This hotel had the perfect location, right on the beach but still at an affordable rate and very clean. They were very accommodating when i had to reschedule my stay 2 different times (thanks airlines!). Rooms were also a good size.

I booked my hotel stay with Magnuson online. No where did it state that there was a $15.00 parking fee. I had spoken with the staff and they said it is stated on their website. I wasn't charged the $15.00 because my friend booked her room online and the staff said she paid for it when she booked so I... More

I appreciate that the parking is free. The pool was nice. The location is almost perfect except that they are constructing a new hotel across the street, but that won't last forever. The room was nice, but the bathroom was not fit for a larger-sized person. Great value!

Compared with other more expensive hotels in the area, the Magnuson Hotel is really good value. Staff are friendly and the facilities good. I was upgraded to a room with a pool view at no extra cost without even asking. I would stay there again.
