This is an ordinary older motel - it's a 2 star - I'm rating it based on being a 2 star motel...not comparing it to a 4 or 5 star. I'm always looking for value, because when I travel I'm not looking for some lux place I'm going to be in just to sleep and shower. I'm looking at the... More

Stayed last week in the 'family suite'. Had two double beds and a twin. Bed room was fine-clean and decent beds. Bathroom was clean and had good water pressure. Sitting room was not so good. Furniture was old and stained-felt gross to sit on. Pool was dirty. Free breakfast was wrapped muffins, juice and coffee and some apples and bananas.... More

I needed a place to stay after diving the coast from LA to Santa Barbara and expecting to take a trip out to the Channel Islands in Venture. I just needed something simple at a good price within the area. That is exactly what the Vegabond Inn had to offer- a place to sleep. Just like the other reviewers said,... More

I've seen so many reviews that trash hotels, but at the same time, they got a hotel at a very cheap rate. This is Inn worked for us. We didn't want to pay very much and we got a great deal. We didn't expect much, but the most important aspects were there. It was clean and the beds were firm.... More

We drove from central California to LAX (3 hours) with two young children, ages 2 & 4. Our next plan was to drive from LAX to Pismo Beach along Pacific Coast Highway, another 3+ hours. Well with two kids our plan failed and we decided to stay in Oxnard at any convenient hotel. As we were driving on the Boulevard,... More

While visiting our son in Oxnard, we needed a reasonably-priced overnight stay. When calling to confirm an internet price I had seen, I spoke with Bryan, the manager; he welcomed us to come and see the amenities and upgraded our room. We were quite comfortable and felt secure. A bonus was a bathroom window that actually opened. We would return... More

After searching website for available hotels in the area we took a chance on this one. Was clean and tidy and the staff were fine. No prolems wit 'suspect types' and certainly there was Denny's next door which was one advantage and a Chinese Restaurant just up the road was good. No problems at all.
