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.

Spur of the moment

Unfortunately the first two rooms that were given to me were not acceptable, but the third one was perfect. The staff was very nice and apologized for the mix ups.

Anniversary/Birthday

The accommodations were fabulous! We had a spacious, clean, quiet room in a hotel that is perfectly located to anything a traveler could want. A very courteous, professional staff and management team went out of their way to meet our requests. This was our second trip to the Magnuson Hotel, and we will most definitely choose it again for our return trips to the area. Likewise, we will not fail to recommend it to our friends.

Nice local hotel

I had a very early (5AM) flight out of PHF, and I live far enough from the airport that it was worth staying the night. It was close to the airport, and also close to Jefferson Ave (main drag). I didn't use the pool or gym, but they looked nice. Checking in was smooth, and the staff was very friendly. Importantly, the wake up call was on time, and they even called my room to recommend a good cab driver. The room was clean, and there were plenty of towels. Good cable TV selection.

Nice Staff

I have stayed here a couple of times now to visit my kid at CNU. Every stay has been delightful. Friendly front staff and the rooms have always been clean and comfortable. The rooms show a little age but are still comfortable. The only downside is that the restaurant is under renovation and you have to leave the hotel grounds to get dinner.

Nightlife tip: In Hotel

Lounge folks are super friendly. I guess now is the off season so there was not a lot of people in the lounge. Can't beat the friendly bartenders though.

Nice even though

The room was excellent. It was clean, comfortable, with a nice view. Wifi and wired high speed internet worked better than at other hotels I have visited. The restaurant was under renovation so I had to drop the star by one. The refrigerator was big enough to store 2 liter and larger bottles with shelf space for other items. A beautiful indoor pool and nice gym. I will go there again!!!
