Spent 2 nights here recently and think its a little hidden gem! The staff is fantastic, the general manager is very knowledgeable about things to do nearby and it's just steps from the gorgeous pacific ocean! Stay no where else on your next roadtrip to Ventura :)

I love downtown Ventura and you cannot ask for a better location for an Inn. Located directly across the street from a park, within a quarter-mile of downtown and with a bridge to beach access directly behind the property. The staff is knowledgeable and polite, and the rooms are always clean and well presented. The fact there is a heated... More

I loved my stay at Vagabond Inn. I took the train over for a weekend stay. The train station is within walking distance at the fairgrounds. There is a foot bridge that takes you to the beach. The downtown area is 2 blocks away. The rooms were clean and nice. The staff was amazing and accommodating.

Thank for the great review! You'd be surprised how many people come to Ventura by train. If you don't have much luggage, the hotel is an easy walk. There are usually Taxi's waiting there for those who would rather get a ride. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay, and hope you can make it down again soon. More

Would recommend the restaurant attached to the hotel amazingly friendly staff and good food, it must be good it was full of locals. I recommend the rib eye steak sandwich.... More

Excellent on/off location to hwy 101. Rooms spacious, clean, and priced fairly. Close to the Ocean as well. I would certainly stay here again. I was able to find parking for 16 ft moving truck close to rooms.

Glad we stayed here! For a terrific price, we got a VERY comfortable bed, a spotlessly clean room that even smelled good, & competent efficiency from the woman who checked us in at the front desk. Easy on/off freeway and a good location in town, close to everything. Only drawback was when the person next door took a shower about... More

Usual noisy 6am start by truck drivers. The included breakfast very basic but included fresh fruit however a pay restaurant was available onsite. Train whistle can be heard but then... More

The front desk people were very nice and helpful. The price was good . The room wasn't very clean and the door wouldn't shut without making a lot of noise. So much that the next door neighbor got upset with us for opening and closing it! I couldnt wait to get on the road.

Thank you for letting us know about the door problem. After you checked out, we re hung the door and re-painted it. Sometimes we miss things like that, so we appreciate when you let us know. Hopefully everyone will get a better sleep from now on. We are in the process of checking all of the doors. More
