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.

Extremely pleased. Good service, good rates, and fantastic staff. We were there on a motorcycle and they were glad to have use unlike some places. They are actually anxious to have more motorcycles and group come there. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Motel is close to all amenities. A great place to stay. I'll be back and I'll recommend it...

Recently stayed at the Magnuson and had my expectation met. This is NOT a Four Seasons property, so do not expect the amenities that you would of a 5 star calibre hotel. The Magnuson is your typical old school independent "motel", however it has recently been renovated. The room decor was bland, but comfortable, clean and fairly spacious. The renovations... More

Thank you for the review Mark. We have addressed the WiFi issues by removing the three old modems and installing five new higher powered modems. We have also installed Shaw's new Shaw Go WiFi for existing Shaw customers. We feel this should give us perfect coverage throughout the 51 rooms. Thank you for giving us a shot and we hope... More

The Magnuson Hotel used to be called the Hacienda Inn. I called the hotel to book and inquire about the rooms and the front desk gentleman went way above and beyond to check two rooms for me and call me back twice. I travel with my family at least three times a year into the States and have never had... More
