We stayed here for one night before getting the boat to Catalina the next day. Our boat was cancelled so we had to stay another night and we refused to stay here again! The room looked like something out of a crime scene - rips in the lamp shades and stains on the bed sheets with the smell of weed...

Avoid like a rash - checked out 20 mins after I checked in. Loosing $168 AUD is worth it - you can't pay me enough to sleep in this hotel. **Room** 1/10. Had a very dated curtains and bedding but the big drawback was the smell...can't explain it but it put me off, maybe I am fussy. Bedsheets were very...

Stayed this past weekend, Very disappointed. Came to town for a convention. We had only one lamp that worked, no bulbs in they other lamps, couldn't get the cable to work, lost electricity in the morning, from using my blow dryer. Had to wait about 30 minutes until they got it back on. The room definitely need work to be...

Embarked on a cruise Dec. 31st, 2016, but drove to Long Beach on the 30th to be sure we didn't run into any difficulties on the road the day of loading. So... we decided on the Vagabond for a few reasons. First was it is very close to the pier for the Carnival Miracle, our ship. Another was the price...

rooms were specious and clean. Staff were friendly and professional. Amenities were comparable with value. The only recommendation is to upgrade the continental breakfast with a few more choices. Location was great for the venue we were attending.

We chose this hotel because of the proximity to our daughter's home and we just needed a place to sleep. First hotel I've stayed in that did not have a coffee maker or a hairdryer in the room. Coffee was available in the breakfast area until 10 am. Breakfast was meager. Beds and towels were clean but carpets and especially...

Cheap and cheerful is a reasonable description. Beds are comfortable, bathroom clean, and plenty of hot water in the shower. For the money how much does one expect? If you want hot breakfast and airconditioned hallways, stay somewhere else and pay a LOT more. We have not had a bad experience in this very conveniently located hotel. Breakfast is self...

Not a bad motel only a block from the beach. They also take pets for only $10 extra. The rooms have been recently upgrades and were very clean. Plumbing need redoing and only basic analog TV, but room rates were$100 less a night than any other nearby hotel. Free continental breakfast is included and there is some covered parking.

We went into this stay with no idea what we were getting into. We have never travelled this far from home and this was the cheapest hotel close to beach. The breakfast is not good, but the rest is great! The pool is perfect for any hotel.
