“Pokey hole”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 September 2010

It's an old hotel despite its renovation of the bathrooms (cheap job). Unfriendly staff. Dirty room. The armchair had animal hair on the cushion. We pulled it out so the cleaner could see it and at least vacuum it. Nope. Breakfast is a joke - danish and cheap muffins. The pool is very small and not attractive. Not worth the lower SD price. The neighborhood is not attractive ans eerily deserted at night. Check out Cabrillo National Monument about 3 miles away. Nice views from the rocks down at the base of Point Loma. Watch out for the waves. It would be impossible to get out if you get swept in.

The room was clean and comfortable. We got free Wi-fi. I like the fact that the pool is heated. The service was good. The free parking was nice. The location is 10 min away from main visit points in san diego. In general, i enjoyed my stay.

Our ten night stay at the Vagabond Inn on Point Loma was great. Rooms are comfortably furnished with newly remodeled bathrooms. This location gets you away from the noise and traffic of the city although you're only five minutes from the airport.Parking is free--a bonus in this city. The pool was warm and included both shallow and deep areas--good for adult swimming and kid playing. The desk staff is very accommodating and the cleaning staff did a fine job of cleaning up the beach sand we managed to track in. A great bargain in our favorite expensive city.

Great location; the hotel is near the airport and just a short drive from downtown. The room was immaculate and the bed was very comfortable. There was a little fridge and microwave in the room. A good breakfast in the mornings, the muffins were very tasty.

Very good restaurants within walking distance. The staff was very friendly and courteous. Excellent service!

A very nice place to stay. The only downside was no jacuzzi but the pool was very nice.

We were there for almost 3 weeks. The rooms are not fancy, but clean. We looked at many of the small hotels in the neighborhood and liked this one best. Beds comfortable. Linens in good condition. Continental breakfast in the small lobby had Great chocolate croissant, other pastries, fruit, juice and coffee. Staff was friendly and helpful. Price was reasonable. We could not have found a better location. A short walk to many excellent restaurants. Close to downtown, but with a neighborhood feeling. All daily needs services within walking distance. (less than 5 blocks)

Stayed in Cali for 5 days on a road trip... Have myself, husband and 2 teens. This was the BEST hotel and OUTSTANDING price!! We are not stuffy snobbish people looking to blow hundreds on a bed so this was perfect!! Very clean, most comfy bed so far, staff was awesome! Rooms were updated and cute.. Marina right outside with neat view in back! VERY COMFY BED again.. Lol! We'll stay here on our next trip for more nights instead of wasting it on cheap roach motels!! :-) nice pastry, fruit, juice and coffee breakfast... Sweet bathroom with indie feel overall
