The Vega Bond is a quaint Motel. You're not going to find fancy furniture or plush decor, or a large continental breakfast. some of the things that make me very satisfied with this place, are the rooms. They were very clean, and they had a pleasant smell. The bathrooms were very clean and the staff were pleasant and very helpful... More

We overpaid for this hotel. I knew it wasn't going to be a nice hotel, but for $96 with taxes (through hotels.com)...I expected a little more. Barely anything on the walls, some unidentified insect in the bathroom that luckily my husband got to before I saw it, old style comforters that don't get washed after each rental, and a really...

We chose this over Motel 6 because they advertised a continental breakfast. However, just packaged muffins are offered and nothing is out early. At 8:00 a guest had to ask them to put out coffee. The rooms are adequate but old, but no way justified by the prices.

This place was a bit less expensive than other nearby hotels but had the kind of perks that made my stay special. While it wasn't fancy, it was clean and the staff went out of their way to make my trip nice. Not sure why my key card kept not working but each time I was unable to get into... More

SLO has always been a favorite town. Love the weather and proximity to the beaches. The Vagabond Inn is centrally located, is clean and is across the street from good coffee, Starbucks. It has a friendly staff who make you feel welcome.

This is one to skip. Dirty room, oil stained carpet. Hole in baseboard (mice?). Continental breakfast is just a pastry, a basket of old apples, nothing else. Coffee out of the machine was luke warm. No one there at 6:30am to check out, door locked. You can forget about getting breakfast or coffee at checkout on Sunday morning. Which was... More

We have stayed there twice in the last two years and have alway had a very nice room. The staff is always helpful and for the price it is a great bargain. Will definitely stay there the next time we are in San Luis Obispo.

The bed and bathroom were both clean and well taken care of...don't know why other people had issues w/their rooms. Ours was top-notch for the price paid. And the Ramona Hotel is right next door with it's crazy interior and great bar. Enjoy!

The staff were nice and accommodating, and the location is great. Close to stores and restaurants and Hyw. The bed was ok but the pillows were on the hard side. The rooms are good sized but need some updating. Everything looked clean and neat. The internet worked good but not secure.

The room smelled badly, the carpet was so gross. There were people in and out all night in the rooms around me, I didn't feel safe at all. One night, there was even a loud party in the parking lot. I will never stay there again.
