"Nice hotel very clean"
We were just passing through and it was a nice choice for the quick overniter.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good value and a clean room"
Pleasantly greeted, the room was ready and plain but clean. We were right next to the road but were not bothered by road noise during the night. The room was clean but there were no pictures on the walls, kind of strange. The carpet was older - probably from the late 80's and the mattress was nothing special. The fireplace was nice - on a ticking timer […] though. We were able to get a parking spot and were happy that the car we were driving was small as the parking lot had no driving room to spare. I would return but not if I was looking for a romantic spot. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Don't stay here dirty. The workers are rude it was horrible only stayed here one day out my 3 day's in town checked out early. Don't do it peopleGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We had rm 33# (top room) As soon as we walked in, we noticed the high ceilings. There was also a mini fridge and a microwave. the closets were mirrored which a was really nice for the Mrs. It also came with an iron and iron board. We always bring our own shampoo but forgot it this time. Luckily, our room included some green tea shampoo that had a very […] nice scent. The room was very nice and it included a balcony! The only thing that we did not care for was a very high window that did not come with a curtain. By 7:30 the sun was beaming through that window and we couldn't go back to sleep. Other than that, the room was very nice and we would stay there again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Decent for the price"
We stayed here because the price was worth it. The can drive was fairly decent.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Could have been great but was only OK."
We booked the Vagabond Inn based on its website which promised such things as in-room jacuzzi tubs and fireplaces.. The location is excellent,nice neighborhood near downtown without being IN downtown. The staff and the hotel service were excellent. The parking was a bit awkward with an oddly shaped lot. The bed was very comfortable.The room was clean […] and tidy. On the other hand, the heating system is antiquated and does not function well.The room was chilly.The weatherstripping was missing on the bottom of our door, allowing in a draft. Our fireplace was non-functional. The flu was stuck on open and the wind whined down the chimney. The hotel USED to have jacuzzi tubs but has removed them. There were plaster repairs on the walls that had not been painted over. The TV remote did not have batteries in it. This hotel would have been a bit more acceptable if it had been July instead of February. OK value for the money. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Very convenient location for activities on Cannery Row and wharf area. Also very close to CarmelGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"good size room for the price"
we went for an overnite stay to visit family. Now having been a reisdent of there in Monterey i do know weekend rates can be little high in price. But found this hotel to have a really good price in rate for a Sat. nite stay. The room was very big, bed more than comfortable, the gas fireplace was nice and cozy no need for firewood. There was also a […] sofa bed which was a nice surprise. The staff was very friendly the only minus was the continental breakfast in small lobby. Monterey has some very good bakeries near by wouldve like to see local pastries. Overall was a good stay we definately would stay again soom Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Perfect for couple night get away"
Place was surprisingly clean, no mold smell, no smoke smell like many others, right in the city, staff is friendly, I will defiantly come here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good for the price"
The room was clean and comfortable. This first room we were given was extremely nice, but had no curtains which I found odd, but we were moved to another room. It was smaller, but very comfortable. I will definitely be going back.Genuine Expedia guest review
This place is VERY old. There is no central heating system. Had to leave the fireplace on all night long to stay warm. Staff we're very friendly though.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice fireplace in the room!"
Stayed for one night during a longer journey through the states. A nice and comfortable place. Large rooms that include a fireplace (!), tv, fridge, microwave, coffee maker and free wifi, albeit with a very poor reception! Staff is friendly. Complimentary breakfast is sugar and carb loaded! All in all an ok place though!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Other than the tub in the bathroom having chipped paint, the room was Great it even had a nice fireplace!Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Perfect for a cheap getaway"
The room was very different and quite large. Pros: Huge vaulted ceiling in room and bathroom, wide large windows (with a tiny bit of Ocean view :)), 5 min to Fisherman's Warf, Easy check in and out, Double shower head, vanity outside of the bathroom as well as inside, gas fireplace with ledge to sit in front of it. Cons: Freezing in room, there was […] a small floor heater in bathroom (which did an ok job for bathroom), small floor heater in room (which you could not tell was on unless you walked right next to it) and a fireplace that shuts off in an hour if knob not spun. Thank God I am usually over prepared so I had brought 2 extra blankets, that with out we would have froze for sure. There were a couple areas that you could tell had the "cheap fix" instead of really being fixed. All in all I liked the character of the room and we really enjoyed our short stay. The room although older and out of date did not feel dirty or unkempt. I would go back to this hotel again for the price it was really just right. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Roomy accommodations for cheap"
Big room with a comfy bed for a good price. All we needed was a place to stay over night and this fit the bill. I would stay here again.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Nice, clean, comfortable and close. Great Staff."
