We were visiting San Francisco for a vacation, but opted to stay by the airport rather than the heart of San Francisco. Our room was on the 3rd floor and over looked the water towards the airport runway. We saw a stunning sunrise, as well as watching airplanes land and take off. There is a walkway that our balcony overlooked,... More

Needed to get a room near by airport - arrived SFO at 10pm and flying out on next morning 10am - and had no reservation. This inn was available with $100 including breakfast, and able to book online right away. Very convenient if you need only fundamental inquiries.

First off, my bad for not researching the lack of elevator issue. I'm not against a little work, but carrying two bags packed for a 5 day Flying trip ... in Uniform, up the stairs was bad. Adding insult to injury, my room smelled like cigarette smoke. Not a smoker, so that 'stunk.' But the absolute show stopper is the... More

I stayed 2 nights at the Vagabond 'Executive' Inn at SFO and I can tell you there is absolutely nothing executive about this hotel... I travel extensively and stay in many hotels, both at the budget and high end, and this hotel ranks as one of the worst I've stayed in... This is why (I was in Room #231) :... More

We stayed Christmas Eve. Comfortable beds. Creaky floor upstairs and jets backed up at the end of the runway blasted across the Bay. I grew up with that, so I felt right at home. I'd return, but my sister is not so sure.

No showing of key card or using key card to enter/ open outside doors into hallway even after 11pm. It's a motel with room doors that anyone can walk... More

I had a very disappointing experience at this Vagabond Inn. I'm very no-frills so I don't expect much other than a clean, quiet room. I had read the Tripadvisor reviews on here and booked this place but I won't be doing so again. The bad: -We checked in at 4pm and our room wasn't ready. The VERY disinterested clerk who... More

Lose to airport and Burlingame. Walking distance to places to eat. Rooms good.nothing fancy just has everything you might need. Very clean and the price is below most hotels in the area. Would stay here again.
