Response by Vagabond Inn Monterey Thank you for taking the time to write this review. I would like to personally apologize for the experience you had our hotel. My name is Sindy Buentello, the new General Manager at Vagabond Inn Monterey. Since I have taken over this property, I am personally taking extreme measure to ensure our property remains is secure. Again, I personally want to apologize for your experience.
For the price it was a good hotel. My daughter and I wanted to get away for a night. Our room had a fireplace which was a added plus. Room was nice and clean. It's close to the Monterey shopping mall and other places, not far to drive.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The staff at the vagabond was amazing they where helpful and friendly i loved it.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel - needs a bit of updating"
We had a hard time finding a place for our last minute stay, so this hotel had room and was recommended by Hotels.com . Like many older hotels, it had a musty smell, but was generally clean. The carpet was dark green and worn, so probably in need of replacement. It should be a law that carpets get changed every two years or less and that they cannot […] be dark. Some fixtures were in need of replacing, but paint was nice and the shower was newer, clean and did not have any apparent mold. Phone hanging over TP roll was not a nice touch and some towel holders were broken and left hanging on wall giving a bad impression. Not bad for the price, but since there were really no other amenities, cleanliness and updated fixtures should have been their best (and only) selling point. With a little work could be almost all 5's on our rating. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The sites list the beds as Queens and they were doubles. TOO SMALL FOR ME AND 1 KID.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good hotel for families"
The staff person at desk was knowledgable and extremely helpful. I enjoyed having a fireplace in the room. It was close to restaurant and attractions.Genuine Expedia guest review
We would stay again but not during the winter,to much of a gap on the door cold air would come in. We did love the fireplace. Internet was bad.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Last minute option on Saturday night"
Staff was kind. Accommodations not horrific. Neighborhood.. Sketchy. No soda machine. Two words for travelers visiting Monterey.. Book Ahead.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nobody was there to check us in, in the AM"
I made reservations through Hotel.com and indicated I would arrive in the AM. Nobody was there not they answered the phone when we arrived. We had to go and look for an other hotel nearby. Hotel.com took up the claim, confirmed the information and initiated the refunding proces writhing 5 minutes though.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"good cheap hotel"
good cheap hotel; family run thus better than other vagabonds i've been toGenuine Expedia guest review
"great spot to spend the night"
Right place, right price, clean, simple - really loved the fireplaces.Genuine Expedia guest review
"included breakfast with not much of breakfast"
One thing... Breakfast was included... Tang like OJ and some no name brand plastic wrapped sugar coated bread was not what I imaged breakfast....Genuine Expedia guest review
"Way better than I expected!"
At the time, I was just passing through town and it was late and I needed an inexpensive place to sleep for the night. If I were to visit Monterey again even for more than just one night, I would stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The room needed some repair. The repairs that were done were without any thought. For instance a shower curtain ring needed replacing and one was put in that did not match the other rings.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great location and helpful staff."
The front desk personnel was extremely helpful and insightful when it came to directing us around the area. He was well spoken and very helpful. I would stay there again and recommend this location to my family and friends.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Not at all as expected!"
Pictures made me believe this was the cleanest and most accommodating hotel for its price. I never felt safe, I carried all my belongings with me whenever I would come and go. It is old, dark and stinky! The AC did not work. One window did open but it was facing the street so I could hear the cars. Someone was staying here with dogs and a parrot, it […] was loud and annoying. When doors were closed they slammed and the whole building would shake! Inside, everything is stained, even the walls. I flipped the sheets on the bed just to make sure they were clean and they were but the back of the comforter had cigarette burn marks all over it. The comforter had dark stains, I dont even want to know what they were I just threw it off. The bed has a thin sheet over the mattress which is really gross, no fitted sheet or bed skirts. The bathroom was disgusting, it smelled and the toilet rocked when I sat on it. Oh and the carpet was gross with stains and also was sticky so I refused to walk around barefoot! I know hotels are not the cleanest places but when you feel so grossed out that you dont even want to get out of your clothes and shoes or use the sheets to sleep, no fireplace, HBO or free breakfast is worth it!

