“Great place for overnight airport stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2012 via mobile

We were travelling to China the next day and needed a hotel close to the airport within walking distance of some restaurants. This hotel came up with my wife's research and it was absolutely perfect for our needs. Comfortable beds, clean rooms and 2 minute walk to the Elephant Bar where we had some excellent appetizers. The breakfast in the morning was really good. Eggs, sausage potatoes, waffles, muffins and very good coffee. Also right next to the bay where you can take a stroll down towards the airport. Highly recommended!!

My wife and I stayed one night to meet family the next morning at the airport five minutes away.
We arrived to cookies on the counter, 24-7 coffee and fruit in the breakfast area with a great breakfast the next morning.
Very friendly service. We will make this a regular when going to the airport.

Me and my wife arrived to frisco looking for a place to stay and we first went to best western rancho inn, which was a huge mistake. Anyway we then came to the vagabond, after reading good reviews and also saw cheap prices, we decided to come check it out. We reserved a bay view room and MAN! This room is great! Everything is clean, no stains, clean bathroom, amazing view of bay and thee most comfortable bed!!! Not to mention you get a balcony and it was all for 99 bucks!! Definitely coming back everytime we are in the area. Eat your heart out best western rancho in millbrae!!

I stay on the move and I always need a clean, comfortable place to stay for a great price. The Vagabond Inn is always my preference and satisfaction is always the end result. The breakfast is great, the view is great, the rooms are comfortable and the beds are fantastic. The internet is fast and the tv entertainment is Direct TV with unlimited choices of channels. I stay here all of the time.

The hotel is close to SFO airport. Parking is free.
The rooms are very spacious, clean and have all the necessary small things like shampoo, hair dryer, tea and coffee facilities.
We stayed on the side of the hotel overlooking the parking, so could not enjoy the bay view.
Breakfast is basic, but delicious. Staff nice and helpful. There is internet and 2 computers for the guests in the reception area.
There are several restaurants in the area but we did have dinners in the city to enjoy San Francisco more. However, other guests were saying that the food quality was good in the area.
Overall nice stay, comfortable and good value for money.

The Vagabond is I think a 2 star hotel. So, it is nothing special. Compared to other hotels in the area, it is one of the cheapest and they have a pretty good buffett breakfast. You can even make your own waffles. In the last month, I've stayed there twice and no real complaints. It has a shuttle to the airport and the driver seems knowledgeable on the layout of the aiport. Though I haven't stayed in those rooms yet, the bay-view rooms look pretty nice. But I would also imagine being so close to the airport, they are noisy. There are 2 very good restaurants next door. The Elephant Bar Restaurant is one the most popoular in the area. Next to it is an El Torrito. There are much nicer hotels but for the dollar and a 1 night stay, it is very ok.

Room Tip: For a nice view, request the bay-view rooms.

I stayed here 2 to 3 times a month all summer long and was really happy. Good location for me. Great value. Now come November I get to my room and it is stuffy so I turn on the air and soon I notice hot air is coming out. I called downstairs to find out that when its below 60 outside all thermostats only put out heat. This wouldn't be quite so bad if you could open a window, but you can't. Its not safe to sleep with windows open because they open to the outside walkway. Very frustrating because I couldn't breathe all night. I got about 4 hours of sleep a d had a 14 hour workday ahead of me. I will under no circumstances stay here again until next summer.
