No problem with parking, plenty of space, area was very clean. Very courteous receptionist, easy and fast check in. Room was very clean. TV worked perfect. Cold night and heater warmed enough the room. Comfortable bed, very happy stay. I will come back.

This was the worst place I have ever stayed. No Internet; no ESPN (they have the cheap version of Dish TV); clientele were very shaky; drug deals happening in the parking lot; ants in the bathroom. When I reported these things, the desk clerk just looked at me and said: we have never had these problems. REALLY?! It was clean...that's...

This is a utilitarian motel, clean and safe but definitely not going to win any points for style. I rated it Very Good because it was a good value for the cost and it was walking distance to USC, where I was going for research.

Pretty high price for an average motel with terrible wifi (devices complain about untrusted SPN certificate source and when connected connection is too slow to even browse facebook). The room was clean and there was enough space, however service wasn't great when I tried to check in and there was some trouble with my credit card, didn't allow me to...

The Vagabond Inn served its purpose for me and my girlfriend. It was clean and quiet. The host was nice. I would like to stay here again. The only issue is that we were on the bottom floor. If you are a light sleeper, consider bringing some ear plugs. The walls are a bit thin. All other guests were curious.

Vagabond USC is a great location for an overnight stay to enjoy a USC game; we have season tickets to USC football and enjoy staying overnight for late afternoon and evening games. No worries about parking.

The service was excellent from the front desk to the housekeeping. Front Desk personal was very helpful. The rooms were clean. Bathrooms were very clean and well kept. That is something that is very important to me. The beds are very comfortable. I wish I knew what mattress company made the mattress. Much more comfortable than some very expensive hotels...
