I previously called because some of the reviews were not to positive and was told that though it was an older property that it was in good shape. Not true. The lobby was the only thing that looks like it's been renovated. Our room smelled musty so much so that I purchased a can of Lysol. The overall appearance of... More

Stayed here with our baseball team and the entire team is in agreement that this hotel is just awful! From the lack of cleanliness to the musty old smell everywhere to the bugs its just terrible! Will never stay or recommend this hotel! I had to be honest.

Very disappointed. As soon as we walked in there was a cockroach going up the wall ... Jacuzzi wasn't working and pool was dirty. If u want cheap and somewhere to lay your head down then it's ok but pictures are defiantly deceiving. Would not stay again

Corporate meeting for 40+ people and the staff was amazing. Interactive technology allowed us to provide full day of training for those who could not attend. Lightning fast Wi-Fi. Large conference space. Lunch on veranda overlooking the pool. The staff was extremely helpful and professional. I recommend the Magnuson Grand for your corporate events.

It's very close to Legoland and the pool area is beautiful but that's all the positives. The front staff was unprofessional. She was on the phone ordering her dinner for over ten minutes while I and many others waited to check in. It's very out dated and old. The elevator was very shaky and we thought we might get stuck.... More

We chose to stay at this hotel because it was so close to Legoland, but Legoland Hotel was booked and super expensive anyway. The reviews about this hotel scared me, but we bit the bullet anyway. It is an older hotel for sure, but the rooms were clean, with newer carpeting. We did NOT see any mold or bugs! The... More

My family and I stayed at this hotel this weekend and like the title says..not the best but not the worst. The location of this hotel is great if you plan on visiting Legoland!You can see the Flying School ride from the parking lot and we were easily able to walk to the park instead of spending $15 for parking....

Was clean but really outdated and old. Breakfast was pretty good. Half mile from legoland, which is why we stayed. Pretty expensive ($75 and $15 more with taxes) for the condition. Came in late and left early, so worked well. Would not advise to stay for extended time.
