Vagabond Inn San Pedro

Reviewed 1 October 2013 via mobile

We stayed there one night because it was close to the crise port. It was in a very rough looking part of town. Lots of people hanging around outside etc. we did not feel comfortable there at all but did stay. We went to a fast food place to eat and back to room before dark. Did not go out till the next morning. Also way overpriced for the quality of the place and ok.

Centrally located. Room is clean and quite spacious with a a king bed, value for money. But a glass wall... Picture perfect when viewing the street but for sleeping..quite uncomfy for the psyche. Heavy curtains can be pulled to cover the glass pane. Attendants are accommodating. Continental breakfast in a separate room, not a dining area. Ice available all day. Good for backpackers or a short stay.

Room Tip: Request for a room nearest the front entrance and nearest the lift.

We stayed one night in our way to LA. It was clean, convenient, no luxuries but is not what you’re looking for here, with a reasonable price. Great location if you’re taking a boat to Catalina, either from San Pedro or from Long beach. It took us 10 minutes to reach Long Beach port.

Our stay at the Vagabond was a worry free experience, Emmelin at the front desk was very friendly, professional and had answers for my inquisitive children. They were children friendly! I had frequented this hotel in the past and this was by far one of our better experiences! prices reasonable and rooms clean. the only negative was no coffee pot in the room, overall my family would use this hotel again.

Room Tip: If traveling with children, ask for a microwave or fridge to keep light snacks. Ground level room su...

This hotel is a disaster. We didn't even go into the room they gave us (which was the only one left according to the night manager) because as we approached it there were multiple transient type people hanging out on the railing off the 3rd floor who were loud, drinking and illegal substances being used. There was some female who was yelling at who knows what-we weren't staying to find out. Our safety felt compromised and there was no way I'd take my family into that unacceptable environment. The manager was a complete jerk. Disrespectful, rude, condescending... Beyond the worst I'd ever encountered...ever. I have no clue how there could be positive reviews after what we saw with our own eyes, the infestation of nasty people and the unexcusable way we were treated when we refused the room. We've stayed at many other hotels and have had great experiences that we've shared in other reviews...unfortunately this one was very bad. There are so many other affordable, clean, and safe hotels in the area that do not have the riff raff hanging out, loitering in the corridors that would be a much better choice for the traveling consumer in the area. Sad we had to find out the hard way!

My family and friends were taking a Graduation Celebration Cruise from Long Beach. I called the Vagabond Inn and the General Manager, Mr. Shiblee Ahmed, gave all of us a great rate which included breakfast, free shuttle transport to the cruise Port and leaving our cars at the hotel while we were on the cruise. He even honored the same price for family members who made their reservations at the last minute. The hotel was clean and the staff was polite, extremely helpful and our cars were safely protected while we were on the the cruise. Mr. Shiblee went out of his way to make sure that everyone had what they needed. If you are looking for a pre-cruise budget hotel, I highly recommend that you stay here.

Room Tip: Make sure you ask for a room with a fridge and TV. It is usually the same price if you have a group...
