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. Now, I must admit, I have stayed there a few times over the last few years because my husband used to work for the company, but I love this hotel sooooo much.... More

My brother and I stayed in room 211 for 3 days during the week of 2016 Comic Con. The beds, bathrooms, and furniture were clean. But the beds were extremely worn out, which made it difficult with my back (dealing with pinched nerve), and the carpet was nasty. We wore socks the whole time, because the carpet turned the bottom... More

I found this property to be clean and the location convenient. The staff were 'ok' though of the 3 I interacted with 2 spent more time worrying about the youtube video playing on their monitor than helping me. The beds were comfortable and the linens were clean.

I stayed overnight here as I was dropping my daughter off at the University for a summer program. The building is very old and the property looks quite rundown from the outside.
