I have stayed at the Vagabond over ten times now. The staff is great, the rooms are very good, and the quality for the price can't be beat. There is some construction going on in and around the property, so expect some imperfections but this is a good place to stay. Super clean rooms too.

Better than expected. Could use a blow dryer in room. Not enough parking. Front desk very helpful. We would definitely stay there again, as we have family in the area. There was a rowdy guy in lobby before us, he had no validity to what he was saying. Security was very helpful.

The room was nice and clean. Nothing super fancy but with everything I needed. I called down for a hair dryer, they brought one up in two minutes, and called back to confirm its arrival. They were on it! On our last night our key did not work and the key-fixing device had been taken to another location. This was... More

He is hassle free and very courteous,unlike the day shift guy. Honestly he is very approachable and kind. Makes you feel like you are a paying customer and not an inconvenience. He doesn't treat you with suspicion and sees things positively unlike the second shift guy

The gentleman who worked at the front desk (Luis) was very friendly and accommodating. He really made us feel at home. I stayed the night of Valentine's Day, and he even went out of his way to give me a rose to give to my girlfriend. Thanks to him I scored some extra points with her. We even got a... More

Thank you to Stephen who made us feel so welcome and accommodated our party of six with no complaints. The whole front desk was so helpful in all our needs, even choosing a restaurant. This place is well manicured and clean. It is defiantly the perfect place and close to everything.

Employees are wonderful. I've stayed here a few times & every time they're extremely helpful& kind. Older rooms but clean & quiet. Parking is tight due to some construction but we always had a spot. Front office was very helpful with my request. Great value & it's very close to hospital & shopping

Thanks to the guys (I hope I get there names right, Stephan and Luis) at the front desk .. my stay was great. The Orbitz website mislead with the wrong information regarding the room on their website, but the front desk was very understanding even though they were super busy and were they willing to accommodate me.
