Perfect for us

This was the best hotel of this type (typical motel) we've stayed in. The free hot breakfast was plentiful & delicious, with a very energetic staff member serving. The free shuttle came in handy, and we used it several times, with a very helpful driver. We swam in the pool every day, and it was very clean. The room had a 50" flat screen TV, the biggest we've seen in a hotel. The location was perfect for us. We took the train up, and the hotel is across the street. It is also within walking distance to Old Sacramento (you can see the Railroad Museum from the hotel), and only 15 minute walk from the Capitol and Stanford's Mansion. I would definitely stay here again.

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

The Downtown Mall across the street from the hotel is actually mostly out of service. We thought it would give us something to do, but only Macy's, Century Theatre, 24 Hour Fitness, Starbucks, and a food court are open.

Great Hotel Close to Old Town

Great Hotel. We chose to stay here due to its close proximity to Old Town (very short walking distance). The room was very clean and comfortable. I read some reviews that said the rooms were outdated, but I didn't find that to be true. Quite the breakfast spread and a short drive from the airport. Very happy with our choice!

great stay

This is a well managed hotel. Clean and well run. The employees all seemed like they took pride in their jobs. Its an older building, but well maintained. It is alongside the Interstate and the vehicle noise is constant, but in the room with the a/c running drowned it out at night. I will stay here again.

Comfortable and Convenient

This hotel has a lot going for it. A pleasant and attentive staff, free Wi-Fi, DirecTV, a convenient downtown location good for business travelers as well as vacationers, plenty of free parking, and a better-than-usual complimentary breakfast buffet that includes hot selections. The only drawback is the freeway-adjacent location that can be a problem for light sleepers.

Good Price, Good Accommodations, Good Location

The Vagabond Inn is a regular place for me to stay when I need to go to Sacramento. It is located within walking distance of downtown, Old Sacramento, and great for morning walks along the river. Once I am parked I can get around from there without any trouble. The rooms are comfortable and consistently clean. The breakfast is tasty, and more than enough to get the day rolling. I will be back.

Why only two stars?

I nearly didn't stay here because of the low two star rating. This hotel deserves at least a 4 star. They offer everything I could have wanted. The room was outstanding. The bed was a dream. Whatever service I wanted was provided. I enjoy train travel and it was located right across the street! Plus, they offer free pickup service from the airport, and a stay/park option where if you want to leave your car at the hotel for seven days during your trip you can - if you stay in the hotel at least one night. Excellent!

Good short stay

After getting off the train we needed a one night place close to restaurants and shopping. The Vagabond fit the bill. Rooms are a little dated, too much Pine Sol smell, but clean and the staff was nice. Breakfast room kept a good variety on hand and was good.
