We have stayed here several times, mainly for the great Thai Restaurant off the Motel lobby. The Motel used to be the Hacienda. It is in the process of being upgraded. Our room was clean and comfortable. The motel seems to be used by a lot of businesses, and there were a few large trucks. We were at the far... More

My second visit to Creston, BC. but it was my first time at this cozy place. Old, but well renovated room with elegant taste in fixture, as well as a beautiful fountain at the center of the site where you can rest and relax comfortably under the shade. Most of all, the staff was very helpful and friendly. Highly recommended.

Check in was friendly and convenient, clerk was friendly and helpful, even brought us rags right to our room so we could clean our bikes. Rooms were clean. Were able to drive right up to our rooms. Hotel has no hot tub or pool. Courtyard is conducive to visiting with neighbors.

The hotel looks like a motel on the outside but the room we had was newly renovated. It was nice but room is too tight. That time the outside was still being renovated so the water fountain/water garden is not yet done. There is a free breakfast but very very limited choices but better than nothing. The staff at the... More

Check in was quick and friendly. Room was surprisingly large. Very clean. Bed was definitely not a queen... More a double. I decided to sleep on the couch as it was a bit too snug for myself and my husband. They have this lovely water feature in the middle of the parking lot with chairs and lights. We really enjoyed...

Never had som much trouble, or took so much time, to make a reservation when I tried through ReservationDesk.com which comes up when you are looking to make a reservation. I finally gave up and called the hotel directly and got much better service, and I could understand the person speaking to me as well.

Normally we stay at Hotels so I was a bit suspect of this sprawling Motel. Glad we committed. Terry (the Check-in fellow) was friendly. The rooms were a good size, spotlessly clean and had a nice colour scheme with real hardwood. The beds were comfortable and there was ample parking. The only disappointment was that due to having too few... More

I have stayed in Creston several times, but never at the Magnusson. On my most recent trip, the hotel I normally stayed at was closed and the Magnusson offered itself up for my inspection.

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
