“Great Stay in Glendale”
Reviewed July 5, 2013

The hotel is ideally located across the street from the shopping mall. There are so many restaurants nearby. Our room was very clean and comfortable. There is free parking and coffee and juice are available throughout the day. Breakfast is continental (pastries from bakery) and oatmeal packets were available, along with apples and oranges.
The front desk representatives were very helpful and friendly. I highly recommend the Vagabond Inn.

Room Tip: I asked for a quiet room towards the back. They arranged this for me. I am a light sleeper and I had...

The place needs a facelift. The walkways are damaged/dirty. The room smelled and and was in need of major upgrading. The bed was comfortable enough, but the place, in general, felt unclean.

The elevator makes grinding noises. The AC is very noisy. They take steps to make sure only hotel patrons use the parking lot (sign on dashboard), but I saw people park and sneak off. Not sure about car security if no one enforces.

It is over-priced for what you get.

Will find another place next time we are in town.

Dear Guest,

Thank you very much for sharing your experience on Trip Advisor. You mentioned several areas that we did not meet your expectations. First, the elevator noise has been fixed. Second, in the past one year, we've changed shower heads, chairs, bed skirts, triple sheeting, flat screen televisions. In the next twelve months, we will replace bathroom fans, lighting and will put individual A/C units. Third, in regards to our parking, it is reserved only for our guests and we try our best to enforce this policy.

Thank you

We stayed at the Vagabond Inn twice in two months while we visited our son. The rooms are very clean and quiet. The beds are so comfortable. It is acoss the street from the Galleria...many restaurants! There is free parking and plenty of parking. They provided visitor parking for our son when we went to dinner. The continental breakfast was good with fresh pastries. My sister, brother in law and three friends also stayed. They felt it was a great value! What made our stay extra wonderful was the office staff. Lourdes and Jorge were very helpful, friendly and professional. They printed directions, maps, boarding passes and made sure everyone in our group got messages we left for each other. We plan to stay there whenever we visit LA.

Room Tip: We have stayed on the first floor and third....all very quiet.

I stayed at this Vagabond Inn for 3 nights whilst on vacation in the USA and have to admit the location was very handy to the Galleria and the Americana. The staff assisted me when I accidentally left my wallet at check-out time and had looked after it while I returned back to collect it. Overall, I would have to say it was a very good short stay .

When we went to the USA, we stayed in Glendale and Rancho Palos Verdes. While we were there we stayed in, the Glendale Vagabond inn. It was very clean and all staff were friendly! The rooms are very nice and big and it features a en-suite toilet. I really enjoyed my stay here, however the only thing holding it back was the breakfast, it was ok but it cauld be better.

Room Tip: Chose room 11. it is very big.

We stayed at the Vagabond Inn in Glendale last month. The location is fantastic (next to the huge "America Mall" - which has wonderful shops and restaurants). The rooms are comfortable and clean. The continental breakfast is just "eh", but it's slightly better than nothing. The pool is small (we didn't use it). It is consistently a good place to stay (stayed before with same experience). Katherine at the desk was great with local information.

I have stayed in hundreds of Hotels/Motels in my professional and private life. I have never experienced or even heard of a Hotel or motel, where you have no control of the air temperature in your room ??? I was hot and very uncomfortable. Everybody has different wants and even needs when it comes to the air temperature in their own rooms. At this place, it's decided for you. And I thought it was to warm. Which destroyed any sleep that I would of liked to have had.

Room Tip: Go somewhere else. It's also a motel with exterior doors. That just invites trouble.