When I arrived, the outside looked very well kept. I then also realized how close we were to Cannery Row, Fisherman's Wharf and the Aquarium. There were cars in the lot, but plenty of parking for the few unfilled rooms. It was well lit, quiet, clean and peaceful. There were no beach bums anywhere to be seen. I walked in to the Office and was greeted […] very cheerfully (which I am not used to seeing at local seaside hotels/motels) by the woman and man behind the desk. Check in was a breeze, and the reservations were perfect and correct. The staff was so pleasant (including the Housekeeper in the mornings). We were checked in in minutes and off to our room with directions and brochures. The room was very clean and fresh smelling, but without that overpowering smell of bleach & cleaners that usually go along with it. It was a spacious room with a few windows and a cozy fireplace for warmth and ambiance. The linens and bedding were neat and clean. If you are the type who is usually cold when sleeping or just likes extra warmth in bed (as my wife is), be sure to ask for an extra blanket as there are no comforters on the beds (I did not miss a comforter nor need a blanket). The bed was comfy and the furniture, carpets, floors, tub, toilet, and sink were all free of even a spec of dust. There was a heater in the room but we didn't need it. The fridge held plenty and had a small freezer and the microwave worked well. We loved this place, and will be returning 2 more times this year. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Spacious and cozy"
We were impressed by the size of the room. It was clean and the gas fireplace was a very nice touch. Could use updating but the room was clean. One thing that was beyond the control of the hotel was a man yelling for over an hour outside of one of the rooms.Genuine Expedia guest review
"good for the price"
modest, clean, and safe. well located and well priced.Genuine Expedia guest review
nice Fireplace in the room. Large room. Too soft matress. BAD breakfastGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"5 min from downtown Monterey & Waterfront"
Nice large room, fireplace with a timer. High ceiling. Clean & smelled fresh. Shower & floor seemed new. Beds had 3 pillows each. Windows could be opened for a cool breeze.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Clean and simple"
My wife and I spent one night here on our way down highway 1. The room was very clean and the king-size bed was very comfortable. Also, it had a working fireplace which we used since it gets pretty chilly at night. Keep in mind that breakfast is just fruit, granola bars, and instant tea/coffee.Genuine Expedia guest review
We stayed in two rooms; one room the heater did not work properly. But the main complaint we had was the limited parking. Although we only had one car, there was not enough parking spaces when we returned one evening at 9pm. We ended up parking in a walkway and were called at 10pm and told to move our car (even though there was access via other walkways.) […] Really? We paid for two rooms and this was the level of service we received. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Over all very pleased. Parking spaces very narrow.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very nice and low cost"
Fire place, king size bed, clean, nice breakfast, thick toils.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Can't beat the quality"
We were pleasantly surprised. This was a last minute booking for a funeral, and when we arrived early, with just a half hour to change, they graciously accommodated us, getting us into a room WAY ahead of schedule. The room was much larger than we expected and ours had a fireplace! In this price range that's unheard of. If you book far enough ahead, […] don't forget to ask for a room with a vaulted ceiling. Hey, its' not the Ritz, but all things considered, it's a quality bargain buy. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"A "B" for Effort"
I have to be honest; I read others reviews and I was prepared to be dissapointed but I will admit that the level of condition, cleanliness, and service was better than I had expected. I wasn't sure how things were going to go because when I arrived, the staff almost checked me in under someone else's name...that could have gone many ways south but the […] confusion was resolved with the help of my printed confirmation page, ID and a credit card. The staff made accomodations of my request for a downstairs room since my g.f. was on crutches but I had to reconfirm my request (made during booking online) in person because we were originally booked for an upstairs room. By now, some people would have bursted their bubble but I have more patience than most and the staff was being quite curteous. The room was clean, contained no funny odor and the bathroom had been rennovated. New flooring and sink added a classier touch to most of the basic decor you normally see. The bed was comfy and it was relatively quite during our stay. I think it's time to update their televisions to flatscreens and consider a/c in the room, but I've noticed many Monterey hotel rooms don't have a/c. I was slightly dissapointed with the "fireplace" because it was really just an electric heater with a light but we made due. I would stay here again because the service was above average and the location is convenient. But it won't be because of the "fireplace" selling point. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Nice large room. Unusual wash basin. Stairs were a bit difficult for bringing suitcases into the room. Overall a good experience.Genuine Expedia guest review
"clean hotel great location"
The hotel was very nice. The hotel manager was very accommodating. It's a mile or a little more down to the ocean & Fisherman's Wharf. Would definitely stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Cute and Cozy on a Budget"
