We booked a room here on our way back to Texas from Tennessee, and I can't even say why I chose this hotel out of all of the other choices! It was the worst! Had two ten year olds begging to leave the minute we opened the door! The room smelled horrible, was filthy, and had holes in the wall!... More

This was the worst not disgusting hotel I have ever seen. Of the 3 rooms we tried to inhabit they were filthy and stunk like cat pee!!!! The locks were broke, the toilet seat gone, water coming from bottom of toilet and the bathtubs were black. Appeared to be a very dangerous place. Do NOT even consider this place. Run... More

The outside appearance is terrible. But we were going to give it the benefit of the doubt. So when we went in to check in they had lost our reservation. Again were going to give it the benefit of the doubt. I can really only give this hotel one plus and that is that the staff was ok. But once... More

The room was dirty. Pee on the toilet and bath tub was very nasty. The beds looked dirty too!!! I ask for toilet to be cleaned and a guy came with a nasty rag and a spray bottle and it took him all of 3 seconds to clean it. Horrible place. Will never stay here again!!!

Dear Guest, Thank you for your feedback. I’m sorry that there was a housekeeping issue that detracted from your stay. We satisfy many guests each week but obviously let you down in this case. I hope you will reconsider and stay with us again. You’ll find that this small misstep is not an indication of how we usually do business,... More

We booked 2 rooms for 1 night. Holes in the bed spread, asked for extra towels and when they brought them, the maintenance/housekeeping person just walked right intot he room without knocking. One of the clerks was very rude. Broken appliances thrown in the grass, trashy looking on the sides and in the back. Very nice looking in front. Doors... More

You caught us at a time when several maintenance tasks around the hotel were undone, but we’re involved in a continual improvement process and have already addressed most of those.

Stayed here for business. Found the staff to be very helpful. Housekeeping was fantastic. The property is an exterior corridor property but I really enjoyed the stay. Rooms were very clean. The property is a good price and also provides a simple breakfast! Thanks for the great customer service!

I called the office and immediately the woman I spoke with went into the room to look for it. When I called back 5 minutes later... More

Thank you for your review of the Magnuson Hotel Baton Rouge. In response to your comments I will say that our Front Desk offers each arriving guest a 15 minute window to inspect a room and request a change for very nearly any reason.
