Magnuson Hotel Opelika

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The hotel is very run down and in need of updating but the price is an indication of this. It did seem to be the best option for a low cost stay. The front desk was extremely friendly. Don't Plan on swimming because the pool is green! No blow dryer in the room which put Me in a panic since I didn't notice until I went to use it!

This is where I needed to be and staff helped immediately with minor issues. Unbeatable at the price.

Friendly staff, good continental breakfast, cheap for a quick stay but surprisingly pleasant experience

Things were good considering it is near a college and gets a lot of traffic people wise and usage. Older hotel.

Very helpful staff and I needed a quiet rest which I got...Thanks

This is a great value for staying close to the interstate for a short duration. The room comes with a refrigerator and microwave. Also, there's a continental breakfast included. The bathrooms are exceptionally clean - the rooms are moderately clean. Furnishings are adequate for one night or two. The one thing lacking on the top floors is the internet connectivity - they may need to add more routers. The staff is friendly and provide excellent service. If you're looking for a great value, this is the place to stay.

everything was great like always. very pleasant stay.

It was more than perfect for what we needed, a place to stay while in town for Luke Bryan concert. No complaints at all, could not have asked for a better location!

we got what we paid for. We will raise our standards on our next hotel stay.

In the area for the Auburn homecoming game. The staff was very friendly and the exterior was clean. Both rooms was upgraded free of charge. The rooms were clean sheets were fresh and the water was hot for every shower.

For the price, it could be said that it's fine. But honestly, no hotel over $20 a night should smell. The carpet should be replaced with laminate flooring and the beds and bedding need to be updated. There was no hot water in the shower and the tub drained slowly. If you just need a cheap place to sleep and don't mind a little residual smoke odor, then this place will do.

Overall decent for the price.

The Hotel it's self was fairly good and clean. [...]

This hotel was horrible. It smelled weird in the room, The hot water didn't work in the shower, and for some reason when I checked out the hotel had my room charged to someone else credit card so they couldn't give me a receipt. They blamed that on [...]. On top of all that I went down to the lobby to get some towels and the person at the desk checked someone into a room like mine for half the rate I had paid. Over all I would never Stay in a travel lodge again

Hotel is in excellent location to Auburn University, very easy access on and off interstate. Requested and recieved handicap room. While modifications for the handicap had been made, the bathroom was still tight and it needed handicap toilet (sits you higher). The bed was clean but the carpet needed work, just did not look as clean as desired. Refig was nice, just could not get it to really cool down drinks but I guess that is what the ice machines are for.

Good location, next to I-85 and a few restaurants. Clean room. nice hotel staff.

I have never been on a trip before but I think Travelodge was a very good first choice for a hotal and I would stay there again cause I loved it! I enjoyed watching Tv and swimming in the pool while I was there, I bet they had good breakfast but I didn't get up in time to eat breakfast opps oh well. There was nothing really missing I loved every minute of it.

The location was great, right down the road from where we had to be the next morning. I was disappointed that the pool was green and the ice machine was out of order but the area was quiet and the room was clean and the staff was friendly. the continental breakfast could use some help but can"t complain for a free breakfast.

The room was nice in 1960, since then the carpet has been burned several times, so much so that trying to walk over the 2 inch deep holes was difficult to say the least. My fiance' and myself were weary of taking off our shoes on the carpet because it looked dirty on top of the holes showing bare floor. besides that the walls were dirty, the corners of the room were havens for dead bugs, and i was so uncomfortable i didnt sleep and was ready to go at 9 am. I do not recommend this motel to anyone.

it is what the title says. its a room. not a great room, just a room. price was very reasonable. would only stay if there were no other rooms available.