We enjoyed our stay at the Vagabond Inn. The service was efficient and friendly. The room was big and had high, beamed ceilings. We especially loved the gas fireplace! It's clearly an older facility--dated linoleum, a bit of peeling paint--but a good value while we were in town for the Monterey Jazz Festival. Easy access to fairgrounds, downtown, and […] Highway 1 (plus breakfast/coffee places within walking distance). We only wished it had a pool! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Lovely people, massive clean room!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Room OK for a night where we needed it for sleep and location. Rooms big. Breakfast skimpy but ok: banana, granola bars, coffee, packaged pastries. Bed fine. No ac but had fan (was placed above small corner table) on and window open. Safe neighborhood. We could walk to Denny's and the wharf. Paid 150 for night, most everything else was more.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Near beach- not worth the horrible condition"
I have never penned a hotel review but I feel compelled to spare other travelers of our horrible experience here. I booked this room several weeks in advance for a girlfriend's wedding in Monterey CA. and still had to ask for a down stairs room-manager seem put out by this. When we entered, we noticed the room did not look nice or updated. It had an […] "old" smell to it. Several things were a problem: SAFTEY- the main window did not have an adequate secondary lock-the front door's privacy lock was broken (the metal lever lock on the top part of the door)-the toilet rocked on it's mount-unnerving. CONVENIENCE- no working air conditioner-it made noise but did not blow air-the ceiling fan did not work and the pull chain was extremely short-(we did get a standing fan when we said something)-the t.v was old-the phones did not work-we had to ask for a 'clean up/do not disturb' sign one was not provided- DECOR-the walls had unpainted spackle patches-the carpets smelled stale and were not clean in the corners of the room-only one small cabinet for clothing storage for two people-microwave was just stacked on the refrigerator and looked unstable-only one window had a sheer drapery and the other one did not! (we could not open the window curtains without people looking directly at us! When I mentioned some of these things to the manager he seemed less than interested in making it right. When I asked about the continental breakfast, the manager said, 'It was nothing special' He was RIGHT! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice basic stay"
We liked the room the fireplace was a nice touch. The front desk was nice and helpful. It is a very limited breakfast, was the only thing that was under par.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Monterrey semi bargain"
The room came equipped with a gas fireplace and the pilot light was a distraction. The motel was well located to Highway 1 and as I was visiting friends in Carmel, Carmel was only 5 minutes away. Some of the staff were knowledgeable about the area, others were not. Provided breakfast was adequate.Genuine Expedia guest review
The room was nicer than I had anticipated! My guy and I were in Monterrey for a concert and beach time, it was minutes away from Cannery Row and Monterey Fairgrounds. I will definitely recommend to stay here; cheap and convenient. The room we stayed in looked like it just got some new upgradesand a fireplace! Loved it. The only bummer was breakfast, […] just Coffee and prepackaged pastries... There is a Denny's and a cute little cafe down the street. Overall was very pleased with my stay!

"Value for money"
Hotel was excellent for a average hotel the room was clean and comfortable, pillows a little hard but we just came from San Fran 2 star and paid a fortune for a dirty dog box. Great location 10 min walk to the wharf.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I needed a room last minute and this was the last resort. If I knew it was going to be this bad I would've slept in my jeep. Staff was rude and the room was filthy. There were dirty cups scattered around the room from the previous occupant and hair around the toilet and shower. Never again will I stay at a vagabond. Absolutely disgusting.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Worst Customer Service"
The customer service was terrible at the front desk. The one receptionist was so rude to an older couple because the inquired on some extra hot water bec the pot was empty and he replied beakfast is over its 10am when in fact it was not they actually had 10 extra mins. He refused to provide any help and talk on the phone to a friends as customer were […] waiting in line including myself. The room was neat but had a really foul smell. I rather paid extra to be some place else, one of the wirst experuences was at this place. There are better places to stay if you can so your research. I sure wish my husband and I had.

"Affordable, Comfortable, and Clean"
We were very pleased to make a reservation here at the last minute. It is a quick trip to the movie theater, historic downtown, and Fisherman's Wharf. The room was infinitely comfortable, clean, and attractive. The staff was friendly and helpful. This will be our new place to stop over in beautiful Monterey!Genuine Expedia guest review

"Not worth the money"
I paid $200.00 for a room. The entry light did not work, there was no art on the wall. Nothing special about he room. Nothing special about he bathroom..The continental breakfast was a joke. The people were nice and welcoming, I just don't want to spend that kind of money and get just a room!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Pretty nice place"
Architecturally not your usual motel, pretty interesting. Comfortable bed, clean room, no issues. Good location. Recommend the tapas bar at the bottom of the hill (in a hotel)Genuine Expedia guest review
"Far from Downtown"
I expected more value for the high cost of a room at this hotel. The mattresses were worn, there is no separate are to eat the continental breakfast, parking is very tight.Genuine Expedia guest review
