This is a very nice and quiet place to stay at. I've been there several times while on business trips. The rooms are spacious and very comfortable. Nice and friendly staff that take care of their customers needs. Convenient room prices and a very good location.

The remodel work in progress now is a very nice update to the room appearance. LED lighting has a better appearance and will also save power / eco-friendly. I am very happy that the automatic light switch is gone. When I get up in the night I can switch on the light only when I want it. Ceiling light with... More

The Vagabond Inn was one of 5 motels that I used over a 4 months period to shelter 43 people. This motel was by far the favorite. The rooms are large and clean, and the staff is friendly and accommodating. You can also get a discount at a couple of the nearby restaurants if you ask the front desk. Thank... More

It is a decent motel in a very expensive location, the prices might go up on the weekdays but still end up getting a pretty nice deal. The manager is very welcoming and friendly staff. Will come back in near future.

The Vagabond Inn Sunnyvale is located in a very high price area, so unfortunately this is the only hotel we could afford. It's location is very good, with easy access to the highway. The motel grounds are nice looking. The rooms are very dated, but the beds were comfortable and the sheets were clean. The bathtub was filthy looking. They... More

We booked this motel for 2 nights along with our 2 pets...a cat and small dog. Probably one of the most expensive hotels for pets....they charged us $25.00 per night per pet. That means for 2 nights we paid '$100.00 for the pets!!!! And both of these pets are completely house broken and the dog is quiet. Then there was... More

Rooms are small and had an old stale / musty smell the second I walked in. Stains on the floors and chair and pillows had torn cases. Would not stay here again. Plus was charged $359/night due to supply and demand. The only plus was the bed was comfortable. $60 hotel room TOPS.

The rooms are in good condition and relation to the prices. The noise level from outside has to be trained for a good sleep. The restaurant at the area is recommended to use for diner and breakfast immediately.
