This is a utilitarian motel, clean and safe but definitely not going to win any points for style. I rated it Very Good because it was a good value for the cost and it was walking distance to USC, where I was going for research.

Pretty high price for an average motel with terrible wifi (devices complain about untrusted SPN certificate source and when connected connection is too slow to even browse facebook). The room was clean and there was enough space, however service wasn't great when I tried to check in and there was some trouble with my credit card, didn't allow me to... More

The Vagabond Inn served its purpose for me and my girlfriend. It was clean and quiet. The host was nice. I would like to stay here again. The only issue is that we were on the bottom floor. If you are a light sleeper, consider bringing some ear plugs. The walls are a bit thin. All other guests were curious.

Vagabond USC is a great location for an overnight stay to enjoy a USC game; we have season tickets to USC football and enjoy staying overnight for late afternoon and evening games. No worries about parking.

The service was excellent from the front desk to the housekeeping. Front Desk personal was very helpful. The rooms were clean. Bathrooms were very clean and well kept. That is something that is very important to me. The beds are very comfortable. I wish I knew what mattress company made the mattress. Much more comfortable than some very expensive hotels... More

We stayed here on the recommendation of a friend because it's close to USC. It barely met our needs mainly because we were only there to sleep. The room felt damp, even with the AC on. We had noise problems late at night because smokers used the stairs near our room to hang out. If we were to stay there... More

This was the second time staying here. We enjoyed being walking distance to the USC Campus and LA coliseum while visiting our son. Our room was clean and comfortable. The front office and workers were very cordial. We were satisfied and would stay here again.

“If you are travelling as a couple choose the Queen bed rooms on the first floor (Or the floor at ground level). The rooms with the Kings Beds of course have bigger beds, but the bathrooms were smaller.”
