OK for a short stay. OK breakfast coffee juice muffins. Bed linen have stains.if you are on a tight budget can consider this option. Location is close to San Jose airport. Few restaurants nearby. Nothing else to comment.

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... More

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.

Hotel was very convenient to access. Having a Denny's right on the property is a big plus along with a 7-11 within one block. Free parking a real added benefit. Free internet. Staff was very friendly. A little noisy due to the airport. Room and bed were comfortable. A very good property for the price. Will stay there again on... More

I stay at the Vagabond quite frequently. I find it to be an average hotel. The rooms are for the most part clean, and the staff is accommodating. I am there about every two weeks. While the area is in need of upgrades, and I never use the pool. Which I hear is not heated but I do see kids... More
