Travelling from Vegus to SanFrancisco Bakersfield is about halfway and a place to spend 1 night to break the trip. Requested a non smoking room but the room smelt strongly of smoke could not wait to get out. Room very basic but appeared fairly clean. Didn't stay for breakfast didn't appeal. Wouldn't recommend it for couples or families.

I stay here very often and the staff is wonderful and I also feel very saff here since they have 24hr on site security guards. The rates are reasonable and the rooms are nice and clean...thank you Vagabond North your the best!

I guess it's not the worst place ever to stay, but the bathtub was all rusted out, the room looked dirty and there was an alleged hooker roaming around the motel, going in and out of different rooms. There is definitely a reason why we only paid about $40 per night, on the weekend, for this room.

It's nicely located on the fields, some 10 miles from anything called city. Yes, there is a gas station (as a matter of fact two) and a Jake in the box restaurant, but nothing else. The pool is small as a bath tub, maybe fantastic since it has a high fence surrounding and defending it. The staff was more interested... More

I stay in hotels 300 + nights yearly. This hotel is located close to the freeway and it is very easy to park large vehicles. This is a budget hotel and it isn't fancy, but you can get a good night's sleep. Overall, a great place to stay.

Average room, quite clean but really basic breakfast. Good if you are just looking for a place to sleep on the way to somewhere else as it's close to the highway. Stayed in a room on the side of the highway so it was really noisy.

I have always seen the vagabond and said who would stay there with a name like that. But to my surprise it was better than I thought. The room was big I had a king bed, bathroom was clean. They also have truck parking kudos to them. Staff was very friendly. I believe the TV was still a fat back... More

I was looking for a place to stay last minute and i found this one. It was a good price for a decent room. The guy at the front was helpful and he answered all the questions I had. Will be returning when I'm in the area.
