Although it is not brand new, I imagine it was new in the 60's when celebrities first started coming so it has a history. I came with my hiking buddies and we chose it based on location and price. It is clean, comfortable, with nice heated pool with jacussi, and has a great location, close to town and restaurants. True... More

There is truth to the saying, "You get what you pay for"! I have learned my lesson and will never book a room here again. The hotel is completely aged and it shows. It is in need of some serious renovation. The first room we got had a bathtub that wouldn't drain after one shower so we moved to another... More

While searching for a hotel in Palm Springs over Thanksgiving weekend, I thought for sure that rates would be high for all hotels no matter the stars. I was happily surprised that this was not the case. I searched various hotel rates over several internet companies and found the rate and amenities to be good. I researched the positive and... More

Spent two days and really had a good time in Palm Springs. Wonderful old vintage hotel. We were on the 2nd floor. There was a small elevator at the center of the complex which was nice in transporting our luggage. As with any older facility there were some quirks that had to be adjusted for during our stay. We quickly... More

I have spent several days at the Vagabond Inn in Palm Springs, CA. I have chosen this older motel on the basis of value for money and the friendliness of the general manager, Lynda. She is always upbeat and happy . . . a very good characteristic. This older style motel has quite large rooms compared to "economy" (Motel 6,... More

My husband and I love this Inn! At the end of the strip, near the Moorton Botanic Garden it is more rural than downtown. Rooms are clean, beds are comfy and the continental breakfast is to die for! Jean and Lucy, in the snack area, buzz around making sure everything is filled up and restocked. Not an easy task when... More

On the way to and from San Diego, we stayed in Palm Springs at the Vagabond Inn, and enjoyed it very much. The rooms were clean, the staff more than friendly, and it was a quiet area. The motel had a very nice clean pool and whirl pool, a place to relax for the evening while on the road. The... More

We stayed for one night for a getaway and it was very clean & comfortable!!! The continental breakfast was amazing and everyone was so polite!!! We will definitely go there again!! The Vagabond is also located the north end of downtown which takes 5 minutes to shopping and wonderful restaurants including Las Cazuelas Mexican restaurant!!!!
