Smell, Noise, "Shady"

The front desk staff was very nice, but there was old food in the hall, and garbage when we checked in after 9pm. The bedroom looked nice but the sheets had stains and overall the room smelled... musty? smokey? dirty? I was happy that we had been tailgating all day and that I was exhausted. There was yelling in the hall at different points of the night and people were just "hanging around" outside and in the parking lot when we went out to grab a sandwich. I stayed here before a few years ago when it was under different ownership and it was really nice. That is no longer the case. Would not stay here again or recommend it to a friend. Not bad enough to complain to the front desk, but I was happy to check out.

Room large and very worth the price. Location was excellent between Hampton and Newport News Mall.

The Magnus hotel is located half way between Hampton and the Newport News Mall. The rooms are spacious and beds are comfortable. They are currently remodeling the bar area and from what I could see it will be very nice. Worth the value.

Strange Situation

This hotel seems to be between managers, there is an incredible price when we booked, but the restaurant was closed, and clientel was strange, like locals who were booking short term stays.

well worth your time

I had a great time at this particular hotel.The hotel staff was knowledgeable,helpful, and courteous. There was an indoor pool that was actually fabulous.My comfort level and feeling at ease was definitely well worth the time and money that it took into booking this particular hotel.Compared to my other hotel stays at other places I do believe that this hotel was far beyond and above most hotels stays.The only thing missing from this stay was that the restaurant was under renovation and I was not able to get my meals within the hotel. By and large,the hotel experience was definitely 4.8 stars!

5 minutes from CNU

I have stayed here a couple of times now. The staff has always been friendly and the rooms have been nice. The rooms show some age but the comfort is still there. I have no trouble sleeping. Only downside is on this trip there was no restaurant or lounge on site. Due to be renovated was the word. I walked about 5 blocks down to Toby Keiths bar for dinner and a brew. I would have preferred staying on site though. Also a place called Salsa's was about 4 blocks away.

I considered it a short walk but 5 blocks may be long to some people. Toby Keith's bar and Salsa's

Great place with surprising price

Hotel itself was nice. I like location because it wasn't right off the main road like a lot of the other hotels were, so didn't hear any traffic noise which was nice. Planning on staying there again once I decide to go up there again.
