My wife and I booked several nights at this hotel (directly by calling the front desk) for our one-week stay in the San Diego area, and we were so disappointed with the room and service that we checked out the next day. First of all, the pictures we saw online of the rooms were a huge overestimation- they look like... More

Nice and clean. Amenities included an iron, iron board, micro wave, refrigerator, safe, TV, air conditioner, toiletries, and breakfast. No hair dryer, but I rather have a fridge and micro wave than a hair dryer. Friendly staff. Booked our family two rooms next to each other without asking.

Stayed the weekend and things started bad from the start: Got a call stating that our CC declined so they will cancel our reservation ( got a new CC after making reservations, and didn't expect them to charge us before we got there).

Can't complain about our room - a little bit noisy and crowded because of construction going on behind the motel - but we weren't there in the daytime anyway so it didn't matter. Breakfast was ok with make you own waffles, juice, cereal, and coffee/tea/milk. Got us off to a good start.

We booked a night at Vagabond Inn because Town and Country didn't have any rooms available for our first night in San Diego. I was a little hesitant because it is an older place but our choices were few at this point. We were upgraded to a Jacuzzi suite. It was very nicely updated with a comfortable king bed and... More

I had come to San Diego for a conference but wanted to stay a few more days to experience the city. I needed a budget hotel and this place was a godsend! The room was clean and cosy, the staff incredibly helpful (especially Leo and Micheline), and it was easily accessible to transit to get me to the places I... More

I was on my way to Sea World this past June. I came across the hotel phone number so I called them. I was able to book my reservation for a rate of about $70/Night for two rooms. I stated that if I was happy the first night, then I would stay a second. The Manager and Reservation agent informed... More

The hotel is really close to the airport and close to sea world and other attractions. The value was great, definitely worth the money. If you are looking for the economic staying with nice service, I would recommend vagabond inn. Btw, the hotel staff, Aarti was really helpful and nice for helping during my stay. Thumb up!!
