When we arrived, we thought we put the wrong address into the GPS. The sign in front still reads" Days Inn", I'm assuming what it was before it became Magnuson. Very confusing. The staff was mostly nice. When we got into our room, it was OK. We were in room 101, right beside the pool. King bed, fridge, flat screen... More

My family and I had the most horrific stay here and a stay that only lasted 2 hours because of the conditions and behavior we were dealt with. First, the name of the hotel is not even Manguson it is a Days Inn. Second the pictures the website have online don't even come close the actual condition of the hotel.... More

Stayed at the Magnuson Hotel/ Days Inn for three nights. It was pretty clean, has a nice staff and a nice continental breakfast. You may have to ask for some extra towels and it may be a little dusty here and there but overall it was a really nice stay. The TV gets more channels than other hotels usually do,... More

We took a little last minute winter vacation to Gulf Shores. The beds were comfortable and we really enjoyed our stay. Staff were helpful and friendly. Good stay for the price. The breakfast was disappointing and they need better lighting out by the road to see the entrance to turn in.

Based on reviews was much nicer than anticipated. Rooms were clean and staff was helpful. Beds were comfortable and looks like TV's recently changed out to new flat screens. Recently changed to Magnuson from Day's Inn although Day's Inn signs were still up. Plan on buying your own breakfast. Skimpiest I've seen so far. Consists of coffee, juice, milk, cereal... More

We stayed here for a family vacation. We were looking for affordable and this was it. We loved the location because we were close enough to the beach without paying beach prices. Not a top of the line motel and could use a deep cleaning and we just went out for breakfast because it was cereal and orange juice. Also... More

This hotel is now a Magnuson Hotel. They still have all the Days Inn logos on everything but they are under new management and are getting the place in shape. First off the price was great. For a three nights stay that only cost is $240. Most place near here cost that for a night or two. Staff was firendly... More
