the people were nice but....

I am not an experienced traveler, so that should be taken into consideration. My biggest problem was the rather large string of black hair on one of the pillows on the queen size bed....Being by myself, it was only a matter of sleeping with the other pillow but....The window box heater and air, (used the heater) was rather noisy, and had a loud vibration. But, the people, or rather person that I talked to on check in was nice, and helpful....

busy on the weekend

I have stayed 3 times at the Vagabond Inn, SJ, Ca. Average room with need of update for linnen, plumbing fixtures, carpet. Needs good wall cleaning or repainting inside rooms. Located 1/2 block from the light rail system.
