The staff was pleasant and helpful. The hotel is located in a quiet area at the marina and is located in an area that makes it easy to get to all the attractions in San Diego. The room was average for the price. Lot parking is limited, first come first serve. The only real problem were occupants prior to us... More

The Vagabond Inn - San Diego Airport Marina is an excellent location within easy walking distance of multiple outstanding restaurants. We stayed with extended family and pets for a two weeks that extended through the 4th of July weekend and Comic-Con. The 4th of July view of the fireworks was awesome an easy 50 meters from the hotel and the... More

Staff was very friendly, parking is a little small but other than that it was over all a great place to stay. I will defiantly be back to stay again. Pool was heated and kids enjoyed swimming at night.

It was clean but just super small room. If you plan on spending a lot of time in the room its crowded especially with kids but Perfect location by the boat harbor, right between sea world and the zoo.

Thank you for staying with us Tesha. My staff and I are pleased we were able to provide a great location for your family fun. If we may be of service, please check out our kitchen room, the square footage is 1.75 times the size of our traditional guestroom. We are grateful for your review. More

The hotel location was nice & quiet. The hotel was a little run down & old but it was ok. The front desk was nice & helpful. The kitchenette was great especially with 3 hungry boys! The bathroom was small & the free breakfast wasn't the greatest! I thought I paid a lil too much for what it was worth..

This hotel is average. The staff is great! The location is very good. Due to the location it can be VERY loud. This is an OLD hotel that has fine beds, a nice pool area & free parking. So, as the saying goes, you get what you pay for!

I enjoy staying here as I travel socially on a bicycle. This motel is centrally located to all my favorite places. Never need a car; walking distance to the best restaurants in the Marina area. My room is always clean with plenty of pillows and a pleasant staff. Small pool but warm.

We were disappointed when we arrived at the Motel as it did not quite live up to the hype on the website. Nothing bad about the place, just average and the rooms looked quite dated. Staff were friendly, pool nice breakfast good and excellent location. The only negative was/is the noise insulation between rooms. We stayed two nights and heard... More

Although the staff was nice to us, the place was less than mediocre. We found dirty pillow cases and sheets with hairs. The bathroom sink releases foul odor. Equipment inside the room were dusty. Carpet was dirty.
