Due to the Ventura Fair room price was doubled. Room was clean and very quiet at night. The pool and hot tub were nice and breakfast at the restaurant was very good. The hotel allows pets, so I will be staying here on my next visit.

I've stayed at the Vagabond for the last 6 years attending the annual cycling event. The prices have always been reasonable and the rooms acceptable. However, it's taken a turn for the worse. This weekend the assigned room had many stains on the tired carpet. I usually don't complain but this was pretty disgusting. We were given another room which... More

This is a very basic motel, so you get what you pay for. The main benefit is that it is right across from the RR tracks and the pedestrian bridge over US 101 that connects to the pier. They have coffee in the morning with cellophane-wrapped pastries as well as fruit. The pool is well-maintained. The trains can be loud,... More

Efficient check in. Our room clean, comfortable and quiet. Comfortable bed had a great sleep. Loved the pool area. Pool slightly heated and very clean. Lovely fluffy large towels. The stairs and some other areas could do with a clean up and maintenance but that is just an observation and did not affect our stay. Great value for money. There... More

Positive: cosy room, the bathroom is clear and comfortable, ok breakfast in comparison with other places' we stayed at. Right next to it there is a place serving fish taco. Delicious! Negative: next to the railway track and major traffic. The trains make warning signals when they pass by. However we were not disturbed by it during the night. Have... More

Well, not actually on the beach but a short walk across a footbridge and a little more to the Ventura Promenade. Veteran motor hotel mostly updated, clean, and comfortable. If non-smoking is your thing, request to see room first because some are reputed to have residual smoke stench even after being converted to non-smoking. Otherwise, it will be a pleasant... More

Basic but very clean. Check in was pain free and the lady at reception was very friendly and efficient. The inn is located near a train track but I never heard a sound from outside, possibly as the a/c was so loud! The inn is located within walking distance of downtown and the beach. Breakfast was a selection of fruit,... More

So happy with our four night family stay here. We needed dog friendly lodging but Vagabond was so much more. Desk staff accommodated our special requests and made coffee especially for our early morning departure. Loved walking to cute Ventura town center and our son enjoyed park across the street. We will be staying here again.
