My stay at the Magnuson was great. I work nights, and this place is quiet. It has a restaurant, a beach bar, 2 pools and a beach. Beautiful view of the bay at Sunrise and Sunset. Maids clean daily, and are efficient. Front desk clerk Adam was a professional and he gave a few extra minutes for me to check... More

Like most folks we actually spend very little time in a room and this hotel is in a great spot to get around and see the sights. Exit 19 just before the toll entrance to the Skyline Bridge, easy on and off. 15 minutes or less to downtown St Pete, the Museum of Fine Arts and the Dali Museum. 10... More

Stayed here overnight for a quick weekend getaway. Right off the highway, the place is old and it shows. Clean enough for the age but would have preferred an updated hotel to be honest. The staff was very friendly, easy & quick check in, they let had a room for us early. Would recommend for a night, maybe 2 at... More

I booked this hotel because I was attending a baseball tournament at Eckerd College and the location was perfect. I have never stayed here but I read the reviews and they were good. Upon arrival, the staff was very kind and helpful checking in and all staff we came in contact with throughout our stay were incredibly kind and helpful.... More

I love this place. It's low key. On the water and very inexpensive. Service is great and the bar is full liquor. 2 pools one heated and a jaquizzi. If your looking for a quiet spot to relax without the hubbub, this is your place. There's a small beach. Could be cleaned up a little and also Bring your own... More

We try to only select hotels with a view of the water. Staff extremely helpful and friendly. Tiki Hut bar on stilts gives you a gorgeous view of The Sunshine Skyway Bridge. Pub type food was fine, drinks at a semi reasonable price for being on the water. Rooms are small, but very clean. You will love the private balcony... More

This was my 2nd time staying at this hotel and it was equally enjoyable as the 1st time, possibly even better. I had a slight hiccup at check in, but it was on behalf of the 3rd party that i booked through so i would suggest that you book directly through the hotel & NOT through Expedia!!! However, even after... More

It was an ok hotel. The price was good but the rooms need updating. The rooms are quite dark, and a little stuffy. The location was good for us, but would consider looking for another hotel in the future. The staff was friendly and the pool area was clean. The beach was not usable because of sea debris.

Ok hotel rooms with an ok facility. Nothing in particular is wrong with the hotel but the rooms are a little outdated and could be freshend up. We might stay again because location is convenient for us (family). So it is an ok place but nothing special.

We selected the hotel due to being able to dock our boat which was very convenient, The hotel was nice but could use upgrading, The staff at the front desk were helpful. The dining room was very disappointing, service was very slow and uncaring and the food was barely adequate with a limited menu. Surprised that a hotel on the... More
