Stayed at the Vegabond mid-April 2015 for 2 nights. Very basic, standard motel in a nice area of Pasadena. Room had microwave and refrigerator which was nice. Breakfast was below average but it's nice to have a bite to eat early in the mornings; plus it was free so no complaints. Parking was free, wifi was free, room rate was... More

The staff here are very knowledgeable and helpful. Ray and Dave are fantastic and made our stay great! Free breakfast was lovely with heaps of options. Heated pool really worked a treat for the kids. Nice Asian restaurant across the road. Very quick to fix anything that you bring to their attention. For the price can't complain! Negatives: Castle Nails... More

I have stayed at the Vagabond several times and have found it to be comfortable but not fancy. It is clean and the management is most cooperative. There is parking and the rates are definitely low for the quality of the inn. Convenient Pasadena location and a good breakfast is served every morning. I am paying about $90.00 per night.... More

Room was comfortable, decent coffee, TV selection was fine. Breakfast is pretty limited, but good enough for a few days. I'm a bit of a light sleeper, and had a very busy few days of work. They kindly accommodated my request to not face Colorado.

Dave is a marvelous Host, knows this city inside and out, gave us great recommendations to some very delicious destinations. We'll be staying here everytime we visit the Los Angeles area. Rooms were very clean and spacious, breakfast is included, makes it a great value. Parking is free, well lit, and monitored (as explained by the friendly front desk staff)... More

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.

Thank you for your feedback in regards to your stay I'm happy that the room was to your satisfaction. I'm very sorry that you didn't enjoy the heated pool or our Deluxe Cont Breakfast. I will personally look into adding more items on the menu. The hotel does offer assorted bagels with cream cheese,white,wheat bread for toast, make your own... More
