The room was not the best and kind of old but for the price it's ok. We just needed a place to sleep so we just stayed for 1 night. Staff was friendly and I didn't have any inconvenience.

The place is very run down. I have been staying at the Vagabond since it was a Motel 6 and the place was in much better shape back when it was a Motel 6. Switched rooms twice (first room smelled like feces, second room smelled of cigarettes) and the last room the TV needed to be setup and the refrigerator did not work. The issues were corrected within 10 minutes from when I informed the Staff. Exceptional Customer Service.

We arrived at about 12:30 am. Front desk staff was amazing. The bathroom shower in our room was so dirty my 18 year old son wouldn’t use it. It also has a strange something like mold smell in the room. I do not plan to stay there again.
