I stayed at the Vagabond Inn because all other options were either non-existed or were $400-$500 a night for a not-so-fancy hotel. I found this property to be clean and well-maintained. There was a small stain on the bed spread, but otherwise just fine for one night.

We needed to stay overnight on our family trip to SF, so we got there well pass midnight and the front desk staff greeted us, our stay was pleasant staff very friendly and courteous- Dennys is conveniently located next door to the hotel.

Hotel was very convenient to access. Having a Denny's right on the property is a big plus along with a 7-11 within one block. Free parking a real added benefit. Free internet. Staff was very friendly. A little noisy due to the airport. Room and bed were comfortable. A very good property for the price. Will stay there again on... More

If you just need a bed and internet, this place will get you that, but not a lot more. The person at the front desk for my check in and check out was extremely nice and helpful. I would rate them a 5. It happened to be the same person on each occasion (late night and morning), but still a... More

I stay at the Vagabond quite frequently. I find it to be an average hotel. The rooms are for the most part clean, and the staff is accommodating. I am there about every two weeks. While the area is in need of upgrades, and I never use the pool. Which I hear is not heated but I do see kids... More

I took 4 bites and castaway bedbugs home with me from my overnight stay in this motel. Plus the carpet was filthy and the walls are thin so I could hear the neighbors and their television all night. Breakfast was non-existent: danishes in plastic, some whole fruit and coffee. There was a small fridge in the room. I didn't take... More

This place served its purpose. A place to put your head down for a few hours. We were there for only six hours so didn't really spend time there. Denny's is in the front, a plus if you need more than a continental breakfast.

I was expecting a heated pool and hot tub as advertised. The pool was not heated and there was no hot tub. The breakfast was only pastries and a few pieces of fruit. Nothing hot except the drinks. I expected a better experience after reading the ratings and was very disappointed.

The SJ Vagabond is priced well for the value and is in a great location for people doing business in the tech areas od N First Street in San Jose. The breakfast is a bit too pre-packaged for my tastes but is adequate. The entire property is due for an overhaul.
