The "Inn" is just a very cheap motel that looks nothing like the pictures. Kudos to the photographer, they were able to make it look like a decent hotel whereas it's actually filthy motel.
We arrived and the motel was under construction/renovation. Construction starts at 8am (!). Lobby staff was a young girl - friendly but she has no clue and no authority. When I first called she answered the phone and said "Anthony?". She was obviously waiting for a phone call. I thought I had dialed a wrong number.
The room was a "non-smoking" room but obviously had had a LOT of smoking inside, it smelled terrible.
We asked for a refund and checked out immediately - it was denied because "expedia booking" and Hotels.com don't care. We got ripped off $200.
The model is surrounded by industrial-type parking lots and mechanics. Enjoy the view.
We had dinner with friends later that night. They told us "Oh no Vagabond Inn?! it's the type of motel where you book for an hour... if you know what I mean". We didn't verify that claim... but would not be surprised.
As we were leaving, one guest was blasting music from his room with the door open.
Staff were really friendly & helpful. Room & bathroom were clean & bed was comfirtable. Right next to Denny’s so easy to go eat with 20% discount showing room key. Nothing glamorous but good value for money.
