It was the only hotel in town that wasn't fully booked due to a convention happening at the same time as our visit. The room was bare minimum. There were no pillows, comforter for the sofa bed in the living room. I had to ask for at least the pillows, and the manager got a couple from a vacant room that was apparently a smoking room. Because as soon as I put my head on the pillow, I could smell the cigarette smoke in all it's glory. My wife actually refused to use the pillow. We had reserved a family suite, so there were actually two bathrooms, but there were no towels in one of them. The bathrooms were clean although didn't look like they were renovated in a while. I will not recommend this place to anyone and will avoid it in my future travels.
Close to the freeway Close to different food places Bed wasnt a queen size like it said it was No ice in ice maker
Front desk was rude. Was told to check in after 1400, when we timed our trip to get there at 1400, we were told the room would not be ready till 1530. Ice machines were inop.
Was close to knotts but not Disneyland. Disappointed since sure said it was 1 mile away.
it was cheap. it was not very clean, the room smell like smoke, poor service, and the toilet was broken.
It was a decent location and it was clean. Even though I had prepaid when I arrived the desk said they didn't have a room, only a smoking room. I had to negotiate for over 10 minutes about my confirmed reservation. Then finally a manager came over and said they would rearrange guests. I said I don't want to put anyone out of their room, they said some people hasn't checked in yet...wait? What? I had a prepaid room and yet had to argue to get it? The rooms air conditioner made a loud noise from a broken panel so we put a suitcase to stop it from wobbling. Then the fan in the bathroom didn't work so the room was steamy. I will never return.
only the price I was extremely disappointed. This was close to Knotts but not Disney. I asked for non smoking because I was traveling with kids but our room wreaked of cigarettes. Rooms were tiny & the parking lot was always full & difficult to park. After 9 pm the motel was full of shady individuals walking around being loud. This would last up until about 2am. This was the first hotel I have stayed at that I didn't feel safe.
The price No maid service if you dont leave early

The fact that is was close to where we wanted to go is the only real good thing I can say. The rooms were to small, the beds uncomfortable, but for the price you aren't going to do any better elsewhere.
Easy to access internet. Clean room. Breakfast was juice, coffee, toast, big oranges, big apples and some bread. Easy to use ice machine. I like this inn.
Room smelled like Pine Sol - dirty tub (hair in tub!) filthy carpet.
It was close to our destination. Staff was helpful. Misrepresented on website - pool is extremely small; family suite does not have kitchen facilities only a small microwave and mini-fridge; tubs need resurfacing; carpet was so dirty our feet turned black.
The location was very close to the attractions I wanted to visit The morning breakfast, needed more variety
The location and the rooms were amazing.
Clean place... new paint, over all a decent place to sleep. Front desk person (male) was rude when we asked if we could have a later check out being that we unexpectedly checked in at 4am..and his reply was " well thats not my problem" was just flat out rude. Regular check out was 11am- we only needed a hour being that we had 2 small little ones with us ..he ended up allowing the later check out but was rude about it.
Location and breakfast. rooms clean and very well maintained
That I would not cancel my reservation.
Everything! The manager was nice the room was clean and the view was nice.
Good location and staff. Rooms are clean, site is in decent neighborhood and a good value for the money. Bathrooms are a bit dated but clean and functional. Easy access to LA area right off the PCH. It's a comfortable place to stay for the money. Contential breakfast is decent. Don't expect a luxury hotel, but it's decent & comfortable for the money. I'd recommend it for anyone looking for good value.
The ambiance of the room/place is not good. My 6-year old son said the place is creepy. I didn't like our room,1st day my son and i couldn't sleep because of the 2 mystery doors. My husband called the office and asked what are those two creepy doors. They said the 1st door is an old kitchen and 2nd one is a connecting door to the other room. The bedsheets were pretty dirty,my husband asked them to change it but they didnt. They just fixed it. Good thing i am not scared of spiders. In the bathroom you will see some. No microwave. I am sorry for the bad review. What i like is that the motel is near the airport and free parking.
