    Historical Traveler Reviews Vagabond Inn San Pedro Los Angeles

    Great location

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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!

    from

    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!

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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.

    Disgusted

    from

    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.

    ... FlyAway Bus that would take us to LAX. After queuing to buy the ticket we made the 5pm bus with minutes to spare. The drive to the LAX took about forty minutes, not bad considering it was rush hour and the freeways had five lanes of jammed traffic in each direction (we were in a bus lane for most of it). Check in and the shoes off, etc security routine one last time, then into the Air NZ lounge for a shower and a meal while waiting to ...

    ... I was pretty pleased with the facilities and how friendly the staff were so I did a good review. From my experience this would be a perfect place for a school group, because of the facilities and activities and the spacious room in the apartments.

    The survey was short and to the point, I handed that in with my room key and headed outside to my waiting taxi. I got off at the Los Angeles International ...

    ... out twenty bucks just to use the camp's sewer. Every RV or caravan collects waste in the form of "black water" (septic) and "grey water" (kitchen/bathroom). Before you roll onto greener pastures both tanks must be dumped. Sites that offer full hook-up don't charge dumping fees because the rig is already connected to the sewer. Partial hook-up, as with Fernwood, charge a levy or fee to dump your grey and septic waste at a central spot. It's usually twenty bucks ...

    ... vehicle" (we check) "Ok, what brand is it" "Err.. Do you mean like the company we booked it with?" "Nevermind. Full hook up?" "Yes." (On leaving, to each other) "What's full hook up?" We learnt that full hook up is the expensive option meaning the electricity, water and sewage is all essentially 'plugged in' and that, after one day, we hadn't needed it at all. Naturally, we didn't remember which tube went where or which way round or how they attached. Nor did we ...

    ... a lot of stars names so that was fine by me! For those of you who haven't visited Hollywood... It's actually not a very nice suburb. TV makes it out to be better than it is. We had fun walking through all the souvenir shops though. We saw quite a bit of poverty which is just really sad. I'm glad I've seen Hollywood now but it's not somewhere I would go again by choice. Beverly Hills seems to be the only suburb which I feel slightly more relaxed ...
