We have stayed in quite a variety of hotels and inns during our travels and the Vagabond Inn is exactly what I expected. Listed as one of the cheapest places on Expedia in the San Diego area, you can't expect extravogance but the Vagabond Inn was nicely accomodating. We were able to check in late on Friday night. The staff... More

Clean and front desk clerk was very efficient. A bit disappointed the Hotel Circle area has not been well maintained. Room smelled old but it was a good value. A good renovation would likely increase revenue.

Stephen was a great help checking my husband and I in. Very friendly, accommodating, and knowledgeable. My husband and I have stayed at the jacuzzi suite at the Vagabond several times when we celebrate anniversaries, or birthdays, or want a night away with a jacuzzi. The jacuzzi tub in the room is spacious, the bed are comfortable, and the curtains... More

The staff was really nice and helpful (especially Stephen, who checked us in), and our room was clean, but the hotel in general was not very nice. There was no breakfast because of construction and the pool was dirty, but the price was good.

Moved recently into town and are staying in Vagabond. Really nice facility. Clean and organized. Some construction outside, but that's everywhere in SD. Stephen was the one who greeted us. He was very friendly and helpful. He was very efficient and professional~!! An assett to this hotel. Glad to be here and would stay here again in the future.

It was a good experience & will definitely suggest this location to others. Although there were a few areas of concern, we were overall pleased with our stay. Rooms were spacious and appreciate the upgrade to two beds instead of one.

We needed a place to stay for near UCSD hospital that took dogs. Also we wanted a place with kitchenette so we could cook as we'd be there a month. We booked a room supposedly on the ground floor for $1400. When we arrived we were informed the units with kitchen were all on the upper floors and only units... More
