I'm torn because I love this hotel but the last time I stayed here I got no sleep which is why you stay in a hotel to get some sleep but sadly was awoken by room renovations on the room we share a wall with

This is a no frills inn. It is right by the train tracks, but we like trains, so we didn't mind. Otherwise, the location is good, as it is walking distance to downtown shops and restaurants, as well as to the bridge that crosses over the freeway to take you to restaurants on the beach. Spencer McKenzie's is just across...

I cannot believe the cleanliness, customer service and outright laziness of all the staff at the vagabond Inn! Which is the correct name for it because of all the beach bums and other interlopers that creep around this hotel. I have been begged for more money from the homeless I should file them on my taxes. In room bugs, refrigerator...

We have stayed here a few times and the proximity to the beach is great! Unfortunately one of the people at the front desk was rude and unhelpful when i tried to check in early with my 2 year old daughter. While I like the location, the service was so bad I may not stay here again :(. Also, it's...

This motel is located near the freeway and with easy beach access. Don't stay in a room near the stairs, you wil hear people come and go all day and night. Don't stay in a room near the supply room for the cleaning staff. They work hard and spend long hours making sure the rooms are reasonabley clean. You will...

I stayed here for a night during my son's spring break. It was close to everything; the pier, Amtrak station (we took a train) and downtown are all within walking distance. It's not the fanciest hotel on the block but the room was clean and comfortable. We arrived early but had no problem checking in early. I would stay again.

The bed was comfortable and the water was heart. But there were maintenance issues which need to be taken care of: inoperable lamp and t.v. remote, missing toilet paper rod, cracked tile in bathroom, poor cleaning. Even still, I'd stay again for the great bed and hot water.

This is a great price for a nice room right across from the beach. Just a walk across the bridge and good food awaits you. A bit of an odor when you first enter your room, but that's to be expected of an older building. The room was quite clean and quiet. We will definitely be back.

Stayed for 2 nights in March 2017. The lady at the front desk was very courteous and helpful and did a good job juggling the people checking in while the phone rang frequently. Once I walked onto the property itself, the place seemed to be a long term residential hotel with the sort of party atmosphere I would have preferred...
