We stayed at this hotel for two nights in April. The bedroom and bathroom were clean. The hotel is conveniently located, close to the airport, a few great restaurants and San Diego downtown. I would recommend this place if you are looking for some place inexpensive and comfortable.

Staff was really nice and great at accommodating our requests. Room was clean and well supplied. Loved that it was within walking distance to restaurants. Enjoyed the views of the bay. The breakfast was disappointing. We had enjoyed waffles at other Vagabond Inns and was sorry to see such a sparse offering here, however for the price and the free...

I booked this motel based off the reviews I had read online. Unfortunately it did not live up to the reviews. The staff were very friendly and helpful. It is a bit run down but our main desire was to have a clean comfortable room. Our room was a good size and seemed clean upon arrival. There was an overwhelming...

This place is quite nice considering it is a motel. It is near some taverns and a few spots if you're looking for something to do that's not too touristy. Most people will say "you get what you pay for" but honestly, this place for the price that we paid, is above par in comparison others that were going for...

Many others have shared same feelings....rooms are a little worn.....this hotel needs updating. BUT...it is kept clean and staff is very attentive. Breakfast is lackluster. One type of bread, bagel, I think two cereals and some small pastry. Ok..very continental. But, the good news, many places around to go for breakfast in a short drive or even walk. This location...

This hotel is in a good location in San Diego. The rooms could use some updating, but our room was clean and nice. The bathroom was clean but needs major updating---no vent so quite stuffy in there, it didn't have a hairdryer (but I was able to borrow one from the front desk), the outlets in the bathroom didn't work,...

I understand that San Diego is expensive and sometimes people don't need all the bells and whistles of a luxury room. Based on the pictures and reviews I read, I was expecting a "standard" economy room, but I feel misled by the photos and reviews. The Vagabond has done an amazing job showing the hotel in a positive light, but...

This is such a coze, comfortable little place a stone's throw from just about everywhere in San Diego. Super comfy beds and well-furnished rooms. The pool area is clean and nice, and there are many wonderful restaurants within walking distance. I will always stay here when I need an affordable, nice place to stay in San Diego.

“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.”
