“The end of the day through Death Valley”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

We spent the day driving across Death Valley and visiting many viewpoints. I booked this motel room based on the reviews and the price. It was clean, comfortable and included continental breakfast. I thought the bed might be a little soft, but I slept very well. We had car trouble (brakes and transmission) in Death Valley and needed a mechanic when we got to Ridgecrest. Penny, the receptionist found us a shop that was open on Sat and could fix the car before noon. It saved our vacation. There was a very good restaurant right next door. We stayed another night just to rest and sightsee in the area.

The Vagabond Inn recently remodeled and it's cleaner, more comfortable than before. It has the things you need including a microwave, refrigerator, hair dryer, iron in the rooms. The sheets, beds and pillows are comfortable and I sleep well when I am there. I have stayed at some of the other motels in Ridgecrest and I feel Vagabond Inn is the best deal. Elsa, the new manager, is really sweet. She is a bubbly personality who is helpful and she asks for feedback in attempt to improve your experience.

The Vagabond Inn was clean and comfortable. I stayed on my way to Reno. Elsa, the New Manager was very helpful. Continental Breakfast was very nice. It had Cereals, Cinnamon Rolls, Muffins and Fresh Fruit. I would stay here again.
The Pictures on the tripAdvisor was old ones, the breakfast looks better than those on the website.
