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.

Silicon Valley is an expensive place to find a hotel for a night. If you can get a good price online then this is an acceptable hotel. The room size and features [coffee maker, microwave, fridge] are good. The room has the appearance of clean, but it is only superficial -- carpet and table tops are not clean at all.... More

Having stayed in many hotels in this area, whenever I stay in the Vagabond Inn I am reminded of how friendly the staff are. Sure, the breakfast could be better but you also have Dennys and Hobees (to die for coffee cake) you can walk too so there are options. Location is right next to 101 and roughly in the... More

I travel to Sunnyvale one week a month on business and need a reasonably priced place to stay while I'm in town. The location was a prime factor in my decision. The rooms come with both a microwave and refrigerator, both essential. The rooms are clean, comfortable, and everything worked well; but the facilities are beginning to show their age.... More

This is an OK place. The room was fine: good bed and bathroom, microwave and a fridge, table and good chairs. The breakfast was fair: juice, toast, coffee, fruits. I am happy there, but this place is not "charming". It is also within easy walking distance of a number of restaurants and many businesses, and just off the highway. The... More
