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

I was very disappointed in this hotel. The staff was rude, the hallway was so hot, the elevator needs to be inspected, the pool room felt like a sauna, they barely came to clean our room, when they did they left us a few towels and 2 wash cloths, mind you I have 5 people in my family. Went to... More

This hotel is terrible. The sheets smell like they have not been washed in weeks. A/C has mold growing in it, our key card reader was broke so everytime we came back the front desk had to come let us into our room. The bathroom door looks like someone kicked it open and murdered somone in there. The pillows are... More

Wow. I've traveled a lot in my lifetime and can say this was the worst hotel experience I've ever had. Where shall I begin? With the elevators expired permit? Oh, or the dirty underwear on the broken washer all week? No, I'll start with the fact that our room wasn't cleaned ONCE during our 5 night stay. Want photos? Happy... More

We pull up and go to check in and the person working the front desk is rude. She can't do more than one thing at a time and It took about 20 minutes just to check in. We walk into the room put our luggage down and already see roaches crawling on the door. I wouldn't recommend this to my... More
