Staying here allowed us to take a cheap vacation to the beach. It is a short drive away but you literally leave the hotel, turn right and go straight to the public beach. The hotel could definately use some remodeling but I didn't expect much for the price. The breakfast is simple, toast, oatmeal, cereal, juice, milk and that's about... More

We were camping when our son came through town with his wife and son. Our RV didn't have lots of room as we were filled to capacity; so we thought we would surprise him with a comfortable room. We found this one nearby. We went in and talked to the manager and booked them a room. She said it worked... More

Turned out to be a Day's Inn! Had to evacuate because of fire alarm, someone burned popcorn! Old and run down! Nothing worked, outlet for hair dryer, missing light bulbs, towels, no alarm clock, and breakfast was very poor!

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
