Great waterfront location, clean, comfortable room with a nice view. Friendly staff and decent food choices on site. If you have a small boat or PWC there is trailer parking on site and boat ramps in close proximity.

It was late in the day and we made the mistake to book a room there without carefully researching it. We should have trusted the previous reviews made about this hotel. It is without any exaggeration one of the worst place I have seen, located in one of the worst area (boarded projects, liquor stores, pawn shops, no restaurants around)... More

There is significant room for improvement at the Magnuson Marina Cove but for the prices charged, it offers good value. The rooms are reasonable in size, housekeeping service is efficient and clean, the location by the beach is great, the bar on the beach is relaxing, the staff friendly though not very knowledgeable about downtown St Petersburg and still less...

We really enjoyed our stay, the staff was great.the grounds were well kept and the pool and hot tub were very enjoyable. We ate at the resturant three times and the food and service was very good. It was a fun four day getaway at the Magnuson! Thanks for everything.

Stayed for 7 days. The staff are all very nice and polite. House keeping is on the ball! The heated pool was enyoyable, as the hot tub was even more so. The Periscope restaraunt has great food and it was prepared very well. Great staff as well. the hotel is dated, tube televisions within the rooms, but t.v. was the... More

Tear it down and rebuild. Nests of bugs in the bathroom. Mold everywhere. Rotten wood holding the building up. The price was outrageous for a dump. I was actually scared to stay here. The bolt was on the front door the entire time.

Nice older hotel that use to be the show stopper at one time. Has seen MUCH better days but you also get what you pay for. The rooms were spacious but run down and in need of attention. Mostly clean but again needed some attention. Visited the restaurant for dinner and was pleasantly surprised. The meal was WONDERFUL! The portions,... More

How good this property is for your trip all depends on the rate you get. We got an 84 dollar rate due to an event we were attending. Regular rate was over 100. Anything above 90 is a bad deal. Overall the property simply looks aged. Maybe 3-4 years past where you would expect a full renovation. Overall we had... More
