If you visit here bring your own plunger and something to put on the floor over wet carpet. Be sure to lock your door as they don't always register you to the room and will send others there after you. Keys will need to be reset every night. More problems here in one visit than I have experienced in all...

The pet fee of $10. is very reasonable, but we paid $130. for a very basic, but clean, room. The front desk staff are very polite & helpful. The continental breakfast was very limited in selection. Because of the pet policy I would stay here again.

Very good service at the front desk. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Very convenient having the restaurant in the same area. Only issue is parking, had to go to other lot in the back which looked not too safe and secure.

The Vagabond Inn is a regular get-away destination for our family. It is conveniently located with beach access via a pedestrian bridge and an easy walk to downtown. The staff is reliably friendly and helpful. The rooms are very nice with a great TV channel selection.The adjacent restaurant is convenient with a menu that takes us back to our 1960's...

I liked the amenities, cleanliness, pool, hot tub, access to the beach, housekeeping services, convenient parking, and rates, of course. But the best thing about this Vagabond is the front desk staff. Amazingly, they're ALL GREAT! Whether I'm talking to Jenny, Deborah, Amy, Jay, Dan, or Chyna, I'm always treated well. They're friendly, helpful, and always willing to consider special...

Driving down the CA coast I needed a place to sleep. This hotel was incredibly cheap and the location is pretty safe. I was able to walk to the nearby restaurants which were amazing. Downtown Ventura is a pretty nice area and doesn't seem like you have to worry about crime too much. Like I said, this was a great...

Close to downtown and main street with restaurants, bars, movie theater on one side and beach on the other side at walking distance Clean rooms Would like to receive Complementary water bottles (for late night check ins it's hassle to step out for water after long day)

Walking distance to Main Street and all the downtown shops. Also, under a 10 minute walk to the beach and pier. Clean spacious rooms and comfy beds. Pool and jacuzzi are a plus. The onsite restaurant is great!

Overall great stay! The staff was friendly and very accommodating. Pros: Walkway over the freeway to the beach & Pier was right off the back of the property; walking distance to downtown w/many restaurant options within a few blocks; free continental breakfast Cons: May have been our location (first floor) but it was very noisy - it felt like anyone...
