My husband and I traveled to Munising for our anniversary trip. Pictured Rocks was nothing short of breathtaking, and Magnuson Hotel was just what we needed after a long day of hiking. They thought of every detail! We were greeted with Marie's happy and kind demeanor, and she helped us get situated. Our room was clean and comfortable, and they... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a great review. I am very happy you both enjoyed your stay. Munising is a great place that has a lot of nature trails and waterfalls. Hope to see you in the winter. We get lots of snow and if you enjoy cross country skiing or snowmobiling this is the place. More

Marie runs a crack professional hotel which is clean and extremely organised. In fact she reminds me of my old headmistress from primary school who has succeeded in keeping all the aspects of the hotel functioning. The hotel is clean, the housekeepers are excellent. Carleen is a credit to the hotel in every way. Nothing is too much trouble for... More

My husband and I stayed here last week and we're pleased with this hotel. It was clean and the breakfast was good. It was very close to several waterfalls and Picture Rocks. I would suggest getting a room on the back side. There was some noise from the highway. Otherwise, it's a good place to crash.

Bed was extremely comfortable. Did not hear a sound all night. Hot tub & sauna were unexpected treats for the price. I've seen people ripping the breakfast. Is it 5-star gourmet where they come around with a pepper grinder for your eggs? No. But it's FREE, and was certainly more than good enough for us. We will stay there again,... More

Husband and I stayed here the night before exploring Pictured Rock. The first hotel we called was booked, and I stumbled upon this gem on here. I wasn't disappointed. The room smelled so fresh and clean. The cleaning staff here does a great job! Room was spacious and the jacuzzi was nice after all the hiking we did that day... More

We recently got back home from a 2 night stay at the Magnuson. The first night we arrived very late in the night and the lady at the front desk was very nice.

This hotel was amazing! Everything is super clean and the beds are so comfy I woke up thinking I was still at home. You also get a 10% off discount at a local restaurant which is nice! I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone coming through the area.

My husband & I stayed here for one night, on our roadtrip to Minnesota. No frills, and not a five-star fancy hotel, but a pleasant, restful stay, as a haven from the road.
