Inauspicious looking place from the outside turned out to be a gem from within. Basic motel configuration around a central courtyard. Rooms were large, comfortable and very clean and neat. Quite a number of commercial vehicles here suggesting that it has a good reputation. My room was excellent. The associated Thai restaurant was a delightful bonus. Food was delightful and... More

The building seemed old but looks like it's been knewly renovated. The staff was friendly and helpful. One queen room where we'd stayed in was very clean and I was very comfortable. Loved stay at this hotel. Especially hardwood floor, wall hanging TV, Keurig coffee maker and good wifi signal. Truly a hidden gem in the kootenay region, worth the... More

We often travel through Creston and love to stop at the great Thai Restaurant located in the same building as this motel. It is run by a different owner than the motel. We arrived one Monday afternoon at the reception area and I asked the two men at the front desk if the restaurant was open as we always look... More

We have stayed in this hotel numerous times when it was under previous ownership. The renovations were nice. My only negative comment would be the lighting. It is quite dark in the room and bathroom with the lights on. The staff and the owner who we chatted with on our last morning were all very friendly and accommodating. We were... More

With a large window in each room, it would be so dim for some guests if our blackout curtains are closed. We're changing the light bulb with brightest one and wil... More

This is not a lavish motel but the upgrades are noticeable and appreciated. The room was clean and comfortable; I like the laminate flooring verses a carpet. The keurig coffee maker is a nice little convenience and the restaurant attached to the hotel served excellent food.

The first room the A/C didn't work, so they moved us to another room. This second room had 2 queen beds, so you would expect 4 bath towels, 2 to 4 face towels, etc. there was1 bath towel, 1 small towel, 2 face towels. Not great when there's more than one person staying in the room. The fan in the... More

After a cruise through town,,,, (and a price check at the Ramada $160) this property stood out. Obviously the "newly renovated" on the sign had some backing to it. My wife checked the room while I discussed price, the answer from her was "beautiful" . The new owner explained how he has been investing and upgrading this property, from the... More

This hotel has mostly been renovated and there are still renovations happening in the court yard. Breakfast was small but it was there all the same. We were there when it was mostly empty, that could explain the size of the complimentary breakfast.

Thank you for taking the time to review the Magnuson Hotel, Laura. The waterscape and BBQ area in the courtyard is now complete. We think you will find it very relaxing.

Not fancy, but an excellent place to spend a night. Got a very good sleep, and very friendly service. Owner ran out to meet us as we were leaving to give us a map with directions to where we were going. Highly recommend.
