We traveled here for a family weekend getaway. The hotel is in a good location, close to just about everything you could ask for, and it seemed to be in a safe area. My biggest issue is the place was very much on its last leg. This place needs some big time updates. Rooms stink, carpet is wore out, old... More

We have been staying at this hotel 1 to 2 times a year for the past few years. Recently the name has changed and we found it to be not as good. It seems a little deteriorated and not as clean. Even though the bathroom was a decent size it had a shower stuffed in the corner with a pedestal... More

The location is great. Right by Legoland. If legoland had a back entrance to the water park it would be perfect but they don't so you still have to drive to get there. Outside of that.... This place was probably the cat's meow and the bees knees in the 70s. Now? When is the last time you saw a pool... More

This hotel would be a 2 star at best without the pool and the location. We were going to Legoland and it is less than 5 minutes from the hotel. They should offer a shuttle but they dont so we have to pay $14 a day to park because it was too hot to walk. The outdoor pool was huge... More

I booked this hotel because we were going to Legoland and it was close and some reviews were pretty good. It is gross!!!! Everything seems old and dirty, the locks on the door are broken, the bathroom is so small you can barely shut the door, the rugs probably haven't been cleaned in forever. Need lots of work to fix...

I purchased this stay at a discount at a great rate because it was the closest to Legoland,Fl and the accomodations were average. The first room we checked in the code keys did not work and the room had to be changed but the staff did fix the problem immediately. The rooms were small and needed to be updated and... More

We stayed at this hotel over the weekend and all I have to say is that this has been a horrible experience. The mildew in the shower is DISGUSTING, and it seems that the carpet in the room hasn't been cleaned in ages. The hotel is currently being remodeled and I understand that they might be construction workers around during... More

So this past weekend my family and I spent the night in the Magnuson Grand on a visit to LegoLand. The hotel itself seems like a very old structure that they are attempting to update here and there. It's a good value for being so close to the park and I feel as they continue to upgrade this hotel it... More

Low ceilings. This must have been a nice hotel in the 1970's. Furnishings look like they have not been updated since then. Cleanliness leaves much to be desired. But you should not expect much when you pay less than 100$/ day in Florida. One good point, the reception ladies were very friendly.

The tower rooms are clean and large. The fridge and microwave were handy. I like the proximity to LEGOLAND. The pool is huge, like the old time hotels. The elevators are a bit slow, but we'll go back.
