“overall a good place to stay, but has some problems”
Reviewed April 8, 2014

first, the positives: the rooms are good size and the furniture is nice: microwave and fridge in the rooms; satelite tv with lots of channels; room was clean except for the wooden floor; the wifi worked well; manager was friendly.

now the problems: one of the towels was filthy and a pillowcase had lipstick and other stains on it and there was a blood stain on the sheet- i wondered if they even change linens between guests. the tub and sink drains drained slowly; there was no towel rack; walls are paper thin. there was no maid service and when i asked why i was told i should've asked for it- then was told the maid couldn't unlock the door, which had a temperamental lock on it. office was not open at 7 a.m. for breakfast- only selection was cold cereal or make-your-own waffle.

despite the problems, and with a good rate when booked online, it was an ok place to stay.

Stayed here pretty much by default and didn't like the looks of things when we got here (see review for Desert Lodge in Palm Springs). The glass wall with the key slot wasn't a welcoming sight when we got there, but the staff was nearly above reproach! They were all uber friendly and willing to help in any way. The room was a bit dated but very clean and comfortable. I don't get hung up on fluff -- I just want a good night's sleep at a reasonable price. This was all of that. I would stay here again just because of the staff.

I am working 1 1/2 hours away from home, and knew I would be done around 8pm, back to work at 8am, so made a 2 night reservation online. Specifically sought out pet policies and looked at reviews. "Pets allowed, additional fees may apply". Because I have allergy issues, requested a non-smoking room.
The non-smoking room was the first issue... pet rooms have to be smoking rooms. Why? Hair can be removed, smoke and debris in the air cannot be removed. So that was the first issue the inn keeper had with me. Then I had a second dog. I was honest. Then he told me he could not give me a room and I had to call the online company to cancel the reservation. I pointed out that NO WHERE does it say that pets OK (plural) means one dog, and I was willing to jeopardize my health and stay in a smoking room and pay the additional amount ($10/per pet/pet night), but I was not allowed to stay.
So there I was, at 8:30pm, in his parking lot, having to call online to cancel his reservation. Then I had to try to find another place.
I have stayed in various Vagabond Inns in the past, and had NO problem with having to stay in a smoking room OR with my pets, but this experience has me tainted. Just wanted a place to settle down and sleep for teh night. ANYONE WITH PETS, BEWARE!!!

My first time at a vagabond inn. Good hotel, with very nice addings. The rooms were good and for an awesome price. The staff was sweet and got me into my room quickly. The wifi was at a good speed and the breakfast looked good but I didn't eat since I had to get back on the road Thank you vagabond staff
