Recent guest reviews

Old. Dirty. Horrible beds. And cockroaches!!! When front desk was told of the cockroaches they apologized, mentioned some of the rooms were being remodeled and the cockroaches were probably disturbed. Seriously??? Will not use Vagabond Inn again. And won’t be using Orbitz for hotel reservations either!!’

Hotel is in a good location as it’s not in downtown but close enough. The room seems to be very low; the shower head was to my shoulders and my head almost hit the ceiling. So if you are taller than 6’1 this my not be the place for you

We enjoyed the warm weather, clean city, and scenic surroundings.

Construction throughout the entire hotel but clean rooms and nice pool area. Breakfast on weekends nice but the weekdays disappointing since it is in the office with only min. selections.

They are currently remodeling the eastern half of the motel, but it doesn't really interfere with the rooms that are available. The rooms are dated and old, but for the price, you just can't beat the low price. The pool and hot tub were good and the continental breakfast was fine.

The weekend I stayed in Palm Springs was record high temps of 122 degrees. I couldn't believe that the a.c unit in my room and other rooms were not operating properly. My room was extremely hot it felted like I was outside and not in a cool hotel room. I spoke with the front desk at check out and was told that the hotel room will be getting new a.c units so I will give this hotel another try I like the location. As of right now I will not recommend this other to anyone. Thanks

Was a little loud. I heard people outside my door a lot. Also, air conditioning couldn't keep the room cool enough. I had a difficult time sleeping in a hot room.

The desk clerk was friendly, professional, and helpful. The room was next to pool- people were loud in pool and walking by my room all night. The pillow was one of those square fluffy pillows where the stuffing slips out from under your head leaving no support. The mattress was older and sunk a bit- my back hurt the next day and I barely slept. Pool was warm. Not too close to trolley or stores. Bugs in my bathtub- incl centipede, and possible baby silverfish? Bathtub looked dirty. Refrigerator in room included a small freezer and air conditioner worked great. Desk had comfortable office chair and good lighting for studying, etc

The hotel was a good location for us, close to the Buzz free bus rides to downtown, breakfast had a good variety

We wanted and found this motel to have a good location, close to the main drag and decent restaurants in Palm Springs. The pool was very nice, with a cool temp and good hot tub. The motel has been there for some time, and has some need of primping up, but it is a clean and well run location. Easy acsess to downtown and the shops, restaurants, casino.

Glad I was drinking when I came back, so did seem as bad. Sorry to old too stinky.

Got a 1st floor room even tho it meant a free upgrade

This hotel is definitely showing its age and could do with a good "face lift." However, it has a pleasant staff, reasonable breakfast and a good price for a community that can be really expensive. The pool is heated and wonderful which means in the winter when it is a bit cool outside, you can enjoy a lovely pool outside anytime.

Great hotel with nice breakfast and central location

Continental breakfast was more than expected, hotel was quiet and room was comfortable

I don't have time to write about it...I've rated it and now I need to get to work.

The room was clean and fully stocked. Well worth the price. Secure hotel a d friendly staff. I would stay here again.

Decided to do a last minute trip to palm springs. Was able to book a last minute room and was happy with our choice.

The air conditioning level can't be controlled in the room. It was too warm to sleep at night. The pool water was so warm it was uncomfortable.

I stay at this hotel several times before the management has changed but everything is even better now.
