The place is old and dirty. The only good thing is that staff are great!!! Totally great personality and they try their best to make it easy for you..... And then the reality: >>>>> The bed sheets are dirty. The place is dirty very dirty. Bring your towels and blanket and pillow cover if you plan to stay. That is because their washer and dryer is very very old and does not work properly. Their air condition sounds like a motor engine. The door nubs are old, the door is old, the washing hand sinks are old and rusted and sound so loud when you turn on the water fossett. I won't be back there. It only is okay if you have to walk to USC and only for one or maximum two nights. I believe it is not a safe place for single travelers. I saw cops twice in property while I was there. Oh and the "free Breakfast" means: old donuts, high fat milk, old apples and banana, old bagels with jam and cream cheese. It is very good if you are planing to get Diabetics or Heart attack.

We recently stayed in a family suite while our daughter visited USC. It was a quick 10 minute walk to campus. The free parking is very convenient. We enjoyed the swimming pool and found the staff friendly and helpful. However, the room was quite run-down. The air conditioner was loud but worst of all, only the main room is air conditioned, not the extra bedroom, so the door had to be left open. The TV had poor reception, especially for the lower numbered channels (which were the local channels). The shower was great with good hot water, and the beds were comfortable. We also noted stains in the carpet, but everything else was clean. Overall, we thought it was a reasonable value but it would be nicer with some improvements.

Although we were grateful for a semi-reasonably-priced hotel near USC so that we could walk to campus for our son's orientation and registration, we have to state that the Vagabond Inn room we stayed in needs improvement work. The tub faucet and shower handle had to be pounded forcefully back into place to stop water dripping, the A/C was inconveniently located at the back of the room rather than the front, wallpaper was peeling and mildew growing around the edge in the bathroom, which didn't have an exhaust fan for steam, and the carpet was stained. Tending toward "seedy" pretty much sums it up. I was also disappointed to see the lobby using Styrofoam cups for coffee (come on, be just a little more environmentally minded), and the OJ dispenser wasn't dispensing OJ, just orange-flavored water.

I am so impressed with Nazneen's professionalism. Nazneen made every effort to make sure I had a clean room at 12:30 PM (arriving early) and modestly stated, "This is my job." Sophie and Natalie was just as courteous and pleasant. Although the rooms are alittle run down the staff makes me come back again and again.

My son goes to usc so we have always tried to stay here,but usually it's booked. I would say it's a little like a Fairfield inn room. All the staff are very friendly and the property was very clean. My husband and son swam in the pool. Continental breakfast was served in the office, so it's best to bring it back to the room. Bagels and donuts of good quality. Coffee, lemonade, etc available all day. Bed was very comfortable. Fridge and micro in room. Free on site parking. Doors open to outside, so I would not feel comfortable staying there alone, but would definitely stay there again with family....classic motel.

I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting the campus. Having booked the hotel last minute the check in process was very smooth and even traveling around at night despite the questionable neighborhood wasn't too worrisome. Considering the two star ranking this hotel is above average and worth giving a shot, especially if you just need a place to stay for a few nights, because of the spacious room and amenities.
