Old hotel

A bit run down but adequate. Convenient to required location of conference at Peppermill. No fridge no coffee maker, only one distant ice machine. Homeless hanging out in unrented commercial space adjacent to hotel. No real complaints.

Refused to honor my reservation

Claimed I did not have a reservation upon arriving, charged my credit card as I still badly needed a place to stay that night. The website was able to get it resolved but I am still waiting for the money to actually be credited back on my card. Do not stay here.

rib cook off week

It was comfortable but not really a hotel I would regular stay in. It's clean and very basic. The location was pretty far away from events. Was the only hotel with a vacancy.

Beds are horrible!

The beds were like sleeping on the floor. Very hard and uncomfortable. Since I just needed a room to sleep for a few hours I was not very happy!

Great value and friendly people

I just recently stayed at the Vagabond Inn Reno Nevada and it was one of the most pleasant experiences I’ve had in years. I normally stay in big hotel casinos and this by far is the more “home like experience”. The staff is very customer service oriented and the place itself makes you feel right at home. One of the best parts of the vagabond is the location. It’s about 1 mile away from the main casinos down town but it’s conveniently close to the peppermill and Atlantis, which I recommend for fine dining and entertaining. The vagabond inn is simply a great place to stay for the convenience the hospitality and most of all our little friends” pets” are always welcome. I highly recommend this place!

Out of the way place on The Strip

Really enjoyed staying here. Most restaurants within walking distance. We found a beautiful lake a couple of blocks away, with different kinds of ducks, geese, and even a swan!

NOT the place to stay

This seemed like an unsafe place to stay. Cops kept riding through like they were looking for illegal activity. There were people there that looked rather unsavory. Was later told by friends to not stay there again.

A little disappointing...

If the maid service hadn't ignored my room (no towels or coffee restock), if the business center printer had been working (couldn't print boarding pass for flight home), if the A/C hadn't kept freezing up (woke up sweating in the middle of the night), if there had been ice on my level (had to use stairs since no elevator for the two levels), and if the TV remote would have worked, then this would have been a great place. Good location: places to eat, two casinos, and convention center w/i walking distance. Room was clean when I got there. Staff friendly (they smiled and apologized very nicely when telling me the printer did not work - lol). Felt safe. Too bad they could just take care of some of the basics during my stay. No excuse for the problems I incurred. Five days and four nights...maid service only two of those days.
