I took buses from Long Beach Airport, and got to the hotel at about 11am. I expected I wouldn't have a room for a couple of hours, but I immediately got my room on the 3rd floor, front, facing the harbor and the Martime Museum.
The staff was courteous and gave me information on restaurants in the immediate area, made reservations for me for the shuttle to my ship for Sunday, and gave directions to the breakfast room. The continental breakfast was just right, with coffee, juice, rolls, toast and a nice lady making sure it was running smoothly.
The ride to the ship left the hotel on time, and the driver really helped with luggage and getting us to the right place.
The staff is outstanding, nice, and all around wonderful. I have stayed at the Vagabond at least 4 times now, (once when my brother was in a terrible motorcycle accident) and EVERY time it has been a pleasure. It is safe, the stafff is great and it will overall be what you make it... I would reccomend the VAGABOND with all my heart. I have read some reviews where people said it was loud, etc. I have never experienced that.
Tell them Tia sent you, lol.
