Price is great. Location is great. Issues: "Breakfast" was coffee and muffins only. Faucets in bathroom and tub did not work. Had to use a plunger a couple of times during the week on all plumbing. Cannot take a bath. Hallway was stifling hot because they were saving energy and did not run a building AC. TVs are on timers... More

My family and I were in a hurry so we booked this hotel last minute. This was the biggest mistake I have ever made. First, it is located in a very sketchy area where homeless people and "interesting" people were walking around when we arrived at nearly midnight. Parking was in the back which was an even more scary area... More

Stayed for 2 nights with my parents, not too bad for the price but could be cheaper. They got pool, really close to the beach (about 3 blocks distance away). Also it is close to the aquarium, which I think family with little children will love it and people who loves marine life will love it.

Stayed for 4 days in March 2016, it is 5 minutes walk from the Beach and 10 minutes to the town centre. Breakfast was in a small room, with only 4 tables, and soon became crowded. The choice was very limited. There is a small swimming pool. Across the road is a Mexican Restaurant / Bar and there is a... More

What a sad little place. We waited 10 minutes for a clerk to show up to check us in - the foyer looks like a tired brothel waiting room. The door opened up into a seamy room with torn curtains and beat up accoutrements- and then they had the nerve to offer up their branded water at $1.50 a bottle... More

We stayed one night in Vagabond Inn. Our experience in a nutshell: Worst hotel I ever stayed. They have bed bugs, they have mice, they don't clean the room (not even the toilet seat) and they don't even accept to refund. Stay healthy, don't book this hotel! Short story long: First room: We found lot of mouse dirt and asked... More

I've stayed at this property a few times, and it's always been modest but acceptable, but so many things were shabby this time: non-working TV, minimally functioning A-C, stained furniture, dirt/debris in the bathroom sink. It really is in desperate need of a massive renovation. The common areas are getting very dingy and tattered as well. It is not really... More

This DIRTY place should not charge the rates that they do! After reading all the mixed reviews I decided to roll the dice, thank goodness it was only one night. The front desk clerk was not welcoming at all. We got to the room and I was literally afraid to touch anything, let alone sit on the bed. At least... More

I stayed in this hotel based on the reviews I had read. They didn't match what I had hoped for. The hallway was dingy and had a bad odor. The room also had a very bad odor. The bathroom was very small, old, and the tub looked dirty. The curtains were filthy, the blanket on the bed had black stains.... More
