Magnuson Hotel Baton Rouge

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Rundown hotel with questionable surroundings. Spend money for better. The room had bad smoke odor which led to an intense headache, the sheets were dirty, the shower was dirty...just bad bad bad..avoid at all costs. Sleep in your car if you must.

We could not get extra towels. Free breakfast food was taken away 15 minutes early. Pool was always crowded with unsavory people.

The hotel holds a somewhat good value for the money. However, I was quite disappointed about getting my kids all geared up & excited to go swimming, to find the pool inconveniently closed, then on what turned out to be a beautiful and comfortable day too!

There was an issue with the reservation that was very frustrating and inconvenient. However, the front desk was helpful in assisting with resolving the issue, and kept me updated and informed when everything had been resolved. I really appreciated their help and assistance, which displayed customer satisfaction and appreciation.

The stay was peaceful, and the staff were diligent in willingness to accommodate in order to represent a positive customer satisfaction effort, which seems to be an area alot of businesses appear to be slacking on more often these days

This hotel needs to be shut down. The room was dirty with holes "more then one" in the walls. Bathroom just a little bigger then airplane restrooms.

NASTY, NASTY, The beds were nasty and stains on the sheets and the toilet had a used condom in it. The floor had pet stains. The fridge was not clean and the microwave wasn't either.

Hotel was ok but alot of people hanging out late at night

The actual room was okay, it actually had a mini fridge and microwave, but the comforter had cigarette burns on it, and the holder for the toilet paper roll kept falling out of the wall. The other tenants were fairly loud and a little sketchy.

Place is clean and appears to be safe, good value for the money.

You get what you expect: Near to I-12, but quite. Rooms clean and cozy. Friendly staff. Fridge, Ice machine. Free Wi-Fi worked well. Small breakfast, but it was o.k.

Honestly, you can not expect more for the price. Everything is good and ok for this hotel. Location is perfect and even though the price could be a little cheaper, it is still good. Recommended unless you are a high profile executive...

The room was a small room/suite which seem to be kept very clean and was comfortable enough for 1 person.

family fun at chuck e cheese & celebration station. the kids had a ball along with the grown ones.

I have stayed in a motel/hotel/crusie room 53 times since Jan 1, 2010 in and out of the US. This is the worst experience, the inside and outside was filty: cigarett butts in the front door, rooms dirty, entrance filty. Next door right out side the rooms, a playground, batting cages and go karts. So loud that I could not even hear the TV plus trying to sleep. Front desk clerk unconcerned, stated the gokarts would close "10-11-12 whatever". It was still going at 12:30. We should have been informed at check in or given a different room. [...] Will never go back to this motel.

Very poor, beside the fact that not only the room was dirty, the grounds and registration area was dirty with paper on the floor and the entrance was extremely trasy. The room faced a playground area where there was go carts, batting cages, etc. The noise from the gokarts was so loud, we could not sleep or even listen to TV. (we should have been informed about this situation). When the front desk was asked about this, she was unconcered for me and when asked what time it closed, I was told 10 - 11- 12, whatever( it closes at 12:30AM.) Also, when I check in I requested a receipt, the cashier stated that I was with [...] so she could not give me one that I would just have to get it from [...]. I will never stay there again. Very poor experience.

Just what I was looking for! Good location for a great price!

Visiting family On arrive I was attended in the evenning thru a samll window with a small oppening not well lit "for security reason"I was a University Proffesor and never experience that.Apparently there was only one young girl taking care of a Motel with more than 150 rooms.When I needed housekeeping in the evenning I got no satisfactory answer.Nedd more staff

I was going to a conference in Baton Rouge and I stayed outside of the city center to save a significant amount of money. Hotel was average besides that fact that my car had expletives scribbles all over the hood with a magic marker when I woke up in the morning. There were many high school kids staying there that night after a football game and I assume it must have been a drunken game for them. The hotel staff seemed disinterested by my complaint.

Hotel was located conveniently right off the Highway, in what seemed to be the center of town. It was easy to get almost anywhere.

awesome monetary value, but disappointing quality time, unnecessarily lost.
