Does a good value have to be at the expense of cleanliness? When we arrived the staff was very friendly. The location of the motel and surrounding neighborhood was great for going to an event at Shoreline Amphitheater. The room was of average size with 2 queen beds with a couch put in for good measure that was a hide-a-bed... More

Only 1 mile away from business trip location and 7 from airport. Rooms clean but basic. Did have frig and microwave plus Denny's in walking distance for breakfast. No issues. I would stay here again. Not much more to say.

We were on the latter leg of our 10 day family road trip to the Los Angeles to San Francisco areas. I usually plan for a motel a day or two in advance but got caught short for the evening in Sunnyvale, as we were driving up from Morro Bay along Hwy 1 with no known final destination (it took...

The Vagabond isn't awful but it isn't that great, either. The 60s architecture is hip again; it's so retro. But the rooms look tired. The bedding seems worn. Even the blankets looked thin. The pool is nice, but small, and no spa. (Hint to management: there is enough room for a hot tub spa. Add it! This is California!) The... More

We stayed overnight for a quick visit. When my husband made the reservations online, he requested for a ground floor bedroom. When we arrived, there was none available with a king-sized bed in the ground level, so the receptionist gave us a room with two double beds with no extra charge.. fair enough.. She also informed us that showing our... More

We highly recommend this motel. The owner also manages the property, and he clearly cares about maintaining it. It is not an exaggeration to say that our room was immaculate (even the grout in the shower was white). It was a comfortable stay. Beyond the great room, the management made us feel welcome and the price was right! It was... More
