Magnuson Hotel Grace Inn

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The rooms are so dirty that you don't even want to turn the lights on. There was blood found on a pillow in one persons room, slimy stuff smeared on the wall in another and food left in the fridge. The end table lamp didn't work as the bulb was broken off and the shower didn't drain.

This is the second time we have stopped overnight there--it hasn't improved in a year. If anything, it is worse. I didn't bathe or even shower because the tub was dirty I didn't want to stand in it; carpets stained; flooring had gouged 1"x 2" with metal in the hole--right where you walked to the sink and bathroom; electrical outlet did not work, even though I unplugged a fan so one expect it would (phone uncharged in the morning); 12 cup coffee pot with regular small packages of coffee, fridge not cold and freezer iced up. AND this time it was a handicapped room--too crowded with furniture to navigate with a wheelchair. No, I will never stay there again and I suggest Trip Adviser no longer endorses Grace Inn.

I haven't stayed here since this property was known as the Good Knight Inn -- probably a good 15 years ago. Back then, the property was decent. My family and I, when passing through Quesnel, would often stay at the hotel. We liked the location. Now, skip ahead 15 years. The name of the hotel may have changed, but that's it. It doesn't seem like the owners (new ones?) care anymore: the rooms don't look like they've been updated in a couple of decades. Rooms are absolutely filthy -- staining on the floor; old beds with foam toppers on them; ancient air conditioner units; old tube TVs; filthy appliances; rusty/dirty bathrooms -- the list goes on. I was almost scared to lay down and go to sleep on the bed. I can't really think of anything positive to say about this place. Sure, you only pay $79 a night, which is cheap by today's standards, but even that price is too much to pay for what you get. If you find yourself in Quesnel, stay elsewhere! Strong recommendation to avoid!

The only thing positive about this place was the nice young man who checked us in. Otherwise the room was lousy. Wallpaper peeling off the walls, bathroom ceiling fan falling off, shower rod sagging precariously, old mattresses with a Walmart foam eggshell mattress topper (seriously????). The breakfast was better than expected given the lack of care the rest of the place gets. The pool was being repaired....I was told. There was lots of gravel in the drive in front of my room so every time a vehicle came through in the night it woke us up. The motel has a few full time residents who hang outside their rooms smoking. Its not a pretty place by any stretch. There are better values for the money in town.

We stayed this year during our annual trip to billy barker days and we thought we would give the grace inn one more chance since last year was not a great stay. We arrived we checked in and our room was dirty. The bathroom had dirty towels in it the floor the fridge and sink was dirty. We told the front desk and they came and tidied up. Upon the housekeeper cleaning she turned off the fridge which I never knew so when we came home later in the evening the floor was covered in water and our clothes were floating in the water. I had to take the time to clean the fridge and I am on holidays. The housekeepers were friendly they ask to extra cleaning and the owners say no they don't care about all things falling apart and the customer experience they only care about making money. The bathroom was falling apart in our room and just really run down. I was in the office and heard the housekeeper complaining about the water leaking from the roof in the laundry room and they said yah yah well get to it. I am sure the leak is still dripping. Next year we will stay elsewhere because a motel manager myself I care deeply about the customer experience and if the rooms are clean and acceptable.

We stayed here with a hockey team because of it's location to the Twin Arenas. The price was was cheap as well. However, nobody got a good sleep as we all slept on top of the bedding with our own blankets. Used jackets for pillows rather than daring to put our heads on their pillows. You get what you pay for. I will say that location wise, we all agreed it was quiet, we thought we'd hear trains running all the time, but only 1 parent heard a train once. The kids were able to pass a ball to each other in the parking lot in their between game times, which is great when you're in a place like Quesnel where they have nothing to do for kids. The front desk staff was pleasant to deal with. Accommodated the team for early breakfast by opening the breakfast room earlier than stated. To be able to have coffee, cereal or toast/bagel, was all we needed to get going. Until they do major renovations, I would not recommend staying here. If you do, bring your own blankets and pillows.

Walked in and there was foot print stains on the carpet, the fridge door was left open with a towel on the floor,the cabinet door was hanging by a thread,coffee maker was dirty,I could go on. We heard it was nice and remodeled but not even close! Just seemed...old.

Ants crawling all over the radiator in room. Relocated to another room and the bathtub was disgusting! Used, damp coffee package in the coffee pot- need I go on? This place should be taken off of your list of places to stay!!

The Motel was good but booking though you's there was no way to get Senors Rates... I asked when we got there and thay said yes there is but because i booked though you's guys they couldnt change it on my Visa. so i am very deapointed with your site ???

Would never stay here again, and because I booked through a booking agent I was outta luck! had to sleep on the sketcky uncomfy beds for 2 nights! The breaker blew when I tied to microwave my sons bottle while I watched tv. after one shower there was no hot water, and the tub filled up and wouldn't drain as you had a shower. the lobby was nice, I just wish they would put as much effort into the rooms.
