There isn't anything extra special about the Vagabond Inn but the room was reasonably priced, very clean, and the staff friendly. We will stay again and would recommend the Vagabond Inn to our family and friends. We have a two day drive to visit family from our place in AZ to Pine Grove, CA and Bishop is a good place... More

We were pleasantly surprised. This hotel lived up to all its reviews. Brand new since the fire. Clean. Called only two hours before we needed the room (6 pm) and one was available! Be sure to call for reservations.

On our way to South Lake Tahoe, my friend and her two little girls stopped at Vagabond Inn where we had made reservations for one night. We got there around 1:00 am after an excruciatingly long drive from San Diego, just happy to have finally made it. As soon as we got into our room, my friend's girls (almost 3... More

We stayed here three nights. First day back we're locked out. When a janitor opens for us the room is empty. When I go down to the reception the woman working is accusing me of not been staying in the room we slept in and also saying she checked me in to another room. After a while the janitor guys...

We stayed here one night on the way to Disneyland. The hotel is a bit dated but clean and the rooms are large. We got a room on the back side of the hotel and it was very quiet. The free breakfast is decent. They have the typical cold cereal, fruit and danishes, and also toaster waffles and instant oatmeal.... More

This is the first time that we have used the Vagabond chain and if the other motels are like this one, then we will continue to use them. A very spacious and well decorated room with a real comfortable bed. Within easy walking distance of many restaurants and fast food outlets.
