Just returned from a four night stay. Hotel exceeded expectations. Location was highly convenient to both airports (Tampa and St. Pete) with easy highway access. Bed was comfortable, room in the 'motel' section while somewhat tired was clean and fresh. The amenities are nice - lounge, restaurant, bar, pool, beach. They really cleaned up the beach it looks like, since... More

booked it on the fly the night before. Just hoped it would be clean. It was a find. Older, but thoughtfully redone. Steampunk Nemoesque restaurant/bar with good food and attentive staff marina view. Manicured grounds with small beach, heated pool, cool banyan trees, tiki bar on stilts. Bay view was terrific. Great beds, better shower than the Hyatt the night... More

One of the best kept secrets in St. Pete. Went to the Shriner's "East-West" football game at Tropicana Field and stayed Jan. 16 & 17 in room 415. Very friendly desk staff, quick & efficient check-in, plenty of parking, clean & comfortable room, quiet at night, and all around pleasant. Right on the water was a big surprise. Great location....

We stayed 4 days in this hotel. Very clean, comfortable beds, bathrooms a bit dated but all in good order. The location is perfect for getting to places within a short time - great location to walk in beautiful Maximo Park. Grocery close by etc. This is a 50 year old resort that reminds you that friendly service goes a... More

Spent two nights here over New Year. We were originally allocated rooms in the block to the left as you drive in. These are not great rooms. They need updating and some have a damp smell. The courtyard rooms however, which we were moved to are very nice. The hotel as great facilities, and a great position. Staff are friendly... More

Good value run of the mill hotel, a bit isolated nice pool anda marina, lovely view over the bay, with a not so desirable neighbourhood! Staff were helpful, watch out for carol the widow! She's always drunk in the indoor bar! Harmless though!( lives locally)

We attended the New Years Eve Party for the first time, and were extremely happy with the service both at the front desk, and for the event in a private room. All the rooms overlook the pool and/ or marina, and have a balcony or patio. We were impressed with the food at the buffet, because as we all know,... More

This is the second year of attending a New Year's Eve party with band, dinner and champagne toast at midnight. It is a marina, right on the water, so expect some dampness. And because it's an older hotel (several buildings - not connected) and has gone thru several owners, it's definitely not the Four Seasons. However, it's pleasant enough, if... More

The Magnuson Hotel was a very pleasant surprise for an older hotel, it very clean and maintained hotel, this place is ran by a very professional staff from top to bottom that why I gave it a 5 stars. We stay in St. Pete area at least twice a year and The Magnuson Hotel Marina Cove will be our place... More

We are a family of 5 with 3 kids 4,4 and 6. Staff were really friendly. Great hotel playground which kept kids entertained while we ate. Pool warm and kids loved. Beach bar great for a sundowner. Location is fine, easy and fast transport, you do need a car. Close to St Petes beach but we found hectic, went further... More
