“Good price and location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2012

We stayed two nights here and got exactly what we paid for. The hotel is located in a great downtown location if you want to explore old town sac and the rail road museum. It is a short 10-15 walk through a parking garage to old town. I brought my wife and 3 kids with me on a business trip and they had a great time. The room was nothing fancy but clean. Not too big, however our double room was large enough for a pack-n-play and we still had walking room. The pool was great, (my kind of pool) an older pool with a very deep end. The hotel security was also kind enough to not kick us out right at 10:00. If you are a business traveler this would not be the ideal room for you. The table (desk) in the room is right next to the air conditioner so my arm was an ice sickle by the time I was done with my work.. The business center had two computers and a printer. I had to print out a couple word docs and they did not have Microsoft word, or open office loaded so I had to make a short drive to a local fedex/kinkos to print what I needed. This is a good hotel if your on a budget and if you want to be close to old town. Not the best for a business traveler.

Dear Traveler,

Thank you for your review. We love hearing from our satisfied guests. I was diappointed that the room layout did not work well. We do offer a few options that may work better next time. We have a Business King room taht features a large work desk and ergonomic chair. Also, we have adjoining rooms that offer the best of both: a King and two queens. I hope those options get you thinking about a return trip soon and I appreciate your thorough and honest description of all of our amenities. We appreciate your business and hope you'll be back.

Safe travels!

Arrived here really early while still on British time. Staff were really friendly and took an interest, they also managed to check us in despite being there so much earlier than the check-in time. Room was spacious, clean and comfortable. Location really good for Old Town and Railroad museum. Shame about the Denny's that used to be attached to it though, but looks like they were opening something new there anyway.

Overall, very good.

Dear Traveler,

It looks like you haven't been here since June and boy have things changed! The restaurant is now open and improved. It has a new interior and upgrades to the exterior, so I think you'll be pleasantly surprised when you return. The location is still the same, of course, so getting to the popular attractions is a breeze. We all appreciate you taking the time to write a positive review; we strive to offer a clean room and excellent service at a reasonable price. Hope to see you again soon!

The location of this hotel is the only reason i would book or stay again. Arriving here to a line of people with panhandlers right at the front door, when we get to our room the trash hasnt been taken out and there was only one clean towel. luckily we caught the cleaning lady in the hall to get some more towels..and i walked around for 10 minutes looking for an ice machine only to realise the ice bucket i have has a crack in the bottom.. sub par.

Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback regarding your recent stay. We always appreciate constructive criticism and use it as an opportunity to improve. We're happy to hear that you enjoyed our convenient location, but disappointed that your accommodations were not as anticipated.

With regard to our room surroundings, the wellbeing of our guests is a top priority and without any reported incidents we’re confident in the security of our facility. We are a downtown location and people pass by the hotel frequently. We do however, control access to our property and disallow any loitering.

Providing service and facilities at the best level we can achieve is our goal. But we’re not perfect and sometimes we do slip up. However, when we do make a mistake, and that mistake is brought to our attention at the time, we will do whatever it takes to ensure our guests still experience a comfortable and enjoyable stay.

My 82 year old husband and I had just ended a great trip in Northern California arriving by train the week before and renting a car to drive all over. On the last day of our trip, we had driven from Fairfield, CA to Yosemite National park and back to Sacramento; a Very long day. We still had to get our checked luggage to the train station and then return our rental car. We arrived at the Vagabond Inn about 9:30 pm exhausted and Amanda at the counter told me that the young van driver, Glenn, would be happy to take me to the train station with the luggage. He helped me to load everything and took me to the station. When we returned, I followed him to the airport in my rental car and he helped me to find and return the rental and then drove me back to the hotel. He was on his own time by now but he was so cheerful and helpful. I thanked him for everything he had done for us and assured him I could never have done it without his help. The next morning there was a knock at our door and Glenn stood there with my wallet that had fallen out of my purse in his car the night before! I cannot say enough about this honest young man, Glenn, and Amanda at the desk.

this is the best value in sacto, walking distance to old town, capitol, westfield mall and perkos right in fron for lunch or dinner. The clerks patty and amanda are ultra helpful and very nice. fresh cookies daily and nice breakfast that would cost a lot if purchasede. this is our 3rd stay here and would not stay anywhere else in sacto!

Room Tip: poolside rooms on ground floor are excellent, if you have a dog also good.

We regularly do theater trips to Sacramento, and now stay every time at Vagabond's Executive Inn, same room every time. Extremely large, well equipped with fridge/microwave, great beds, clean, good modern air-con, hot breakfast, super strong WiFi. Why anyone pays three times as much to stay at the 4*+ hotels in Sacramento beats me!!

Room Tip: Rooms on 3rd floor facing the great swimming pool (good for laps) are quietest.
