Nice hotel. Very friendly staff. Great location in Ventura. Close to so many fun places & great restaurants & of course, a very short walk to the beautiful beach. Great restaurant in the parking lot too.

This is a nice hotel Rooms are clean and staff if wonderful. Close to the beach and just a short walk from downtown. Several restaurants close by and a wider variety downtown. Even though there are active train tracks behind the hotel there really are not bothersome overnight. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

I wish there wasn't a two hundred character minimum in this area cause I'm just not that wordy. Well, now that I'm half the way there I gotta say that this hotel and staff are top shelf for sure. Everything is clean, staff is professional but friendly at all times.

Neat older motel with a name that suits it well. Friendly staff, coffee, tea and fruit in office area. Loved the 60's VW bus parked outside our room. Walking distance to awesome restaurant, Cafe Zack.

We loved our stay at Vagabond in Ventura. We have 2 fur babies we travel with and it was exactly what we always need. Close to the beach and to main street. Nice restaurant for breakfast each morning. The best part is affordable.

This was a last minute trip to Ventura and we thought that we would give this place a try. Crap!! Cigarette burns all over the carpet. Room reeked of cigarettes. Someone else's hair in the bathroom. TV didn't work. We will never stay at this place again. Need I say more.

I checked to see what room you had. That room used to be a smoking room and is scheduled to have the carpet removed and we will put in wood laminate flooring. The flooring company came in yesterday to give us a cost per room on those. You were not assigned that room, but when you came in, the room... More
