My friend and I ( 2 women ) arrived at approximately 10pm for a conference the next morning. At approximately 12 midnight the door flew open, thankfully the safety lock prevented the intruder ( which happened to be the front desk manager) from entering our room! He demanded we open the door because he said we were in the wrong... More

An amazing experience. Pretty bare bones establishment. The beds were so uncomfortable that my son (28 years old) actually went out and slept in the car and found it more comfortable. I believe a slab at the city mourgue would provide a more pleasant sleep. People in the next room could be heard carrying there luggage in and carrying on... More

This property provides good value for the money. It is an inexpensive "motel" in a busy area of Los Angeles close to USC. A huge plus is that there is no charge for parking, almost unheard of in LA! The rooms are very basic but serviceable. They are old and in need of refurbishing, but the beds were comfortable and... More

I must say this motel is no frills. What we really like about the motel is the location to USC when we visit our daughter. The rooms we have stayed in are clean and well equipped for our purpose. They are a bit dated. The other things that make this motel good for us, are the friendly and accommodating front... More

It was a nice and cosy hotel. The bathroom was kind of tight and pack but functional. Love the location of the sink to be outside the bathroom. The hotel fits what a budget traveller like my family and I. The beds were comfortable. Generally, the staffs were friendly. However, like most budget hotels, it has its flaws. The foot... More

We rented a room to see Radiohead at the Shrine, which was a block away. This was a perfect location for spending a couple days in wonderful downtown Los Angeles. Walking distance to the fantastic USC campus and ScienCenter. A short drive to the Broad Museum, Disney Center, Farmer's Market and Olvera Street. Plenty of room, free parking, nice hosts... More

Close to USC and fine for a quick trip. Offer rolls, coffee etc. that are ok. Big turn off to have people touching food with hands and putting it back. Given wrong room type but offer small discount to compensate.

For a reasonably priced motel right next to USC, you can't beat the Vagabond. The front desk was helpful and friendly, the room immaculate, and the parking easy. Not a fancy place, but just fine if you need a comfortable bed & bath.
