They just recently remodeled their hotel everything from carpet to new paint this is my second time staying at this hotel and I'm 100% satisfied with this place and the way it's being ran. Everyone that works here is nice and very friendly also a plus that it's right next to a casino

Once again Aaron, the manager,was with us every step of the way. From the months before, to check-in to check-out, he was there for us, making sure everything... More

I have stayed at the Magnuson 3 consecutive years, each stay a week in duration. I have never been disappointed. Is this the Ritz-Carlton? No. That being said, it offers a touch of luxury at a very reasonable rate... Think value for dollars spent here, people. The King whirlpool suite ( which is what I've always rented ) is extra...

Stayed here for one night two weeks ago. The front desk was okay, but not very welcoming. Our rooms weren't quite ready, but we were there prior to check in time, so that's totally understandable. The hallways were a little scary looking with red primer on the walls, but they are undergoing renovations, and that does take time, so there... More

Room smelled bad. Bathroom Floor was sticky. Carpeting was moist and sticky. Breakfast sucked- orange juice was 75% water and a disappointing selection. They do not keep up this hotel. Paint missing. Chucks of tile missing.

We stayed in a room with a king sized bed. Although everything is not brand new, it is definitely clean and well looked after. As we were staying here for six nights, we had a chance to get to know the feel of the place. Ward, our breakfast host, was friendly and efficient (although the food at breakfast was the... More

The hotel rooms were roomy and clean. There was free breakfast in the lobby that includes the usual toast, pastries, eggs, juices, etc. I was hoping that they would offer yogurts as this is my usual breakfast. The water pressure and temperature of the shower was perfect. They have a small gym and heated pool but I did not have... More

Everything about this hotel was A+. It was clean, orderly and the staff was outstanding -- pleasant and very helpful. Only request is that they pop the popcorn more often. Also, breakfast is a lot more then "continental". It included eggs, potatoes, make own waffles, little muffins, fruit, cereal plus oatmeal. Would definitely stay here again.

First trip to Madison and the Wisconsin Visitor's Center recommended this property. They were spot on. although the hotel is in a remote/rural location, it is freeway adjacent and easy on/off access. The hotel is very well-maintained and desk staff were polite and attentive. Although the property was prretty well booked, we were given a room away from elevators, stairs,... More
