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

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. The continental breakfast has been very popular and we will try harder at keeping it fully stocked for all guests from 7am-10am. Thanks for staying with us and we... More

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.

We started by having a curry in the adjoining restaurant (very good) then stayed at the motel. Room was quiet, with nice bed. the room has microwave, coffee maker and fridge. Bathroom has rain shower head. floors were hardwood and tile, and very clean. Clerk was very friendly and interested. All in all a great experience.

I decided to try the Magnuson after being dissapointed by the Ramada on my last business trip. This was a great choice. The beds were as comfortable, the staff much more professional and the rooms cleaner. A couple of the renovation choices are still a little old fashioned (bedding), but a nice, clean, friendly place to stay.
