Good hotel and good location. Quiet place with restaurants arround. The only inconvenient is a bit far from the L.A. interest places (1 hour driving more or less). I will come back to this hotel when I return to L.A.

My family and I stayed at the Vagabond Inn several times during the four years our son was an undergraduate at Caltech, most recently for 2016 Commencement. I've always thought it was good value. The rooms are spacious and come with a microwave, refrigerator, coffee maker, etc. They're a bit dinged up, but are currently being renovated. My only complaint... More

This place does have a lot going for it. It is very convenient both for Cal Tech (about a half mile walk) and Old Town Pasadena, about two miles west on the same street. The rooms are average, although I'd say the towels are much nicer than what you'd normally find in a three-star motel. It is a good value... More

Very friendly staff and the rooms are clean/comfortable! Centrally located and the shaded parking was great on a hot day. The beds were cozy and the room had a refrigerator, microwave and a big-screen TV! The free wifi and breakfast are a definite plus! I'd say all that is great value.

Our original hotel would not honor our reservation, 930 at night and no room. This hotel was next door. Chris at the front desk was GREAT!! They had one room left. He held it while we called "hotels.com" because of our last reservation problem. Hotels.com picked up the difference in price. The room was clean, the bed was very comfy!... More

I've stayed at the Vagabond three times. I like it for the value, the free parking, and the ease of coming and going. It is an old facility dating back to the days of US Highway 66, but it is in good shape with frequent renovations. A sign in rooms said to please excuse dust and noise from 8-5, from... More

The Vagabond Inn Executive is located within easy access to PCC, Old Town Pasadena, and great eateris of all types. The hotel itself is a style that dates back a number of years, and is now in the midst of a renovation, with some rooms being rented out as the work is being completed in them. The rooms are nice...

The room and amenities at the Vagabond Inn in Pasadena were acceptable. I was traveling with students and we had three rooms total. Two rooms had connecting doors, which was nice. Strangely, the place has false hardwood floors; I am used to carpet in hotels. But it wasn't a bad experience. They are generous with the continental breakfast and have... More

Upon arrival I wasn't expecting much. Some rooms are indeed motel (doors go right out to parking/walking area) and some have inside corridors and are accessed with a locked door using a key card. The pool was warmed and getting towels for swimming was easy. The beds were comfy and rooms have been updated. The only caveat is the rooms... More
