臭い以外はよかった

Posted Jul 25, 2015
Pros: 設備はよい
Cons: 臭い
Location: コリアンタウン
部屋は綺麗だが、ペストコントロールなのかペンキなのかわからないが強烈な化学物質の臭いがした。気持ち悪くなるくらいだったので窓を開けて、浴室の換気をつけて食事に出かけたが、戻ってきてもマシになってなかった。 1ブロック歩けばショッピングセンターや韓国料理のお店がたくさんあるが、夜10時になるとホテルの入り口が閉まるので、そのくらいの治安レベルなのだろうと推測される。もちろん夜は出歩かなかったので、実際にどの程度の治安かは不明。

Better than expected!

Posted Jun 30, 2015
Pros: Friendly staff, large comfortable rooms.
Cons: For the kind of cheap hotel/motel gap in the market this hotel is filling - it's perfect. Obviously, it could always get more high-end from there!
Location: There's USC. There's also a lovely place Mercado La Paloma around the corner, I recommend for street food. The Pub does a Horchata Ice Cream Sandwich!
We got this hotel on a cheap Expedia rate and were expecting much less than we got! It was a very large, clean room. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. The complimentary breakfast every morning was small, but very good. There was a nice pool, and the hotel was in a very convenient (walking) distance from USC.

Not bad

Posted Jun 29, 2015
We stayed one night While in the LA area and it wasn't bad. Rooms are decent. Beds are comfertable but the bathrooms probably need to be updated. It's not the Marriott but the room served its purpose. The staff was very friendly and housekeeping was too. Wouldn't mind staying here again if I had to.

Nice place, value option

Posted Jun 25, 2015
Pros: Free Wifi and great location
Cons: Add toothpaste and take care of the pool
Location: CVS next door
Great location. Staff was nice. They do not offer extra toothpaste, razors etc. Low budget they say, however I think they could add that. Pool looked terrible. Algae growing. Would recommend better pool service for pool users.

Good place to stay

Posted May 21, 2015
Pros: Quiet, despite being on a busy street, clean, good breakfast, easy to access everything location.
Cons: We almost drove past the narrow, subtle driveway each time we went in.
Location: USC, the Science Center, Natural History Museum, the Coliseum, several restaurants, Staples Center, SO many things are near by.
My daughter and I needed a hotel close to the Science Center at USC so we could attend the State Science Fair. This hotel was so close we could walk.

If You Want an "Affordable" Hotel Near USC ...

Posted May 20, 2015
Pros: If you want a hotel conveniently located near the University of Southern California (USC) campus, this is it. Also convenient to CA Science Center.
Cons: The price for this hotel would be laughable except that it's in the middle of Los Angeles. The complimentary breakfast could use some protein.
Location: Univ. of Southern CA (USC), CA Science Center, IMAX, CS African American Museum. Exposition Park, LA Natural History Museum, LA Memorial Coliseum.
I was looking for an "affordable" hotel near the California Science Center, which is adjacent to the University of Southern California (USC) campus. There are many other higher-quality hotels, but they come with a much higher room price. Lower-priced hotels were also lower quality had poor ratings. So why stay at the Vagabond? It's a 2- to 3-star hotel with a 4-star price but it also saves you immense amounts of time in L.A.'s crazy traffic scene if you need to be near USC or the CA Science Center. The property is older and not in tip-top shape but its comfortable and clean. Our room had a comfortable bed, working TV, refrigerator, microwave and A/C. The shower and bathroom all worked and were clean--although there were holes in the wall where towel racks had been pulled off. The room and property seemed secure enough. There is some noise from the nearby busy street, but not beyond what you'd expect in any city. The hotel pool looked well maintained and inviting--nothing fancy. I wish I had time to enjoy it. Good free WiFi with acceptable speed for E-mail, web surfing. The staff seemed polite and efficient. The breakfast setup is in the small front lobby and consists of bagel, donuts, cereal, milk, coffee, and juice. I didn't see any protein. I was there for a middle school/high school event so the lobby was swamped first thing in the morning. I blame the event, not the hotel. There are numerous restaurants within walking distance--a mix of sit-down & fast food.

Para curtas temporadas, downtown LA

Posted May 11, 2015
Pros: Localização
Cons: Café da manhã é absolutamente o mínimo
Location: USC, Centro de Convenções.
Para poucos dias, no caso de evento no Centro de Convenções ou algo na USC, ótima localização.
