Lobby air conditioning not working, pool ice cold, hot tub not working. Room cobwebs in corners, missing pillows, sink stopper broken, security latch broken off completely, light cover in bathroom missing, and all this is in a handicapped accessible room. There is even more that I was unhappy with but you get my drift. Management doesn't care about their customers... More

Stopped here at 1:30 am. I asked for a room on 1st level since we are two grandmother's traveling with two children. Male clerk gave us an upstairs room, yet we passed by several unoccupied rooms on ground level. Lack of crowded parking lot indicative of plenty of rooms. I would choose a hotel on the north side of Childress.... More

We were on our way from NM to Dallas and stopped here for the night. The hotel is set back a ways from the highway, so the room was quiet and peaceful. The drapes were so darkening that we almost slept through breakfast! Breakfast was worth it, delicious and plentiful. The staff was friendly, helpful, and eager to please. This... More

We were traveling from Wyoming to Houston and it was late and we needed a place to stay. We stopped at 2 other hotels that the staff thought it terribly late and not very pleased to get up and tell us they didn't have anything for us if we didn't have reservations. (It was almost 11:00 pm) So we went... More

I just started my trip from Denver to SXSW for the first time and I decided to try a Magnuson Hotel, I have been hearing about this new franchise. And believe me they have High Standards of Service and Hospitatlity. The Heater was already on in my room because they know it still gets cold at night in North Texas... More

I was passing through Childress, TX and was in need of a room for the night. I was towing a 24' enclosed trailer behind my Chevy Silverado. I noticed the huge parking area for trailers or 18 wheelers so I stopped there. It was a very nice stay. The room was clean and was what would be expected. Lots of... More

Larger than average rooms with mini fridge and a real good a/c in ours anyway. Indoor pool and spa my 10yr old granddaughter loved. Decent hot breakfast included. Comfy bed, clean and neat. Large parking lot if you are pulling something makes parking much easier. Rate was $94 for a Monday night for a two queen room, 2 adults one... More

Not sure if i would stay here if we did not need to find a place that had trailer-friendly parking and allow us to bring our small... More
