A nice place

Have nothing but good to say about this place for the most part and don't see how it is only a 2 star rated Hotel. Location is great, very clean all around and very nice pool. About the only thing I think they really have to upgrade are the TV's and the cable service.

Disappointed

The internet access is intermittent and extremely slow when it works. I told the desk staff the next morning that the hair dryer did not work properly - needed a hand to keep the on button on which left no hand to use a brush. He nodded that he understood the problem and I mistakenly assumed he would get it fixed or replace it. Did not happen the entire 4 day stay. When I asked him (same guy) why he had not fixed it during my stay, he never gave a reason just nodded. There was black mold on the shower curtain at eye level. The bathroom was a patched multicolored (not in a good way) disaster to look at. On the good side, the fridge worked and the bed was okay as was the TV.

Vagabond Inn

First, I do not want someone lurking in the shadows trying to sell my daughter crack. The TV would lose sound. Shower didn't look clean. internet was really slow. Overall I would not go back again.

"Very Pleasant Stay"

Was a very pleasant and comforting stay here. Had everything in the room that you need, plus internet free, so this hotel is worth the stay.

Vagabond inn Santa Clara

Check-in was a breeze. The room needs a bit of repair in the bathroom, but had been upgraded with granite table tops and counter tops. The toilet was new and water saving. The bed was extremely comfortable, but the covers weren't enough to keep me warm. Breakfast was buffet of hard boiled egg, bagels/toast, juice, coffee, cereal. Okay, but nothing to write home about. I was surprised at how quiet it was, but figured out that the townhouses behind it block the noise. Overall, livable!

Surprisingly Good

I made the reservation with some uncertainty due to a few "not-the-best" reviews. When we got there, we were totally surprised. The staff was professional. The room was clean, quiet and relatively new. The breakfast was acceptable. The cleaning was done very well. This hotel/motel enhanced the quality of our visit to the area. We decided to leave a good tip when we left.
