I checked in with ease. When we got to the room we didn't like the location (last room on the wing and right next to the expressway). We went back to the front desk and she was very nice about us and changed our room. The continental breakfast was lacking but that wasn't a huge deal to me. I'd stay... More

I've stayed at Vagabond Inns before and actually this particular one by mistake as I wanted one a few miles away. I booked for 5 days. After the first night, I went in and notified them the shower did not get hot. I was told it had been checked - first sign of a known problem - but to let... More

We stayed here this past weekend for two nights (Fri & Sat night) This place is convenient and easy to get to. The clerk at the front desk was friendly but my husband was not happy that we had to put down a $50 deposit, refundable at check out if nothing was broken in the room. This was a new... More

I really enjoyed my stay. I wish I could have stayed longer. I got in late, the beds were clean the room was in great shape. Everyone at the desk was polite. The sink was a little slow running down, but it was not a problem. I would definitely stay at the Vagabond again. Thank you, and thank you.

The WORST place ever!!! Shady business practices and safeguard your debit/credit card information. Don't give it to them. We were charged over $656 after canceling our reservation. We were told the room would be ready at 1:30pm and we showed up at 1:40pm. We had driven across country and were extremely tired. We waited around for hours and they told... More

No, it's not the Hilton, but it is very nice (I'm there now) Bed is comfy. Sheets are clean and smell fresh. There is a microwave, coffee maker, and fridge. There's even a tub in the bathroom. There a lot of restraunts nearby, but mostly Asian. We did find a close Denny's (food was great) and Starbucks close by.

Carpet was old and dirty; advertised waffles and pancakes for breakfast and had neither; water for shower was barely warm in morning; reception person did not seem to care much but what can they do when everything is terrible?

There has been some updating to the property including the interiors of the rooms. However parking lot has some loose pavement and is in need of at least re-sealing. The hot water valve on the tub/shower faucet was not operative and it was not possible to adjust the water temp, although fortunately it was already set at an acceptable level.... More

I stayed at your motel for one entire week. when I checked out, I asked to have my name inserted onto the invoice so that my insurance co. would reimburse me (I had a fire in my home). (my daughter booked it for me so her name was on the receipt). The woman who checked me out was not able... More
