Reviewed 15 March 2016

The room had nice crown moldings, comfortable beds, wifi and tv. However, the carpet was very dirty and the bedspread and shames were worn out. Old built-up dirt in the corners on the bathroom floor. Basically old dirt built up in many areas. Don't go barefoot.

Whenever we are in Whittier area, which is at least twice a year, we always stay at Vagabond Inn. We have always been very happy with the accommodations and friendly service. The hotel is updated, clean and fresh in all areas: rooms, grounds, pool, ect. They do provide a very basic breakfast of cereal, apples, bananas, muffins, coffee and juice....

Nice room with very comfortable beds. The price per night was very reasonable. Location was superior, and it was easy to get to and from Whittier College in a few minutes. The room was quiet. The morning buffet was a nice treat, even though there is limited seating in the lobby. Enjoyed my stay and would recommend Vagabond to anyone...

This is great place if you are staying overnight or for 2 nights. The price was very right. The check-in was not automated and my room provided was not ready on time.

Such luxury at such an affordable rate!

The desk people were friendly and welcoming. I was able to...

This hotel reminded me of the seedy ones in Vegas. We only stayed here because everywhere else was booked. The room smelled of cigarettes and flop sweat and was kind of old. This place could use a remodel. For the price, I expected much nicer.
