Had a lovely stay at the Magnuson. Friendly helpful staff and large spacious room. Lovely swimming pool and close to amenities. A lot of traffic but couldn't be heard in the room. Air conditioning was a life saver for me not being from a hot climate. Overall an enjoyable stay 10 day stay :)

The beds are uncomfortable the breakfast is inedible There is loud traffic noise including a train. I don't understand how this "hotel" could ever get a good review.This is just a low budget motel at best. On a positive note the shower gets very hot.

Stayed here for first time recently--its actually pretty convenient to the center of Baton Rouge even though it's across the river. Fairly new renovation and quiet. Had no real problems or complaints.
