"could have been so much better"
Half used bar of soap left in shower window. Hbo channels advertised weren't working. Power went out around 6:30 am. We hung around until 9 then checked out. Continental breakfast did not have coffee or juice due to no power. Refused partial refund. Offered late checkout instead. Why? To wait in the dark?Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to a major attraction"
Convenient location next to very attractive landmark hotel/restaurant/ shopping center "Madonna Inn." Off the thoroughfare, therefore quiet in spite of excellent accessibility. Complimentary continental breakfast was very disappointing, just cheap sweet stuff.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Convenient and reasonable"
Friendly and efficient desk staff. Let us check in early. Room was adequate for our needs.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Descent place mattress was ready to be retired but over all it was not bad. We enjoyed being able to walk to the Madonna Inn after having a glass of wine and having dinner also right there we had access to a mall, Dennys, Ihop. Reasonable priced and helpful staff.Genuine Expedia guest review
I was surprised to read so many harsh reviews. Our stay was comfortable. I found the room to be clean, simple and of a great value, Our contact with staff was limited to those at the check in desk and we found them to be pleasant and helpful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The room was dingy and in serious need of maintenance. The first room we were given reeked of cigarette smoke, the entire motel is non-smoking, and we had to move to a new room. Second room smelled fine, but there were huge sections of the wall that paint had peeled off and had not been repaired. The towels were tissue thin, the facial tissue box was […] empty after about 5 tissues, the carpet was in dire need of a shampoo, or better yet replaced. The bath/shower area was also in dire need of repairs. Will NOT stay here again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Good price - good location - nothing fancy, but we would stay there again.Genuine Expedia guest review
Hotel locationGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel needs to be updated. Everything is worn (except for the newer small flat screen TV). However it is clean and the staff is friendly and helpful. They also offer a 20% discount at Denny's next door. There ar free muffins, juice and cofee in the morning.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Ok for me"
The only I don't like is the towels are not white enough. I don't think that's the original color. Other things are fine. Friendly staffs, breakfast simple but already enough for me - muffins, donuts, apples, coffee and OJ. At least we didn't need to buy outside before we went to our destination. What can we expect more to a 2-star inn, right?Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"good bargain accomodations"
We got a great rate on hotels.com. Good place for the price.very nice managment. Older outdated rooms but very clean and comfortableGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Great spot to stop along the coast. Right off the highway, short drive into Morro Bay or Pismo, but cheaper than staying right on the beach. Lots of stores across the street to resupplyGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We paid too much money for an old dingy room- The bed covers were ripped , We asked for Non smoking- And felt like we walked into the smokers lounge:/ We called the front desk- Nothing was done about it:/ I have to say the morning desk clerk was very charming, welcoming and a nice change from the rest of our visit!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
From the pictures on the hotel ad it looked nice and clean. First thing I noticed was the bottom of the bathroom door and floor, broken and mold under the molding. Found a empty Mountain Dew soda can behind the nightstand while I was looking for the electrical outlet. Thin walls and ceiling. I thought neighbor above me was gonna fall through the ceiling. […] But the absolute worst thing about our stay was the Hot Tub. The ad makes it look nice and we enjoy the Jacuzzi at night. This Hot Tub was filthy and smelled like urine. Apparently, no pool man has addressed this water in a while. Totally ruined the night. for the area, the price was fairly reasonable, but I see why it was rated low. I was in need of a room for Sunday night, so I guess I got what I paid for. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Convenient location, nice room"
We were able to get into our room early on the day of arrival. Everything worked great and it was good to have a little freezer compartment in the refrigerator. The beds were comfortable. The soap was very brittle and crumbled, but I usually bring my own anyway. We requested a first floor unit and opened the windows, but I was uncomfortable with leaving […] them open all night. The AC was adequate but not great. I would stay here again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Granted SLO is not usually a location where air conditioning is needed, but it was HOT the night we stayed and the AC unit was up so high on the wall that no one less than 5' 5" could reach the controls. Otherwise we got what we expected.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Wish the cooler system was in the room instead of hidden behind a wall, it was pretty hot.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Ok for 1 night"
