Room looked okay but the bathroom was in serious need or a remodel. Wall paper pealing off the walls. Room was a bit dark and 80's-looking. Hotel desk clerk was friendly and helpful. Denny's right next door. Definitely a low-budget hotel.

A special thank you to Chris who works front desk on afternoon shift for going over and above on a small problem that we encountered and made the stay the best! Service is everything and he proved that flawlessly.

After a few excellent Best Westerns we stumbled upon this motel. We were kinda late, and the place was next to a Denny's, so it looked alright at first. It wasn't. The girl behind the dest gave us a smoking room, but the smell wasn't too bad, we took it. We also got a 10% discount at Denny's, so that... More

This place was disgustingly nasty we read 'reviews' by the way they weren't from 'TripAdvisor and it sounded OK to stay one night on our way to Paso Robles. The front desk guy was very nice even when we went back to cancel our stay within 5 minutes of arriving there. There rooms were stinky the people around there must... More

Stan B. My Oxnard Vagabond review June 17 2015 I have been staying here at the Oxnard Vagabond for almost two months! I'm very disappointed with my maid Maria’s service! She comes to do service later every day. While I sit on a chair outside my room I listen to what is going on with my TV programs. More than... More

Not too bad a place to land for a few days. Overall had a nice stay. I wouldn't call it luxurious by any means, but very accommodating for a man working out of town. The nightly traffic was confusing but not alarming. A few homeless folks obviously lived near by, but never caused any commotion. A 24 hour Denny's was... More

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
