Vagabond Inn Executive SFO Airport
Travel Blogs from Burlingame
Kl. er snart et om natten lokal tid - Johnnys kuffert er endelig ankommet og afhentet i SFO lufthavn. De havde glemt den i Frankfurt! Hotellet er indtaget og vi er godt møre! Flyvningen gik godt - vi var heldige at sidde ved siden af en sød pige fra San Francisco som gav os en masse gode råd og ideer! Amerikansk åbenhed når …
Flew in to San Francisco without any problems and got the shuttle to our hotel. As soon as we walked into our room the phone rang and it was Reidy ringing to confirm that him and Fran were meeting us for dinner.
They picked us up at 7pm (3am English !) and we went to nice little restaurant where we had a lovely meal and a good old natter.< …
... beer and a chat with the hostel staff before sharing a room with a young lady that lived at the hostel and doesn't have a job. Strange. But I guess it beats paying San Fran's rent. They even share bedrooms here! It's not uncommon to find 5 people in a two bedroom house! This morning we woke early, Megan went for a run to 'Knob Hill' which is a hill shaped like a knob. ;) We then headed to the famous Lumbard street. It has 8 hair pin turns and has amazing views as ...
... wife Angela. Tyler is about 8 months old and is cute as cute can be!
The rest of the visit was doing laundry and grocery shopping. Stuff that's pretty tough to wax poetic about. Nor does it make the most fascinating reading so we'll sign off from here for now.
Next stop the Encinal Yacht Club and the first Baja HaHa meeting. (How's that for a teaser?)
... talked to them so feel very comfortable.
Work is great, everyone is lovely and the views are great. I haven't seen much of the winery yet as I was stuck in the break room doing safety stuff. They do love their safety. We have to watch a PowerPoint (uni flashback!) then do a quiz.
I am the only one doing safety tomorrow so we are hoping we will finish about lunchtime. Then who knows what I'll get to do :-)
Wish me luck xx

Historical Traveler Reviews Vagabond Inn Executive SFO Airport Burlingame
I am in my room now. They gave me a smoking room even though my prepaid confirmation (which I showed them) said clearly non-smoking. The room is so thoroughly disgusting that if I could, I would sleep fully clothed, however, since the AC unit does not work and it is about 90 degrees in my room as I type, that's probably not an option. When I went down to the lobby to tell the young lady about the AC (after turning it on and letting it run for three straight hours), she said, "let me expalin to you...if it is 58 degrees or less and you turn on the AC, it will only blow hot air." She suggested I open a window. Since the window leads right onto the walkway outside my room with only a flimsy screen and since there are children running around and people all hanging out with their doors propped open (obviously the same issue with the AC units), that's not such a good idea. The carpets are soiled horribly and my curtains have a large burn hole in them (Room 310). The room smells bad and overall is filthy. I wouldn't recommend this hotel to ANYBODY under ANY circumstances.
Good value and location
The Vagabond Inn is an excellent choice for those who are looking for a convenient location near SFO Airport and the best value for their $. The rooms are certainly nothing special but they are clean and orderly and have all that you will need for a comfortable stay (except the bed- that was hard as a rock!). The nice thing about the Vagabond is that they offer free breakfast in the lobby each morning and have two computers that you can use free of charge to access the internet. They also have a free shuttle to/from the airport though we did not ride it.
The location is just 2 minutes from highway 101 which can put you in downtown SF or Palo Alto in 15 minutes or so.
Thank you for the great hospitality you extended me on my trip over there. I really enjoyed their service very much. The front desk people are very genuine, I feel like at home. They are really helpful even attend to detail-printed us a map so I could navigate our way around there. Really enjoyed the stay and surely will come back on my next trip!!!
I Loved this place!
I got in late one night and missed my car rental reservation, and had to stay overnight til a car was available in the morning. I had never heard of a Vagabond Inn before, I found them on the courtesy-call board and I was pleasantly surprised when I got there. They had free wireless internet, which after a dreadful day traveling, I could connect with my family.
I look forward to another visit to San Fran, and I will be staying there again!
Our stay at the Vagabond Inn SFO was miserable from the start. We were left waiting outside at the airport on a cold and wet February night for an hour and a half for the hotel shuttle, which never arrived. We called the hotel three times, having to scrounge up change for the pay phone, because there was not a courtesy phone, as we had been told. We waited at the hotel shuttle stop, watching all the other hotels pick up their guests. After 1-1/2 hours of shivering and three calls to the Vagabond, we gave up and called a taxi. The Vagabond didn't want to refund us for the taxi fare, didn't believe it cost us $14, and were not very apologetic. We'll choose other hotels in the future.
Nice hotel in great location
I've stayed at Vagabond Inn Burlingame in October. I was flying following morning to Hawaii so I took advantage of their Park and Fly package. They took me to and from SFO for free. Breakfast was great and it was free too! Room was nice with fantastic bay view. Staff was very nice.
A great place to stay
I chose the Vagabond Inn because of its location. It is close to the 101 and youcan find it very easily. Check-in was fast, actually, everything was fast, done with a smile by the staff and everybody was friendly. The rooms are quite big for the price, well equipped and had TV, coffee maker, etc etc etc. I really liked it. The breakfast was not too overwhelming but you could have cereals, fruit, make your own waffels, there were danish also......
Very convenient were the computers with high speed access that you could use for free in the lobby!!
Great Place, Great Price, Close to Hwy and Airport
Chose this place for price but was pleasantly suprised with the room. Newly remodeled and currently redoing the lobby and office. Close to airport, restaurants, and Hwy 101. Easy to get in and out of to head to San Francisco. The free breakfast is not going to fill you up. If you want a full meal, pay the extra and go to La Quinta in San Bruno. More costly but you won't be spending on breakfast. I would stay at the Vagabond again. Very friendly staff, courteous.