The beds were uncomfortable and the towels didn't feel clean :( definitely would bring our own pillows and towels. The bathroom/sink needs remodeling.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel with a pool. Next to Denny's and shop"
Enjoyed the pool and Denny's and the shopping plaza across the street.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Vagabond Inn San Luis Obispo"
Hotel was clean, although dated. Rates reasonable. Great location. Overall, good place to stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not what I expected"
The room smelled very musty and unused. Took a long time for the wall air conditioner to even begin to cool the room. The beds were not very comfortable. None of the electrical outlets would hold a device. Could not charge a phone, heat a curling iron, etc. Called to ask for a roll-a-way bed. Was told that they would check....never received a call back. All […] in all - I was very disappointed. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Very nice hotel, good location and reasonable rate"
I would highly recommend it, very close to Morro Bay and the price is much less.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Not worth $200"
I also wished that the hotel websites had Motel 6 on the top of their lists (they were half the price and I didn't even think of them until I got there) because for $180, that's the quality you get here at Vagabond. We were desperate for a place near Pismo and since those we all $$$$, we tried to take the lesser of the evils, but Vagabond's got little […] over any other motel. For ~$200, you'd expect at least a full bath set (shampoo, conditioner, soap, lotion, heck, toothbrush and toothpaste!), but no, you get your basic motel-dried-up-half-browned-old-soap and not much else to top it off. At least the weather at the beaches were good.... Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Just one night"
Little things wrong like the ironing board could not be used screws missing. Children running making noise.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Charge to Check-In 30 mins early"
They tried to charge me extra to check in 30 mins early. I said I wasn't okay with it, and they waived the charge. I would rather go do something else and come back than pay extra. The room was moldy. The queen sized bed seemed too small for a queen. i realize that this is not a 5 star hotel, but I have been to better Motel 6's than this place. I just […] wasn't very impressed with this place, and I won't be staying here again. Guaranteed. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The queen size beds were comfortable but our roll-away bed you could feel the springs. Needed a thicker mattress. Did not use the continental breakfast, but we got a hotel discount at Dennys, next door.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"I like the easy access to everything; beach, hwy."
I liked the hotel because is close to everything from restaurants to freeway to beach.the office staff was nice and helpful, but the cleaning staff were annoying(keep knocking on door even though i requested extra time and had the don't disturb sign. also sheets were dirty i had to ask for clean ones and changed them my self and they had ants in the […] vanity. hotel overall was alright and i felt safe.

"college tour weekend"
Very convenient, clean, comfortable, next to Madonna Inn for dinner and other stores for shopping.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good value motel close to downtown SLO"
This is a decent, basic motel a couple of minutes' drive from downtown San Luis Obispo. It was the cheapest option we could find on relatively short notice. I gave this motel four stars because I felt like it was a good value and was clean. The motel offers a free continental breakfast (which I did not partake in, so I can't comment on its quality), […] and has a pool and hot tub. It is on the same property as a Denny's, and we were given a 20% coupon to Denny's when we checked in. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
It is good. Very nice location!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The sink was clogged, the room smelled horrible and the shower was dirty the towels smelled bad toGenuine Expedia guest review
There was minimal road noise. The towels and sheets were of the lowest grade. The bed was better than average. The room was small but ok. The place was a little rundown and could use some updating. The electrical out lets were not adequate for today's travel needs, no place to plug in cell phones and computers,Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Won't stay here again."
For the cost of the room, the hotel is old, bed was hard and uncomfortable. will not stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to Everything!!!"
