"Close to Everything"
Good location. The fireplace did not work. I contacted management, and they told me that I need to get my refund from Expedia. Lots of worn paint spots through out the property, and the hall echoed with noise. Maintenance guy started working on lumber stacking and cutting at 6:45 am on sunday morning waking us up. Other than that a decent place to go. Parking is narrow.

"Not at all what I thought it would be..."
Loved the fireplace feature! But that was it. Location was a little far from the wharf and room was pretty clean... however the beds were very uncomfortable, bathroom was totally outdated and HD a leak coming from the ceiling. Ice machine did not work and free breakfast was just a basket full of granola bars, apples and coffee that you could make in the room. Not to mention a slight dizzy feeling when sitting in the bathroom, found out later our room was right next the control panel and electric housing room. Overall not worth the money spent. I would not stay here again.

We had a very large room with high vaulted ceiling. Not fancy, but clean and very accommodating with King bed, mini frig, microwave, small table and 2 chairs, love seat, decent lighting, 2 windows, and a fireplace (we didn't use). Breakfast is minimal - but there are several coffee shops within walking distance. I hear they are changing the name soon. Front desk was very friendly. I will stay there again.

"Pleasant, moderately priced motel"
Overall, I was quite pleased with the Vagabond. The room was quite large with vaulted ceiling and a gas fireplace. Its location on Munras is convenient from Highway 1 and to get to downtown/historic Monterey. It's nice that it has a complimentary breakfast, BUT it is minimalist. I wouldn't hesitate to return to this moderately priced motel.

"Last minute in Monterey"
Cost was high for the quality of the hotel. The rooms are big but the plumbing etc is old but functioned well. It certainly was well located for a visitor that wanted to see things in the Monterey and Carmel area. Very easy access from Rt. 1. We traveled back and forth between the two cities and 17 mile drive. Also, went to the aquarium on Earth Day and found it easy to find.

"excellent room for the money"
this place was dirt cheap and we expected bare bones- so we were pleasantly surprised that rooms were big and clean with high ceilings- temperature was fine, in room gas fireplace was nice- complimentary breakfast was spartan- but they had plenty of fruit and snack bars. Most impressive part was the friendliness and helpfulness of the owner- after we left we travelled on to San Fran only to realize our daughter had left her ipod in the room- the manager found it and actually met us in SF as he had some business there as well- he came close to us to meet and then refused a tip that I offered him! kudos - we would never get service like this in a chain hotel!

"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.

"Nice place!"
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.

"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.

"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

"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.

"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.