The service was great, the room was clean, the staff was friendly and accommodating! There is also a police station a couple of blocks away. The area is shoddy at best and the clientele was a bit shady --during my stay I saw several people use a room for an hour or two followed by a quick clean up.
The room was in good condition. No dresser and no blow dryer in room. Beds were clean. Pretty average for 2star hotel. The staff did try to keep an extra $10 from my change. The male staff made me go to the arm to pay him because he couldn't figure out his debit machine. When we came back the female role me my payment was $95. T was 85. then purposely gave me wrong chang
Friendly Staff. Very hospitable. No coffee pot in the room and tried to order food to be delivered with absolutely no luck.
I love that this hotel had wifi! It really helped on my trip
The hotel is conveniently located and fairly well kept. The room had a refrigerator, a microwave, and a hairdryer. There was also a bathtub, not just a shower. There was also a little table and chairs. Parking was free and fast food and gas is nearby. The area of town isn't great, but it's okay. We felt safe enough. The walls are a little thin, but not too bad. The bedding was just the sheets and the bedspread - though we probably could have got a blanket if we asked. The heater was loud, but worked.
Super friendly staff and extremely clean rooms. Will definitely stay there again. Loved having the microwave and refrigerator in the room. Also it was very conveniently located :-) Beds were a little hard and just a few noisy neighbors, the walls are kinda thin.
This hotel was in a questionable neighborhood my employees stay here I booked their rooms they very frightened and got very little sleep. There was no hot water and ants in the shower. same as above
Very nice people, close-enough to the Aquarium, etc., parking right in front of the room. Little fridge, microwave, hair dryer. Definitely adequate for our needs. The kid got a kick out of the black light painting on the ceiling. Bed was a little hard, not awful. Could've used a couple extra pillows and the soap is very tiny.
Staff very helpful, location good, affordable, fantastic room design! Nothing
Rooms were okay Mattress too hard. No ice available. Could also use small coffee pots with all the supplies in room. Had to go out and buy coffee in the morning.
The room was very clean. The location wasn't That desirable
The room was clean and comfortable. Large screen,plenty of room, good internet. The wood floors better than carpet. The ceiling was painted with a mural which gave the room character. This was as good a 2 star that I have seen, and better than some 3's. The towels were not smooth, but rather rough; definitely need softner.
Location was good. Bed was fixed and clean. Welcoming enough. Facilities and rooms need updating. Rust on anything metal and needs new paint. For just an overnight stay it was fine but not for a vacation stay.
nothing everything cancelled our reservations I would never consider staying at the Vagabond. The male at the desk was very inconsiderate. No customer service.
The room was a good size, but that's about where the compliments end. Some of the staff were very friendly, but there seemed to be some neglect of keeping things on track at the front desk. *see the rest of my review* The parking was inadequate to say the least. The flooring in the bathroom was coming up in several places. The beds were VERY loud, so not great when you're trying not to wake up everyone else in the room when you move any bit. The breakfast, while I didn't expect much, was even worse then expected. There was only apples, bananas, some prepackaged danishes, mini super sweet chocolate chip muffins, 2 types of cereal in some plastic storage containers to pour from, and then the breakfast drink in a fountain drink style machine. The pool was unheated, not that I really expected it to be, and for some reason, you weren't allowed to get back to your room, after going in the pool, using the elevator. The walls of the hallway had air pockets in the paint. It seemed like it needed a renovation about 10+ years ago and they're still putting it off. Windows don't really do much to keep out sound or air. The AC never got the room cool at night even when we had it at 60° the entire stay. The elevator was very janky and made weird noises as it slowly moved. There were so many things wrong, I'm sure I'm forgetting many. Also, while I was there, someone came out of the elevator smoking a lit cigarette which made the elevator just a cloud of smoke. I have asthma and smoke highly affects me and I was shocked. I braved the elevator with my shirt over my face and trying to hold my breath as long as possible since I was on the top floor and wasn't able to take the stairs. I then went straight to my room to call the front desk so they could do something about it, and the line was busy. I assumed it was still busy down there seeing as I just came from there, so waited a few minutes and tried again, and got the same thing. I tried a few more times over the next 15-20 minutes and it was a busy tone the whole time. I could see the front desk from my room's window and so I checked to see if it was really that busy right then, and it looked empty other than the worker behind the desk. I saw the guy there not on the phone and had called right before and after I looked out the window and still got nothing. As it was already almost 10 and my friends had already gone to bed; I couldn't keep calling the front desk. When I told them in the morning at check out, they basically said that there is nothing they can do about what people choose to do when they know they're not supposed to do said thing. Maybe they could've if they'd picked up the phone and not left it off the hook. They had video camera too. This seems neglectful of them. I will not be going back for many reasons and do not recommend to others.
