Reviewed 26 February 2015

I usually have good luck at this hotel but this stay was horrible. The room didn't feel clean and it had a horrible urine smell. Very noisy too. The breakfast was ok but there's no seating and it was really crowded. We come to san Francisco quite often but we won't be staying here again.

The price was right for a last minute room. The room had a bit of an odor but bearable and clean. The hotel has two amazing restaurants right next door and a great continental breakfast in the morning.

It was possible for me to logon to the wifi, but it was so slow that I couldn't get any work done. I could load one web page every 10 minutes or so. Even low-bandwidth tools like ssh didn't work. This is a serious inconvenience for business travel. The Vagabond needs to pay attention to reality and put strict limiters...

A quick shuttle ride from SFO takes you to this old lady of a hotel which looks like it belongs more on the remote islands of the Pacific than among its gleaming bland neighbours. Small but decent rooms, used by aircrew and budget smart travellers. It’s worth paying for an Oceanside room which is truly Oceanside with nice views. I...

I have stayed at three other hotels at this area but found that Vagabond Inn is the best! Just the design of the hotel was pleasing to us. There are only two floors. There is a lift if you have heavy suitcases. We enjoyed the ability to just walk down and up the stairs when we did not have heavy...

Clean, nice breakfast, affordable. Rooms have everything one needs. A bit noisy in some locations, the airport is just across the bay. Big plus for me is that one can open the windows. That the "airconditioning" is not really that but central heating or cooling may be a minus for people used to airconditioning. In the Bay area this is...

This hotel is conveniently located right next to the San Francisco Airport. Its clean and roomy and the price can include parking. Why drive late at night or early in the morning when you can rest soundly at the Vagabond Inn! Get a bay front room and watch the jumbos fly in! Fun and convenient! I always stay here!

Average place but good for the money. Simple breakfast with waffle, fruits... Beware of the noise from the airport. It can be noisy. Great view over the bay. My room was looking over the water. It was great.

The hotel is about 30 minutes from most of the sightseeing attractions in San Francisco. But, I rented a car for $25 a day and even with parking costs in San Francisco, it was still better than the prices of hotels in the city and I was able to drive anywhere I wanted like Saucalito. Anyway, the hotel is nice....

Very good location, a clean and spacious room and surprising a very nice complimentary hot breakfast. Great value for the price and location, especially when a number of higher-priced hotels are close by. I will stay again.
