Stayed at the vagabond south last week for business purposes. U can't beat 38 dollars a night. Rooms are excellent! They gave me a remodeled room, which was a king size bed, wood floor, flat screen TV, free wifi and free breakfast . staff was great, front desk employee Alma was very nice, sweet and helpful. I would recommend this location to everybody.

My family came into town so I rented some rooms at the vagabond inn south. The staff is excellent here and very friendly. They took care of my family cause most was a late checkin. My family says the rooms were clean and remodeled and the staff was so friendly to them. Next time we have another family gathering here I will defiantly have them stay here again.

Last weekend I went over to Bakersfield with my husband to look at some homes since we live down in Monrovia. We needed somewhere to stay and we came across Vagabond Inn. We checked in with a young lady named Alma, she was extremely helpful she helped us very much during our stay. The rooms are very home comfortable, my husband and I obsolutely loved it, they have wifi, great food, and it was super clean. I usually am picky with cleanliness and it was a great stay. We are definitely staying again this upcoming weekend!

Very comfortable, clean, fresh, and great breakfast. My honest opinion about Vagabond Inn was I had an amazing experience! I had to stay in over for a weekend due to family visit at Bakersfield. I checked in with a employee named Alma, she was VERY kind, sweet, and social! Since it was my first time staying at this hotel, she helped me with directing me to my room, which was a awesome gesture. I was very pleased overall with my experience, she was always making sure I was having a great experience at the Vagabond Inn.. I recommend 100%, great hotel and great costumer service!!

Vagabond Inn Fresno, Jensen Road exit motel, along 99 freeway

billboard on 99 freeway Vagabond Inn Bakersfield SE (Panama Lane) said $37.99, ad banner outside hotel said $37.99

when I asked front desk $42.99

Superbowl Sunday, I checked Vagabond Inn Fresno, Jensen Road exit off 99 freeway

the only saving grace at Bakersfield Vagabond Inn was that the complimentary breakfast was actually good

biscuits & gravy, DIY waffles, gourmet cappuccino machines, coffee made Bakersfield stay more palatable

I didn't check into Fresno Vagabond Inn @ Jensen Road, no breakfast.. only coffee

Room Tip: ample parking for trucks & trailers