Nothing Unclean, bad service,not recommended to stay
Nothing. Stayed there on a Friday night and the music from restaurant/club across the street was blaring till about 2am. Bathroom was practically in disrepair. Sink faucet knob turned all the way around and didn't stop-- you had to find the sweet spot to turn it off. Tub drain plug was laying outside drain. Location was sketchy. Key card didn't work at the back entrance, so I had to walk all the way around. When I told the front desk person that I needed a new key card, he said I didn't-- it worked everywhere else except the back door.
Cheap, friendly, close to town. No TP in the room upon arrival, clearly layers of carpetting piled on each other, desk clerk lost four fingers on one hand.
It was disgusting! Bathroom was dirty. No wifi connection
Reasonably priced, close to nearby restaurants, coffee shops, bus station and attractions. Awoke in the middle of one of the nights to a honking car in the parking lot. Lots of traffic noise in this location. Poor breakfast choices. No air conditioning in the hallways.
Checking Out There was no power when we got there so we were given candles to light the rooms. No electricity for two days. Roomed smelled and the candles they gave us smelled worse.
The staff was great. A very clean hotel. This hotel is out dated. Needs paint and upgraded bathrooms. Carpet is worn so it looks dirty, which it isnt. It also needs more parking. Has one third that it needs. Our car was three deep. Also this is not the best neighborhood!!! Y-fi didn't work most of the time. The continental breakfast could be upgraded also. 2 cerals, coffee, juice, bananas and chocolate chip mini-muffins. That was it.
The pool was closed and their idea of continental breakfast was cereal and bananas. :(
It was a great deal, close enough to the convention center, the room was big and nice.
Nothing. Police were in the parking lot for hours due to a bad guest. The sleeper was broken. The manager harassed me about taking yogurt back to my room from the continental breakfast. he said I would spill and attract ants and food was not allowed in the rooms. Harassed us about checking out at 1040 when check out wad at 11. Terrible service.
Nice room off the beaten path. When extending one extra night, they wouldn't honor the Kayak price. It was a Sunday night. He said that I would have to check out and check back in. I ended paying his price of $5.00 more.
Front desk was very nice. It was peaceful and very clean. The air conditioner didn't get the temper I prefer.
Booked 11 days, but added a couple of additional nights. Jasu the proprietor offered excellent reduced rates for my 'booked' stay. Free Wi-Fi and daily cleanups were appreciated. Safe area with no strange characters about. 605 and 91 were nearby as well as well as restaurants. Would stay there again. Charges for ice to fill your room bucket. Just a few TV channels.
Big and comfortable bed, lot of space in room Shower didn't work, we used bucket to shower ourselves. When we started water to run, thousands of ants came into the bath. Seriously, it was terrible and freaky, I even filmed it! Phe
The staff was really friendly and helpful when I needed it. The tv didn't have a wide selection, it didn't allow you to change to watch a dvd (I had brought my xbox along) my bathroom door appeared as if someone punched a hole in it & yanked the door open while it was locked. The room also had a kind of musky odor to it. But for $60 a night I got what I paid for.
Close to freeways. Really dirty. Carved graffiti on bathroom mirror. Bed was smelled and really uncomfortable. No soap offered at all. Not even hand soap. Terrible customer service. Wouldn't even let me check a bit early.
The staff is hospital, room and bathroom size is OK, nothing special.
