Stayed here one night mid August 2013. Large, clean room. Breakfast was great with good selection and very fresh fruit. Beautiful view of mountains. I would recommend staying in room away from the main street. Would definitely stay here next time.

We were a group of 40 people and stayed one night. Danielle and Shellina were the ones who checked us in, provided information and met any addtional requests made by the guests. Both were pleasnat, curteous, efficient and eager to help us. During the complementary breakfast, the food was promptly replenished and the tables were cleaned to accommodate the influx of guests. They accommodated 40 people for breakfast in less than one hour. Danielle and Shellina made us welcome and our stay a pleasant one.

Room Tip: We were on the first floor facing the parking lot, but our room was very quiet. The innhas 2 floors...

We stayed at the Vagabond Inn for one night in early August 2013. The room we had was very spacious. The free breakfast in the morning was adequate. The hotel has seen some wear and tear but all in all it was a very good experience. The rate was extremely reasonable.

We come down to Los Banos once a year or so to spend some time in the nearby National WIlderness Reserve and have dinner at Wool Growers' Basque Restaurant (a destination in and of itself!) In the past we've stayed at the dog friendly Best Western, but this year noticed that the Vagabond was also dog friendly and decided to try it out. We were quite satisifed with our stay. The room was spacious and clean, and unlike another reviewer I appreciated the notices in the room about conservation. The location was excellant for people travelling with dogs- about a 15 minute walk down a quiet residential street there is a nice big park and walking trail. Very good to not have to walk our dogs on a busy thoroughfare.
Although we did not use the pool this trip, it looks incredibly inviting. We will remember suits next time.
The only complaint we had, and this is true of most hotels, is that the breakfast is heavy on sweets and carbs, and not very appealing to people who like to start their day with a some protein. But there are nearby cafes to get some eggs.

Room Tip: We would have preferred a king bed, but for some reason the hotel's policy is that all of their...

Dear Guest,

We appreciate your review of our hotel. We are glad we could accommodate you with providing a clean room for you and your four legged family member. Unfortunately we do not have enough King suites to provide for a 'pet friendly' suite at this time. We have more doubles, especially ground floor. This makes it more convenient for the pet owner to aire your pet.
I hope to see you and your pet again soon!

Regards

It's no wonder this place is listed as #1 hotel in Los Banos. The staff went out of their way to help us. Not knowing that they had no elevator, I booked a room and brought a very heavy suitcase. The front desk clerk offered and then carried my heavy bag up to my room. So sweet.

The breakfast offered the usual cereal, oatmeal, toast and bagels. But it was so nicely set up that it felt like a treat. My girls loved making their own waffles.

The indoor pool with palm trees was nice but it had tons of chlorine. Our room (both times we stayed) was very clean. This just didn't feel like a chain hotel, but rather a bit historic.

We liked it so much we stayed there again on the way back (but I was sure to request a downstairs room.)

Room Tip: Downstairs rooms are more convenient.

When I discovered that they wouldn't honor the room price they advertise on the internet, I probably should have gone elsewhere but hoped this would be a nice place and booked anyway. It's not terrible, just run-down and a little irritating.

The carpeting is threadbare and looks dirty. Whether it looks dirty because it's worn out or looks dirty because it's dirty, I can't tell. The walls in our room were banged up and needed a coat of paint. The room was festooned with five "save the planet" type notices plus a tip envelope. We are never wasteful and always leave a tip but all that is a little irritating.

To park in their lot, you are expected to put a parking permit on your dash. (Like I want to trudge back out there in the heat.) We switched light bulbs around but the only place with enough light to read comfortably was the bathroom, which is blindingly bright, especially in the middle of the night when you are trying to use the facilities and the light comes on automatically. There is a nice worktable, but to use your computer and plug in the desk lamp, you have to unplug the television and the floor lamp.

They have a nice-looking pool and an exercise room. I couldn't figure out how to set the elliptical machine, and none of the controls on the stationary bicycle worked.

The breakfast room is spacious and attractive,. Breakfast is about what you’d expect at a medium priced motel – cereal, fruit, yoghurt, coffee, juice, and waffles. The staff is friendly and seems efficient. It’s not a terrible place but I wouldn’t be eager to stay there again.

Dear Guest;
Thank you for taking the time out to write a review for our property.
Yes, we agree our hotel is showing some age. We have started on a renovation plan which includes new carpet and new paint. We hope to implement very soon.
We apologize for not doing a web match for you. These rates are discontinued when our hotel reaches certain occupancy.
This may have been the case; I do not have enough information at this time to reply any further.
In regards to the ‘Save the Planet’ cards; we have removed one. It is very important to us that we pass along the “Conservation” message to all guests’.
We are sorry to hear that you found some of the room’s contents irritating. We will try to do better and not clutter up so much.
Our hotel requires all our guests’ vehicles to have a parking permit placed on the dash board. This eliminates “unauthorized” vehicles to park in our parking lot overnight. We want ‘our’ guests’ to have access to all of our parking spaces, and to know that we practice security policies even in the parking areas.
The light in the bathroom only goes on automatically if you are in a handicap room. This is for safety reasons.
Thank you for bringing these issues to our attention. We appreciate all your reviews and comments.
We hope that you will let us have the opportunity of serving you again.
Best regards
