I came for a business trip from Wichita (you know, the up at 4A to catch a flight kind of day). Had a great, long day in San Diego and needed a place to stay overnight. I thought of Vagabond because of the Point Loma Seafood Company next door (it's great!). When I arrived, Joshua was super-friendly and helpful (what's... More

I was visiting my nephew who was stationed at Point Loma and found this quaint old style motel on line. It was very reasonably priced ($64/night) and for California that is unheard of. It was off season but still it was a good price. I did not expect a whole lot and was pleasantly surprised. The rooms have all been... More

I live in Baja California and travel at least 4 times a year to San Diego. I always stay here, often for several weeks at a time. Why do I keep returning? The staff are wonderful...helpful, accommodating, cheerful. I've seen them go out of their way to help other residents who needed support and assistance. By now, they know me,... More

If your fishing a long range trip or even just a day then this is a decent place to stay. Your right there with the boats. The continental breakfast was very good and plenty for everyone. Front desk was very polite and I plan on staying there again.

We stayed here before and after our live-aboard scuba diving trip that left from H&M Landing. I think we even got a little bit of a discount on the room by mentioning that we boarding a boat at H&M. It was very convenient to be that close to H&M. The hotel looks a little dated, but the rooms have been... More

It was close the H & N Landing, where I boarded a dive boat. The bathroom window wouldn't shut all the way and lock. They rigged it so that it would only open a couple inches, however, the fix didn't quite make me feel completely safe, as I was on the ground floor. It has been recently remodeled, the wood... More

Thank you for your business and Review Jared. I apologize for the functionality issues you encountered in the guestroom. We typically do not have a coffee make and remote sensor malfunction, much less in the same guestroom at the same time. The refrigerator can be annoying when the compressor is running, it may have been turned to a low temperature.... More

The hotel is conviently located near the marina, restaurants, parks & shopping. My husband & I had a weekend of activities in San Diego on this particular weekend and after calling all the big hotels with no luck I called the Vagabond!! Thankfully they had a vacancy.

I had been staying at e Dolphin Motel for a couple of nights and a friend told about the Vagabond. I walked down the street to check it out and was happy with what I saw. The cost of a room was about ten dollars more than The Dolphin but I liked having the pool, better wi-fi, and a nicer... More

I was heading out to sea the next day so I was looking for value and location. There is a fabulous seafood market and restaurant in front by the water at Point Loma. You can't go wrong with anything you order. The hotel mentioned morning buffet, that's not the right word to describe it. However, above all else It was... More

This seems like a standard motel but it was a really nice room. Super clean and new fixtures in the bathroom. I booked directly with the hotel and I think that's a good idea. We stayed 4 nights and I was sad to go. It's walking distance to Shelter Island, which turned out to be a great place to walk.... More
