“It was just ok”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 April 2012

Stayed at the Vagabond Inn in Pasadena to attend a seminar at the convention center. I am very surprised this hotel gets such great reviews. The building is old with a fresh coat of paint. The beds are some what comfortable, but I over heard another guest complaining of bed bugs. The breakfast has enough choices for my taste, but the eating area is very small and can get crowded. The staff is really what makes this hotel. The housekeepers are very friendly and helpful as was the front desk staff. The manager however was very rude and constantly smoking in front of the lobby. I thought smoking was illegal in front of businesses. I guess Dave Catain did not get that memo. I will not be coming back, for a few extra dollars I can stay at the Hilton, which is much nicer.

We stayed just three nights - but the owner, room, pool and location were superb. I honestly don't think you would find a better place to stay in Pasadena for the money. mb studio.co.uk

What a great stay my family had at this hotel for the week! We felt like family with the staff! Dave (mgr.), Josh, and Carl gave awesome service. Without a doubt, the wheelchair accessible room was THE best accessible room I've ever stayed in. We intend to stay there again (and again) on our next visit(s). The quality service and cleanliness and friendliness are unmatched. The vending machines, the washer/dryer all worked fine, too. Thank you!!!

We used this hotel as base for six nights to explore the Los Angeles area. It is very well located. Within 45 minutes by car you are either in downtown LA, Santa Monica or Disneyland. The room is large enough, clean, good bed and with big screen TV. Plenty of parking space is available. The complementary breakfast is very good. You bake you own waffle, there is fruit to go along and enough choice in coffees and teas. Serial, eggs, it’s all there. We found it to be very good value for what we paid. It looks a good in reality as it does on the pictures, which is not always the case.

I chose this motel based on reviewers who said it was good for the price and I have to agree. We paid $85 for a single King bed. The room was small but we were only staying one night. It had a large screen tv, microwave, frig and coffee maker. The bathroom was huge and the bed was comfortable. The best thing is that it was very clean and pretty quiet. When we checked in they mistakenly gave us a room with 2 double beds in which the room was larger but the bathroom small, and it was a little beat up just as far as was and door dings. When we told them we had booked the single King they apologized and quickly cleaned a room for us which was in better shape than the previous room. The motel was on Colorado street just a few blocks from the hustle and bustle of Old Town, where we ate and walked around. What a super cute city!
