We were in San Diego for a quick visit to friends and family and booked this hotel on a discount site last minute. The location was great---10 minutes from any major attractions such as, SeaWorld, The San Diego Zoo, Downtown, Balboa Park and Old Town, also within walking distance to the Fashion Valley Mall and a couple smaller restaurants.The staff...

I needed a room at the last minute on Memorial Day weekend and settled on the Vagabond at a ridiculously elevated price when I couldn't find a room for Saturday night elsewhere. The rate was approximately triple their normal rate, which is outrageous for a hotel of this caliber. The sidewalk outside the room had holes covered with plywood but... More

We have been and stayed at many hotels in San Diego. This Vagabond is by far the best place to stay. The rooms were extremely clean and spacious. The staff is very friendly and provided above and beyond any expectations of service. We will definitely stay here again.

I really liked our room with 1 queen size bed with bunk beds. They are remodeling & the restroom looked like it had been remodeled which was nice. It had a microwave, refrigerator, nice entertainment center with a huge flat screen tv. only thing I didn't like about our room was the carpet. For a frienly dog hotel I'd prefer... More

I thought this place looked cute online, kind of mid-century-ish. Upon arriving, I realized it's a pretty old place and I'd call it a motel...not an inn. It looks like they are working on upgrades such as new windows, paint, etc but it's most definitely not worth the $300 per night I just paid. At $99 per night, most wouldn't... More

Arriving after midnight, the check-in was quick and the front desk clerk friendly. First impression, the room exterior looked more like a building site with work in progress, creepy in the dead of night. However, once inside the room everything was new and super clean. New carpet, modern tiled flooring in the bathroom area, brilliant white bedding. The flat-screen TV... More

We have stayed here twice. The staff is super helpful and friendly. The rooms are very nice and clean. This is a great place to stay with our little dog. They have a very good breakfast. We would stay here again anytime.

Checked in late the first night. We were surprised to be upgraded to the Holiday Inn Express which had just newly opened. Helpful and genuine staff. Would definitely do business with this hotel again.

I just went to the hotel for one night sleep. The check in and check out process is fast. The service is nice. The room is big and comfortable. It is near Sea World where I visited next day. There is no breakfast when I was there.

Very nice despite the surrounding construction. The staff is very well tuned in to guests. And the decaf was good. I would suggest getting some milk for the coffee (creamer is not the same). Thank you.
