“dont stay here”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012

Cockroaches in room. this is not what you want to see after working. The people was helpful. But cockroaches aren't. The prices are good, but there are other places with out cockroaches. Try Courtyard Marriott way nicer.

Stayed October 2012, traveled on business

We've stayed twice in two weeks time at this fine location. The staff is very helpfull, makes you feel welcome and helps out on any problem or issue you might have. In case of any demands you might have: they try their very best to match. Rooms are good and complete: microwave, fridge, hairdryer and strong airco. This hotel is the perfect home base for your daytrips to either the Channel Islands, Malibu, the beaches or Santa Monica. Do try Ojai too: it's stunning. For obvious reasons we returned again to Vagabond Oxnard; one of the reasons is because they recognize you and welcome you back with a smile. We've stayed at Vagabond Palm Springs too: it is as good as the Vagabond Oxnard with same sense of hospitality. Thanks to Brian and Wendi: thank you for making our stay so comfortable: we will return!

We stopped at the Vagabond Inn, Oxnard on our way to Monteray on July 31, 2012. The staff were very friendly, the motel has some age on it but it was very clean and there is a Denny's Diner in the same complex which is great for free WiFi and they have some nice food.

To start - Oxnard, CA is not the place you would want to spend any time. We need to be in the Santa Barbara and I picked Oxnard just for the cheap rates and proximity. Big mistake. Spend 20 bucks more and look at Ventura. Now - the hotel is a typical cheapo one nighter. Very shaggy, dirty carpets, drunks. They had the whole Mariachi band playing on the back alley house near by. Said that - bedding was clean and beds surprisingly comfortable. And when you turn on the AC unit you can't hear anything but it.
Bottom line: If you can - stay away. If you can't - you will survive with no pleasant memories acquired

The Non-Smoking rooms smelled like cigarettes.
Shady looking people were constantly hanging out in the parking lot.
Families that were apparently living at the hotel let their kids run/scream/bang on doors until past 2am.

This place was miserable and the night manager did nothing to help stop the noise.

Within the first 20 minutes we found 3 roaches. Ruined our sleep! If we could have left we would have. We were here from out of town (sf bay area) for a track meet for our daughter. Stopped here to rest before traveling anymore, the meet was the next day. Highly upset! while in the office, 2 other people had walked in to complain about the roaches in their room. Disgusting place! After complaining they acted like they couldn't do anything about it. Never staying at a motel again. I will pay the extra 40 for a motel!

We only chose this hotel due to our Best Rewards card - looking back we should have done a little more research about the area.
There were funny characters in the area - drunk people and soforth - and the state of the Hotel was not acceptabel Vagabond Inn standard!
Don't stay there with children!!!
Poor maintanance and cleaning and no really breakfast - only coffee and muffins.
Even the price for one night wasen't that good :-(

Pool was not cleaned either!

If you want a decent breaktast visit nextdoor Dennys - breakfast was a treat!
