Bed Comfortable, that's all.

Pros: The bed was comfortable.
Cons: Everything.
After waiting in the lobby while front desk person verified with the maid OVER THE RADIO that "the rooms are ready", I went to the room to find that there were no towels at all in it. Had to call front desk and tell them that the room, in fact, was NOT ready. They somewhat promptly had the maid bring some towels. The metal door frame for the bathroom door is rusted out, kind of handing in mid-air, un-repaired. Furniture all looks old. TV did not work, had to contact front desk for that too. Walls have had holes patched, then left with the patches "in the rough" eg: the drywall patch compound was not sanded down, and the wall not touch-up painted over the multiple repairs. There was no small pad of paper nor a writing implement by the room phone. There was no instruction card by the phone to tell how to use it. The room-to-room intercom feature of the phone DID NOT work - inconvenient because our party rented multiple rooms, and we were not adjacent to each other, in fact we were on different floors. Also the pool area was closed, padlocked shut. Nothing was mentioned about this closure when we booked.

Nice Staff but the place looked ran down for $210 a night. The spa was green and they would hang the sheets on the fence of the pool to dry. Not worth the price

Not to bad!

I liked the stay at the hotel! I would have to say the tub could be cleaned a little more! It wasn't very dirty but there was ants and hairs. Overall the room was pretty tidy and clean! The staff were pretty nice and courteous! I would stay there again if I couldn't find a better hotel it was definitely better than motel 6! I would recommend the stay here to others!

Nice Hotel, friendly and helpful staff.

Our first room, had the A/C in the bathroom, it took all night to start to cool our room down. I talked to the lady in the office the next morning about moving to one of the rooms that had the A/C in the room its self, she was very sweet about it, and moved us that day. That room was excelant.

Ants in room

Pros: Staff was very helpful.
Cons: Spray for ants.
Location: Location ok.
Staff was excellent. All helped when needed. In the morning found several ants crawling around the room. We had no food in the room, so these ants were here from another cause.

Great stay from start to finish. The young woman running the front desk was great - friendly, welcoming and very helpful.

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet, very clean
Cons: Poor breakfast
It's not the Ritz, but the Vagabond Inn was comfortable, quiet, VERY clean (I'm picky about a clean hotel room) and conveniently located near 54 and 805. The neighborhood seemed a bit "iffy", but everyone we encountered was friendly. We needed an inexpensive but comfortable place to stay for an impromptu trip to visit a friend, and that's what we got. We'd stay here again.

A place to sleep.

Pros: Close restaurants
Cons: Poor breakfast, see my review.
The staff were not very helpful or knowledgeable. The hotel was older but well maintained. The "continental breakfast" consisted of sweet rolls and coffee, that's it. The room smelled musty, the coffee maker was on the bathroom sink and there was a rundown trailer in a trailer park 10 to 15 feet from the bathroom window.

Great value for the price

This was a good stay. The room was clean and comfortable. The refrigerator needs a little work but otherwise a great stay. Would stay again.

Love this place

We stayed in this motel over Thanksgiving weekend for a family vacation and had a blast! They have a continental breakfast of muffins and donuts juice and coffee. What more could you need?! The rooms were clean the staff was friendly and helpful. We chose this place for the price and found it to be the best. You can walk around the area and hit some really nice restaurants. We even found the neighbors to be friendly-one neighbor invited us in for a barbecue and some live music-my husband even played the drums. We tend to spend alot of time outside sightseeing so the room is great for kicking back and relaxing. The kids played in the pool and we even ordered pizza in one night when it was raining. Great access to lots of fun. If your looking for the Ritz go somewhere else but if your looking to go have some fun and spend your money on the memories that matter this is the place for you!

Dependable, Comfortable, and ALWAYS THERE

I have stayed numerous times since I was a kid, (26+ years), It has always been a quiet place, and very comfortable. It has been remodeled in the inside, the outside could use some remodeling, and it needs new carpet, but overall, the pluses outweigh the minuses.
