Comfort and peace

Stayed for 1 night and found it perfect for the price and location. The room was comfortable and clean. Though, their continental breakfast was not as good as I expected. The location is perfect. There were no problems with the room, parking, staff and other things. So, I'd stay here again next time.

1.5 out of 5!

I stayed at this hotel because it was within the walking distance to the USC campus. When I first checked into the room, there was a huge cricket jumping around the room. I was not happy but I just didn't bother telling the staff about it. When I went inside the bathroom, there was a centipe looking bug crawling down the wall. Additionally, the window screen was broken and there was no wireless internet. If you are traveling alone and looking for a cheap place to stay at, this place should be bearable. However, if you're traveling with your family or children, go find another place.

For a one night stay - best deal around

I needed to find a cheap hotel for a USC interview. Compared the prices between the Radisson and Vagabond, and decided that it'd be only for one night. Decided to stay at the Vagabond. The room was surprisingly cleaner than I expected. The safe was pretty unfriendly. Hated the fact that there is no internet or wifi in the rooms.
