I'm staying this hotel with my family about a week. Nothing much did'nt liked so far. This place is really calm, and quiete here. I would recommend that who are visiting with family here.

Also here got lot of restraunts around hotel , example: Japenese food, chinese food, mc donalds, subway etc. You dont need to find any food from far. Just walk about 1-2min.

Here got one reception who's name is Nazneen. She have really good characters and very helpfull woman. Thanks for nice service here Nazneen!

We attended the Notre Dame - USC game in November 2012. The hotel was perfect for game weekend. Stadium and campus only ten minute walk away. Plenty of cheap food places around for cheap food and beer. Hotel was nothing flash but it was perfect for the weekend if you wanted to only spend time at USC. Great if you are out of towner (we from Australia) as you dont need car or cabs if time spent on campus. If you wanted to do anything else like go to LA Live or going for an extended stay maybe look elsewhere but for 2 day game weekend, ideal.

Dear Tim K,

Thank you for your recent stay and taking the time to review our property.

I am happy to hear you had a great stay and that we exceeded your expectations.
We are very close to many attractions. We are minutes away from the Convention Center, Staples Center(Lakers Home) LALIVE to mention a few. We are also 15 min from the Rose Bowl that's where the first game of the year takes place. That will be where Notre Dame will be playing in January of next year. Hope to see you soon or next Football season.

I had a great experience with my recent stay. The staff were nice and frienly. Housekeeping staff were nice and helpful too. I liked the Room I stayed in. It was very clean and it smelled clean. The bed was very comfortable. I loved how it looks since they changed from those old filthy bedspreads. Overall I had a great stay thanks to 2 ladies Joanna-manager and Jessica-front desk. I was checked by them two they gave me all this info I had not gotten on my previous stay in nov last year. Thank you girls and I will definately will be coming to this place again.

I had a very nice stay at this hotel, the staff was very friendly and especially Maria! She made our hotel stay extra special, when we needed extra towels and help with places to go nearby. She was very helpful & friendly. The hotel was clean and had a nice plasma tv. Our overall stay was great and the hotel staff was helpful & friendly. I would recommend this hotel and make sure you say "hello" to Maria :)

I stay at the vagabond when I visit my offspring at USC. It is within walking distance. The hotel is not luxurious but on the other hand it is reasonably priced, clean and pleasant. The staff is extremely helpful. I was very touched at how the receptionist, a young lady called Nazneen, went out of her way to make sure I was taken care of last time I was there. I heartily recommend this hotel for people who have kids at USC and who want a down to earth good place to stay.

Room Tip: Corner suites are larger.
