Accommodations Review:

This hotel has potential, but is still undergoing renovations. The week I was there it just changed from the Anaheim Plaza Hotel to the Vagabond Plaza Inn. It will be interesting to see if the new ownership improves the hotel quality. It wasn't bad, but could definitely be better. There is a large lobby and ample parking for guests (but you weren't required to give your vehicle information). The rooms were clean, but a bit worn. The hotel is at least 35 years old and has some plumbing challenges. My room did not have any hot water during busy bathing hours. In fact, I never really had hot water both days I stayed there. But I didn't hear anyone else complaining. The manager did give me a 30% discount as a result. The rooms were large. I had a room with a King bed. The room had a terrace which was nice, but I never used it. I think all rooms have terraces, but not sure. The newly renovated rooms offer refrigerators, new TV's and air conditioners. Unfortunately I was in an old room which had an old TV. that barely got reception and an air conditioner that made the room comfortable, but never cold. I also did not receive the benefit of a refrigerator. All the rooms around me seemed to have one, but they also were rooms with 2 double beds vs. my 1 King. The best part of the hotel was definitely the pool. It was huge! I remember the sign said that the pool capacity was 160 people. And it very clean and warm. You could get towels in the large pool area and there were also ample loungers and tables with umbrellas and chairs. My daughter and I really enjoyed our time at the pool. There was also a 6 person hot tub. The facility also had a game room with about 15 - 20 video machines. Next to the game room was a coin operated laundry room for guest use. There was a pool table in the hotel lobby for guest use. Also provided in the lobby was ample tourist information and a gift shop that was very affordable and offered a great selection of souvenir items as well as your basic toiletries.

Pool Description/Comments:

The best part of the hotel was definitely the pool. It was huge! I remember the sign said that the pool capacity was 160 people. And it very clean and warm. You could get towels in the large pool area and there were also ample loungers and tables with umbrellas and chairs. My daughter and I really enjoyed our time at the pool. There were never more than 10 guests at the pool while we were there in the middle of the day. There was also a 6 person hot tub.

Other Comments:

The hotel has a lot of potential. I would try it again next time, but I'd be sure to request a newly renovated room and a fridge. I'd stay there again just for the pool.
