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....

The Vagabond Inn is not the fanciest place to stay in Whittier but offers solid motel-style amenities at a fair price: fridge, microwave, wi-fi, tv, comfortable bed, attractive decor, clean room and bath, hospitable and responsive staff. On the usual downside: lackluster "continental" breakfast, noisy air unit. Overall, no complaints (well, maybe the gross old boots that sat on the... More

We must have been given a room that was in the process of renovation. (Room 306). The room was very musty when we arrived, but we just opened the (what seemed to be new) window and turned on the pleasantly quiet air conditioning. The smell dissipated fairly quickly. The light on the phone was blinking upon arrival (we expected the... More

Room looked updated. Beds were very comfortable, pool looked nice. Breakfast in the morning was just continental, but it was good. Overall good service. Room had a flat screen T.V. and nice shower heads.

Really, at this price point, it is better than would be expected. Recently updated rooms and clean, which is my most important criteria. Only complaint would be that the nice man at the front desk had no clue as to the area. The only places he knew to eat at were Polly's (which despite being obviously closed due to a... More

Basic chain motel...clean, but with awful continental breakfast. Coffee in room, free wifi, etc. I'd stay again, just because it's cheap. Relatively quiet despite being on major street. Try to get a room on top floor and away from elevator to avoid being disturbed by late night arrivals.
