I stayed at Vagabond Inn Executive a year ago. It was good but not great. A year later renovations have raised the lodging experience considerably. The beds and pillows are comparable to those you'd find in high-end hotels. The newly refurbished bathroom was stunning. The staff was friendly and willing to meet every request. You can still enjoy a high-end...

Room was immaculate. Furniture not in yet. Just Wait until it is done. The furniture was not new, upholstered chairs soiled. It will be good, when finished. Room was very large. Hardwood floors, asked if rugs would be put down. Answer: NO.

The property is a little dated, but the rooms are perfectly adequate. The staff is helpful and friendly, and the continental breakfast will get you through the day. The hotel is located on busy Colorado Blvd., which is a main thoroughfare, so it gets a little noisy, but overnight is fine.

This hotel is probably a 3,5, better than average but not quite very good. We booked two rooms for three nights while we attended the Breeders Cup race meeting at Santa Anita. Our rooms were spacious, each one had two huge queen-sized beds and a good sized bathroom. Parking is free, the reception staff are lovely and the swimming pool...

The first thing I saw in my room was some sort of burn/food/unknown object right in the middle of the bedspread. I was never able to identify it and it made me a bit paranoid about the rest of my stay, but overall the room was okay. The room had the standard desk, TV, refrigerator, etc. They've removed carpeting and...

Wish I could give half stars as it's really 4.5 stars from me. Good location (but not excellent), decent breakfast options for a few nights' stay. Very good wi-fi. Clean, comfortable, good value. Enjoyed my 3 night stay. Would definitely stay again if I needed a good value hotel and didn't mind being a little way away from old town...

Facility is undergoing a major renovation. The room we were assigned had been newly renovated top to bottom. It had a clean modern look, a bit IKEA-ish. Shower was the highlight, with nice fixtures, roomy and sleak modern touches. Floor is a wood vinyl which I think is much more hygienic but somewhat sticky when walking on it. Bed was...
