My family came to South Hill in September with my husbands job and stayed at the Magnuson Hotel because of really good rates.... The management was awful the owner and 2 assistance under him very rude but the front desk clerk Laura was really nice and welcomed my family with open arms. Then we moved into our own home and...

For renovated the room was musty,didn't seem clean and we saw roaches in the bathroom. Noisy at night Luke warm water. For the price I should have expected it but renovated should have meant more.having trouble with describing how bad it was without making my home town look bad.

This hotel is under renovation. There was one room without a lock on it and a door that was swinging open. Pretty creepy. A few stray cats roaming the property. The first room that I was given had such a heavy stink of smoke that I could not stay there. Also, the key wouldn't work in my door, and I... More

We stayed here on our way down south and back up. The location is great and the rooms are clean. You really can't complain for $70s a night. I asked the front desk about the bugs problems people were reporting and she said that there was a change of ownership and the new owners cleaned the place up. Parking was... More

We stopped here on our way to South Carolina. They do not have breakfast included with your stay. There is a Denny's attached to the hotel. We had dinner at Denny's and was impressed with service and food. McDonald's is across the street is where we had breakfast. Front desk was impressive but staff was not friendly. Beds were comfortable... More

Upon arriving at the Days Inn my family and I had very good customer service with the front desk clerk that checked us in. She was very friendly, efficient, checked us in, in a timely manner and gave us a room facing the pool which was great for the kids. We arrived in the rooms and it was very spacious,... More

Stayed here for a short weekend and it was very nice. The lady at the front desk was friendly and mentioned that they had a large family reunion staying. The rooms & bathhrooms are clean. It provided all the basics you want in a motel (microwave and fridge, hairdryer,TV), and the room was clean and quiet. Convenient for late arrivals,... More
