This hotel experience was the worst I've ever had. I dont ever write reviews but felt compelled to warn people not to spend their hard earned money to stay here. We waited at the so called lobby for 15 minutes waiting to be checked in.....nobody was around.... We had no fresh towels or maid service of any kind the whole time we were there...even though we asked politely twice. It was noisy and run down and 1 staff member was extremely rude. But the worst thing was how maintenance unclogged a sewer drain at the back of the hotel (right where we had to walk to get to our car) and LEFT IT laying all over the sidewalk and parking lot!!!!!! For 4 days we looked at that and it was still there when we left. Absolutely disgusting. I will spare you the details but i have photos. Please print this review so people can be warned!!!

Love love loved my stay here. Staff was very nice and helpful. I have to say from the outside looks like a trap motel but when i stepped foot inside and saw how pleasant and peaceful and the bird cage and the water fountain I knew i made a good decision going there. Will visit again!

They are remodeling the pool and a couple other areas however it was still a great place to stay. The breakfast was good. There is a swinging bench that my kids enjoyed sitting on and looking at the birds in the cage. Would absolutely stay again!

I'm afraid my impression was adversely impacted by the fact that much of the property was undergoing construction at the time of my stay. Even though the front desk assured me the work projects were a good distance from my room, they were not. :-( I think under better circumstances the Magnuson would be a fair bargain for the cost.

It is an older facility but very clean and well kept. Breakfast was okay, not the best I ever had but not the worst either. It was convenient to lots of eating places. I love the retro feel of the place. Everyone was very friendly and helpful.
