Great stay for the orbitz price. Wouldn't pay full price without complaints

Staff was very pleasant st check-in and check-out. The room was very clean and comfortable, but the fan in the air handler for the room got a little noisy when set on Auto, so took a little more effort to get a good temp setting when set on Heat. Still overall a very nice stay.

I CANNOT believe I paid $153 for tonight's experience! Here's what you can get for $153 on Orbitz: *Arrive at hotel to find it locked. *Have receptionist make rude, angry gestures at you when you approach the window, then continue laughing, high-fiving, and chatting with the guy she's with while a line of patrons continues to grow at the door. *When she finally comes to the door, she begins yelling at you for NO reason--to such an extreme that other clients tried to intervene and one couple with a reservation left. *Get warned by multiple customers about the dirty rooms, non-functioning doors, lack of towels, and other problems. *Spend an hour with the new receptionist and MANY calls to Orbitz trying to find the reservation. Orbitz says they will email and fax it to the hotel; neither ever happens. *The receptionist finally gives up and just assigns a room--the only problem is that when you open the door, it's already occupied! *The receptionist has you tour the ENTIRE property checking for empty rooms--evidently they have no idea which rooms they've already assigned, so we have to see which ones have lights on. *Be told there are actually no empty rooms. *Spend 45 minutes on hold with Orbitz to be hung up on; he never calls back even though he took your number and this is about the 6th call...not counting the 6 to the receptionist. * Finally, after 3 hours, at nearly 3 a.m., and MANY frustrating phone calls with people who can't seem to grasp the basics of the situation, ge

the towels and wash cloths were dirty the tub had cigarette burns on it the heat didn't get hot didn't sleep go bed was uncomfortable

I will never stay here again and I should be refunded as much as the entire cost for the stress that was caused

The hotel was very nice, everything .matched to my expectations

The room was comfortable and clean. The location is close to restaurants.

Room was very clean, internet worked perfectly, water was hot

Beyond expectations and a lot better than others on the same street.

The only pros I can think of is the front desk staff were all very nice and the location was not bad. It was near lots of restaurants and only 10 miles from the beach. Once in the room we found a light dusting of white powder on 3 different areas of the dark carpet. I think it was carpet fresh, so that would indicate the room wasn't vacuumed well. We wanted coffee, opened the little single cup coffee maker and there was a used filter in the maker. I have no idea how long it had been since that had been checked. No where to hang anything. It appeared the rack that was once in the wall had been taken out. The reservation was for two people there was 1 towel, 2 hand towels and no wash clothes. Called lobby about towels and coffee maker, was told that someone would be up with them. Called after waiting for some time was told they didn't have anyone that could bring up what we needed, but we could come down and get the items.

I've stayed here before and never had a complaint the staff are very helpful and polite especially the maid. Great value if you are on a budget. The online price was higher than what the hotel price actually was but because the staff was so nice I didn't even bring that to their attention.

Cleaner than I had expected and once again, staff and housekeeping where curtious and friendly!

The room was clean and tidy. The bed was comfortable. It is nice that they have upgraded to flat screen televisions

Quiet, clean relaxing motel for the price. Staff was courteous and friendly.

Quiet, relaxing, and clean. Staff was courteous and friendly.

Love the Magnuson. Couldn't get the WiFi to work, other than that, excellent as usual.

Awesome room great price great service..... But the WiFi. I can never seem to get it to work unless I'm in the business suite

It was soooooooooooooo faaaaaaaar from everything.

What a dump! I had reservations and when we pulled up, we left immediately. We looked in the front door and there was riff raff hanging around the front desk chatting it up with the staff. It looks like they let homeless people stay here...GROSS!

After a mix up with the booking and a long drive I was very stressed upon arrival. The staff went above beyond to resolve my frazzled state and my vacation began like it should, relaxed. So you know my background I'm not into 5 star resorts rather just a roof over my head while I vacation and this hotel exceeded my expectations and turned out to be a great value.
