I was disappointed that this was a three star Inn. There were roaches crawling on the bathroom counter and in the tub. The mattress was worn and thin very uncomfortable. The room was cold and had an odor,

We had stayed at this Vagabond Inn several years ago and had a nice visit. This time the good thing about this place is the Pool was very nice and the Front Desk Clerk was personable. The bed was uncomfortable. When part of the sheet came off we felt ill seeing the stains on the mattress without a mattress topper....

Staff friendly, outside clean, room clean but in real need of some maintenance / remodeling. Beds old and uncomfortable, bathroom facilities showing age as well, stopper missing from sink, and signs of rust in the sink as well, TV very small. For the price (about half that of La Quinta) it served the need.

My daughter and I were traveling with other teenage girls and a few other adults to a nearby horse show. There was a room not far from ours that had several men staying in the room. There was a smell of marijuana coming from the room and they had their boxer shorts hanging on the rail near their door. We...

Check-In Time is 3pm. I arrived at 3pm and had to wait 90 minutes for them to have my room ready, despite being told it should be maybe 25 minutes. That's 90 minutes of vacation wasted when I could have been doing something else. Room was dingy, worn down, and disgusting, everything is stained. Had to kill a cockroach during...

Had no ac in the room. Called to the office and they would do anything for us. The whole row had none. They told me leave in 5 mins and get 10% or 30 min and get 50% off. It was midnight! HORRIBLE!!!!

Spend $20 and put up new drapes Put blankets on the bed that don't have cigarette burns and tears in them. Try to take a little pride in your property that was absolutely filthy and disgusting. I stay at Hilton hotels for work.. For personal travel I've stated at many budget hotels and I've never seen anything so dirty. This...

Would not stay here again. Beds were extremely uncomfortable and mattress creaked every time we moved. Changed rooms after we checked in as room was not very well cleaned and Could not access wifi. Second room had no refrigerator and safe was broken. Had to request a hair dryer. Staff was accommodating and it was quiet.

I stayed in June and July of 2016. I was in town for business and was pleased with my stay. The only complaint I had was with the cable/satellite connection. The tv;s were useless due to poor reception. Other than that, I was pleased with the service, clean rooms (except the old, dirty carpet), and location.
