This property is gorgeous right on the water, with 2 pools, hot tub, restaurant, casual deli and really fun Tiki Bar there are not many reasons to leave. However if you do want to venture off location the hotel is ideally between all the shopping and dining of Downtown St. Pete as well as the beautiful St. Pete beaches. So... More

I booked this with a long time friend through Allegiant as a weekend getaway. It is located miles away from anything but the view of the bay makes up for it. The staff were all very helpful. We arrived prior to check in time but had no problem getting into our room. In fact, they gave us a choice of... More

Stayed here 5 nights last week while dropping youngest daughter off at Eckerd College, which is very close by. Check in was fairly easy, although I almost immediately got a text alert from Amex that the resort had charged my card about $800, which confused me because it was supposed to be $571 or so for the stay. After a... More

We have stayed here twice so far with plans to stay many times in the future as our daughter is in college nearby. Everything has been clean and well suited to our needs. The hotel structure is a little dated, but very sufficient for a good night's rest. With the "Courtyard" room we could see the bay just fine (just... More

Do not stay here! The rooms are terrible, the neighborhood is sketchy, and they let anyone charge anything to your room. Our friends that had the room next to us had a random guest charge $90 for dinner to their room.

springmans, Manager at Magnuson Hotel Marina Cove, responded to this review

Thank you for your response. Regarding the issue of a room charge to your friend's room, we removed the charge that day once we verified that it belonged to another guest. We spoke to your friend the next day explaining that no charge was forthcoming. The guest was complimentary about the timeliness and professionalism in which this issue was resolved. More

Think long and hard before you stay here, we were supposed to stay a week and spent the night and left. The website stated "beach front resort" lol NOT... The "beach" is man-made, very small, and has piles of smelly seaweed...gross, but we left because the room smelled like pee, we never took our shoes off because I was afraid... More
