So bad it ruined my mom's 75th birthday celebration.
Reviewed 14 September, 2021
This is the worst hotel stay ever: The reason for our trip was to celebrate my moms 75 birthday and this hotel stay ruined it. We were the only ones in the lobby for check in & they guy kept telling us to hold on. He was having repair issues. After 30 minutes we got our rooms. We had to leave $100 cash deposit for each room, I didn't have that much cash so he just took $100 for the both rooms. This was so we didn't have pets or smoke. The next morning I called for a room inspection and the guys said no need just come down and get your deposit. Perhaps on the confirmation emails that should be stated. Both rooms were horrible. I was in room 228, when I went to shower the tub was dirty so I cleaned it, took my shower and it started backing up, so gross and smelly. I told the guy downstairs this and that my remote batteries must have been dead. Couldn't fix the tub until the next day, so I couldn't shower. My moms room 226 , the tub was 1/4 full of backed up water and she never even showered. Back to room 228 there was plaster falling off the wall in the bathroom, plaster around the window frame had fallen off, one of the bedside light was broken and cockeyed, both rooms windows were so dirty it was hard to see out of them. When we got back to our rooms in the evening that's when it got even worse. There was so much yelling, fighting, door slamming, and baby crying in the hall it kept us both up all night. My mom in room 226 tried to call down but the phone didn't work.
Too expensive for the quality

The quality of this motel is bad, the shower walls were full of hairs, the sheets were stain, the room didn't have a fridge or microwave, the chairs were so dirty, i would never stay at this place, the price is too high for a small room that is not even well clean and doesn't have appliances when they know you're gonna be staying for 3 days, i had to pay extra money to get a damn fridge in the room. Not good at all😡

This place looks really good in the pictures online and then a COMPLETELY different situation in person. The parking lot in the front fills up and the only places to park is around a dark corner of the building in an alley that looks super dicey and unsafe. The room carpet looks old and dirty, the bathroom looks like from an old apartment building 30 years ago with grout looking as old. Room is old decor as well and not like the pictures online. Bait and switch all the way... Horrible and scary! Don't say nobody didn't try to warn you.
Terrible DO NOT STAY HERE

I recently stayed at this hotel , we weren’t looking for a 5 star hotel/motel we just wanted something clean and somewhere to have a good sleep, we checked in at 2 after booking and paying for 4 nights accommodatio,which looked half decent on the website. We entered into our room and I’ve never seen anything like this it was so disgusting the smell was horrific, but we thought we can deal with it we will just spray some air freshener around the room and it will be fine, then it was time for bed well ... we lasted 10 minutes in the bed all we did was scratch our body’s from bedbugs ,we were both so tired so we stripped the bed down, We slept with our clothes on ,I was lying there looking up at the roof which had well I really don’t know but it did look like blood on the roof and they have painted over it ,there was lettuce down on the floor next to my bed there was cockroaches in the bathroom, the towels were a yellow colour obviously they are meant to be white ! We both had showers and just drip dried to scared of what we would catch off the towels we had showers with flip flops on cause the shower/bath was stained and did not look clean !there was no fridge in the room my husband is on medication which needs to be stored in a refrigerator oh you can get a fridge but there’s a hire fee and that ,no hair dryer the tv was a decent size but the remote barley worked ,clock radio next to the bed was locked down and didn’t even reach the power out let ! The carpet had sticky stuff on it so we didn’t dare take of shoes off ! As I said we weren’t looking for a 5 star hotel we just wanted a clean room ,the location was great during the day but I wouldn’t go out after dark ! It was such a disappointment because it was the end of a 3 week holiday and thought we would end it with a nice relaxing time sitting around the pool but I wouldn’t dare use the pool ,after sitting in the room deciding what to do we both decided to cut our holiday short and rang the airline and came home the next day ! Please read this and don’t stay here bad things go in in that hotel ! Your probably asking yourself why didn’t we read the reviews right? Well we were on a cruise and only had about 5 minutes to book somewhere to stay the reception was not the best onboard the ship , but as I said the pictures looked good ,clean refrigerator! But that obviously was not the case ! I honestly do not understand how the mis place is allowed to keep running,now I’ve read all the reviews and I’m not the only one who has been in the same situation! I’ve stayed at 100s of hotels/motels all around the world and this has been the worst I’ve ever seen ! Do not do it stay away from this place ! On the brighter side it was close to the beach it was in walking distance! Nice Mexican eatery across the street !!
Dated, old, but super clean!!!!

My husband booked my hotels for my recent trip to LAX and I had some business in Long Beach to attend to so he booked the Vagabond Inn for me.
I do have to say driving up to it at night, I realized I was not in the best section of town but I didn't really care I was just there for the night.
The hotel manager checked me in and that was a very pleasant experience. The room while very very clean was extremely dated and really could use some refurbishment same goes for the bathroom however everything was scrupulously clean and the linens felt very comfortable against my skin.
Their continental breakfast is really for someone who lives a full carb lifestyle (and I don't so I eschewed it) but if you like cereal and muffins and sweet exotic breakfast juiced there would be plenty to have. The coffee was not fab, nor was there anything but powdered creamer, but it was better than nada.
