“Very nice place to stay when visiting Universal Studios or Hollywood.”
Reviewed November 9, 2013

The area is safe to walk around in at night. There is a very large mall and lots of shopping, restraunts and sights withing walking distance of this hotel. It is located about 15 mins., with traffic, from Universal, Warner, NBC and about 20 mins from Griffity Park and the hollywood hills. The only con I had with this hotel is that the heater/air conditioner is automatic and even though there is a fan button and a thermostate in the room, it does not cool or heat it you want something different than what it is doing. We turned on the air in the morning and upon our return in the afternoon, it was very hot in the room. The free breakfast is the same here as in other hotels that offer free breakfasts. 3 types of cold cereals, instant oatmeal, pastries, fresh fruit, juices, coffee, hot chocolate and a nice assortment of teas. And the muffins were fresh, not stale. More than enough to get the day started. The beds are comfy and pillows small. The staff, from the front desk to the cleaning staff, all very friendly. The pool is very well maintained and overall, this is a great place to stay when visiting this end of the L A area. I would not stay here to go to Disneyland. The traffic is way to much in that direction. And there is a restraunt, Foxys, two doors down that will give a 10 % off to you by staying here. There is no traffic noise and the area is very quiet at night. There is a elevator that services all three floors as well as stairways. Parking was easy.

Room Tip: Stay on the 3rd floor if possible. The walls are thin, as are most motels, and these are the quiete...

Small - but warm and gracious hotel. I was lucky to have George look after me. I came to Glendale to visit a hospital and he made sure I made every appointment and also made sure I had everything to make my stay comfortable.

The Vagabond Inn is across the street from the Americana at Brand - has a wonderful restaurant next door - plus has a continental breakfast for you every morning.

Give it a try - you won't be dissapointed.

For value this would take some beating. It's in a brilliant location just across the road from a large shopping mall and cinema and lots of good restaurants. Whilst the exterior of the building is a little tired our room was clean, spacious and very comfortable and met all our requirements. As we had been living out of suitcases for several weeks it was great to find and iron and ironing board in order to freshen things up. A breakfast is provided which you have to take up to your room but that's absolutely no hassle. There is coffee, tea and juice on tap, plus fruit, 24 hrs.
Good value for money and would be very happy to stay here again.

Room Tip: As for a room away from the main street.

We stayed here both at the beginning and the end of our 3 week tour of the South Western USA. On arriving at LAX forget the airport hotels and make the short drive here. You have a comfortable room, excellent service and something to do in the evening. Across the road is both the Galleria shopping mall and the Americana at Brand. The Americana is worth an hour or two and has some great restaurants. Location is great for the Interstates, journey onwards and downtown. Oh, and Foxy's next door serves up a fantastic breakfast. Save yourself some money and stay here when in LA, you won't be disappointed!!

Room Tip: We stayed on the 3rd floor and heard no noise from guests or traffic. There is an elevator.

This hotel is a very customer friendly hotel, all what we need is what we get. Location, Cleanliness, friendly staff, rate, free breakfast, big beds, microwave, flat iron, coffee maker at a very reasonable price. During our 20 day tour of US..East and West Coast, we stayed in the likes of Marriott, Bellagio, Crown Plaza, Hilton, Hyatt, all these were 5 stars.. but nothing is close to Vagabond inn , Glendale...You will know what I mean when you come and stay... Money is just worth it...Its the best in America...Definitely my group will stay here again, and again...see you soon!!
