tub. Beds were good and liked the fact that they... More

We stayed at the Vagabond Inn in San Pedro CA on Jan 9th prior to embarking on a cruise. The hotel is a bit dated, but clean and comfortable. They have a free shuttle to the cruise port which we found to be a bonus. From LAX, it was a 20 minute cab ride and the hotel is only 8... More

Average only because the management did try to make it right. When we checked in the room there was no microwave, no refrigerator, and the fire alarm was hanging down. These were fixed shortly after we got in after trying to explain to the non-English speaking handy man and maid. The worse part was getting to the cruise port. The... More

Very good value for the price. Adequate room and accommodations, helpful and polite desk service, nice breakfast (in a crowded little room....). We were over-nighting for a cruise, as were dozens of other guests, and a free shuttle to the port was part of the deal. This was the only negative: one van shuttled 7 guests at a time and... More

I did my research asked locals and decided on a hotel I wasn't too sure of....I was incredibly surprised.... Great friendly staff, clean freshly painted room, beautiful view, beautiful clean swimming pool!! Great continental breakfast, extremely close to freeway and 1 straight shot to Downtown Los Angeles ...literally 1 freeway. I highly recommended for overnight or longtime stay. Thank you... More

Simply the worst. The room was dirty, and the smell of mold wreaked from the fridge inside. There was an adult store across the street and drunk neighbors next to the hotel that played loud music late into the night. Found pizza and beer left in the elevator several consecutive days during my stay. The elevator had not been expected... More
