We probably should have stayed next door in the La Quinta like our friends suggested but we wanted to save 20 bucks. NEVER AGAIN!! We slept...and the best part was probably the coffee and OJ in the morning. My wife was afraid to walk barefoot. This place needs work!

I had actually never heard of Magnuson hotels, but needed a hotel in Clearwater, where All the Roads are Named US-19, so I booked it for last weekend. And although the staff were very pleasant and the room was clean, this is not a hotel I will stay at again. Here's why: * Location, location, location: There are a bazillion... More

Fourth visit to the Hotel, surprised to see a name change when we arrived. After arriving in the lobby, it took all of 30 seconds for us to realize that the name on the door was the only change.

very well used accommodation, really needs a facelift. Would suggest doing a few rooms at a time. Look at Florida City Travelodge for ideas. Wifi too weak, they said they tried to fix?

The room was clean however the Microwave was on the seat and there was no refrigerator in the room. I have pictures of microwave on the seat and no refrigerator where it should have been.

Road construction in front of hotel has been underway for years...if you are not familiar with area, it's a nightmare trying to find your way in...we were on the second floor with no elevator in our building or close...we had "do not disturb sign" on door, maid ignored it and made up room...price was right for very average property

First time visiting Florida and I love it. I got to visit all the shops and sightsee. Also drove to Tampa to see Trina perform at a club which was the highlight of my trip. I will love to visit again.
