*Hotel is over run with shady people; obvious drug deals, prostitution and drama all hours of the day & night. *Got property stolen out of my car. The managers/owners do not care what riff raff hangs on the property as long as they're getting money. Over priced. *No "continental breakfast" (only pastry, juice & coffee) *Only plus - Room is...

My mother and I stayed at the Vagabond as part of our cross-country bucket list trip. The young woman at the front desk was very friendly and helpful. She printed out directions for us to get to the beach, and provided another print-out of local attractions. Wifi worked very well. The room was comfortable, and we were hugely surprised at...

It's a so-so area, as far as the neighborhood goes. It is close to everything to do in San Diego, though. We went to the Ballast Point Brewery in Little Italy, the beach at Coronado and Henry's pub at Gas Lamp. There is also a park close by in Chula vista to watch the sunset. They put us in the...

this is our first stay at the vagabond..we live in mexico and travel stateside regularly. previously we always stayed at the goodnite inn...but have become disillusioned due noise, location, and demand for credit info (the code on back of card...which we never give out), even after years of staying there... we were happy with the vagabond. free internet, mostly quiet....

We were in town for our girls to go to ComicCon and needed the best value we could get. We stayed 5 nights here. This hotel is a bit outdated. The windows are the old style with louvers, which didn't close. Some had gaps of almost an inch. And the air conditioners have a motion sensor, so they shut off...

I booked 3 nights here at the beginning of August. I was surprised how run down this place looked, but decided to stay anyway (big mistake). The room smelled bad, but I thought it was because the air conditioning wasn't turned on. I noticed there were ants by the door and in the bathroom. The next day I went to...
