Nice little hotel by the waterfront. Mostly clean and comfortable. I would have given it a higher rating but the carpet was very dirty, stained, sun bleached, and had a dirt trail going in to bathroom. Bed was comfy, room was quiet, property clean but could use a scrub brush and paint job. Good value for the money.

Perfect location and nice place to stay. 5 minutes by car to the downtown San Diego Maritime Museum area and Shelter Island. Walk out the gate and you are on the same side of the street as the harbor, boats and restaurants. The managers Hector and Joshua were very pleasant. The morning breakfast was nice and we could eat it...

As always, this facility meets our needs during trips to San Diego. It is clean and well kept and the staff are excellent. This location is conveniently located for all the places we enjoy visiting, from Coronado to Little Italy. We also thoroughly enjoy all the great restaurants within walking distance.

I usually enjoy staying at the Vagabond Inn during the off season fishing time. I can get some work done, we can relax in the kitchenette, we are close to restaurants and it is generally quiet. This was another good stay except for one problem. We stayed in a kitchenette away from the internet router. I could not get internet....

Joshua was one of THE most accomodating front desk clerks I have ever encountered in this service industry. Generally, the number of stars of a hotel is commensurate with the level of care you receive from the staff but not so at Vagabond. Joshua demonstrated a 5 star level quality of service and ensured our repeat business. Well done good...

As a captain on a fishing boat moored behind the hotel i enjoy the proximity to work and use your hotel often as well as a lot of my passangers. They cater to fishermen's needs with a professional staff that are courteous and friendly. I recommend the Vegabond to all who inquire about lodging.

We used this motel as a overnight stay after a late flight in. Convenient from the airport ($12 taxi). The rooms are dated, and could do with a refurb but for the price that was expected. Pretty clean, odd bit of mouldy in bathroom. Comfy bed. Would use again as an easy stopover but not for longer.

This motel is close to the airport with free parking and right by the water. We chose a 1st floor room because there is no elevator. It was quiet and very clean and roomy for this level of accommodation. It is within walking distance to good local restaurants, especially Point Loma Seafood that is wonderful.

We flew into San Diego late one evening and needed somewhere to stay for one night. This motel fit the bill. The rate was very reasonable and the location was very convenient to the airport and downtown. Our room was definitely not fancy but it was clean, the bed was comfortable and some upgrades had been made in the bathroom....

A recommendation to guests that do not like the parking lot rooms is to request poolside or second floor. Either way, thank you for your business,...

“The room itself was very nice, we had the kitchenette above the office, but it gets loud with traffic since it fronts Scott St. Nothing can be done about that except for us to specifically request the other kitchenette when we need a larger room.”