Close to everything you may need and some you may have forgotten to bring when traveling. Close to an emergency clinic if needed or hospital. Very nice people working there.Those giving low rating are not being fair. I have stayed here many times, always great place, convenient. Right off freeway if driving or on bus line if using mass transit.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good location just a place to sleep. Dog friendly"
Traveling with dogs so needed pet friendly cheap. One might. Clean. Not fancy.Genuine Expedia guest review
"place to stop"
Good overnight stop. Close to market, downtown and all important coffee houses.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"short stay great location"
I found it close to all the major parts of the city to see. The mission and downtown area 3-4 minutes away. Great place for a short stay and not hang around the round which was generic. will stay again if needed.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Basic, clean accommodations"
As other reviewers state, the furniture in this hotel is on the old side. However, in my room everything was very clean, especially the bathroom, which looked as though it had recently been redone. The wireless was fast, the bed comfortable, and there was plenty of hot water--something I cannot say about every place I've stayed, including some expensive […] hotels. If you're looking for a deluxe place, this isn't for you. On the other hand, if you want a reasonably priced, clean place to spend the night in San Luis Obispo, it should be what you need. My only minor quibbles are 1) the room needed more electrical outlets for phone, computer, etc. 2) if you miss the entrance, which is kind of concealed right past the Denny's restaurant, you have to go down the street, make a U-turn, then go back past the hotel and make a second U-turn just to get back to the hotel driveway. This is easy to do at night. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Smelly and stale....Paint chipping, bedspread stains... Flat polyester pillows. Very bland. I expected more for the moneyGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Worth it For the low price/ Great Customer Service"
The Customer Service was great, which is hard to come by that made the small things that were wrong well worth it. Honestly the rooms are a lil outdated but I understand working on it. Great location to everything,very convenient. The room could have been a bit more clean but We had Lysol wipes which took care of issue honestly for what I paid it was […] just fine and you get a great discount at Denny's so really I shouldn't complain it served it's purpose sleep and leave Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Okay place to stay near in San Luis Obispo"
There are many options in the area and this is one of them. It has a nice pool and the facilities are pretty standard. Nothing special. Rooms could use an updating.Genuine Expedia guest review
"close to freeway but hotel needs major updates"
The location was great but everything inside needed a major renovation. The carpet was dirty and old, the room was very small and cramped. The tv was positioned on the side so it was hard to watch while laying down. We only stayed the night as we were passing by... would not stay there more than that. The continental breakfast consisted of apples and […] tiny muffins... we skipped this breakfast. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Needs some work"
It could've been much better. I had to call and get bar soap and shampoo because there wasn't any in the room. The lady at the desk said "you have to come and get it because I cannot leave the desk..." and so that was very inconvenient. When I got into the room and looked around, I noticed that the clock was unplugged. The towels were WAY too small […] for adults. I don't care that the tv was about 20 years old, but the basics should be available. The toilet in room 223 kept running all night. The bed was a bit lumpy and i didn't know there was an extra pillow until the next morning when I found it in a drawer. I also don't care that you will not post this...my point was ONLY to bring to your attention that needs are not being met. The next morning, we called and asked for assistance and the guy said he was unable to leave because he was the only one there (at the desk). Then, I went to drop off my keys at the desk and to get receipts but the guy at the desk had his back turned to me and failed to even acknowledge I was standing there. I have never experienced such unprofessionalism in a hotel such as vagabond inn. It is highly unlikely I will ever stay there or at any Vagabond Inn anytime in the near future. Good luck.

very dated. 1960. only update is a/c and shower head.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Needs a lot of updating."
Staff were pleasant but the two star rating is accurate. Rooms need a lot of work and furnishings need drastic updating.Genuine Expedia guest review
It was ok for a last minute. The room was decent but it needs remodeling. Lamp shades were old and dirty with cigarette burns.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great for the price!"
For a great price, this is a great place to stay. If we were staying more than one night passing through, I may have set up something else, but this served it's purpose wellGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Noisy and below my quality standards"
Room was about the equivalent of a Motel 6. It was very noisy...people next door were up until 1:30 am, and sleeping was difficult. The price was good, but the quality of the motel was not.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice quiet place to stay"
we were just stopping by after a day in San Simeon, and we were happy to have a nice quiet spot to sleep before heading off down the coast - and twenty percent off our meal at the Denny's next door was a pleasant bonusGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great Budget hotel"
The room was decent, however it lacked power outlets by the bedside table. Beds were a bit old and you can feel the springs when you sleep. That aside, I liked this hotel for it's location. Hotel receptionist was friendly and helpful. Recommend it if your looking for a quick night stop to sleep over.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
