Mold on shower handle, needs new carpet, new beds,more ashtray containers, limit alcohol use, sigh saying no sex in pool or Jacuzzi.Put some money into upgrades.Fix pool. Security needed. Fix whole place up. You have abrasive laundry detergent. Have early check in. Hire more housekeeping. Spend some of the money your making

Clean, comfortable, and close to restaurants, shops, and beach. No need to drive anywhere to have a relaxing time. Very reasonable. My dog enjoyed his stay too. A place we will return to when we need a weekend getaway from the LA area.

3 night stay to visit family. Room was ready early and even though it was previously a smoking room, there was no lingering smoke smell. Wonderful bed. Quiet room. Basic continental breakfast in lobby. Only downside - no hangars and staff didn't know where extras were kept. Have stayed here in the past and will definitely stay here again.

Everything was good about this room and our stay except the sink and bathtub did not drain properly. The free continental breakfast was a nice added bonus. Front office staff were very courteous and very helpful. All in all it was an enjoyable repeat stay. We have made several visits to this motel over the years and have not been... More

Room was neat and clean with recent updates (I stay at this motel at least once a year). Staff was courteous, accommodating and very nice. The room was first floor and quiet, and a few minutes walk via pedestrian overpass to the beach and Pier. It's a good value for the money. I'll continue staying here on my trips home.

This is our 2nd stay at Vagabond Inn in Ventura and continue to find it a clean, quiet place to stay with a very short walk to the ocean. We had a great stay the first time and hoped it would be a repeat performance and it was. Our only recommendation is for a more developed breakfast but for the... More

We recently spent 5 nights at Vagabond - our first stay at this hotel. Our room (2 queens) was simple and met our needs for a family of three. The heated pool was great. We also enjoyed the breakfast fare - coffee, tea, fruit, and assorted muffins, scones, and English muffins (all packaged from a local bakery) along with assorted... More

We booked this room 2 hours before arriving I was so sick of staying at motel 6 and getting no loyalty discount. We ended up in a two room suite for 20 dollars more than Motel 6. The area was good room clean excellent friendly staff well worth the extra 20... and a loyalty program as well as breakfast mini... More

I wasn't expecting much from this motel, and it didn't even meet my low expectations. The carpet was so stained and dirty I wouldn't walk on it barefooted. And that doesn't mention the holes in the carpet. It took three tries to get a room key that worked more than one time. I couldn't get the air conditioner to work... More

Paula, I'm sorry your stay was not as expected. I had maintenance check the AC and the vending machines. We found the AC to be working fine. It's possible it was not turned on at the thermostat on the wall. All the vending machines are working. The bathroom windows face the outside of the property, so it is possible that... More

We've stayed here three times. Liked it the past two times, but this year was a totally different experience. The room wasn't cleaned when we returned after six pm on our first day. Called the office and they said "oh the cleaning lady is up there, go talk to her" We did and went to dinner. Came back to a... More
