Have been staying here on our annual trips to San Diego for several years. It's a great location, close to the marina, with easy access to downtown San Diego and the beaches. Point Loma is full of locally owned businesses and restaurants, including the highly regarded Point Loma Seafoods, located just behind the Vagabond Inn. Rooms are clean, if looking... More

Arrived a little early and was able to still get settled in a room. Parking was free. Rooms were spacious and clean. Sunrise and sunset unbeatable. Convenient to all the sites we wanted to see. Price unbeatable.

I came for a business trip from Wichita (you know, the up at 4A to catch a flight kind of day). Had a great, long day in San Diego and needed a place to stay overnight.
