“I travel alot”
Reviewed March 27, 2014

I travel a lot and the south vagabond right off the 99 and Panama is one of the better hotels I've stayed in. It's a pretty convenient location Wal-Mart across the street with a Dennys in the lot. The rooms are always clean and customer service is amazing, whenever I check in the assistant manager always greets me with a smile, I think she goes by Alma, tell her I said hi

I was visiting my brother in Bakersfield that I hadn't seen in a long time. He recommended this hotel cause of the price. Said he called several hotels in the area but this one had a free breakfast and free internet that was included with my room as I was staying several days. The rooms are remodeled with hard wood floors and flat screen tvs. Very clean rooms. The people that work in the office were accommodating to every need that I requested cause I have a lot of medical problems. They were great and never got upset at me. I will be returning next month with other family members and will be recommending we all stay here.

Room Tip: ask for the remodeled rooms with hard wood floors

This is the first time Tripadviser failed me. We read glowing reports about this motel and decided to pass up a Motel Six for something a little better. What a mistake. We paid over $70 for a terrible room. Checked in at 5:30 pm and the first room we were given had not been cleaned. The second room had floors so dirty they were black. A hole above the light had been repaired but not painted. When I went to take a shower, there was no soap. I even had to pay for ice which I would only expect at a four star hotel. Small rooms but that would be ok if maitenance and amenaties were up to date. The place obviously caters to construction workers as dozens of them could be seen lounging outside their open doors. Really seedy. For the same amount of money, we could have found much better. For those Tripadviser members who gave this a good rating, you need to try some other place so you have a reasonable comparison. Didn't bother with the breakfast. It sounded good, but they have to start it at 2:00 am so as to feed the hundreds of guests in a room that is the size of a postage stamp. Won't ever stay at a Vagabond Inn again.

Room Tip: If you want a good room, try the local Motel 6

Thank you for taking the time to review our property. At Vagabond Inns I can assure you that we strive to provide the best experience for our guests. We sincerely apologize that your stay was not satisfactory. The shower gel that our hotel provides is no longer individually packaged. It is located on the wall inside of the shower in order to maintain Eco-friendly. We are very happy at the front desk to provide you with a quarter at any time for ice. I apologize that you were not informed of this at check-in. I would like to personally invite you back to our property for a stay I can assure you will be satisfied with. Please feel free to contact myself at any given time through the property.

Again, our sincerest apologies,
Jackie Mooers

For a price at 40$ the rooms were way better then expected. Their breakfast hours were very unique starting at 2am. The blueberry waffles were deliciouso. Lily was very sweet and friendly. I honestly didn't expect to have such a great stay. I left there very happy but I will be returning on my next trip.
