Weekend mini vacation

I loved the location. It's 5 minutes from downtown and the freeways, which is super important in San Diego. The room was clean, the showers were hot, and all the rest. Don't come expecting luxury, just a good value. The only thing that marred the experience was people parking in the lot without passes. We had to park on the street for one night out of three, but there was plenty of parking around.

Close to boats

Closest to the fishing boats which was a huge help when carrying heavy gear and rods. Staff were pleasantand helpful. It is a little run down but clean. Overall we were happy.

Overpriced

Upon checking in, I saw that I paid nearly $20 more per night then was on the hotel receipt.. The room itself was dark and depressing. If we had not prepaid !we would've checked out and found another hotel, rather than stay five nights.

BE AFRAID!

parking is a mess. Room reeked of tobacco and marijuana smoke. Rug and furniture had stains. TV had very poor reception and WIFI was non-existent Don't bother - other hotel/motels in area. advertised as smoke-free with free WIFI etc.

Don't stay there, not right now.

The first time I stayed in Vagabond Inn Point Loma (which is what it used to be called), it was fantastic. However, over the years, it has become less and less pleasant. This is my fourth stay here, and it will be my last. The place is under massive construction. I don't mean some renovations, I mean, 2/3 of the building is gutted, walls are missing. Large construction crew, scaffolding around the building, which means the construction workers walking in it can see inside the rooms that still have guests in them unless the blinds are drawn shot. It smells like a construction zone, too, sheetrock dust, banging, sawing, etc. Parking lot, very small to begin with, is occupied in large by the cars belonging to the construction crew, who resides in the hotel while they are working on it. I understand the need for renovation, but they should've closed the place down for however long it takes. The way they are doing it now, I don't see anybody who stayed with them during this construction period recommending them. Place has free wi-fi. Except, unless you are standing next to the office, it does not work. At all.

Basic value for the seasoned traveller

If you need a place to stay short term with the basic benefit of internet, a Tv, mini fridge and microwave then this may do. Breakfast was included: tea, coffee and a few muffins which one had to bring back to one's room as a breakfast room wasn't provided. This said, the hotel is clean (though the furniture is pretty dated) and the staff very helpful. And if you like fishing, the location is spot on. Beware though, the inn can be quite noisy and I was woken up by trucks delivering stuff every single morning of my stay between 6 and 6:30am. Not good.

not bad for the price

Yes it is a small place, small pool (heated) and small rooms. BUT, the staff is great. The rooms have been updated. 42 inch LCD TVs in the rooms. Huge beds, microwaves and Refrigerators in each room. Continental breakfast and Free parking. Centrally located so easy to get to all points..
