Stayed here to attend a birthday party nearby, the Check-in & Check-out was fast and simple. Room was clean and the Bed was comfy. Good Location, close to restaurants, shopping and bars. Minutes from Uptown Whittier.

Selected this hotel because I have stayed at other Vagabonds and this location meet my needs. Easy to find, had a mini-fridge and microwave. For the price I paid it did the job. I would book this hotel again if I have to stay in the area.
