Magnuson Hotel Lincoln Airport

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Traveling cross country and looking for a quick place to crash so the price was right. But, the hotel was not great. Pool closed, dudes hanging outside in parking lot, lots of maintenance rooms open in hallway and stuff happening. Room wasn't clean and bathroom light didn't work. Overall sketchy. Stayed in a HOJO in MN and it was the best so we thought we'd do it again.

Bed was comfortable, hotel/room was clean, staff was friendly.

The shower head was like a Waterpik and only have three strains there was exposed wires and one of the lights Had spiderwebs around the lights all along it was a little rough around the edges but quiet mostly clean and good staff

Great location. Very accommodating staff. The continental breakfast was good. Everything was perfect for the money charged.

There are better options in the area for about the same price. Room AC broke, leaks on the lobby after a storm.

You get exactly what you pay for. A fine experience for the night.

The internet connection doesn't work very well sometimes. We had a non-smoking room but it did smell of cigarettes. The staff was very nice.

At first when check-in the front desk person was nice. We got to the room the hotel was outdated and smelled like a nursing home. Both of the beds were very uncomfortable and one of them had dark stains on the sheets. The air conditioner was loud and would rattle when it was running. Called the front desk to ask a question and she was extremely rude. Would not stay her again.

Staff was attentive and professional, room was immaculate and comfortable, breakfast was great. Will definitely stay here again.

Room was fine and the lighting was exceptionlly good. Breakfast was standard. Location was great. Staff most helpful.

I never checked for dust or grime, but it seemed clean to me, and didn't smell bad. A little noisy (refrigerator and upstairs neighbors), but could still sleep. Feels like a safe, friendly location. Does have microwave, too. T.V. and remote very basic. Not exciting, but meets basic needs well.

Overall it was pleasant. The help at the hotel were very helpful and pleasant . The rooms were very small and there was no tub. We stayed for 5 days and did not have a dresser to put our close in. This place would have been fine for a night or two. I must say the beds were very comfortable. For a longer stay I think a closet with more hangers would be nice. We actually did not have a closet. Like I said before , it's fine for a short stay.

Just needed a place to sleep and didn't want to spend alot. This did that job nicely. Had good free breakfast. Nice pleasant stay.

I returned from Yellowstone to Columbus. This hotel has good facility. Very big room. But, one of the rooms has a bad A/C. Smoke came out of it when you want to heat up. The smoke enactive the detector which made me panic. All other stuffs are really good.

So so poor continental breakfast selection. Pool not functional

Just traveling through. Close to freeway so convenient for stopping. Staff very friendly and helpful. Room was clean and bed was comfortable.

Basic, functional, clean. Parking slightly inconvenient. Wifi signal too weak to be functional, even in the lobby. Extremely minimal breakfast

This wasn't a bad little stop. Everything was clean and spacious. We weren't expecting a frig in the room, so that was an added bonus to be able to take leftovers back to the hotel. The staff was friendly and the location wasn't shady, if that makes sense. It was $44 for a night. If you're looking for romance or a five star stay, this is not it for you. However, if you're looking for a nice hotel to sleep at with no hassles or really gross looking rooms, after spending the day in Lincoln- this is great. The breakfast is cereal and bagels, it's a free breakfast what can I say? However, cheap and variety food owned by a local family can be found .07 miles at "Great Scotts". Google it, it 's the oddest thing I've seen, but my husband and I loved it after 10 hours of driving to Lincoln, NE from Dallas, TX. You can also go in to town for "The Egg & I" which is what we did the second day. This hotel rates above Motel 8 or any of the other hotels I've seen for $39 and etc. It was great, pleasant, clean and cheap.

BUSINESS, CONVENIENT. QUICK TRIP.FROM COLORADO. ONE NIGHT. BUSINESS MEETINGS.

Lincoln is the halfway point to Moab from Michigan, good place to stop. The hotel was clean, staff was pleasant. Good value, would stay again.

There are better options in the area for about the same price. Room AC broke, leaks on the lobby after a storm.
