Since we were in Pasadena for the national championship, the town was packed, and we ended up at the Vagabond basically because it was available. We normally wouldn't stay at a motel-type place. It worked out OK, though. If you want a low-cost option that is acceptable, give this a try. If you're going to Pasadena as a visitor, chances... More

What a pleasant surprise! I was pleased that the hotel had a pet policy. I always travel with my two dogs a miniature poodle and cocker spaniel. My pets are my other children! The manager and desk clerk were very friendly and accommodating. The rate was very good and with my AARP membership card I received an additional discount !... More

Room was dirty and poorly laid out. Nothing was refreshed unless I asked. Not even plastic cups! Asked if they had any aspirin and was given the directions to Rite-Aid. Good Thai restaurant across the street and a long walk to the convention center; just under a mile.

The Hotel takes pride in cleanliness and customer service to the highest level. I will talk with the housekepping dept regarding this matter. I hope in the future that you give the... More

I stayed here for 8 nights and felt at home. The front desk staff of the hotel, especially Ashley is wonderful and willing to help all the time. Overall, my stay at hotel was quite comfortable and large credit goes to Ashley. Whenever, I visit Pasadena, the vagabond inn will be my preferred choice.

The Vagabond Inn in Pasadena is a teriffic value (approximately half what I would have had to pay anywhere else I was able to find), and a great place to stay in Pasadena! The rooms are very clean and quiet. I think the walls must be exceptionally well soundproofed since I noticed that my neighbors had their TV on fairly... More

If you're visiting Caltech, this is a great, reasonably priced hotel within walking distance of campus. The continental breakfast isn't gourmet by any means, but does the job -- coffee, yogurt (both regular and fat-free), variety of breads, some cereal, oatmeals, and even a waffle maker. The rooms are clean and well-stocked (fridge, microwave and mini-coffee maker). There is a... More
