Stayed again at the Vagabond Inn Point Loma. Great help from the Desk Staff. Very good free continental breakfast. Rooms are just average and definitely very dated but you can't beat the location if you're leaving on a longrange fishing trip. I just rolled a dock cart up to the hotel to load all my gear for the 7 day... More

I'm actually glad that this hotel looks pretty cheesy - very classic motel look. I think that it holds the price down. But while the green painted wood is dated, the rooms were very nice, decently sized, clean, no complaints. The pool was clean and comfortable, although no hot tub. One place that the hotel shined was in going the... More

We have selected this facility for our annual Foundation meeting for several years. It is clean, quiet, and accessible. There are several nice restaurants in the vicinity, especially for sea food lovers. The entire staff is very accommodating. It is the most central located facility in San Diego, thus permitting our members to do their sightseeing within the limited free... More

This is the second time our team has stayed at the Vagabond. They are always very helpful in accommodating our group, which includes requirements for wheelchair access. This time our group was 16 people; last time over 20.

i recently stayed at the Vagabond during Comicon. The motel was pleasant enough for our needs. The staff was friendly, the rooms were clean and comfortable, and the continental breakfast was convenient. The building itself could do with some updates and the facility is fairly basic, no frills but sufficient.

Let's see, it was a mixed bag it would seem - The good - surprising great/beautiful location and much nicer than an the typical 'airport' spot.

Great location by the marina and close to restaurants. The motel is outdated, and could use new floor and wall coverings, but the beds were new with clean sheets and comfy down pillows and comforters. My room didn't have a hairdryer, but I was able to get one from the reception. Breakfast was the usual high-carb continental selection, so we... More

The hotel was great for the price that we paid. The hotel was clean, but the carpets could use a nice shampooing. This was the only thing we found wrong with the hotel not being clean. The rooms are small but well worth the price. The location is great - 10 minutes from Mission Beach. The only issue we had... More
