Franchise Opportunities Available

As you know, timing is everything in the Hotel Business, as in life.  At Vagabond Inn, we believe the time is now.    In 1958, we opened the doors to the first Vagabond Inn in San Diego, CA. The entrepreneurial spirit which drove the founders of Vagabond Inn to launch that first hotel is alive and well, and is what pushes us now to be a strong Regional Brand in the western United States.  Our roots are firmly grounded in California, but our brand’s equity has currency in the West; from Texas to Washington and all markets in-between.

Technology and demographics are changing rapidly and we feel that a brand must to be nimble to keep up with this shifting landscape.  By focusing on our region only (and not the entire country) we can better deliver room nights to our franchise locations.  Because we own several of the Vagabond Inns ourselves, we can provide operational support which will help our franchisees to bring more dollars to their bottom line.  We also offer support in Revenue and Reputation Management, Sales and Marketing, and Design at no additional cost; we can do this because we don’t have the high overheads like of some of the “so called” national chains.   Our PIPs are simple and focus on guest impact amenities like big LCD TVs, triple sheet bedding, and fast internet, and because we don’t have multiple brands to support our Areas of Protection are wide open.

Support and Services

We offer the following support and services to all our hotels at no additional cost. Receive revenue management help, design ideas, reputation strategy, personalized marketing, and ongoing training just for being a Vagabond Inn.
