If you're looking for a family friendly retreat off the beaten path, the Magnuson is definitely an option for the budget conscious, but not during a February cold snap. All I could think of doing was leaving the property. The bathroom countertop in my room was crawling with tiny indigenous aphids, which the custodian promptly sprayed The hotel's two heated... More

We have been vacationing here for 12 years and love it! This year we were able to take an extended 6 week winter vacation and knew this was exactly where we wanted to go. Everything you need while on your Florida vacation is right here.The property is meticulously landscaped! The heated pool and hot tub are perfect for those cooler... More

We stayed in a room that was overlooking the parking lot, although we requested one through Orbitz to face the water- but they could not honor that. We didn't make any formal complaints but figured we would post to make others aware. The room was dirty and old. We wiped everything down when we got in and could see the... More

we stayed here during a cold snap in February and it was too cold to do anything but admire from the window many of the amenities, like multiple pools & lounges, a shuffleboard court!, outdoor bars etc. My room was spacious and clean, with plenty of chairs, desk, small dining table inside and on the balcony, mini fridge & coffeemaker...

The room needed updated. The room appeared dirty due to 20 years of wear and tear. The mattress was very hard. The bar, beach, and pool areas were great but I will never stay here again because the rooms were so bad.

The hotel is conveniently located near the Sunshine Skyway Bridge, easy to get to the highway for St. Pete attractions. Even though the neighborhood itself isn't pretty, the hotel is right on the water so the views are good. They allow pets so that's a big plus for me. I was pleased with the fitness center, surprisingly well-equipped for a... More

Stayed two nights and couldn't stay in same room because they were "sold out" no way maybe a 1/4 of parking lot was filled up at any given time. After switching rooms realized that housekeeping stole my brand new clothes. 3 items. Stay away from this rat trap

This is one of the worst "hotel" stays I have ever experienced. To start, they 'lost' my reservation and then found it entered in as the wrong date. Then, I was put in the most disgusting area of the property and the room was horrendous. The bedding was stained with obvious bodily fluids and you could see suspicious stains underneath... More

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
