Loving this hotel, super friendly front desk staff that actually make you feel welcome. Breakfast left me full and satisfied, value was great, rooms were clean and a pretty chill location. My only suggestion would be to add whip cream topping to the menu to put on your waffles. That would be awesome!!

Bedrooms are really nice, big and cozy. Beds were very comfortable. It was clean, but I was really disappointed with swimming-pool area. Also breakfast was poor, not much variety, tiny space, with only 3 tables to sit. The person at the front office runs the breakfast, too. At the same time.

The front desk staff were very helpful. My husband and I were visiting to attend a football game at the Rose Bowl, we stayed 3 nights. We inquired about transportation to the game and was given various options by the front desk. The hotel is located in walking distance to many good restaurants. The room was adequate, clean, ac worked.... More

For two nights in September, my daughter and I stayed at the Vagabond Inn. It was adequate. Where in most cities $200/night can get you into a hotel, down in Pasadena, you get a motel. Located on Colorado Blvd, near to the Rose Garden, where One Direction was playing, it's location is the best feature. With the pool, surrounded by... More

I had read several reviews prior to booking so I had a pretty good expectation of this place. I did read one that concerned me concerning a customer not having any hot water--I figured they fixed that problem. Nice basic hotel with somewhat clean but older rooms. Had to move out of first room because the wire was pulled out... More

I stayed last weekend for one night at this hotel. It was my second time since last year I was pleased with the price and I was not disappointed. The room is clean and nice, and the price was really good despite booking earlier the same week on a busy weekend. Breakfast is normal (bagels, toasts, yogurt, cereal, etc.), and... More

We stayed at this hotel while in LA for the Eminem and Rihanna concert on August 7. We chose this hotel because we waited a bit too long to book a room and it was one of the last ones with available rooms that was in the general area of the Rose Bowl. We paid over $200/night for a room,... More

I stayed here the beginning of august to go to the jay z and Beyonce concert at the rose bowl. The staff was friendly and helpful. The hotel wasn't far from old town, if you wanted to walk it was about 2 miles. The room was clean. The bathroom was small, and for some reason we didn't have toiletries in... More

Finding decent accommodation in the LA area can be challenging. You can end up paying lots of money for mediocre venues and may find yourself in less than safe areas. This is where Pasadena, and the Vagabond Inn become interesting options. The hotel is well managed, clean, located right on the main strip, with the Old Pasadena in close proximity.... More
