We were traveling thru toward Virginia. Looking for a place to rest our weary head. Given that the other too chain options were $129 & $139, we decided to give the Magnuson a chance. Very pleased . Friendly staff. Clean room. Comfortable Queen bed (wished a king had been an option). Very Quiet. Free Breakfast that we slept thru. All... More

Stayed one night while driving to the Carolinas. The hotel is clean and well-maintained, looks like they recently renovated. Check in was a breeze and got a good night's rest in a clean room. Would stay again if we're back.

Like another reviewer, we were on our way to the high country and needed a night's rest. Place is clean. New carpets. Check in was a little cumbersome and counter person was very casually dressed but he got it done. Breakfast was nothing to talk about,at least positively. I was most unhappy that there was NO ice machine. The have... More

If you are only looking for a place to lay your head down this place is it. We stayed there to be close to the hospital, which they gave us a nice discount since we would be return customers. The beds were clean and comfortable but the pillows are a little on the small side. The bathroom was clean, all... More

Traveling to the mountains of North Georgia and stopped for the night short of our destination. Having booked thru an online reservation service there were no issues on check-in and staff was professional and friendly. We however did have a few surprises during our stay. Being the start of Summer we brought our swimsuits in case the pool was open... More

Room and hotel was clean. They had free wifi so I could work. The staff was helpful -- they gave me two bottles of water after they found out I was walking to buy a bottle. If I'm in Lavonia again, I'll stay here.

I was working out of town and was lucky to find this Econolodge. The staff was friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean and comfortable. This econolodge fit my needs perfectly by providing a place to rest after a long day of work and was priced in a manner that wasn't overbearing for charging out travel expenses to our client....

Then he took the key card, put it in the door lock,opened the door and showed us the room. It was a nice room, so we took it. 15 minutes later our son... More

The room was $7 cheaper than the motel 8 down the road. The hotel got the job done for a few hours sleep and a shower, but the rooms were not fantastic. If you are not a high maintenance person, this place will be fine. I used my personal pillow and used sandals in the shower.

If you need a quick stay, you may find this satisfactory for its highway location and nearby restaurants. The hosts are very nice. The hotel needs a fresh smell so I opened the window for the night. It is an older property with windows that still open. Value property.
