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.

Bought as Groupon deal due to location. Very close to Legoland and with a view of the waterpark in the room situated in front of the pool side. This is an older hotel that needs renovation/update to attract more people to stay with them considering their location. Cleanliness/comfort: carpet has that old musty smell and not very clean, metal bar... More

My nine year old daughter and I are spending two months driving around the US with no schedule or plan. We visited a friend in Ocala, FL and my daughter saw a sign for LegoLand and we decided to head to Winter Haven. We stumbled across the Magnuson on Hotels.com. It was the 1st hotel listed. I was a little... More

We stayed one night at this dump, never again... We waited 1 hour past check-in time to get into our room. The bed was lumpy, the a/c unit was so loud we could barely sleep. Wiring on exit signs hanging out on each floor, one elevator didnt work, one ice machine worked for the three floors. Dont be fooled about... More

This hotel is older but it was great for a little weekend getaway away with the kids to Legoland. We had no problems with our stay. The room was very clean. The complimentary breakfast was better than expected. The kids the loved the pool.

We stayed at the Park View for a baseball tournament 4/12/14 because there was no availability anywhere in Winter Haven. Some of the team decided to drive to Lakeland to stay based on some of the poor reviews but it was only one night....how bad could it be. It wasn't nearly as bad as some of the reviews make it...

I booked a block of rooms at this hotel for my daughter's soccer team and I nearly cancelled my reservation after reading a few of the reviews. I'm VERY glad that we didn't change. The hotel exceeded my expectations and I heard nothing but positive comments from the other parents as well. First of all, Casey, the lady in charge... More
