22-Jan-2020 Verified Review, stayed from Sat Jan 18 to Sun Jan 19 2020 at a $62.78 average nightly rate.
Overall Score1.0/ 5
I would not stay here again even if it were free! The sheets were very dingy and full of long black hair. Blankets had multiple burn holes in them (this was supposed to be non smoking hotel). Pillowcases had stains on them so we had to put towels on them. The office area smelled like cigarette smoke. The hallway carpets were filthy and the area around the hotel was very sketchy. There was even a transient sleeping in the parking lot which only holds maybe 20 cars. It was so bad that we couldn't stay our second night, we went to a different hotel. Ironically the hotel we went to said that there were two other families that also came saying the same thing about the Vagabond.

Overall Score2.0/ 5
Low price but no frills. Bedsheets looked stained but everything else looked clean. Breakfast was hardly a breakfast. I chose Starbucks conveniently across the street. Parking garage was full so I had to park on the dark street and didn't feel safe.
