“Great People !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013

Stayed here for 2 nights, 3 days. Yes, the location is convenient i.e. you have the Americana Mall, Glendale Galleria and a lot more of little quaint shops in between. Food places, Restaurant are all over the place and you get a discount at Foxxy's ( they serve amazing food ). Price is right. As for the hotel itself, a mini breakfast bar is set-up in the morning for guest, it's on the go food people, do not expect your omelet, go and sit down at a restaurant if that's what you want :). Rooms are clean, loooooove the bed, very comfy. Room size are just right. Very clean. Basic amenities are inside your room including ironing board and an iron, hair dyer, a mini fridge, a microwave, coffee maker with coffee/tea and all that you need to have a hot drink. Washroom is equipped with a tub and shower, Towels and the usual toiletries. You can ask if you need more of the latter 2. The hotel also has a pool and it is heated so you can do some night swimming. It has been maintained/cleaned everyday that I was there. Very quiet though the hotel was booked the weekend I was there. MOST OF ALL, I love the crew. They have a smile painted on their faces from the room maids, to the maintenance crew and the front desk. This hotel has an amazing team. Customer Service is excellent and YES! I will always stay here whenever I'm in LA.

Stayed at this hotel for the last 25 years. Glendale changed throughout the years, Glendale is a nice and convient place to stay to visit all areas of Los Angeles. The hotel is very nice, firstly getting here the hotel is easy to find and clearly marked. Good free car parking. Staff and manager really helpful. Rooms are very clean and have all the facilities you may need , these include an iron , microwave , fridge and a nice large flat screen tv. Free wifi throughout the hotel.

A nice restaurant next door where you can get 10 percent off by showing your room key. one block or across the road is the Americana shopping centre , a lovely area and great place to end the day by watching the fountains show.

Overall if you want a nice place to stay in Los Angeles then Glendale it is and surely yes stay at the hotel you will be pleasantly surprised .

Don't look elsewhere , just book it !

Service was great here.
Rooms kinda small but clean and quiet. This is weird but I did not like the sheets at all, I found them to be scratchy, almost like canvas material. It was uncomfortable.
The location is good. Pool looked nice, I didn't use it.
Wifi and parking are included.
Overall pretty good but the rooms are lacking a bit.

I have stayed there twice, in 2010 and 2013. I found the rooms of decent size and clean, and staff service prompt and pleasant. I had 2 small issues, and one after I left -- all were taken care of swiftly.

The hotel is located very close to Americana, where one can find many shops and eateries, and have pleasant evening strolls. For diner-like food lovers I warmly recommend Foxy's, which is nearby (see review elsewhere).

The Vagabond Inn in Glendale was our last hotel during our 3-week trip of the Westcoast. So we had some stuff to compare.

Pro's:
Clean room
Good location (if you like shopping)
very friendly staff
Excellent pastries for breakfast
computer and printer available (which we needed)

Cons:
Small room showing its age
Uninspiring poolarea
Just 3 stories of motelrooms, nothing more and nothing less
Limited breakfast choice (apart from the good pastries) with no room to eat breakfast than in your own (small) motelroom
no laundryservice

One or two nights, okay. Shopaholics: this would be probably be
a very good choice with two luxurious malls just across the street.
For exploring the rest of La (apart from Universal Studios) bit out of centre.

Stayed two nights on recent trip to L.A. Location is along main road with shopping areas, but also adjacent to quiet residential area behind motel. Our room was on 3rd floor in rear of facility. Room had mild musty smell when entering, but was clean throughout each day and the smell was not troublesome. Room included microwave + refrigerator. Continental breakfast was basic but had a few nice features (Twinings tea bags!). Desk staff were friendly. Rate was a little higher than we planned to spend, but worth it in the end - a pleasant stay!
