Not what was advertised

Location is surrounded by Bail Bondsman offices. Breakfast was not offered, in spite of the advertising of breakfast included. Check in was through a plate glass window outside the locked doors. Does that say something about the location? The pool was still covered in the middle of May in Georgia. Will it ever open?

Not what is advertized

It says breakfast included, but nothing is offered. There are coffee packets in the room, but no coffee maker. The pool is still covered, even though its mid-May in Georgia. And the view is nothing but Bail Bondsman offices.

Great location right off the highway. Rooms could have been cleaner. Staff was friendly. Great for a good nights rest when you are traveling.

Good Value

The room was very comfortable and clean and we had a good stay. However, I think the hotel description is for something else because it is not on the shore of a lake or near a state park. The location was ideal for our needs, though.

**MUST READ THIS!!!** Accused of Lying?!?!

Ok, I must start by saying that I am the kind of person that LOVES giving positive feedback in a negative world, so this negative experience had to have been an extra disappointment to warrant my valuable time on a site like this.... When arriving to the Magnusson, I waited in the lobby for almost 10minutes for someone to come help me (this is no exaggeration). I must mention the STENCH of the lobby was horrendous. It was somewhere between a non-ventilated bathroom and an old-man's breath who smoked most of his life... The only life I could see at the 'hotel' was a party of what looked like the 'owners' and their family outside. Finally when someone came in to help me, I was disappointed to find that she didn't speak much English. We forged ahead however. When getting my family and I checked in, I asked if there were any 'suites' that we could upgrade to and the lady appeared to offer a yes somewhere in the confusing communication we were having. So I took her up on the offer. It was only a few moments later that a man took her place to continue helping me. Within a minute of him 'helping' me, he asked why I lied? Now this man spoke perfectly good english. So there was no mis-communication in his question. I was completely caught off-guard. He point blank asked me directly, 'Why did you lie to her?'. I asked him what exactly he meant by that?? Apparently the first lady didn't make the connection that my family and I already had a reservation, so I suppose he somehow thought I was trying to take advantage of her, but I have no idea just how that could be... He asked me 2 more times why I lied and at that point I was livid. I let him have it and to make matters worse, he did this in front of another customer that was awaiting their turn for 'service'. After letting him know what I thought about his accusation, he told me to 'get out'. I would have just walked out, but he amplified matters even more by kicking out a paying customer that just wanted to get his children and wife some rest during a family vacation. Not only would I not recommend this place, but it certainly is a scar in our minds now about the city of Lawrenceville as it is our sole experience there. BEWARE!!!

never again

This hotel was roach infested. The side door would not close on its own. Which posed a safety threat.

Cheap place to stay

I was working locally so I just needed a place to sleep. The room was clean and the bet was comfortable. The only complaint I had was about 10 minutes after going to be I could hear mice chewing on something. I spoke with the manager when I checked out who said he would call the exterminator immediately.
