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 The motel is outdated, and could use new floor and wall coverings, but the beds were new with clean sheets and comfy down pillows and comforters.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

I had read mixed reviews of this hotel but I was pleasantly surprised. The room was small, but very cozy, comfortable, clean and quiet The two fellows in the office, Hector and Joshua, were very helpful and polite. Breakfast included fresh fruit, yogurt, cereals, juices and coffee---completely adequate. The location is fabulous---close to the marina and walking trails. public transit,... More

I stayed here for a yacht regatta. Not my normal choice, but since the boat owner was paying and the wife was not around, there was no problem. Rooms were clean and looked newly renovated. Beds looked well used but were comfortable and clean. Maids changed sheets and towels every day. A/C worked great and I slept peacefully.

We chose Vagabond Inn-San Diego Airport Marina because of its easy access to the airport where we had to pick up/drop off visitors twice in recent weeks. It is really good value considering the location. The second floor rooms overlooking the marina are very pleasant, with big windows that fully open. There is no elevator, so if you think you... More

Rooms were very small and a bit run down, but for the price, we had no complaints. Staff were friendly and accomodating, and the rooms were clean with very comfortable bedding.
