... studio still had the same 'feel' to it, almost like you were walking through the studio backlot 50 years ago. The studio tour itself still takes you through the earthquake simulator and passed the Jaws lake, but thrown in to the mix is the 3D King Kong vs the dinosaurs experience, and of course, the obligatory visit to Wisteria Lane.
After the tour we took on the various rides, the first being Jurassic Park. They give you fair ...
... desperate need if a shower but of course my room wasn't ready so I had to entertain myself for another 5 hours. I was resting on a chair when one of the staff came up and said, "Ma'am ?! Ma'am ?! You can't sleep here..." I hadn't intended on sleeping but I was too tired to keep my eyes open. When I woke I looked at the time hoping it was time to check in, but sadly it was only 8am !! In the end ...
... we settled down in Morro Rock, a town with, you guessed it, a gigantic famous rock, for a nights kip. The next day we headed through stunningly set towns such as Carmel and made our way to Santa Cruz, about 45 minutes south though we had to stop at a roadside farm outlet that had crazy deals on fruit! $1 for 7 corn on the cobs, $2 for 7 grape fruits, you get the drift, fantastic deals for families of 7! We were heading to Santa Cruz to meet up with a guy we met a few weeks back in ...
... Union station itself is an interesting place.It looks like a church which has been transformed into a transport hub where you can catch several buses and trains overground and under. I soon was on the metro and on my way to Hollywood.The hostel is literally straight across the road from Hollywood/highlands metro station and I came out the station onto the walk of fame with people dressed up,street performers and flashing bright lights everywhere.Welcome ...
... purchased sunscreen, not that you need it over there really but felt like it was burning. We found a cool shopping strip and blown away at the wealth of America. Shane fell asleep on ride home. We found a open air 3 storey arcade and had American pizza for dinner. Made my first purchase at Victoria's Secret - again Shane didn't seem to mind waiting for me to finish ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Vagabond Inn San Pedro Los Angeles
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.
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.
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.
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.
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)
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 .
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.
