“Mouse house 2”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012

Yes I saw a mouse as well. Not scared of them, but it will make the place smell more than it already does. Loved the psychodelic carpet!!! 70's is back in fashion!!! Darn it, should have taken a photo. The continental breakfast was not refilled and we arrived an hour before the 10am finish. All that was left was a half eaten croissant and those soggy pastries wrapped in plastic. Yes we didn't pay a lot, but in comparison it was not up to scratch against the other similarly priced places. Check in and check out was slower than usual as well.
There seemed to be plenty of parking and it was close to 1st Avenue which had lots of places to eat.

Terrible hotel. It is not clean at all. We found a big spider inside the sheets. Vera loudy. You can find much better at the same price. Wifi doesn't work. Breakfast is terrible. We won't come again in any other vagabond hotel.

before i booked on internet, i have spoken with expidia(i believe.., now i have to deal with 3 vendors who just 'SOORY FOR MY INCONVINIENCE BUT CANT HELP NOW>>!!!)
MY AAA CREDIT CARD WAS IGNORDED TO GET DISCOUNT but now is the only responsible party to help with getting a discount for not deliver what was promissed.
i was assured i will have refrigerator , microway , complimentary brackfast and clean bed and room.
we were told that there is no refrigerator and microway is not even in the whole place
i could have refrigarator for additional $5 a day.

We tried to explain what would help, like :some milk for coffee,cerial or otmeal but we got some fatt free milk only
crossaunts were fresh but nothing to put on!!!

oh, the terrible smell on hall was difficult to walk ..

on webside they offer more but reality is different.
you cant print the all page with what they promiss you!! its removed authomaticly from print
nobody is responsible...if no more bananas and you complain you hear from menager_"i am only one and i have to be in front and back, i cant overlook everything.
there is no plastic spoon or fork ha ha ...doesnt have own usage anyway
parking is not gwaranteed

This was a room for the Long Beach Marathon, this hotel is closer then the parking for the race! The hotel staff are very kind and accommodating to us racers. They put the breakfast (which is very basic) out early. They allowed late check out (almost 2pm) Will stay here again next year

We stayed here recently for the Long Beach Marathon. Great location near the start and finish lines. They allow pets for $10 which was a huge plus for us. Elevator was convenient and rightfully placed. The front desk staff were polite and responsive. We checked out one night early without penalty. Within walking distance of Roscoes Chicken and Waffles and a Vons. Otherwise, not a good choice for a hotel. It's in dire need of remodeling, and there is mold and mysterious staining everywhere. There was hair in the bed. The toilet leaked all night. Burning smell when heater used. The bolt lock for the adjoining room was unlocked and the condition of the door so bad that it could not even be locked! Thank goodness I had my guard dog! It's in the ghetto and there were security/police on our floor at 1am on walkie talkies. Poor water pressure and cheaply maintained plumbing. Our sink's knobs both said HOT, lol! No iron in the room. Smell of marijuana.

Now the PARKING!! Not enough. The owner told us to park at Chevron. Chevron owner said we had to come back in an hour and then sign a liability form. Forget that, we waited back at Vagabond for some sucker to leave which happened. In the morning, all cars are blocked in valet style. I feel bad for the staff here. They must deal with unhappy patrons every weekend.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

Stayed one night before running the Long Beach half-marathon. Well located within walking distance of the expo and the start line. Spacious room and bathroom. Outdated carpeting and decor, but can't expect too much for this price. Complimentary WiFi, continental breakfast and parking. There is a safe in the room. Very slow check-in process.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2012

The bathroom was really clean and not scary. The carpet is a hideous color. Considering other reviews, we brought our own linens but the bedding didn't look scary either. The location was good. It's near Hamburger Mary's, the Long Beach Diner and I could see the sign for Roscoe's Chicken and Waffle. It's just a couple of short blocks to walk to Ocean Blvd where you can catch the free Passport Long Bch shuttle which will take you to downtown, the Queen Mary and other attractions. I would feel fine staying there for a night or two. My friend said the pool looked clean.
