    Very Good 8.0
    Older but comfy
    Front desk was very friendly, it's a small operation, and a comfy, older place. We only stayed a day and spent a lot of time out in the area, and down to Pizmo 15 mins away. Lil pricey for what we got there, but the area made it well worth it.

    Needs an update but very convenient location
    This hotel is very outdated and not to clean. Everything in it seems old. Really needs to be remodeled.
    Maria, us1 night family trip
    Poor 2.0
    Horrible overpriced
    Second time staying and my last. Room was old and worn out but thats fine..... Right outside my door a large group of homeless hanging out with bikes all day and night begging for change but I will ignore that.... The room smelled musty and like smoke but I will ignore that. What I cant ignore was the people with kids in the room above us jumping off and on the bed until 2am. Front desk stated "we cannot do anything about it" Room price droped $92 and they refunded the difference to the person in the room next to me but refused to do so to me as I used Ho If you want to get no rest, be overcharged, harassed for spare change, stay in a smelly room and hate your trip this is the place for you.

    A pleasant surprise!
    We attended an event at the Madonna Inn and we stayed at the Vagabond. It was within walking distance to the Madonna and a perfect location for what we needed. Across from the Vagabond is a little shopping center, eateries and easy access to the freeway. Friendly staff and a clean, comfortable room for what we needed. Nothing over the top, but we felt safe, slept well and would stay there again for a short stay.
