On a vacation from southern California to northern stayed at Vagabond Inn and enjoyed my stay. It was clean, friendly, organized with a great breakfast. I would recommend a stay at any of the Vagabond Inn hotels.

All the reviews about the lack of integrity of the staff and the policies are true. I wanted to come a day early ( I was shooting at the SLO range) and they said they could accomodate me. When I checked in she said the system will not allow her to add a day to my stay and I would... More

Convenient location - close to the freeway and walking distance to a variety of restaurants and a shopping center. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Room was clean and basic. Was nice to have a small refrigerator, coffee maker and a window in the bathroom to let in fresh air. The pool and jacuzzi are nice to have after a... More

We checked in very late and still had a good room. I have a toddler and asked for a ground floor room. They couldnt promise me that but I was happy that we got it. The room was large and had everything we needed for a 2 night stay, except a alarm clock. There was a tv, couch, table, microwave,... More

The location is good. Although it's right by the main road, it's not too loud. However, the staff there and the service is a disgrace. Unfriendly, to say the least. The rooms...are ok. To sleep there, but not to spend any time. Dodgy people, we heard quite a few people shouting and screaming at night. They advertise breakfast, which is... More

Not a bad place to stay. They would not let us check in early even if the room is clean already. I know it was already clean because they told me what room they were giving me and friends were in the next room over so I peaked in the window. But room was clean and bed was comfy.

Positive: Hotel is at a good location, with some restaurants in neighborhood (Denny's is just across the parking lot, it's a good option to have breakfast/lunch/dinner. Spacious rooms, silent enough to have a good sleeping night. Free parking. Negative: Breakfast is just a couple of (cold) muffins and coffee/chocolate that you must take to your room to enjoy. Overall: Good... More

This is my fiancé and my second stay here. The office staff are very friendly and accommodating. The room is your typical motel room. The bed is clean. I would like to see better towels, but again it is a motel and not a 4 star hotel. The continental breakfast is nothing to rave over; however you are given a... More

A little background, I mainly stay in economy motels. I always use Trip Advisor before booking, I felt that this motel was rated a bit more highly than it should be. We arrived for a two night stay this past weekend. There was some kind of police activity going on as we were checking into our motel room. I know... More
