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

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... More

While there is no exceptionally special about these rooms; they fit the basic needs of the guest and are the best value for your dollar. The Free and Easy Parking is a bonus and the breakfast at on-grounds Denny's is even sweeter!l Hospitality is a priority and service is top-notch.

Under 100 including Tax...You get what you pay for....Bed was comfortable, Internet and Heater worked...Carpet filthy...Bathroom and Bed clean...Very Noisy as far as you could here the toilet in the next room flush and people walking outside...I'm sure this could be considered a No Tell Motel to some.

Smelly and dirty room. Comforter with holes and stains! Simply do not recommend this awful hotel to anyone! After complaining about the comforter, the staff said they are waiting for new ones they have ordered. It would be better to have none! The internet was also awful, dropping connection all the time. After complaining, the staff said that that happened... More

The vagabond Inn was a good basic stopover value. Clean and staff friendly and helpful. Denny's restaurant ajoined the hotel property. The one negative i observed is that the concrete steps to the second floor on either end were black from traffic; they would do well to steam-clean; it leaves a poor impression for the Inn.

My child and I suffered through three nights at this horrible inn. Our usual hotel was booked and we took a chance. The carpets in the room were stained, stinky and looked liked they had never been cleaned. I didn't want to walk barefoot in the place. Everything was so old and dirty. There were pleanty of fresh oil stains... More
