“Vagabond USC - Always clean - Always helpful”
Reviewed May 16, 2013

As a USC parent I have stayed here several times over the past two years. The rooms are always clean and the staff is very courteous and helpful. Also like the free parking. Vagabond is very convenient to restaurants and downtown area. Will definitely stay again.

Perfect for USC parents. Close by and everything you need even a small but clean and nice pool. Close to everything. Jessica at the deal was very helpful - watched my orchid on a hot day after check out until I was ready to leave town. I'll be back.

I have to say Nazneen at the front desk was very helpful to me. Showed a lot of care and attention to my mother and I who stayed for quite some time at Vagabond.

Very close to USC, good working staff and maid service. Good spot near downtown too.

This is a very clean and lovely place to stay. My sister and I looked at this place years ago after the Revlon walk. We were greeted by the housekeeper Maria who was very happy to show us a room. Very clean and nice. We now stay there once a year, have come to know Maria, who greets us warmly every year like family. She shared with us the history of this hotel, which is very nice, when you go there you should ask her. Nasdeen the office staff trys to help us as much as possible since we like to get the same room each year and that can be a problem. That would be the only improvement i can suggest is that when a room is requested ( for a repeat guest) it should be honored.

We are glad you had a satisfactory stay. Also we did see your suggestion and we normally do try to accomodate all of our Guest's but it's hard specially when we have multiple Guest's requesting same Room numbers.

Booked this at very short notice as we had booked something else in LA which was not in a good area. The rooms were very clean and large but the air con was very noisy. The reception staff are extremely helpful and will do what they can for you. The Uni accommodation is very near and it was the end of semester when we went so it was noisy with young people enjoying themselves all over. However, it did all end around 11pm which was very acceptable. Pool area nice and clean. Breakfast was donuts or croissants so a bit disappointing but there are plenty of places to eat around. Enjoyed our stay and would recommend.

I was afraid to book this hotel and was I wrong. The room was very clean the bathroom was spotless and the linen was fresh. I must say that some of the other reviews are wrong at times. You must always remember what you pay for is what you get. You want 5 star then go book 5 star. You want 4 star and 24 hour this and that then guess what go book the 4 star hotel!! The rooms are a bit on the older side and do need to be upgraded, but for the 3 nights I was there, they had what I needed. Continental Breakfast free.... Wireless internet free...Clean linen, clean bathroom all of which I want in a place to sleep. The staff..... OUTSTANDING!!!! A special thank you to Nazneen, Maria, Jazmin and Gustavo for all that they did while I was a guest at this establishment.... from asking so many questions about the area and what to do in my offf time..... from asking about T-shirt shops and to which burger place was the best in the area. There were so many different choices and Maria was right there on the spot telling me where to go!!!! I was there for a book signing with a great friend that was invited to be at the LA Times festival of books... wow was it easy to get to.... CVS is within a block for anything I needed. Once this Inn gets renovated and they are trying to get it done... it will be the best little Inn on the S. Figueroa Corridor!!! Once again I THANK the outstanding Staff and I do need to get back there again even if it's for some R & R.

In April this year, my daughter and I, we were attending the LA Times Book Festival at LAUSC. Vagabond Inn Hotel was the closest to the event. As a beginner author, I selected the hotel for its proximity as well as for the affordability of its rates. Since this is a budget hotel, I did not know what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised to find the room in impeccable condition, beginning from the beautiful white sheets, comfortable beds, office staff, and maid service, all to be highly recommended.
Thank you all: Maria, Joanna, Sam, Nazneen...et all, I wish I knew all of your names - a five-star staff!
