My daughter and I planned a four day mini vacation at this motel and greatly enjoyed the stay. We were upgraded by the staff automatically. Room was very clean and was surprised of the free continental breakfast also. I would highly recommend this hotel.

I was really excited about this hotel because I got an amazing deal for Thanksgiving week and it was right near the beach. The staff was a bit on the unfriendly side and I was not impressed with the "free breakfast" (which was coffee, juice and packaged pastries and bread items). Our TV wasn't working in our room and when... More

The Magnuson is an older hotel on Clearwater Beach. It's not a fancy high-rise like the nearby Hyatt, but the rooms are spacious and comfortable. The beach location cannot be beat. The view of the gulf is gorgeous, the white-sand beach is right across the street, and there are a number of great restaurants within a very easy walk. The... More

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