"Older but updated and worth the money"
We booked a room here for three nights, after arriving in Monterey with no reservations anywhere and staying 2 nights elsewhere, not realizing that hotels would be booking early for the Jazz Festival the following weekend. While this place was older, our room (#24) had been renovated with beautiful tile work in the bathroom & sink areas, fresh paint […] and newer carpeting. The fridge had a REAL freezer which made it nicer than just a flap inside the fridge to keep frozen/cold separated. I was a bit surprised at the lack of air conditioning (coming from Phoenix) but we were able to open the windows to let some air pass through and it was adequate. The microwave worked fine and allowed us to make some yummy snacks in the room. The other surprise was the only source of heat in the room. Advertised as having a "fireplace" the unit was equipped with an portable electric fireplace. Not quite what I expected, but then again we didn't need to use it during our stay since we enjoyed the mid-60-70s temps, compared to the 100+ temps we'd left in Phoenix. Overall, this room was sufficient to our needs which was a base to enjoy day trips throughout the Monterey Bay area. Didn't need a pool or daily breakfast, since we generally left early and returned late. The parking area was REALLY tight and insufficient signage caused many guests to go the wrong way in the tight, one-way traffic flow. Would we stay here again? Most definitely!!

"Great room and friendly staff"
The room was great. We had a fireplace and it was perfect! The outside appearance is deceptive.Genuine Expedia guest review
The continental breakfast was a joke, the room was clean and adequate. The service was not accommodating.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent place for a good night's sleep."
We stayed here 2 separate nights. The first night we had a room with a very comfortable bed. The 2nd night we were in a room 3 doors down, and the bed was very hard. Overall, we really liked the place, and the price was very reasonable. The fireplace in the room was a nice touch.Genuine Expedia guest review
very bad dirtyGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Vagabond Lack of Quality"
Do NOT go there. Place was a disaster. The only thing good about the place was the girl at the front desk. Nothing worked in the room and the room itself smelt.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It was an OK stay. the room was spacious enough and we liked the high loft-like ceilings, but it came at the price of needing to carry your luggage to the second floor without elevator. The continental breakfast was a joke, but we knew about this from earlier comments, so no surprise there. Our room did not have a hairdryer and the front desk just informed […] us that "hairdryers and clocks are being lost at the epic rate" The replacement could not be found Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
my wife liked it more than I. In general it was OK. I might go back.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This hotel is in a great location- walking distance to downtown Monterey & a quick drive to Cannery Row. The rooms are spacious, with newly-remodeled bathrooms! The staff at the Vagabond Inn were very helpful and made the experience memorable, thanks for all your help!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good for the money"
The fireplace added the perfect touch, and I felt I was kind of in a cabin which was a nice touch. I got what I paid for basicallyGenuine Expedia guest review
The room was good BUT for both my wife and I the bed was very uncomfortable. We did not sleep well.Genuine Expedia guest review
Horrible for the amount of money we paid. The guys at check in were very nice....but the room and the gounds were horrible. Old smelly carpets, stains in toliet, closets dirty,landscaping LACKING!!...Old smelly drapes amd bedspreads too!!no pool or hot tub...did not know that when we booked it.Genuine Expedia guest review
"No thrills get-er-done"
Nice older hotel. Its very open with all corridors open air. Parking was tight and breakfast limited, if you want a good breakfast go to Rosine's Restaurant. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. The location is easy to get to and driving to the many Monterey attractions is easy. I do recommend it.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
i never will stay there again and never recommend to othersGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good value for the price"

"A Bit Dissapointed"
The room was near a street that I thought was going to be quite but it was rather noisy. It seems I could hear conversations from the curbside street. Also the booking mentioned that a crib was part of the booking but It seems this hotel does not hold any cribs. No AC, but there was a fan, lucky for us it was a bit cold for us and we didn't need an […] AC. Breakfast was a packaged bread and coffee. Location was ok, 5-10 minutes away from the cities best area. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great for everyone."
I love the Vagabond Inn but I am not thrilled that they removed some of their hot tub rooms.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Breakfast was advertise, but there was none"
the office was closed until 9:00 AM although it was advertise breakfast will be served at 8.00 AM .Finally they served Coffee and donuts. the manager respond to complain was : it is waste of the money to have continantal break fast .Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We book this room because it was only 55 a night we were really not expecting much. I must say for that rate it was a very nice room that even had a fireplace, it was clean and comfortable. The only issue we had was there was only one towel in the room. The staff at the front desk were helpful and pointed us in the right direction for food. All and […] all it was a good experience and my husband and I left very satisfied. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Clean and in expensive in monterey"
What do you expect for this price. A very clean room in what 35 years ago was a gorgous room. Hasn't been updated in 35 years but again I was only hoping for clean at this price and vagabond delivered.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The location was great...we will use this hotel again. The bed was fabulous...best 3 nights of sleep I have had for a long, long time.The fireplace was delightful. The room was clean but the table was too small for us with our hobbies and the chairs were not very comfortable for watching TV. The only problem with the room was that the locks were broken […] on the door. you could not open it from the outside without a key, but the deadbolt did not work and the door catched was broken.

