      Historical Traveler Reviews Vagabond Inn - Glendale

      Great Surprise

      from

      My husband and I stayed here for our trip to LA. I picked this hotel soley by the pictures and other reviews and I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. We rented a king nonsmoking on 3rd floor --- the room was exactly like the pictures and very clean. I did ask for 3rd floor since more than likely those rooms are used less. We did have a weird burn mark on the vanity mirror but we overlooked it since the rest of the room was great. We also ate at Foxy's down the street -- they had a wonderful menu and the food was great-- the hotel's breakfast was a few donuts, fruit, juice and coffee. We also walked down to a mall area that had plenty of other food choices like Olive Garden, Quizno's, Panda Express. The donut place by the hotel was awesome too!! We didn't have time to check out the pool but it did look inviting. I would stay at this hotel again in a heartbeat.

      An 'okay' place to stay

      from

      Wanted to explore Hollywood and a few of the studios. The hotel is in a really good location - right off I-5 and near downtown. I chose the hotel solely on reading good review on tripadvisor. I was a little disappointed with the size of the room and the condition of the carpet and matress/box spring. We probably had one of the smaller rooms in the complex - should've asked for an upgrade. The carpet in the room needed shampoo cleaning because it stained my white socks brown. The matress/box spring looked really old and had a few large, dark stains. The bathroom, sink, towels, and sheet were all clean. Parking is free and seemed to have alot of space in early Sept. Dined at Foxy's a few doors down - great place and good food as other reviews say. If visiting Glendale again, I probably would try another hotel because of my experience with the room. Because of the majority of good review, though, others may want to give the hotel a chance. If possible, ask for a room upgrade.

      Great Place for the $$

      from

      Great hotel! I would definitely stay there again! The hotel staff was extremely kind and cheerful. We stayed over the Thanksgiving weekend (3 nights) and never heard another guest! Although the hotel is NOT 3+ stars, it certainly met our needs. Clean, but the plumbing could use a little attention, and the bathtub could use some more safety tape on the tub. As other guests have stated the Front Desk controls the air and heating for your room. It was really stuffy in the middle of the night. Just opened the window, but wouldn't recommend it for woman sleeping alone, as there were a few (2) unsavory characters hanging out at the soda machine. I never felt unsafe and I would definitely stay there again.

      An absolute MUST is a visit to Foxy's for breakfast, lunch or dinner (which is right down the street). The service is awesome and the food is fresh! Overall, it was a great deal for the money. I even saved more by booking online $71/night. If you're looking for a safe and clean hotel for a great price this is the place.

      Bargain Base for Doing L.A.

      from

      We spent 3 nights here (Aug 22-24 '05). While the motel is nothing to get excited about, at around $80 a night, it met our needs, which were basically a place to rest our heads after touring around the L.A./Burbank area all day. The room & bathroom were clean, altho the linens and blankets were pretty shopworn (cigarette holes in the blankets, some stains on the sheets. We never used the outdoor pool (just off parking lot). The inn is right off of the main downtown Glendale St., so you'll be able to find pretty much anything you need quite nearby. It is also quite convenient if you're planning a visit to Warner Studios or the Universal Studios themepark. We had a 3rd fl. room & it was quite quiet.

      Perfect L.A. Location

      from

      We stayed at the Glendale Vagabond Inn for two nights on a Trip to Magic Mountain and Universal. The room was very clean and modern. The staff were very friendly and helpful and were eager to assist in any way possible. We were directed to a neighbourhood restaurant nearby "Foxy's" which was excellent. Great food and a Vagabond Discount to boot! Will stay again!

      Good Place To Stay

      from

      Stayed here for 3 nights with my wife and two teens, rooms are a little small but very clean, close parking, and extra friendly staff. Paid $89 per night for a weeknight and $99 for a weekend night. Prefect place to stay if you do not want to pay near $200 per night. Close to highway 5 and Dodger stadium. Foxys a few doors down was an excellent place to eat and offered %10 off with your Vagabond room key. Pool was small but also very nice and clean. I would stay here again and we are pickey.

      WOULD STAY AGAIN: PRICE/COMFORT/CONVENIENCE

      from

      I loved the location: relatively easy access to major freeways, but without the traffic noise. Walking distance to large Galleria mall and trendy Brand Ave. Clean pool. Donuts and O.J./Coffee in the morning. I had the Queen single room/non-smoking. Interior is nice, with good comfortably padded carpet and nice funiture and decor. The bathroom and vanity area were clean and nice (and I am picky). The shower head is an adjustable/massage type.

      the only thing i could warn you about is that the main office controls the a/c temps for your room. I remember briefly glancing at a sign stating this. I don't think they ever turned it on, becuase it was very warm when I returned in the evening. I would have to open my door and window to vent. Lucky for me I sorta like the heat, but could see it being a problem for others.

      The front desk clerks were always helpful and friendly. Glad I stayed there and would return.

      A nice place to stay.

      from

      I have visited California 30 times now and this is the first time in Glendale. Although I always visit Glendale Galleria I thought it was about time to stay there. This hotel is one block from the mall and is conveniently located near main streets. The rooms are a little small but perfectly clean and have internet access and coffee making facilities as well as a clean fridge. The pool is tiny but deep, but i guesss most people arrive late and check out early. The breakfast donuts are wonderfully fresh and mighty tasty, as is the receptionist early in the morning. Priced at around $70 per night you could easily pay a lot more for a less comfortable hotel. I'll be staying there again in September.

      Most Excellent

      from

      Excellent stay. Staff very informative and pleasant. Worth the drive out of the city. Rooms clean comfortable and a very plesant stay. The shopping centre on the door step was the biggest I have seen - it went on for miles. Local internet cafe wonderful and steps away from the Inn.

      Most Excellent

      from

      Would stay there again anyday, Wonderful location just a short drive away from the madness of LA. Staff friendly and helpful, and seem to have endless information about the local area, and very pleasant.

      Rooms clean tidy and comfortable.

The horse was still panting loudly and it's muscles and veins thumping. We wished Kayla well and congratulated her on the win before moving back up to the seats.

Everything we could read about where to eat convinced us that it would be 1; overpriced, and 2; not very good, so after settling in we opted for overpriced, ordinary room service in the comfort of our room. Plus it was cold and foggy outside, so wasn't a bad option. Got up and out of there by 9 and began the last 400kms to ...

      Kenn and I were up early, again, but this time just to get out of this the worse hotel/motel in the world. As we were leaving we met a guest from the room opposite and because of his grimace I had to ask... "Worse room ever?" I asked... "We didn't even have clean sheets" was the response... urrrgggghhhhh... I have to admit I had a very poor sleep, got it into my head about bedbugs and fleas and well, that was that, hahahahahaha What a ...
