Not a 3 star hotel

Upon arriving at the hotel it look like a senior home which in the lobby looked to older people watching a movie. They say they remodeled the place but it did not look to be &prove me right when I entered the room...the pull out couch was broke &the room did not feel homey it look like a motel where the older people would go because they get good pricing on the golf the only update was the flat screen tv. This was not a place I wanted to spend my Anniversary so we immediately found a new hotel. When I tried to get a refund I was told that I already checked in so I couldn't get my money back I never even stayed there they kept giving me the run around. The hotel also had a bad smell. When you think of Grand you think luxury but on the outside and inside this hotel look run down. Thats sad that this hotel calls itself the best in Madison.

Under Construction

The hotel stunk of paint and was all torn up. Hopefully the upgrades will take it out of the 80's. Staff was fine but the hotel is currently not worth the price. It would be nice if the current status of the hotel was displayed on The site.

Overall, I was very satisfied with my stay at the hotel. It is older, but it looks like they are beginning the remodeling process. I was very happy with my stay.

Good Stop Over

We needed a halfway stop before getting on a plane in Chicage. Easy access from interstate. Got to swim, clean up, sleep and eat breakfast. Good stop over.

We would stay at the Grand Magnuson again...good choice on a budget

The front desk staff was friendly and helpful. The room was clean and comfortable, except for smelling like smokers had lived there...even though it was a non-smoking room. The cost of the room was pretty good for the area. Furniture in rooms was scratched, dated, and long overdue for replacement. Curtains were torn, and stained. However, all of those things can be overlooked if the cleanliness and price are main considerations.

Everything is good except I was double charged

Hot tub is good. Room is really clean. Staff are very friendly. I made this reservation and paid online. However, when I got there, a lady told me when I made the reservation online, I chose to paid at the hotel which I didnt think i see that part online. So I swiped my credit card and pay again. After I was back I checked my bill. I was charged both by online and the hotel.
