Great location. Good value. I enjoyed my stay. The bed was comfortable. The room was clean. The rug needed to be cleaned. The bathroom needed updating. I have family in the area and the location works well for me. Added bonus, they allow dogs.

Could use better bed pillows & thicker blanket or comforter on bed. Diner on location was very good, recommend pecan belgian waffles, sausage over bacon, bacon was well done-over cooked. Pool could be a few degrees warmer, still very nice for a morning swim. Great central location near freeway & Ventura Pier. I liked having a mini fridge/microwave & the...

From check in to check out, everything was poor. Unfriendly check in lady "barking" at us as soon as we entered the lobby. Hotel room a disgrace. Carpets haven't been cleaned in years relying on the spots seen. Bedside lights not working. Opening up the bed sheets, they looked unwashed a full of what seems to be dust or dirt....

This is a great place to spend some time near the ocean with your favorite dog and not pay a fortune. The staff and property are totally dog friendly...to friendly dogs. Easy access to motel...Walking distance to beach and pier. Good price for a good pet friendly stay.

The accommodations and the site were dreadful. The property has a back lot, vagrant camp, non guest cars cruising the parking area and lacks enough guest parking spaces, liter including toilet tissue and unmentionable waste in areas where guests walk etc, sticky stains on the carpet. I would not stay here, instead I drove 8 hours to get home!

I'm sorry that you were unable to stay at our hotel. I am not aware of vagrants or non guest cars behind the building, but I will make sure someone goes back there once every hour to check from now on. Thank you for bringing this to my attention.

I wanted to say thank you and show appreciation for Deborah on 4/29, the wonderful front desk person who helped me resolve a billing issue from one of expedia's partners, cheapmotels.com. I waited over 40mins for them to correct the rate I was given online and she spoke on my behalf and demanded a fax with confirmation of the new...

Great stay! The room was nice and comfortable, plus the little fridge was great to keep a few things cold - the room also has a small microwave.. Very convenient to shops, restaurants, the Historic CA Mission, parks and easy walk to the beach and pier....If you love walking this is an excellent location! The only thing that we didn't...

This is a no frills inn. It is right by the train tracks, but we like trains, so we didn't mind. Otherwise, the location is good, as it is walking distance to downtown shops and restaurants, as well as to the bridge that crosses over the freeway to take you to restaurants on the beach. Spencer McKenzie's is just across...

I cannot believe the cleanliness, customer service and outright laziness of all the staff at the vagabond Inn! Which is the correct name for it because of all the beach bums and other interlopers that creep around this hotel. I have been begged for more money from the homeless I should file them on my taxes. In room bugs, refrigerator...

“lower lever rooms were noisy, could tell by the open doors with people handing outside. The stairs and railings were worn and filthy.”
