    • Liked: Cleanliness
    • Disliked: Amenities

    It was clean and staff was friendly. Now to the bad part, it had no blow dryers, no iron, only 10 channels to watch on the TV, towels were cheap, small and thin, breakfast was waffles or cereal, no luggage cart, sink leaked and it was super noisy. We were here for work and worked long hours, I thought by staying at an Executive hotel things would be different. All night long I could here the people upstairs, people slamming doors and the breakfast room was in the middle of the hotel rooms, so at 6:00am in the morning you could hear people making noise and yelling.

    Nice and clean, but noisy

    Hotel was clean, staff friendly, service good, but next to a very busy street, so very noisy. Room was remodeled, but the laminate flooring had several spots where there were spaces between the boards (not installed properly), and the bathroom tile, while new and clean, had much of the grout missing (like it was never fully grouted in the first place). The windows had wooden blinds instead of curtains, so the only fabric used in the whole room was the bed coverings, so the room was a big echo chamber with all the traffic noise. Curtains and carpeting would go a long way toward making the room quieter and a bit more "warm." Everything else was fine, and the price was reasonable. They are a bit hampered by their location, so the noise would be tricky to avoid, but the staff was nice and friendly, and the room was very clean - just loud!

    The worst hotel experience in my life. Way Gross!!

    This place is absolutely disgusting. Not to mention the surrounding neighborhood is very sketchy. Upon tracking in, the front desk agent was spending time with a guy who looked like a crackhead, and made my friend and I uncomfortable. When we were checking in he just sat on the couch in the lobby. We got into our rooms, which were absolutely disgusting as well. There was different colored human hair all over the comforter, the blanket underneath, the sheet underneath that, and the mattress pad. The room looked like it had not been clean in months. actually grabbed towels out of the bathroom, placed them on top of the bed and used my own sweatshirts to keep myself warm as I slept overnight, because I was so disgusted by the condition of the bed. The pillow cases were non-existent, they just left pillows which were stained yellow. The grounds were very dark, dirty, and look like crackheads used it for their Hangouts. I will absolutely never stay at vagabond again.. I wish I had done more research on this piece of s*** hotel before booking it. Do yourself a favor, stay away!
