I really love the location and the fact that I can bring my little dog but the property has degraded to the point I will no linger being staying there. Bathroom is abysmal with wall paper pealing and window not properly closing, mattresses are well past there lifetime, outside door did not have seal so noise from street was intrusive.... More

The Point Loma area near the marinas is a popular location with some pricey hotels and some real dumps. The Vagabond is firmly in the middle right near the water. Rooms need a facelift. Bathrooms are fine. Beddin OK. TV ok. Maids forgot coffee for my coffeemaker. Breakfast is terrible. Staff helpful but not friendly. Compare prices and this might... More

Clean, bed was comfy, needs upgrading. Rooms are small, no elevator to upper level. Not much in walking distance. If you just need a reasonable cost place to sleep its OK. Can't say the staff were very friendly.

This is an older motel-type of hotel, built in the 60's. Don't expect anything else. The rooms need refurbishing and truly show signs of wear. The breakfast isn't great but is certainly adequate (bagels, pastries, juice, fruit, and yogurt). Now, having made those comments, I will say that this place is a great value in a wonderful location. The rooms... More

The room was clean. The security lock for the door was broken. Too many electrical plugs were plug in to one outlet behind the bed. A total of six plugs and the wires on two of the outlets were bent severely. The heat was difficult to use and took a long time to warm the room from 60 to 70... More

We love our favorite getaway to Point Loma California. We try to get there 3-4 times a year. What makes the trip enjoyable is our stay at the Vagabond Inn at the Harbor. The location is perfect. Just ten minutes from the beach and 10 minutes to other major attractions in San Diego. The neighborhood is quiet and very welcoming.... More

I searched for a long time to find the right place for the right price. This place is very convenient and away from noisy freeways. The beds are comfortable and it is clean. I feel they gave me a reasonable room rate. I like their stay 9 nights and get the 10th free. I could walk along to shelter island... More

Confirm other reviews in that it is a great location, very close to the harbor. Dinner location recommended by front staff was excellent [Jimmy's]. Room was clean, comfortable bed and bedding. Air conditioning worked well.

The third motel I stayed in during my San Diego vacay and had a great two night stay. Beds were comfy and nice size tv in the room. Great job on room cleanliness. The only thing was no bathroom fan so I had to crack the window while I was shaving to let the steam out. Luckily no one walked... More
