I live in Mexico and go to San Diego two or three times a year. I've stayed at the Vagabond in Chula Vista every time for more than six years now. It has always been clean, quiet, pleasant and comfortable. Nice pool and hot tub. They're currently remodeling, giving rooms

The room was ok, they were in the middle of renovations so I’m sure the rooms will look really nice when they are done. The only problem I had was when I was at the pool and hot tub. They don’t have it locked for guests only and a homeless woman walked right into the hot tub and

Response Pending Thank you for the feedback, we are so very sorry that you experienced this at our pool. Please in the future let us know ASAP, so that we can handle this, we have never had any complaints like this, but understand that it can happen, no matter your location or type of hotel. We do have a locked gate and it is always locked at night, however during the day we have it open and our cleaning staff is going in and out, so it seems strange that no one saw her, however as mentioned before if you let a staff member know right away we can handle it immediately. We appreciate the ideas and the compliment regarding our rooms and the cleaning staff. We do our best to keep a comfortable hotel and it's great to hear we are achieving this.

I reserve rooms for crews for our business that are coming in from out of town. So, this review is not so much for the rooms as it is for customer service, although I try and set our crews up in decent hotels so that should tell you what I think about the rooms, they look nice!
