A perfect travel Gem!

I Love staying at the Whittier Vagabond. You can not beat the quality you recieve for the reasonable price you pay. It is situated in a wonderful location close to fastfood, good restaurants and shopping. I use this location for business travel and family visits. The staff is professional and a pleasure to work with, even when you are checking in late they welcome you with a smile! The rooms are well decorated and always clean. Forgot to mention they have a perfect continental breakfast, cereal, pastries, fruit and coffee, included for the price of the room. Who needs to run to Starbucks when you can make coffee in your room which also has a fridge and microwave! If you are a frequent traveler to the area like my husband and I are, you can not beat the 10th night free program. It is amazing how quickly you can earn that 10th night and at such a reasonable cost. I hope others can find out about this gem!

If you need more than a continetal breakfast make a right on Whittier Blvd, past Painter Ave. to Jack's Whittier Restaurant, love this place or make a left on Whittier Blvd 3 city blocks to Norm's Restaurant open 24/7. For a great Italian dinner I would recommend De Luca's Ristorante Between Valley Home Ave/W Whittier Blvd and Pounds Ave, try the eggplant parmegian, just the best!

It's Comfortable Stay.

I spent 8 nights at this hotel and it was very comfotable. My "two bed room" room was clean and linen supplys were very good though bed was too soft to me. The only thing I recommend to this hotel is Improve the quality of Complimentary Breakfast. This improvement gonna this hotel more better, I think. Anyway, I would stay this hotel again.

It wa fine...

The room was fine and nicely sized. The bathroom was very bright and clean. The room itself, however was not very clean. The walls had greasy hand prints on them. There were also what looked to be blood stains on the base boards.

A So-So motel

The clerk kept us waiting while she tried to figure out what room to put us in. The motel is very obviously old and rather run down. The room was small but OK. It did have a microwave and small 'fridge. The bed was hard but comfortable.
