over the past 7 years i have stayed at the vagabond inn due to their room + price, recently their prices are almost the same as 5 star hotels ( ritz carlton, hyatt, marriott ) which makes it very hard to justify staying with the vagabond inn and their dough nut breakfast.

This was a pretty reasonable place for downtown LA and right next to USC, where we were going for an event. TV did not work in room, they said they could not fix but offered to have us switch rooms, we decided it wasn't worth the hassle. Don't count on eating breakfast here, there is not much that they offer.

We are USC parents. It's close to USC and reasonably priced. It's clean and comfortable. The room has a microwave and a refrigerator (very important to us). Bring your own shampoo, or pick some up at the CVS nearby. No need spending money for a taxi or uber-public transportation is easy. Bus 81 will take you near Pershing Square and... More

I had to stay near the downtown area so I decided to give this inn a try. It was clean and quite at night. There are also many restaurant choices within walking distance. The staff is friendly and helpful. Thumbs up for the Vagabond Inn.

The convenience to the USC campus cannot be beat. The rooms were clean, but spare. This is a no-frills location, but the staff was friendly, the parking was ample, and the breakfast was fine. The bed was not luxurious, but it was fine for our needs. You aren't paying for a luxury place, so it is to be expected. I... More

Great place to stay in a decent area. Beds were so comfortable. Nice to have a fridge and microwave too. TV could be bigger, but we were so busy it didn't really matter much. Free parking and free breakfast to start your day. Helpful front desk employees too.

Perfect if you have a student in the dorm and you are on a budget. We used two beds and there was plenty of room. Cheap towels, but several. Cheap soaps but not surprised. Good parking that was a huge help.
