Arrived a little early and was able to still get settled in a room. Parking was free. Rooms were spacious and clean. Sunrise and sunset unbeatable. Convenient to all the sites we wanted to see. Price unbeatable.

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?

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 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
