This hotel is in a good location in San Diego. The rooms could use some updating, but our room was clean and nice. The bathroom was clean but needs major updating---no vent so quite stuffy in there, it didn't have a hairdryer (but I was able to borrow one from the front desk), the outlets in the bathroom didn't work,...

This is a good location withing walking distance to the marina. The breakfast is nothing to rave about but the staff is friendly, the rooms very clean, and several restairants close by. Also it's about have the price of hotels by the yacht club.

I understand that San Diego is expensive and sometimes people don't need all the bells and whistles of a luxury room. Based on the pictures and reviews I read, I was expecting a "standard" economy room, but I feel misled by the photos and reviews. The Vagabond has done an amazing job showing the hotel in a positive light, but... More

Great location and friendly staff. Rooms are a little outdated and could use some updating and carpets replaced, but beds were comfortable. Bathrooms are very small.but manageble. They offer a free continental breakfast with muffins, coffee, juice and fruit which was nice. Right behind the marina with some nice views and restuarants. If you want a decent basic room forvthe...

This is such a coze, comfortable little place a stone's throw from just about everywhere in San Diego. Super comfy beds and well-furnished rooms. The pool area is clean and nice, and there are many wonderful restaurants within walking distance. I will always stay here when I need an affordable, nice place to stay in San Diego.

The Vagabond Inn was not fancy but got the job done. The room was clean and the bathroom was refinished, although there is no vent fan, so it gets steamy in there. The best aspect of this hotel is the location. It's a five minute drive to the airport and a fifteen minute drive to Mission Bay or Downtown. Don't... More

A standard motel in a good location. We had a top floor room overlooking the marina. You are literally a 30 second walk from the water's edge. While the motel is old, rooms are well furnished and our bathroom had recently been refurbished.. Rooms were very clean and noise was not an issue. Room had air con, fridge, microwave, coffee...

My daughter and I spent the night at the Vagabond Inn San Diego on March 18th. The pics and descriptions on the website must be 25 years old. Both inside and out are old looking and show lots of wear that you don't see in their photos. The room had a strong musty smell. My daughter had to spray perfume... More

The rooms were very clean and had comfortable beds. After a day of touring San Diego, the amenities like Direct TV, microwave, spacious mini-fridge, cold AC, and cheap vending machines made for a relaxing evening. The rooms had plenty of natural light and the water pressure was great. The staff was friendly and attentive. If you or your companions need... More

The beds were comfy however, the room had mold and I have allergies to mold. The bathroom window was moldy and hideous. When the air conditioner was turned on it smelled like wet dog and I started coughing and sneezing. That was with a 3am arrival due to airline cancellations and delays. I found another place to stay that same... More

I am so disappointed to hear of your experience at our hotel. If I am not mistaken, we spoke and I did not charge you for the night you did not stay. Additionally, you mentioned wanting to stay with a friend as a reason for check -out. My team and I make every effort to insure a pleasant and comfortable... More
