Visiting

Would not recommend Fri, Oct 9, 2015
It was the worse place I have ever stayed. First, I could find the place because they did not have a sign. It was still Travelodge....not Magnuson. When I checked in, the receptionist was out smoking. When we got the key to the room, the bed caved in. We asked to change a room. It was still dirty with a wet towel in the tub. The carpet was dirty and had a terrible smell. The air-condition had only one setting with a marker writing warning us not to change it. It was freezing cold. The bed cover was an abomination and filthy. I slept in the cold because I won't dare to touch the bed cover. This place should be condemned.

Got what I paid for..

Would recommend Tue, Sep 29, 2015
We arrived for a 3 night stay. Check in was a breeze. The room was clean although outdated and certainly needed upgrades. The hotel had been sold several times. New owners had yet to purchase enough towels. But that wasn't a huge deal for us as we had plenty of beach towels. The breakfast was definitely minimal. Cereal, juice, oatmeal, toast and coffee. But, it got us on our way to the beach. For those of you wanting a place to just shower and sleep, as we did, this is an okay hotel for that. If you're wanting amenities, new decor, and super comfort don't stay here. The cost for three nights at this hotel was that of one night at a nice one. And as you spend most of your time on the beach why waste the money?!

This hotel is VERY old and you can tell the moment you walk in the rooms. The front desk staff went out of their way to help me get checked in early but other than that, it was just a place to lay my head. The rooms are old, smell of mildew, and are generally run down. I will not pick this hotel again.

This is a great hotel for the price. It's seconds from restaurants and only a few minutes from beach. Staff is super friendly and helpful.

Worst Hotel Ever!!!

Would not recommend Tue, May 12, 2015
From check in to check out this was the absolute worst motel experience. I had paid online when booking and they charged me again when I checked in. The Managers told me that that the double charge could not have happened because they were requesting their payment from the booking company. I assured them that it could and did happen. After over an hour of complaining to different Managers, I was finally credited. We had to beg for towels and pillowcases. Finally got 2 towels at 11 PM after going to the desk multiple times. Did not get pillowcases on the first day so we put our shirts over the pillows. The room was nasty. The parking lot was not well lit. Terrible experience!!

Convenient Hotel for concerts at The Wharf

Would recommend Fri, Apr 24, 2015
The hotel was very convenient to The Wharf where I attended a concert. Spring breakers had been hard on the room the nights before so the maids were still cleaning when I arrived late in the afternoon. However, the hotel staff did all they could to courteously accommodate me.

Good for cheap

Would recommend Mon, Sep 22, 2014
It wasn't that bad of a place for a little weekend getaway. We slept there two nights and spent all day on the beach and all night out so we really weren't there that much at all. It was perfect for the price and us not being there. However, the ice machine was broken and there were no hand towels in the room and a dirty towel left for us to use. But other than that it was fine.

Obviously old and needs renovating!

Would not recommend Fri, Jun 20, 2014
The room reaked mildew. It made me sick to go in there. The bed was dirty looking. The sheets were old and looked like they have been washed a trillion times. I rode around for ten minutes looking for the hotel, because the name is not Magnuson, it's the Travelodge. It was a bad experience. I wanted my money back, but I said whatever!
