This seems like a standard motel but it was a really nice room. Super clean and new fixtures in the bathroom. I booked directly with the hotel and I think that's a good idea. We stayed 4 nights and I was sad to go. It's walking distance to Shelter Island, which turned out to be a great place to walk.... More

We recently stayed at this property for 2 nights. The room was clean with a fridge, microwave and free parking and internet. It is within walking distance to the fishing piers and harbor. We enjoyed our stay and would come again. The only concern is the extremely small parking lot.

We had to book last minute and ended up choosing the Vagabond San Diego Marina. Not only was the hotel room very, very clean, it was nice and quiet as well. From the outside it looks like your typical run of the mill lower end motels. You know, the kind with no interior hallways and the doors facing the parking... More

Close to A LOT of major attractions. Also close to grocery store and restaurants. Good service. It is an older hotel with small rooms but it's clean, has VERY comfy beds and nice hot shower! We stayed two nights (family of four). We would stay there again.

Stayed again at the Vagabond Inn Point Loma. Great help from the Desk Staff. Very good free continental breakfast. Rooms are just average and definitely very dated but you can't beat the location if you're leaving on a longrange fishing trip. I just rolled a dock cart up to the hotel to load all my gear for the 7 day... More

I'm actually glad that this hotel looks pretty cheesy - very classic motel look. I think that it holds the price down. But while the green painted wood is dated, the rooms were very nice, decently sized, clean, no complaints. The pool was clean and comfortable, although no hot tub. One place that the hotel shined was in going the... More

We have selected this facility for our annual Foundation meeting for several years. It is clean, quiet, and accessible. There are several nice restaurants in the vicinity, especially for sea food lovers. The entire staff is very accommodating. It is the most central located facility in San Diego, thus permitting our members to do their sightseeing within the limited free... More

This is the second time our team has stayed at the Vagabond. They are always very helpful in accommodating our group, which includes requirements for wheelchair access. This time our group was 16 people; last time over 20.

i recently stayed at the Vagabond during Comicon. The motel was pleasant enough for our needs. The staff was friendly, the rooms were clean and comfortable, and the continental breakfast was convenient. The building itself could do with some updates and the facility is fairly basic, no frills but sufficient.
