As a captain on a fishing boat moored behind the hotel i enjoy the proximity to work and use your hotel often as well as a lot of my passangers. They cater to fishermen's needs with a professional staff that are courteous and friendly. I recommend the Vegabond to all who inquire about lodging.

We used this motel as a overnight stay after a late flight in. Convenient from the airport ($12 taxi). The rooms are dated, and could do with a refurb but for the price that was expected. Pretty clean, odd bit of mouldy in bathroom. Comfy bed. Would use again as an easy stopover but not for longer.

This motel is close to the airport with free parking and right by the water. We chose a 1st floor room because there is no elevator. It was quiet and very clean and roomy for this level of accommodation. It is within walking distance to good local restaurants, especially Point Loma Seafood that is wonderful. The only negative is the...

We flew into San Diego late one evening and needed somewhere to stay for one night. This motel fit the bill. The rate was very reasonable and the location was very convenient to the airport and downtown. Our room was definitely not fancy but it was clean, the bed was comfortable and some upgrades had been made in the bathroom....

My staff and I are pleased you found our property clean and a good value. What more can we ask for but to satisfy our guests? Thank you for sharing your experience and comments. A recommendation to guests that do not like the parking lot rooms is to request poolside or second floor. Either way, thank you for your business,...

Stayed here for 1 night and was impressed with the comfortable bed, slight view of the harbor from my room{218} and the quiet. Didn't expect much considering the look of the building but the area is great and I had a pleasurable stay....not bad for inexpensive lodging in a really cool area.

Loved the location of this hotel, which is a huge selling point to me! So close to beach, awesome restaurants like pizza nova, stone brewery, point loma seafood, and so much more!

Enjoyed our stay less than 100 yards from the pier where we would leave for deep sea fishing. They had fruit and cereal out early for breakfast and allowed for us to leave our car parked at no extra charge while we were fishing.

This is a budget inn. Don't expect more, and you won't be disappointed. I've never felt unsafe, and everything is clean. There is evident wear, but again everything is functional and clean. The pool is welcome. The staff is pleasant. Really, it's what I look for when traveling - a good deal that meets my needs.

Room was not ready at check-in time. It's near the marina but no marina views & pretty noisy. Convenient location though & if you aren't spending a lot of time in your room it's acceptable. We were in San Diego for a few days before a cruise & busy seeing the sights. Very basic, you get what you pay for.
