Speed on internet is in kbps. The phone does not work even to make toll free calls. I offered to pay and use... More

I used this hotel for a couple nights a week for six months while I was consulting in Mt. View. Mr. Patel and staff were friendly and helpful. The hotel is older but the price is very reasonable considering the area. They are beginning to upgrade the rooms with new carpeting, bathrooms, LED lighting, and in-wall USB ports. The rooms...

We found this hotel had a Hawaiian flavour, with the palmtrees and decor in the entrance. We liked the gardens and pool, and the breakfast was good. Only stayed one night, and can't comment on the service as not really tested.

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
