If you are looking for a value rated hotel, this is a nice place. The rooms were clean, and the property was maintained. It was a close location to the area we needed to be and that was convenient. Breakfast was common and nothing special. Bed was comfortable and linens were clean. This was a non-smoking room and it smelled... More

Older, run down outdated, but for the rate... adequate... rooms have direct tv boxes in every room & wifi included. The breakfast was nothing special...if you are on a tight budget & not too particular this is ok... i stayed here because my neices are on the college softball team having a tournament right around the corner

We have stayed here when it was owned by Travelodge and since it has been taken over by the new company EVERY thing has gone downhill. The rooms aren't a s clean as they used to be. The first room we checked into the toilet didn't have any water in the tank so you couldn't flush and there was a... More

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

We were quickly greeted by the always friendly on-site Owner and also recognized a familiar face behind the front desk who... More
