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.

The Vagabond Inn is located very close to USC and is walking distance from many restaurants, grocery stores and an a few miles from Staples Centre and DTLA. There's ample parking as well. The Bed with Queens Beds were good enough for 2 people and the bathrooms are clean and spacious. There is no water or coffee available in the... More

King bed 1 night stay. Bed comfy and clean, bathroom a little dated, but as clean as possible. Air conditioner noise a little noticeable, but we were so tired that it didn't really matter. Small fridge & microwave. Continental breakfast. Great location, close to USC, the Colliseum, and Staples Center & LA Live. Would stay again if the occasion came... More

The room was pretty spacious as well as the bathroom, the king bed was comfy and clean, the only downside was the sound of the air conditioning beside the bed. The self servie breakfast was the best, waffles, oatmeal, fruit, cereal, bread, muffins, hard boiled eggs, etc. I recommend this place for couples, not sure about families with small children.

Nothing like the pictures on website. Should be torn down. Horrible service. Stained carpets. TV didn't work. Air conditioning didn't work. No house service after 5pm. No manager after 5pm. Room smelled like mildew. Shower didn't work. Had to find another hotel.

The room above the pool was great! We were. Close to USC for our tour. We could walk to other attractions or ride the Metro. The room price and continental breakfast was good. The office and room curtiousy employees did a fine job.

Stayed here for the weekend of Anime Expo in LA. Had a pretty good experience overall. The only problem was the room keys kept getting deactivated/demagnetized everytime we wanted to go into the hotel room due to the card keys rubbing up against credit cards/cheap key cards. Other than that, they had good service and a good hotel room overall.... More

The room was large. Television was hard to view from the beds. It was on the side wall on the dresser. The area is very loud being on the street next to University of southern california. There breakfast is hardly anything. Donuts and coffee. We ate out instead.
