Okay for a cheap room close to beach

Posted Aug 19, 2015
Pros: Staff was friendly, close to the beach, easy access.
Cons: Rooms need to be updated and the continental breakfast is very lacking.
Location: The beach and pier are just a couple minutes away walking distance, the mall and other shopping centers are about 5 minutes away driving.
Very close to the beach and easily accessed. Train goes by right behind hotel and blows its horn even late at night. Supposed to have a "hot" continental breakfast but it's a small assortment of tiny muffins, croissants, english muffins, bruised fruit, and coffee. The restaurant that's adjacent to the hotel has good food for a good price and the hotel does have a heated pool. If you're looking for something on the cheaper side, near the beach, then this isn't too bad.

Great Beach & Downtown Location

Posted Aug 17, 2015
Pros: The wonderful staff and old time beach motel atmosphere.
Location: Visit the beach, pier, downtown shopping and great variety of restaurants Ventura offers.
The pedestrian bridge to the pier is just outside the rear of the hotel. The walk to downtown Ventura is very short to explore all of the shopping and eateries. Their coffee shop is a wonderful visit to the 1960's with traditional meals and very friendly service. This Vagabond Inn is a typical old time beach motel place to stay. It is very comfortable with a wonderfully helpful staff. If one is looking for a luxury resort it is not the place for you. However, if you like old time California beach places to relax for a couple of days this will fill the bill. They feature a nice pool and jaquzzi area. We will be back soon!

I'm sorry we were booked up, but that's because of the County Fair going on. Come back and stay again soon!

It was a terrible experience. The room we were originally going to stay smelled like urine. The other room was not any better.

I did not hear about that. Normally if there is a problem with a room, we make note of it so we can fix the problem in the morning. There was no mention of it. I'm sorry.

Localisation et prix !

Posted Aug 3, 2015
Nous sommes arrêtés une nuit dans ce motel en descendant la Highway 1. Nous avons été charmé par le petit centre-ville qui se trouve à environ 10 minutes à pied, idéal pour bien manger et pour vous dégourdir les jambes après une journée de route. Par contre, le déjeuner est ridicule. Tout de même un bon rapport qualité-prix !

Good and bad

Posted Jul 29, 2015
Pros: Close to the beach and pier. They had a walkway, maybe 200 yds to the pier! The staff was pleasant and acted quickly to your requests/concerns.
Cons: The facility is old. It needs remodeling. Backs up to a Metrolink track. Carpets need replacing..
Location: Close to Oxnard/Camarillo [4-10 mi]. The beach/pier, downtown and mission are 5 minutes Went to Santa Barbara [25 mi] and Solvang [65
We checked in about 8:30 pm with no problem. We didn't get a chance to really look at our room until the morning. The carpet was worse than filthy! When your feet, socks or shoes were on it, you were picking up a dirty black film. It actually washed off jet black in the shower! I want to say that the room itself was old but very clean. I complained at the front desk and they moved us within an hour to a different room. The carpet was fine. While the motel was very close to the beach and had a pool we would not stay here again.

I'm sorry about the carpet. The guest before you must have been a long term stay. We have the carpets cleaned regularly. but sometimes we have to skip a room if it is occupied. I'm sorry that we didn't catch it before you did.
