Vagabond Inn Chula Vista

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Very noisy. People partying all night. We could not sleep the whole night.

Nice hotel and personable staff but it's ruined by the scum that hang around the place. I felt the need to be armed just to go outside for a cigarette. The A/C is insufficient as well. I was sweating all night but it was freezing in the bathroom.

Good economic place to stay, not so close to beaches or sea world. But easily drivable with in 15 miles

I felt that the clerk profiled guest she put me way in the back where guest live i had to go to office for a iron and board old small ironing board and iron cracked and leak water for what I paid for 5ngt stay was not worth the rate! !!!

I was deciding between two hotels and went with this one because it had a Jacuzzi next to the pool. However, when I got arrived there were big clumps of hair floating in the water and it was ice cold! So much for that:(

This place is an okay stay if you're not spending any time at the hotel. The bathroom was full of ants. We were gone from 9-3 on Friday and I still didn't have my room cleaned.

This was not a bad stay. I just could have done without the no iron, the questionable looking breakfast and the ants and little spiders that attacked during my sleep.

very clean rooms, staff very nice and comfortable beds

rooms are nice. had a problem with the internet the first day and they moved us the next to improve our internet service. they are currently switching internet services and should be better very soon. overall nice stay will stay there again. one side note if you are someone with mobility issues they have a lift for getting into and out of the hot tub and pool. you don't find those very many places.

As soon as we walked in the ROOM looked very outdated and old (needs to be seriously updated). We had very limited towels. The room had the tv on the complete opposite side of the beds making it very difficult to watch tv unless your slanted. There is alot of suspicious activity going on outside as far as prostitution, drug dealers, gangs. AS soon as it turned night the ROACHES CAME OUT!! I must have been killing them ALL NIGHT!! Making it very hard to go to sleep.The front doesn't care who they give a ROOM too as long as you have $. Upon check out they made it very difficult for us to get our deposit back saying the towels looked old and tried to keep my money. After reapetedly, explaining that's what they have gave us in the beginining we finally got it back.

Good hotel for the price Needs to be updated but clean

I had a excellent day at the hotel and I recommend it to friends and family.

No complAints and im coming back again soon. Great all around service!

clean, quiet room. Close to restaurants and beaches in south bay area. The breakfast was donuts and coffee.

ITs worth the money , I highly recommend this hotel.

Stayed for one night only. Close to shopping mall. 15 minutes from border. Staff very helpful.

Was what we expected, a budget room clean and was quite. Staff was great, only issue was that the room had a slight moldy smell.

This is a very enjoyable hotel lived it. I will be back

They are very polite. The hotel is very quiet and convientlt located near the freeway.

The price we paid for this hotel was almost double that of a nicer, newer Motel 6 just around the corner. The WiFi included in the room did not work. We had to drive to McDonalds to get WiFi to use. That gave us knowledge of Motel 6 right behind it. The place smelled of old building and the drains were slow but the ladies there were friendly and kept the place clean. For the price I would not go back.
