We are fairly difficult to please when it comes to hotel accommodations, so I was a little reluctant to stay at this hotel because it is located in such a small town. We reserved through Orbitz and got a great price, which convinced us to give it a try. We were very pleasantly surprised! The room is fairly basic, but... More

We had the best stay. Great valve for our dollar. Checked in at 8:55 and the restraunt closed at 9:00. They asked the kitchen to wait a couple minutes for us and they did and were so nice about it. The rooms were super nice and the breakfast was awesome. Great staff.

We stayed here for a family reunion in July. Like a normal summer in Southern Illinois it was hot and humid. The pool is inside with a nice patio around it. There are outdoor activities (sand volleyball, horseshoes, fishing, a nice deck and pond). We had dinner and breakfast at the hotel (breakfast was included with the room). Food was... More

I was shocked by the reviews claiming horrible management and poor service because our experience with Magnuson Grand Hotel management and staff was exactly the opposite. All management and staff were amazing! They were extremely helpful, courteous, hard-working, and responsive to our needs. The events manager, hotel manager, and head chef, as well as other staff, went above and beyond... More

One waiter/ buser for all of us. Several of us went with out drinks and had to clean our own tables off to make room for food. There... More

I returned to this property for the first time since last summer. Trip was for business. This time I got a room away from the pool and it was very quiet. The bed was much more comfortable than the one I had last year. Shower pressure was good and I liked the body soap dispenser in the shower. Very limited... More

We booked six rooms for family members for a funeral in the nearby town. The hotel's indoor pool and game room was great for the many children in our group. They had poolside adjoining rooms for us, so everyone could come and go as they chose. Supper in the restaurant was reasonable and delicious. The free breakfast was good, though... More

Hidden gem in the middle of nowhere. We have stayed here several times when it was a Best Western. Staff friendliness significantly improved from those days! Dated interior, but an amazing deal if you are in the area.