"I'll probably stay here again"
Ok, so the continental breakfast is weak but they informed me of that when I checked in.. The rooms are dated but very clean, I actually felt comfortable letting my toddler play on the floor. The high ceilings and convenient location made for a great home base for a weekend visit. Don't plan on the free breakfast though as the coffee is horrible, and […] the danish looks like its from costco.. Overall I would stay here again, very happy.

"Great affordable room with a fireplace!"
Management was very pleasent and accomadating. Continential breakfast was at 8 and we left at 7. The day we left it was 8:30 and not open yet. Dont have breakfast if you don't open it up early.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Location was pretty good. The parking lot was very small and not much room for vehicles to get through. I was a little surprised that after they cleaned my room, there were fewer towels then when I first checked in.Genuine Expedia guest review
Hotel staff was fine Continental breakfast was coffee and some danish in packages Bed was too hard and I didn't sleep well because of it Walls and carpet were a bit dirty. I'll try somewhere else next timeGenuine Expedia guest review

"Munras in Monterey"
If you are looking for friendly, safe, and inexpensive it's a great place. The staff was wonderfu,l or this would be a somewhat negative review. I live in the area, and was out of my home for three days during minor remodel. The hotel is under a minor remodel as well, looking forward to the upgrades making future travelers more comfortable...Genuine Expedia guest review
"Other better competing places to stay for the same price."
No isues with parking, although it is a bit tight. Check-in was perfunctionary; no real affableness at the front desk. The room itself was spacious but devoid of any character; blank walls, TV remote didn't work properly, burn-out light bulb (sorry but CFL bulbs on dimmer lamps is a no-no); furniture, beadspread needs updating. The room was clean and […] recently renovated;clean and spacious bathroom. Fireplace claim is a joke; its an electric insert for heating the room. Good to have a fridge & mircrowave. Otherwise, OK value for a night but not for an extended stay of 2+ nights. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
really nice customer service, convenient location and room size was bigger than I expected. I was really disappointed with the continental breakfast...it was only 1 kind of pastry & coffee. I was expecting more. but overall stay was good.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Vagabond Hotel in Monterey, Ca"
Hotel was reasonably close, about 20 minute walk, to the Monterey wharf and the down town shopping district. The parking garage for the aquarium and Cannery Row was an easy 15 minute drive. Was very pleased with the location and accomodations, which are plain and simple. The desk attendant was extremely helpful in providing dining recommendations; this […] was especially helpful as we were unfamiliar with the area. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This hotel looks great on the website but not as great when you get there. No fitted sheets on the beds and our queen beds seemed to have full sheets on them. Not comfortable to sleep on bunched up sheets. Floor was a bit on the dirty side. Smoking in the corridor was not well controlled as our room smelled of foul cugarette smoke at about 10pm at night. […] Talked to the night manager and got no help on this matter. Coffee pot was broken when we got there and no replacement was given when I told them about it. Terrible coffee at the continental breakfast. Had to go to a gas station to get some coffee. Would not stay here again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Quiet and Charming..."
This was by far the best hotel we stayed at in our journey down the CA coast. It was clean, quaint, quiet and all around lovely. The fireplace in the room made a fantastic addition, especially after a day hanging out on the chilly beach, the staff was incredibly friendly and very accommodating, the beds were comfortable, the setting was great with seals […] barking quietly in the background... They even directed us to a little diner a block or so away with some of the best breakfast food I have ever had. You can also tell the owners really care about the guests and the property, which they are slowly renovating so as not to disturb their guests. If you are staying in Monterey you should definitely stay at the Vagabond in. It is an incredible bang for your buck! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
