Great location and excellent value.
Pros: The property looks like it's been renovated recently, so everything is very clean. Bathroom was outstanding, lots of counter and shelf space, nice shower (no tub). Bed was very comfortable. Room had a fridge, microwave and coffee maker (old fashioned type, not a pod system). There was also a safe in the closet. Closet space was adequate, but could use more hangers. There was an iron and ironing board in the closet. There a nice sized nightstands on both sides of the bed, and there was an available wall plug at each side of the bed. The room had a desk with an easily accessible plug, and even had a place to plug in an ethernet cable for the internet, although they provide free Wifi, which worked well. Elevator access to upper floors is behind a key locked door (although stair access is completely open). Service is excellent, all of the people at the desk were very helpful and friendly. Free breakfast includes toast, bagels, muffins, some fruit, cook-you-own waffles, youhurt, cereal, juice and coffee. They have ample parking. Cons: Street noise and other guest noise was a bit loud at times. Air conditioning is rather loud and a bit drafty. They could use another chair in the room, there was only one. Floors are not carpeted, they're like faux-hardwood, so pack slippers if it's cold.

Just okay
Plus: The room (and especially the bathroom) was good size, and there was both a refrigerator and a microwave Minus: The only window was in the bathroom, the floors seemed dirty, it was a challenge figuring out the AC/heat, and the only protein at breakfast was hard-boiled eggs We understand they are refurbishing, so it may get better.

Good price for the stay
Good the outside needs some work but the rooms were very clean

Vagabond Inn Executive Pasadena
basic and clean
When you are booking this I think you should be expecting it to be pretty average, nothing special and clean. It is all of that. Check in was prompt and courteous. Our room was right next to the general entrance, vending machines, parking lot. Noisy with the main door slamming itself whenever anyone went in or out. Place completely booked and change of room not possible we were told. Other rooms probably better I would hope. Pool. Seemed to be plenty of parking.

Great room.
The rooms have been updated, but not the hallways, which are pretty shabby. But, I enjoyed my stay because the room was great and the staff was excellent. Good room for the price. I would definitely stay there again.
