It's a really good value for what you get! Specially if you are not a single person, that way the price is amazing! Very clean bathroom, a little less cleaner room(totally acceptable), nice view of the water-side if you are in upstairs room. The staff were mostly friendly. But you have to ask for every thing you need; do not... More

Older building, older furniture, but well kept. Great location for me, near marinas. Nice sheets. Pleasant staff. Better value than nearby chain hotels, even though the "breakfast" was unimpressive. Even with buying a breakfast, the cost was less.

Have been staying here on our annual trips to San Diego for several years. It's a great location, close to the marina, with easy access to downtown San Diego and the beaches. Point Loma is full of locally owned businesses and restaurants, including the highly regarded Point Loma Seafoods, located just behind the Vagabond Inn. Rooms are clean, if looking... More

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 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
