We checked in late & was given a room way in the back. The room was clean enough. We had a 7AM flight the next morning. Wokeat5 AM for quick shower. The shower would not turn on. Also, the in room refrigerator did not work to put our bottled water. Told the desk clerk the next morning and all he...

There is no information on the web site to say that I have to ask them if I can use the 10th day free card in Vagabond Inn San Jose (SJC Airport) while making the reservation, just said we need to present the 10th Night Free Card at Check-in to receive validation. So I show up my 10th Night Free...

The guys at the front desk was very nice and checked us in in a timely manner. When we got to the room it smelled stuffy and warm. We opened to door to let some fresh air in. The room was clean but the floor was horrible. There was a sticky spot on the floor that our socks would stick...

Found the staff very friendly. Room lighting quite dim. Refrigerator had no control inside it, had to get under the desk to plug it in. Limited continental breakfast. Good convenience to the light rail to convention center.

This place was a last ditch effort for me. It's outdated, dirty and noisy. I found old beer bottle caps in the room. Linens should have been burned although they appeared clean. Will never return. Ever

Good location, security was good (and necessary) room was old but fairly large and clean. Breakfast items were included (just ok). But overall good value for money. Fairly noisy because people are coming and going all the time since it´s an airport stop.

This is an excellent choice of hotel/motel for the money. Very cleanly, all amenities present including a small refridgerator and microwave, coffee maker for the room and adequate flat screen TV for the room. Air conditioning system worked perfectly especially now that is it summer. Facility has a pool as well though I did not use it on this trip.

A pretty basic place to stay which is what I was looking for. Decent shower, bed not uncomfortable. Has a microwave and minifridge, which is more than I can say for the Marriott Marquis. It's not great but it does the job. At this price point in San Jose I'm not sure you can do better.

I don't know about you, but I'm tired of reviewers who just don't get it. Maybe I don't either -- who am I to say -- but most of the negatives people come up with are irrelevant to the vast majority of the reasons I travel! Take the Vagabond Inn, for example. Your experience will vary depending upon why you're...

I don't whether we were extremely unlucky with neighbors for all 4 nights (Skrillex fan, noisy dog owner and a couple in crisis) or is it regular, but it was noisy. Also parking lot is sometimes a gathering place for teens. But it was clean, and nothing bad happened.

“My room overlooked the pool and was relatively quiet. All rooms are set back from the street, and noise didn't seem to be an issue.”
