We booked a seafront room and had a perfect view of the fabulous sunset whilst sat on the balcony. A motel type hotel with a large room, twin beds, and a kitchenette area, it was only an overnight stop after seeing the American football in nearby Tampa but would definitly stay again if in the area. Just forget the breakfast... More

Stayed here for three days. Room was clean, beds comfy. The location on Gulfview Blvd is great. Close to good restaurants. And of course, across the street from the beach. Our room had a pool view, which was fine. The bathroom was old and waterlogged. Peeling paint on the walls, cracked flooring and the tub/shower was chipped. Every outlet was... More

It's not the newest or the fanciest but it was just what we wanted. The room was comfortable and clean. The view was the best on the island. Best value is reservations online thru their website. Will do this again and soon.

The Magnusen is a great hotel very centrally located. Great restaurants located close by and the staff is very helpful with suggestions, as well as anything you need. They are great at spring break time making sure everyone has a good time but things don't get crazy! The pool and the rooms are nice. I love the rooms with the... More

We stayed for two nights. Great location at economical price. Large rooms with standard amenities. Some rooms have microwaves or fridge or both. Nice standard pool that is 8ft in the deep end. Standard continental breakfast...nothing special. Lots of eateries within walking distance. Hotel feels that it might needs some upgrading but because of the combination of location and price...

We stayed in room 311 it had a wonderful view of the beach. You could park your car and never have to leave again, everything was in walking distance shopping, restaurants, the beach, and there is even a ice cream shop on the grounds. The outside of the building showed signs of the wear and tears from the salt water... More

The hotel is in a great position. We booked a room with an ocean view, and were given the key to a room with a "glimpse" of the sea if you stood on tip-toes in the corner of the room. I went to reception and to be fair they immediately rectified the issue. The room we were then given had... More
