Oxnard is a beautiful city about 5 miles from the ocean. the vagabond inn could use some upgrade. replace the carpets in the rooms and try to keep guests and visitors from congregating in front of the other guest"s room. everything else was very good.

We usually stay at Best Western hotels, but this was on a site catering to travelers with dogs, which we were, so we decided to try this place. Oops. The pool was closed, the room was dirty, and my dog was going NUTS about the smells. I was, too, but only because I could smell a bit of dirtiness myself.... More

The sign said free high speed Internet. ..it lied. Can't get online at all lol. Really nice staff. Room is clean although dated. TV needs upgrade as does the Internet connection. Nice Dennys next door. Close to a lot of shopping etc..besides the Raiders playing at the Cowboys training camp!

We needed somewhere to go after a long trip and decided to stay here to avoid driving home. we got in a little late and it was clearly not the place to be. The rooms were not that great, non working fridge, gross shower, windows were open when we arrived. Kids screaming at 6 am and running all over the... More

Stayed for 4 days in July 2013 and was pleasantly surprised because the price was very reasonable given that the Inn is a pleasant walk over the freeway to a nice beach and boardwalk, and only a few blocks from downtown Ventura, which is fun to explore. Will be planning a trip again in August 2014 and hope to stay... More

This is a great value. When we first walked into the room it was stuffy and smelled a bit musty, but once we opened the window & let the air flow, the smell went away. The important thing is the room was clean, & the beds comfortable. I always check the matresses wherever I stay, & I was surprised to... More

Only complain would be the drapes they are worn out. If you can fix this I will be back! and thanks again to the receptionist you were wonderful... More

We travel to the area frequently to visit family. So glad we only had to endure one night. We believe we are realistic in our expectations. We knew this was an older budget motel but appeared to have decent reviews on trip advisor. It was filthy. Grime and stickiness on door knobs, fixtures and walls. Floors in bathroom spots on...
