Vagabond Inn Reno

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We needed a room for 6, so the hotel room worked, it had 2 double beds and 2 bunk beds, which worked great. Nothing fancy, but accommodating.

If you like skid row with bugs this is your place, otherwise stay some where else please!

The front desk gave me keys to a room that was already occupied. I opened the door & there was a couple in bed! I went back to front desk, it took another 20min before they gave me keys to another room. In the refrigerator, there was left over food. This hotel is dirty. Go rent a room somewhere else.

Internet was not too fast(expected). Nice walk to Atlantis,7-11. Good for walking exercise.

Average hotel, needs fridge and the beds were slightly uncomfortable.

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.

Clean and good service would stay again and will tell friends

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.

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.

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!

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!

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!

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.

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.

Overpriced.

I was in Reno for an auto show at the Grand Sierra Resort. So im young and not picky at all but this motel was one of the worst ive stayed in. ESPECIALLY FOR THE PRICE Check in went fine, the man that greatest was perfect...We walked into our room and it looked decent(could use come brightning though). The bed and couch were kind of stiff but not too bad. I went to use the bathroom and the toilet wasnt cleaned very well and the bathtubs bottom was lightly stained. In a hotel i believe the bathroom should be spotless so right when i saw that it ruined it for me. Then while washing my hands and face the sink drained extremely slow. Pretty much the room would have been decent if they would brighten things up and clean better. But a dirty bathroom in a hotel is unexceptable. This place is not worth spending $130+ a nite. Back in San Jose we have hotels for $100 and under that are way nicer, cleaner, and of way better quality overall. This place needs help

It was a nice quiet room where I had a good nights sleep before catching the train the next morning.

The room was clean, old TV, I usually stay at this motel when visiting family in Reno.

We went up for Hot August Nights. We usually stay at another hotel but the pricing for this event is getting to be so expensive. We decided to try the Vagabond because the price we got from Orbitz was going to save us a good amount of money. To be honest this hotel was just as good as the hotel we normally stayed at. The girls that checked us in were very helpful and accommondating. The only thing is we were told we could book for next years event at the time of check out. The person told me to call back in a month and tell them you stayed this year. So that was a little disappointing. I would stay there again.

The person who checked us in was so nice, and helpful. If we didnt pre pay i would have stayed some where else. Rooms are small, very thin pillows, rooms didnt get cold. We where often very hot. people upstairs where loud. Breakfast that they offered was a danishes, muffins, coffee with grains, apple juice, and OJ (both had a stange taste).
