I recently stayed for 1 night in the Vagabond on my way home to Australia. The rooms were clean and very well appointed and even though the airport was nearby I was not kept awake by planes coming and going. The breakfast is great value and gave heaps of options. The hotel sits next to the water and the walking...

Great location nice location for restaurants and jog along the bay. Service was subpar by employees, guest were very outgoing, and may go back. Beds were not as soft add we would have liked, ran out of soap, breakfast was very appealing.

Our room faces the airport and was close enough to hear the jets.Recommend you book rooms facing away from the airport. Central location giving you access to either Downtown SF or San Jose within 35 minutes by car. My room was spacious, and bed was clean & comfortable. Food was very good (advertised as continental breakfast but included lots of...

We just needed an overnight for an early flight. SFO hotels seem expensive. This one was reasonable and I now know why. This is a slightly painted up old motel. The rooms facing the bay have no sound proofing; the noise from air traffic is mind numbing.

The Vagabond Inn was close to the airport(10 min) It was a very clean comfortable room with a balcony and view of the water. It included a very good breakfast and was located close to numerous restaurants. It was walking distance to a gas station store for snacks and beverages. For the price it was very good.

Reviewed 7 March 2015

The room is comfortable, clean, and visually okay but it happened to be on the one side of the building that faces the airport. The windows did not dampen any of the noise from the street or the jet noise from the airport. Unfortunately, this made my stay quite unpleasant and almost unbearable specially during those busy times at the...

Basic hotel, but perfect for park and fly. I've stay here many times before a flight and never had any problems with my room or leaving my car for long term. The room is just a place to sleep, they have given me ocean view a few times but I'm never there long enough to enjoy it. The parking for...

Honestly, it was shady. Do not rec. if you are travelling alone or with a girlfriend, as I was. Some of the patrons looked downright scary and attempted to converse with me. When we returned from dinner, the screen to our room was pried open. We were moved immediately. Check out the elephant bar next door!

Nice hotel, but I remebered it to be cheap or, at least, affordable. I ended paying more than 100$ per night, which is what you pay in the close Hollyday Inn or Mariott. The vagabond inn is structured like a motel, and so it should remain. There is no reason why its cost increases so much lately.
