“Great value. Pushy checkout.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2012

I stayed here April 29th-May1st with my fiance. I'm from London, he's a Hacienda Heights resident and we needed a couple nights stay before my departure. This place is EXTREMELY good value. The rooms were neat, clean and had the basic amenities you need (towels,, soap, shampoo etc). We paid approx $60 per night before tax. The place is well kept and not grimey at all. I would stay here again.

The only downside is that on our chekout date, we went walking the trails in nearby Schabarum park, as was our routine every morning. We didn't make it back to the hotel til just after 12pm. Checkout time I believe is 11am. I had packed the night before and was just in the shower when the owner (female) burst into our room without knocking saying that she had entered earlier but we weren't in. My fiance told her we were just getting ourselves ready to leave.

Thereafter, our phone rang NON STOP over the next half hour as we got ready and loaded the car with our belongings. I've stayed in alot of hotels and staying a little over checkout time is never usually an issue long as they know you are leaving imminently. The phone ringing constantly was rude, distracting and bad customer service. It's not like we were some ghetto occupants trying to overstay.

Anyway, I'd still give this his a high rating as is great value and perfectly decent to stay in for short stays.

I am Hacienda Heights often on business and so glad I found the
Vagabond.
Every time I have stayed here, the room has been spotless.
It isn't a fancy place, but it is very, very clean.
It is nice having a microwave and a refrigerator in the room,
and laundry facilities just down the hall.
There is a nice basic breakfast in the lobby with juice, milk,
coffee, cereals, and toast.
There is free wi-fi in the rooms and the connection is great.
Ann and Tai the managers are very helpful, friendly and kind. If
I've needed a new key, or directions or an extra
towel, they never make me feel like I am bothering them.
Arthur, the evening manager is also very nice and
ready to help if I need to fax something or if I need quarters
for the washer and dryer.
The rooms closer to the street can be a little bit noisy sometimes because
of the freeway off ramp, but it isn't
really bothersome and there are rooms that are further
away from the street.
There are restaurants within walking distance and
shopping not too far away.
Thank you to all the staff for welcoming me, remembering my name
and making my stays at the Vagabond very pleasant.

PRO: The inn was recommended by my boyfriend's aunt. I was surprised how clean it was considering the price. The previous nights I paid over $100 for another hotel and it didn't even have a microwave or a fridge or free wireless service.
CON: It is right by the road so it was a little loud in the morning but we only stayed one night. The surrounding area made me feel a little uneasy but other than that it was great.
I would stay again, but only for one or two nights...

This was our third stop of our trip. I was pleasantly suprised that this Vagabond Inn was brand new. This place was a great value for the stay. It had free internet, but we did not use it. The room was very clean and it had a refrigerator, microwave, and a remote for the tv. Shower was clean. This place was pretty close to the Hsi Lai Temple which we visited as part of our trip. There's also free breakfast if you wake up early enough. This was better than the other two Motel 6 that we had stayed in. Overall it was a pleasant stay. I would highly recommend this place to others.

  • Liked — Brand new rooms. Great price. Pleasant stay.
  • Disliked — none
  • Tips/Secrets — Try booking thru the Vagabond website for better rates.

The room we got was absolutely appalling. The second that we opened the door, we got a huge wiff of the smoke that seemed to have infused everything in the room. Even our clothes smelled of smoke after we woke up the next day - ew! The carpet was worn out and we were afraid to walk around barefoot. The table and chair furnishings were sticky. The beds were uncomfortable and the supposedly complimentary Internet access didn't work at all, even after we had been given the login info from the front desk who was a creepy guy. This place is really below average and gave us the feeling that it was unsafe. Very dirty, bad-smelling and not well-kept. We will not stay here again.

I found Vagabond Inn Hacienda Heights when I was on a long drive and needed a place to crash. I guess it has only been open a short time. The room had a microwave and fridge, and was really a comfortable stay for me. I highly recommend it to anyone.
