Nice hotel near the trolley and bus station.

Posted Apr 8, 2014
Pros: Really nice front desk staff.
Cons: Water boiling machine could be made available in the room.
Location: The nearest trolley station, bus station and premium shopping mall is just 10 minutes walk away. A 24/7 liquor mini mart, restaurant is next door.
Overall it is a good experience. Room has both heater and air conditioner, bed is rather comfortable, television has good coverage of channels like CBS, HBO and NBC. Bath tube is a little stained, I would not recommend using the enjoying a hot bath, shower is fine. There is a little problem with the coffee making machine as the heating pad does not heat the water till it boils, it just warms up the water a little. Generally, the room is clean and comfortable. Value for money.

Room was very clean

Posted Apr 7, 2014
Room was very clean and front desk person very nice. The Continental breakfast was not all that great not to many choices. The bed was a queen but very low and uncomfortable. Also I wish the room had a chair to sit on. But over all it was a nice stat.

I wouldn't stay there again

Posted Apr 1, 2014
Pros: The area
Cons: The staff, and more parking.
Location: sea world, beach, old own, San deigo zoo
We got there, and construction was going on outside our room our entire stay, then our electricity got turned off as well as our water for about 4 hours and just our room. They staff didn't do anything but say sorry and move on. It was disappointing.

Construction and noisy

Posted Mar 24, 2014
Pros: The staff was nice and did their best to make our stay comfortable. The rate from expedia was also quite affordable. So we could spend our money in SD
Cons: Parking and the noise from construction.
Location: it was right off the highway to it was accessible for cabs and to quickly travel from adventure to adventure
The hotel staff was pleasant but the rooms were less so. There were towels from previous guests, and fresh towels were hard to come by. Additionally, the room was on the dirty side. The worst part of the experience was that there was heavy construction during our stay. The construction started at 6am and would continue until noon making it very difficult to sleep in, or at all. The construction also limited the available parking so cars would have to be stacked on top of one another, so the parking lot became a very tight and difficult maneuver.

Comfy hotel not bad for a night's stay...

Posted Mar 21, 2014
Stayed here twice (once by myself and other time with my family) and I was really satisfied with both times. I think the best part about staying here is experiencing the hospitality of the staff. They were very friendly and helpful; they were always ready to fulfill your request, presenting themselves in a professional manner at all times. The price range I got was a bargain from Expedia and I would recommend looking into this site before booking a room straight at the hotel. The only cons I have to say about this hotel is the condition of the appliances (broken refrigerator and blow dryer). The style of the rooms are out-dated, but clean nevertheless. Complimentary breakfast was a plus just wish it lasted till 10 am rather than 930am. Heated pool was small but nice and warm. Overall I would definitely stay here again.

Near hospitals for surgery

Posted Mar 10, 2014
I go to ucsd for surgery monthly for five years and I've stayed@all the hotels. Vagabond is older hotel but room had new carpet, frig & microwave w/pillow top mattress. Staff was much more helpful & friendly than competition in area. Quiet the entire weekend. Breakfast was small but fine. I had no problem w/parking in 3 nights I stayed. I'll be staying here again before any other of competition hotels.

Convenient location, close to everything.

Posted Mar 7, 2014
Room smelled funny, air condition and refrigerator were not working. I'm not sure if they serve the "free breakfast" extremely early because when I checked out at 10am nothing was available.

Parking is atrocious! Hotel website is misleading! Hotel rooms are dated!
