It's good to hear that you liked our rooms, but we are obviously very disappointed with your description of your stay with us. We will be discussing your review thoroughly with our management team to discover why the issue with the pricing arose, and why you were dealt with so abruptly. This is not at all the service that we...

The Vagabond Inn Executive Bakersfield Downtowner was a great place to stay! Nicely remodeled and clean, quiet night sleep, very reasonable price and the attendant even suggested I park my car right across from the office window in a well lighted covered area where my car was safe and they could keep an eye on it while I slept peacefully:D...

Just outside of downtown (5 minute walk to bars) is this new en clean motel. low price, nice room. The lady at the desk was very friendly and helpful. You park the car underneath the hotel, which fells good as this location borders on a less nice part of town.

I planned for this review to be very bad. I was very upset with Hotwire booking me into this hotel with a crossed out $117 rate for a 2.5 star hotel. I was surprised to find that Hotwire has the hotel listed as the Downtowner and not the Vagabond. I am guessing they are managing the site with Hotwire and...

The hotel is under constructions and there is a lot of material all around the same place. The hallways were dirty and smelly and our room was in a very open space that I believe outside people could easily get to, I was scared. The contractors started to break the walls at 7am, and would hit things all morning on...

We stayed here 2 times on our way to and back from Las Vegas. Both times the rooms were clean and cozy. The place easy to find. There are multiple food options at walking distance. My kid liked the waffles at breakfast.
