We stopped at the Vagabond Inn, Oxnard on our way to Monteray on July 31, 2012. The staff were very friendly, the motel has some age on it but it was very clean and there is a Denny's Diner in the same complex which is great for free WiFi and they have some nice food.

To start - Oxnard, CA is not the place you would want to spend any time. We need to be in the Santa Barbara and I picked Oxnard just for the cheap rates and proximity. Big mistake. Spend 20 bucks more and look at Ventura. Now - the hotel is a typical cheapo one nighter. Very shaggy, dirty carpets, drunks.... More

The Non-Smoking rooms smelled like cigarettes. Shady looking people were constantly hanging out in the parking lot. Families that were apparently living at the hotel let their kids run/scream/bang on doors until past 2am. This place was miserable and the night manager did nothing to help stop the noise.

Within the first 20 minutes we found 3 roaches. Ruined our sleep! If we could have left we would have. We were here from out of town (sf bay area) for a track meet for our daughter. Stopped here to rest before traveling anymore, the meet was the next day. Highly upset! while in the office, 2 other people had... More

We only chose this hotel due to our Best Rewards card - looking back we should have done a little more research about the area. There were funny characters in the area - drunk people and soforth - and the state of the Hotel was not acceptabel Vagabond Inn standard! Don't stay there with children!!! Poor maintanance and cleaning and... More

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 were checked in by a very nice girl ar the front desk and the went to the rooms. What a great value! We paid something like 65 USD incl tax and the room... More
