There are multiple reasons why I would not recommend this hotel. The hotel condition itself is very old and feels dirty and has a horrible old musty smell. My shower had mold all across the bottom. The carpet was old and felt dirty. There are many rooms with outside doors and even a building that is completely detached from the... More

This hotel has potential to be serviceable, but in its current state it is not. While not dirty, there are loads of updates and improvements that need to happen. Its location and "view", basically an abandoned lot, does not help. Though, it is not a bad area at all. In fact, it's a solid location overall with food and shops... More

The building is an expansive motel-type (external entrance) property. While the sheets and towels were freshened each day, the room lacked updated amenities, decor and furnishings. Much of the aforementioned were in poor repair, and it would be difficult to say that the room was "clean." Staff was friendly and courteous, but there was ample evidence of common housekeeping and... More

There was a rotten strawberry on the carpet. Had to stay at least one night due to my arrival time. The next day, the room was not even cleaned. The event organizer that suggested to stay, apologized immensely for suggesting to stay there. The place is a dump! Spider in the shower with its web... Old style TV's, loud truck... More

DO NOT STAY AT THIS HOTEL. Multiple health and safety violations. PICTURES on website are a complete FRAUD! Drop ceiling with multiple water stains and holes in ceiling in bathroom. BLACK mold on the tiles in bathroom. Dirty floors. Gas station style toilets. Railings shaky around entire perimeter on third floor. BUILDING TRASH all over the parking lot. NOTHING GRAND... More

This is a hotel that is well-valued but not fancy. Rooms were comfortable and spacious, bedding was excellent, but the general appearance is a bit dated. Hallway lighting is somewhat dim. Continental breakfast was generous with good variety. All in all, if expectations are appropriate at the outset, I don't think many will be disappointed.

Was staying at the HI Express nearby which is a nicer property (and more expensive) but the WiFi there was unusable...very slow and kept dropping. It was not their problem,but their provider but I could not wait for them to fix it as I had business to transact on line. I checked in to the Magnuson after confirming their WiFi... More

Made a pre-paid reservation about a month ago. Checked in last night around 5:30pm with my wife and two young grandchildren (after spending all day at nearby LEGOLAND.) We were all tired and ready to wash up and relax before going out to dinner. Only 1 person was working at the reception, meaning that we had to wait 20 minutes... More

We were told check in time was 3:00. We returned at 5:30. Still no room. The hotel was over booked, disorganized and out dated. When we finally were given a room there was no air conditioning. Imagine, south Florida without air conditioning. There was no light at the bathroom sink. The bathroom was in severe need of repair. Needless to... More