Not at all. Horrible room. Tiny. Pubic hair/spiders in bathroom and super rude staff. Never going back
nice quiet and clean tv channels suck
The location is great. Directly across from Knotts Berry Farm and only 6 min away from Disneyland! The hotel in general looks old and rundown. There were a couple of roaches in the room. The pillow cases smelled of cigarettes. Housekeeping refused to change the pillow cases. There was only 1 pillow per queen size bed. When we requested additional pillows we were given 1 for each bed. Pillows were flat and old. All in all I would not stay there again.
Nothing at all!!! Oh wait maybe that it was 10 miles away from the beach. Oh yes I did not like any of the staff they were very rude and did not understand half of anything you said. ALso the manager (rude) gave out my room key I guess they thought we had checked out? Lol who knows but we were only there a day and reserved two nights. They just gave our key to some random people and it just so happend my lap top got stolen right along with my purse. But thank god the cops came let us watch cameras and just happend to catch that the people were still staying in the hotel and got our stuff back. After spending three hours looking at cameras on my vacation! So if you want the staff to just give your room key out and let your personal belongings get ransacked threw you go ahead and stay there! K! I will never go back
I liked that the room was clean and had a refrigerator and microwave. I did not like that there were mattresses outside the lobby. It made my first impression of the hotel very bad. Also, the staff were not friendly when checking in or asking questions and I was ignored a few times.
it was clean and quiet and close to knotts berry farm. breakfast menu was a bit sparse.
Only that it was close to Knotts .... The entire stay was terrible, noisy, dirty, smelly, and not very pleasant totally
the convenience of the location to other businesses in the area the claim of wireless internet access I could not access
I liked the cleanliness of the room and the pool and hot tub. Everything was very clean. I did not like the service, day time was very unprofessional and after hours/owners were not friendly. We called ahead to request flowers etc be brought in, and the answer wasn't even, "can we give you some phone numbers for delivery?" The answer was, "no. We don't do that." Not how we anticipated spending our 7th anniversary.Also their afterhours security gate has a metal tab sticking outinto the hallway... Not highlighted, and is actually the same color as the wall... In any case I now have a deep bruise and near fracture on my hand because I didn't see it, and walked right into it.
The only reason why I stayed after seeing the room is because I didn't want to lose my money. I did not feel safe at this place. The carpets were not cleaned it appeared, for years.
The closeness to the theme park which we visited in our trip. It was literaly a walk away.
My daughter and I checked into our room which was supposed to be a non-smoking room. It was not. The room had patches all over the walls where it looked like someone kicked and punched holes. The carpet was stained, frayed, and lumpy. The bed was pathetic and the dresser drawers wouldn't shut and they had graffiti on the inside of them. We told the lady that we could not stay there. So she gave us a key to a new room. It was better - or so I thought it would be. When I went to take a shower, I turned on the tub faucet and a CHUNK of tiny ants spurted out. This place is next to a nasty little liquor store where creeps hang out. It appears that some of the rooms are occupied by long-term renters who are scary.
Spacious rooms Price, should be lowered on sun-thurs
This guest did not leave comments about this hotel.
I thought this hotel was nice and very quiet. Staff was friendly and the hotel was well taken care of. They had a very nice flower garden down the whole front of the hotel. The only negative thing I can say is that the pool waas freezing.
room size was fairly large for the cheap price we paid
The lady owner at the front desk will price match and/or will have a lower price than priceline. Mattress was horrible. Springs poking you in everything.
This guest did not leave comments about this hotel.
I booked a room for one night for my family. This place is the scariest motel ever. It basically is used for long term stays by everyone there. They must keep one or two for nightly stays. I saw alot of activity going on here that was very scary to myself and my family. We were basically confined to our room because we were so frightened. I didn't even sleep the whole night because I thought something might happen. So please please please if you have a family DO NOT stay here.
The room was clean. The road noise was pretty bad, the smell of the room was unusual, there was a homeless looking person wheeling a shopping cart through the parking lot in the early evening. I will never stay at a one star hotel again.
It was very quiet and it was a nice place to stay were the bed was very comfortable and breakfast was good not much but it's was a good way to the morning I like everything
Beautiful property, Huge room, clean very confortable nothing
