Perfect service, clean and tidy rooms. Staff couldn't be more helpful. Very secure place with parking.
It was a bit away from the tourist attractions but a can cost less than $20 dollars to most of the attractions.
I would recommend the vagabond to people on a budget :)

My husband and I loved this hotel which is close to everything in San Fran. Lovely friendly staff, simple healthy breakfast, very secure, parking under the rooms, small with fridge and microwave but very quaint and clean. We stayed 4 nights and would recommend to anyone who is on a budget and wants to be close to everything.

Room Tip: Ask to be towards the back if you like it a little quieter, traffic noise at the front.

The rooms where big, clean and the complex is very secure. The staff where amazing and so helpful. Close to everything and you can walk to most attractions in the SF city. For what your paying its definetly value for money! Highly Recommend.

I've stayed here a few times over the past year, and have been mostly happy with this property. The staff is pleasant and seem very hard-working and eager to provide the guests with good service, which is head and shoulders above most hotels within the budget category. The rooms are on the smallish side but perfectly adequate for 1-2 people, and I'd be hard-pressed to find much dirt. Unfortunately, the prices have increased consistently such that I have a hard time recommending paying over $100 per night, unless you absolutely need to be in the neighborhood. FYI, the previous review is NOT this hotel, as it's not on the waterfront nor near the airport.

Hi John,

We are glad you choose to stay with us multiple times over the past, and we are coming up with a "loyalty rewards" package for regular customers, this should be implemented very soon so the prices and packages should work to be better for prized guests such as yourself.

We hope you will choose to stay with us again, we look forward to having you over!
Thanks! Have a good day!

We stayed at the Vagabond Inn, which was only a few minutes from the airport ( not the Civic Center ). It was priced well and on the water front. There's restaurants within walking distance. Being so close to the airport, we thought it would have a lot of noise, but it wasn't. I would recommend this for short stays. It was clean and the breakfast was decent.

Having just arrived in SF and realising that our prebooked and paid accomadtion turned out to be a scam, we found the Vagabond Inn a few blocks over. The manager was extremely friendly and understanding. Being both students we were on a budget and we found Vagabond Inn to be great value for money. The room was cosy and clean with a beautfful sky window bathroom.
The neighborhood was close to everything as well as quiet. Complimentary continental breakfast and great customer service. I can honestly say I would recommend Vagabond to anyone visiting SF.

We truly enjoyed our time and appreciate the hospitality we received.
