Great place to lay your head

Having spent several nights at other hotels in the area, I was more than pleasantly surprised by the accommodation at the Vagabond Inn. The rooms were very clean and the furniture, while worn, was perfectly serviceable. In addition it was full of those small extra amenities that make a hotel just a little bit better at the end of the day. The staff I spoke too was pleasant and helpful and made an effort to go the extra mile me. The location, while close to the airport, is right on a busy junction of streets making travel from the hotel to other parts of San Jose slower than I would have liked. In addition the wifi internet signal was spotty though I was given a room at the farthest end of the hotel. In summary, the Inn is best suited to a traveler or business person. It provided me a clean, quiet, and moderately priced room for me to sleep in at a better price than I expected.

at least i didnt have to sleep in my car

Must have been a busy week because this was one of the few places with availability left on short notice for under $100. Actually paid less for a much nicer hotel one week earlier. Had to pay an additional $10 to change my room to non-smoking, despite originally requesting that upon purchase. Come to find out it would have cost me almost $30 less to walk up and book it! Glass half full- got some sleep and was able to take a hot shower.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

The Doghouse Bar was just down the street and was a fun little hole in the wall bar. Good staff, cold drink and free popcorn.
