Nothing special here. Clean room with decent bed. A couple of minor plumbing issues but it all worked. Check-in and out was easy. Close to airport and easy to get downtown. Lots of families there but noise was not an issue

Not bad, sort of what I expected for the cost, convenient to the airport and a great alternative to the high cost of rooms at other hotels in the area. Staff was very friendly and stores and food places nearby.

Vagabond offers a good, clean and friendly place for a night before a flight. Don't waste your time looking further because you won't find anything. Everything else is overpriced and overbooked. We got a non-smoking room, which was clean with hot showers and a comfortable bed. Free wifi and plenty of channels on the TV. For an airport overnight, it...

We enjoyed out stay and it was easy to leave our care safe and sound while we traveled to Molokai. Thank You! Although the room was comfortable it would be nice to see some remodel and freshening up of the rooms.

We checked into our room and it had a very strong odor of cigarettes. We were moved to a new room that was much better, no odor. All this was taking place at 10:00 PM at night. In the new room there were no extra blankets, only the quilt on the bed with sheets. We were cold. The heater was...

I stayed at the Vagabond Inn because all other options were either non-existed or were $400-$500 a night for a not-so-fancy hotel. I found this property to be clean and well-maintained. There was a small stain on the bed spread, but otherwise just fine for one night.
