Actually, I supposed to visit to my custommer in San Jose with my coleague. I returned to my home with good sales from your good condition and clean room. Whenever I go to San Jose to business trip, I didn't get your room 'cause I didn't make reservation. But from now I 'll do. Anyway Thanks a lot.

I stayed at this property, when the whole area was sold. I was very thankful when I found I room here. The room was clean, granted this isn't the Hilton, but like I said very clean. Rebecca was the lady at the front desk that checked me in and she was really sweet. She made me key two times because... More

For the price, its a good place to stay. Most cheap places have a lot of meth heads, but not this one. Con: the windows suck (single pane) so you can hear everything going on outside. oh, and they don't give lotion, only shampoo, soap, and conditioner.

Overall good stay, with some bad conditions beyond control of management. As I checked in, I looked back out over the parking lot to see a guy pull a "slim Jim" out of his pocket and proceed to try to unlock the door of an Acura parked in the lot. Lots of really scruffy people were hanging around in the... More

I had a nice stay at the Vagabond Inn. The room was clean, cable tv w/ HBO, free strong wifi and awesome service from Rebecca and Rosella checking me in and out. I would recommend this place to anyone staying in the area who needs a quality room for the night.

When I checked in, I disclosed that I had four dogs. The clerk at check-in informed me of the per-night pet charge of $20. When I asked her if it was per pet, she assured me that it was not. On my day of checkout, I was called from the front desk and informed that my charge would be $60... More

I had a last minute booking to stay in Bay area and no hotel was available, had to book at Vagabonds without much other choice for 1 night. I read the reviews and was warned that this is not a good place to stay, but I still decided to give it a try. The front desk staff gave me a... More
