Pro:
Clean hotel with a good view from the door of the room (the organization of the hotel is like a motel).
Bedroom and bathroom are standard.
The toilet flush is like to the one present in an airplane. :-)

Con:
The breakfast: it was very poor and served in a very small room: it is practically impossible to sit down.
The WIFI: The connection was always intermittent.
Moreover, in the first days, the room smells of disinfectant too much.

Room Tip: Pro: Clean hotel with a good view from the door of the room (the organization of the hotel is like...

Last two times I have stayed here have been very good. It seems like there's new management because the place is so well ran and much better than in the past. People at the front desk are very nice and rooms are clean. Budget priced and fairly close to Palm Springs attractions. Only downside is that air conditioning is not the best.

Just a short walk from the downtown restaurants, bars and nightlife, the Vagabond Inn will be our "go-to" place to stay in Palm Springs. It is CHEAP, clean, well run, has a wonderful heated pool and big hot tub. The FREE breakfast is basic but perfectly adequate, and good coffee too! The front desk staff were very helpful when i needed to get emails printed and faxes sent. I repeat, this is a BUDGET stay, do not expect all the trappings of a 5 star resort, and you will not be disappointed.

I made reservations for visiting relatives during Christmas holiday time and upon their arrival several police cars were on the property and looking in one room. Hotel staff would not give any info about circumstances making the situation uncomfortable. Upon their checkout still could get no info.

We had a nice doubleroom on the third floor and it had all the amenities that we needed. Tv, coffee maker, microwave, fridge and free wifi. It was spacious and clean, but could use an update. The wifi connection was bad, but we didn't care. Just make sure you do not get a room too far away from the router. Wherever it may be placed. Maybe they need more of those?

We stayed at the Vagabond Inn Nov. 4-9, 2013 and certainly have nothing to complain about. While the room could use some updating (tv, drapes) it had a spacious bathroom, microwave, fridge and was very clean. The front desk staff were just excellent - very knowledgeable and accommodating. The breakfast was all we needed. The price was right and we would stay again.

The room and bathroom were both clean and spacious. The TV and the wifi worked. The spa pool was nice at night. The even leave spa/pool towels in the room. The ice machine and coffee makers inside the rooms worked too. In the morning, they have free coffee with a few bites by the pool. For Palm Springs, this was a decent find when arriving at night.
