The Maids steal! Front desk service is terrible and rude! They kept waving my credit card in my face when I asked why they wanted a $150 deposit! Then when I asked for a refund they said the couldn't so I paid for a room I didnt stay in!!!

If you need to sleep on a bed that doesn't feel like a piece of cardboard set on top of a boulder, book somewhere else. My husband also had many bites on his body that looked like they may be bedbugs. We had to leave all our luggage in our car out in the sun for 3 days so we... More

The first thing you will notice the handicap parking spots are elevated so the slope to the walkway is minimal. We had a single queen bed that looked newer and newer bedding and furniture. The roll in shower was made from tile and had some slopes to make the water flow in the correct direction so the floor near the... More

We stayed here one night, between a rosary and a funeral, so it was extremely important to have a comfortable room. Not only was the room rate very good, but the king bed, the shower, and the flat screen TV all showed what a good job they had done in renovating the hotel. The bed was as good as we... More

It was a great place close to restaurants, shopping and close to the main highways. The rooms were a nice size. I will defiantly stay there Again next time I'm in the area. An inexpensive option but good quality option.

I really like this hotel . Clean and good service the negatives are: Useless WiFi Useless TV. Both kept cutting out. I am here to work and made things very difficult. The breakfast is a bad joke. Only junk food available. Having said that, I would stay here again if I needed to be in this area.

Rooms are clean and reasonable--nice pool too. Ask for a "stay" card when checking in---I believe a certain amount of days gets a free day. TV in rooms is also very good. Shower was something we appreciate and it was very good.

We were travelling to Whittier to our granddaughter's graduation from Whittier College. When my husband told me that he booked us into the Vagabond Inn, I was not thrilled. However, upon arrival there, I was pleasantly surprised to find that the room had obviously been recently renovated with all new fixtures in the bathroom including an ecologically correct state-of-the-art toilet....
