We needed a stopping point to break up a longer trip; several friends independently recommended the Vagabond Inn. Despite some initial hesitation due to mixed reviews, we booked the hotel based on our friends' experiences. We were glad we did!
We arrived very late at night, but the desk clerk was super nice, friendly, and made us feel welcome. Our request for a room on the top floor and towards the back was honored. While it is your standard hotel room in size and layout, it is newly refurbished (in fact, they were working on the rooms at the front of the building, putting in new carpeting, etc.) The new decor is very pretty and stylish. The room was quiet during the night, and the heater worked great. Everything was clean and working - plenty of hot water. The walls are thin as we discovered when our neighbor was up at 5 am to take a shower, but I'm sure he wasn't happy when we arrived in the wee hours of the morning.
Continental breakfast in the morning; when we checked in, the desk clerk reminded us the room included breakfast and to please come eat. Bagels, muffins, doughnuts, juice, coffee, jams, oranges, etc. It looks like they have fresh popcorn in the evening.
Plenty of parking and easy to find - it is right on the main road through town.
Overall, a good experience and we can see why our friends recommended it. We would definitely stay here again.
