    Historical Traveler Reviews Vagabond Inn San Pedro Los Angeles

    Great location


    This is a great location to stay before you go on a cruise. We only paid about $109.00 to stay and to leave our vehicle in the hotel for 7 days. Plus they have a complimentary shuttle that takes you to the world cruise center in the morning. The room was in good clean condition and the staff was very helpful.

    I would recomend this hotel to anyone who would like to save money and would like to stay in a good hotel.

    I would definity come back to this hotel.

    Good Place to Stay


    We stayed at this hotel the night before our cruise, especially if your taking Royal Caribbean, the port is just down the street. Also the hotel is next to a all you can eat sushi place (great food too) The rooms are very clean, the staff is very helpful, and the housekeeper did an awesome job.

    Enjoyable time


    I read all the comments, and they made me laugh, since this is LA, and not podunk Montana.

    I like staying here, it was clean, and the rates were decent for the area.

    Bad niegborhood


    We stayed at the vagabound after reading reviews in Trip advisor. We were just on a overnight before going on a cruise from San Pedro harbor. Room was OK,the carpet was very gaudy in color and hotel itself shows sign of age. The hotel also is a "rent by the week" hotel and some of the guests were quite loud during the night with pounding on the doors ,etc. The worst part of the hotel is the location. Homeless people sleeping on the street and bushes around the parking area. Armed security in the convience store next door. We did not have any problems but worried about car and belongings during the stay. Might stay again because of bargain price but would not venture on outside streets.

    Wake up to the rush of huge semi-truck traffic! Loud continuous traffic!


    My understanding in the hotel online reservation business is that if you go for best rates through online discount services, you are NOT really reserving through the hotel itself.

    We did an online and sure enough the room we got was facing the street where huge semi-trucks travel early in the morning, and all morning to get to the bridge which is nearby. San Pedro is close to international shipping lines where continuous trucks pass.

    The noise is unbearable!

    And I believe we discussed this with staff who blamed it on online hotel reservation services. I read in USA Today, that this is not uncommon.

    So, with this particular hotel, right on the main drag, you will hear the traffic, huge semi-trucks passing-by-type traffic. And I can't imagine a room in the back being much better.

    They have done a lot of changes here! This place is awesome!


    I come to San Pedro on business every few months. I have stayed at the Vagabond Inn several times over the past year. Recently I noticed they got new carpet in the rooms, and the staff is better than ever. Omar at the desk is very helpful, and they now have a shuttle service (I saved money not having to rent a car to get to my office and back to the hotel)

    Great job!

    San Pedro Vag


    The hotel is average. Rooms are kind of small .... We requested a King size bed with a roll away and we ended up with 2 queens.... Front desk help was fine...... Not much to do there.....

    Loved my stay at the Vagabond


    I stayed at the Vagabond in San Pedro. The hotel is in a great location close to everything. The management and staff run a very good operation as it is always clean and enjoyable to be at . I stayed for a week as business traveler and i would reccommend it to anyone .

    Great Experience


    My husband and I had a great experience at the Vagabond Inn in San Pedro. It was easy to find, the staff were friendly, the room was clean and well furbished, we had a nice view of the harbour and they let us park our car there free for a week while we were on a cruise. We would highly recommend this Inn.



    We requested a non-smoking room and got a room that smelled like a wet ash try. The tent card on the table said "this is a non-smoking room" but seemed to be placed there to disguise a room that had previously been used as a cigarette smokers haven. It smelled so disgusting our clothes in our suitcase and our pillows had the odor when we returned home after a two night stay. We had to leave early Sunday morning to drive to Reno and left a wake-up call for 5:00 am. It was daylight savings time at 2:00 am that morning and they failed to adjust their clocks so we did not get our wake up call as planned. The furniture in the room is detereorating and the carpet has cigarette burns and stains in it. It was not a pleasant place to take our two small children to call "home" while we visited San Pedro. The advertised "heated pool" was cold and the continental breakfast was a sorry attempt at offering guests a perk. We will be writing to the headquarters directly to complain and maybe even the better business bureau. They'd have to run a much more customer friendly business to ever get us to consider staying again.

    ... out free CD’s of their music to try and get their name out there, it was a good vibe going on down this boulevard.

    It’s lunchtime and we decide to have a quick bite to eat along the boulevard. We walked in and out of a few shops, got a few photos with our favourite stars name’s and headed back towards the car. I wanted to go and see Beverley hills as I know this is where all the celebrities live and the houses ...

Apparently, he thought the flight had beds in first class and was sorely disappointed to find that this flight to Newark, unlike the one to JFK, did not. We heard him going on and on about how he needed a bed, he needed rest, he couldn't go to work without sleeping in a bed. Next as I am boarding and enter the plane, this man is coming up the ...
