After a good experience during the first stay a few years ago, I have had nothing but disappointing stays since. After this most recent, I will not be returning. It stated at check in when arriving short after 11:30p to find the lobby and check in desk locked and dark. There was also a couple waiting to check in also.... More

This hotel was old and definitely needed a renovation. The rooms were clean and spacious but the bed was not very comfy because the mattress was too soft. There were a lot of guests staying so it appeared to be very popular. The breakfast was nice.

After reading the glowing reviews, I was wondering if we had stayed in the same hotel. The vagabond in Palm Springs is certainly one of the most tired places I've stayed in since I rested my head in a five dollar hotel in Asuncion, Paraguay. It may be a bargain by Palm Springs standards, but it's time to tear it... More

This motel is very popular judging by the number of guests that were there. However it is very old and in need of renovation, the rooms smelled of cigarettes and the beds were uncomfortable. The rooms were a reasonable size and breakfast in the morning was good. The staff were helpful and the location was OK.

If I had lots of money I would stay at all the 5 star hotels. However, as a budget minded person I need to stay at places that are clean, safe, functional and yet affordable. Vagabond Inn is that place. Its not new but its good value for our dollar. We enjoyed the pool, the breakfast, and the stay. If... More

Clean basic hotel with good service and decent breakfast. The pool was large and one of the warmest I have ever used in a hotel. The room was basic but was well priced for what it was. My only minor concern was that the breakfast area was very small inside and if the weather had not been good (unlikely in... More

We stayed here for one week. An average hotel in appearance but very good value. The rooms were clean and any request was dealt with promptly. The breakfast was reasonable - the cafe staff were very well organised and kept the dishes full. The only comment I have is that there are insufficient tables and chairs for guests at breakfast...

I have stayed here a number of times and was concerned about some recent negative reviews. I did notice there were a few "rough" looking people especially in the pool area, but one must not be too quick to judge by a guy having lots of tats, etc. Such an individual was listening to his boom box while I was...
