Clean and spacious rooms were very appreciated. It is right off the freeway but a couple minutes to get to it which was worth the drive for the value. Be sure to eat before you book as there is nothing quick and close. Love the organic soaps

Was passing through and came across this hotel. Staff were friendly and rate was only 89.00 for a great room. Hotel is quiet, clean and has 24 hour pool, hot tub, fitness room and business office. Plus, their breakfast uses real eggs. :)

We decided to hold our Family Christmas In Madison WI this year. We spent a weekend checking our the Hotels. At the Magnuson Grand Hotel, we met the General Manager Aaron. We told him what we were looking for. We needed (5) rooms for (2) nights. Santa gave us an early Christmas Present. That being Aaron & The Magnuson Hotel.... More

Don't think I've ever been to a hotel that offered 24-hour access to their pool and jacuzzi which was amazing after arriving late and thrilled to be able to relax and enjoy it. The beds were comfortable, room spacious and clean, front desk staff were very friendly and helpful. I really enjoyed the hot breakfast items, fresh blueberries and rasberries... More

I would like to thank the staff for all of their assistance during our stay. We booked the Magnuson for our wedding guests to stay following our wedding reception. And they truly bent over backwards to take care of our guests, especially the manager, Aaron. He ensured that all of our guests had transportation, on behalf of the hotel to... More

We booked for my daughters wedding, and continually needed more rooms, which they came up with and also endured all of our early check ins. They also took us to and from our wedding. I left my camera there when we left and of course it was left with Aaron the manager. Can't say enough about how nice they all... More

Stayed here for second time last Sat and Sun. Mainly went there for two or three reasons. First off, it is a short walk to Ho Chunk casino, it has a very nice and clean indoor pool and whirlpool that stays open 24 hrs, and because the accomodations are pretty nice for a reasonable price. The staff was very helpful,... More

I had one of the most horrific experiences I have ever had at this hotel. I booked a whirlpool suite, and upon turning it on, the whirlpool jet water smelled like sewage and began spraying black flakes/goo into the water. Allow I jumped out quickly, I still spent 30 mins washing this out of my hair. It was absolutely disgusting.... More

Nice room but we were given a handicap room without notifying us. It left very little counter space in bathroom. Toilet wobbled and door to bathroom was restricted by floor strip. These are items that should have been noticed by housekeeping and repaired. Breakfast is meager but adequate.
