The rooms are a little updated & clean. The staff was exceptionally friendly. We came upon this hotel and thought it looked very quaint and just the perfect 2-night stay place for my daughter and me.Breakfast was ok.We did like quite rooms.

We were late and Washington seemed to be a good stop off. Our usual choice for a hotel was booked. The road signs said Quality Inn this exit, so the AAA book came out and we saw a three star rating for this hotel. We went to the street address and found a Magnuson Inn. The front desk clerk said...

Stayed here two nights. All the front desk people we dealt with were very nice. The first morning we had to leave before the breakfast bar was open. I asked if there was a banana available and the desk clerk let us go ahead and eat. Which helped us out a lot. The food was typical for a hotel free... More

Labor Day, so they guy on reception didn't know which rooms were clean - the housekeepers had had the day off. Eventually found a clean room. Corridors were stuffy, no fresh air. The room was OK on first look, but the coffee machine didn't work, the remote control for the Tv didn't work and the clock was set to the... More

Stayed here a few years ago when it was Holiday Inn Express. Forgot how poor the neighborhood was, but that was nothing compared to the hotel. No elevator and the hallways were at least 100 degrees especially in the stairwell. The A/C in the hall was torn apart. Our room A/C also did not work so we ended up buying... More

Very outdated property. Clean. Everything is cheap: towels, tissues, toilet paper. Still using things from when it was a Holiday Inn Express. Breakfast is a joke! NO ELEVATOR. Check out done the old fashioned way...when you leave. Understaffed.

I ended up staying here while traveling on my way to the coast for the New Year's. I must say that the service at this particular Quality Inn was excellent. The desk person was very nice and social. Had a good conversation with him during the booking process and the room I had was quite spacious and the king size... More

It's nothing to write home about. It's a bit outdated, but for the price what can you expect. It was decent and clean. The staff was friendly and helpful. Everything is right up the road (walmart, mcdonalds, burger king, etc.). I'd stay here again if I'm only in town for a night.
