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 :)

It smelled of sigarettes, but the bathroom was clean. The breakfast was allmost okey, like any US motel. That means that the "coffee" was some hot... More

Floor is dirty, sink was dirty, no refill toilet paper, had to use tissues! There's a loud train at 2am. And just as I thought we may have gotten the one bad room of... More

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.
