A great value in Pasadena and the San Gabriel Valley Oct 24, 2010
I choose the Vagabond Inn Pasadena to stay at during my Southern California trip because it was reasonably priced, but modern and upgraded. (Usually I will stay at one of major national chain hotels. But in Pasadena they were nearly twice the price of this property.)

Vagabond Inn is set up like a traditional motel. It has been recently remodeled and the rooms have new furnishings. I had a one King bed room. The bed nearly filled the width of the room and space was at a premium. It was just me, so it was fine. The bathroom fixtures were original, but clean and fine. The closet consisted of a clothes rack at one end of the long bathroom. Again, fine for my purposes. Amenities included a high-definition TV, fridge, and microwave.

Vagabond Inn ofers a complimentary breakfast each morning in a breakfast area off the lobby. Breakfast items include make-you-own waffles, bagles, cereal, yogurt, fruit, juice, and coffee and tea. (The breakfast makes the hotel even more of a bargain.) The hotel has an outdoor pool. One Internet workstaion is located in the lobby and has free printing. Rooms have wired Interent access.

Parking is free and I think most guests arrive by car. I did note some guests arrived by taxi from LAX (about $90 cab fare). Vagabond Inn is located on Colorado Blvd., the main street of Pasadena. However, it is not really located within walking distance of attractions. (CalTech is nearby.) For guests without a car, there is frequent Metro bus service along Colorado Blvd. that will connect with MetroRail. But, on balance, I think guests will need a car.

I stayed in Pasadena because it was central to the places I would visit on my tip. The Vagabond Inn location provided easy access to the 110, 134, and 210 Freeways.
