One night on business

I had one extra night to finish off a biz trip and decided to try the Magnuson. It's a well kept old vintage hotel/motel on the bay. Nice little beach area, a couple of pool choices, a bar on the beach... reasonable price. It is an old place so if your neighbors are noisy, you will hear it. But I would stay here again!

Filth

This hotel should have 1 or 2 stars. It was filthy and hadn't been cleaned well.

Great Christmas Get Away

Our first time in Florida. The staff was courteous, friendly and told us about local attractions and one of a kind places to eat. Although we were disappointed that this hotel wasn't on the beach, we were able to find several beaches to walk and enjoy. The weather wasn't beach weather anyway! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Although this is an older resort, the staff definitely works hard to make your stay enjoyable and everything you are looking for!

Fine, cheap option

Pretty much what it looks like. Don't get excited about the beach.

Good value and location for the money.

Nice location. Very nice staff. Hotel is older, but grounds are nice. Restaurant is good and beach bar is very nice. Only problem experienced were a few tiny ants in our room.
