Me and my wife went to Clearwater Beach to celebrate our anniversary; we drove from Kissimmee (central Florida area) and went in the morning but were going to come back home the same evening! To make the long story short, we decided to stay in Clearwater, so we started looking at the hotels in the area (including the "big names... More

Just wanted to take a little time for ourselves, to be close to the beach and watch the sun set over the palm trees. We choose the Magnuson, because it was perfectly located across from the beach. Our room was large and clean. The pool was clean, the people were friendly. Raymond told us to visit "Crabby's" down the street... More

Wanted to reward kids with completing their school year with a surprise weekend trip out to Clearwater. Found this hotel through booking.com. Plenty of space for all 5 us (two beds, one pull out). We usually stay at Coconut Cove but rate entices us to try this spot. Great: balcony looking out onto beach, walking distance to (the pier 60... More

Went here for a family reunion, and decided I wanted to stay near the beach by myself. The hotel was nice, but we got to the room (mind you there was no elevator to get to our room), there were clothes in the room from people already staying there. Staff apologized and they cleaned the room. The next night, the... More

What a wonderful hotel. Doesnt look too great from the outside but the rooms were way bigger than expected, spacious and comfortable. They were always made up immaculately. The pool was average but didnt mind as the hotel was just across the road from the beach. Had chairs so you could sit outside the room and watch pool/beach. Would definatley... More

The only thing good about this hotel is the location from the beach. We arrived here at the hotel, the handle was broke on the door, the sofa bed was broke we weren't going to complain because things happen but the second to last night we found a cockroach. The next morning we decided to check out a day early... More

We visited the Magnuson from 6/28-7/1/2014. This hotel wasn't a Hyatt or Hilton but it had great beach access and a friendly enough staff. The pool is decent and clean and the family suite was perfectly sized for my family's needs. Although the whole hotel could use a face lift (our shower needed the strength or 2 men to turn... More

I'm not very impressed with my stay here. First i'll start by listing the negative things about this place and then the positive. The door knob continues to fall off. Housekeeping isn't very friendly and gave us damp towels. No blankets or sheets were provided for the pull out sofa bed, which broke when we pulled it out. I immediately... More
