One night stay. The hotel is centrally located in one of St Pete's main streets, and it is clean (room and common areas). The typical two story budget hotel, with the basic amenities, but not of a dilapidated type. The lobby ceiling needs repair. Fenced parking lot, Very friendly staff. Early check-in (just one hour earlier) took around 45 minutes... More

Renovations are progressing beautifully. This is my second stay within the last six months. Rooms are large, recently renovated and immaculate. Front desk staff, the best~ friendly, personable, helpful. Pool area was spotless with a very large, clean pool ........... close enough to downtown and Rays' stadium. Denny's is next door which is great for breakfast!

The rooms were just updated very nice. the customer service was great. Eric and Jameson really went out of their way to make me feel special. Large pool. The room had a desk to work on my paperwork. Close to the Rays baseball field.

For under $50, the room (which was recently re-done) was adequate and generally clean. I commend Magnuson for going with tile rather than carpet; there was no musty rug odor even though the A/C was off upon arrival. Linen was clean and the room is equipped with a flat-screen TV with DirectTV (I'm not sure about selection or reception, since... More

The hotel was being refurbished apparently, but I was given what I was led to believe was the only room left - a room that was dirty (dust/grit on floor; an alien hair on the bath) and very poorly furnished. One of the two lamps had no bulb, and the other didn't turn off properly. Facilities in the room were... More

This place sucks. Never cleaned my room. Floors coming off the concrete. Like walking on the moon. Worse. Dirty. Funky. Stayed at the magnus son in St Petes beach. Less money. Much better hotel. This company should be embarrassed to to charge what they charge. Disgusting.

My friends and I had made a reservation at the La Quinta next door, hoping to have a short beach weekend to start off our otherwise work filled spring break, only to find that we couldn't even check in due to the fact that all of us were under 21 (three of us 18 and one of us 20).
