Although the building itself is a little run down they have put money where it counts. The beds are clean, comfortable and the in room amenities are first rate. Fridge, microwave, coffee maker, make for a good week or weekend getaway. Continental breakfast is on par, friendly staff and a pool [which we didn't get to try] equal a comfortable,... More

Good size room with decent bathroom facilities. Comfortable big bed, wifi good. Good location next to Marina and the Point Loma fish restaurant. Lovely chilled atmosphere! Very helpful receptionist lady who helped with my enquiries so nicely. So convenient to get back to airport for return flight.

Didn't catch any fish but I did cath some Zz's. The room was nice and clean. The AC worked nicely and the water was hot in the shower. The coffee was fresh and the parking was good and enough room for my bus truck.

This review is 4 stars - based on it's price point. Otherwise, I'd leave the 4 stars for Hiltons, Marriotts etc. Parking is tight, but seemed adequate. Very small property - but close to Ralph's Grocery Store, and fast food restaurants - as well as the seafood restaurant behind it. No elevator. 2nd floor on the marina side looks out... More

My family had a late flight evening flight out of San Diego. I looked everywhere for a "day rate" hotel, and when I couldn't find anything acceptable I booked Vagabond. So glad that I did. Staff was very helpful. We received an early check-in and stayed in and around the motel for 9-10 hours. Pool was clean and quite nice.... More

Older motel, but beds are newer and very comfortable. Pool is simple, but clean with nice landscaping. Location is wonderful with Shelter Island, which has great restaurants and Shoreline Beach Park, in walking distance.

older facility but well maintained, room interiors are upgraded cosmetically. Located near the landings and we were there for sport fishing, so everything we needed was within walking distance. I would stay here again.

Toward the end of July my husband and I decided to celebrate our anniversary in San Diego. I immediately thought of Vagabond Inn Airport Marina for our accommodations.
